Whether you’re on Team Iron Man or Team Cap, you have to admit that Robert Downey Jr. has a heart of gold.
During his trip to London for the Captain America: Civil War premiere, People.com reported that Downey took the time to stop by the Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH
for short) ahead of the film’s premiere.

In the series of photos, posted by the official Great Ormond Twitter account, Downey is all smiles with the kids, such as 7-year old Ethan Miller, dressed as Iron Man himself, who suffers from the rare blood disease ITP as well as type 1 diabetes.
Downey is no stranger to bringing joy to children. He recently donned a Winnie the Pooh Tigger costume in order to invite Daniel Keyte, who suffers from cystic fibrosis, to the Los Angeles premiere of the film and last March, he also presented another young boy, Alex Pring with his very own customized Iron Man
bionic prosthetic arm.
We think that Robert is the coolest dude on the planet but acts like this also show us that he is also a
beautiful person, inside and out. Stay classy, Mr. Downey.
