Ever since Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert Downey Jr. co-starred in their first superhero flick, Iron Man, back in 2008, they’ve had a great working relationship and off-screen friendship. But now that Gwyneth is newly married to Brad Falchuk, a source recently revealed to Star magazine that Brad is getting jealous of his wife spending so much time with Robert.
“Gwyn’s so in awe of Robert and always has been, and Brad’s pretty sick of it,” an insider said. “When they’re together, it’s like nobody else is in the room, and she’s forever calling him for advice on lifestyle matters, as well as work projects.”

Since Gwyneth, 46, is still close friends with her ex-husband, Chris Martin, Brad has allegedly been very concerned about his wife’s relationship with Robert, 53. “He doesn’t want Robert fawning over his woman,” the source revealed. “Brad doesn’t want him hanging around.”
After starring in the first Iron Man, Gwyneth and Robert have co-stareed in five more superhero films together, with their latest being Avengers: Infinity War. In September, Gwyn shared a sweet photo of a lunch date that she had with Robert. In the pic, the pair were seen leaning in close to take the photo and Gwyn captioned the pic, “Lunchtime #pepperony.”
She also gave Robert a great birthday shout-out on April 4, when she shared a photo of them both standing with their co-star, Tom Holland, who Gwyn jokingly called “the other guy” in the caption. “I love April 4th because it was the day god gave us @robertdowneyjr. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, dear heart. Love me and that other guy in the photo,” she wrote.
It’s clear that Gwyneth and Robert have grown to be close friends over time. Though Gwyn’s rep told Star that there isn’t anything going on between the two Iron Man actors, we can understand why Brad might be feeling a little bit jealous.
