Robert Downey Jr talks Iron Man 3 – and discusses quitting acting

Hollywood star Robert Downey Jr. told fans at a press conference in South Korea that he has no plans to quit acting just yet.

"I don't intend to quit anytime too soon, as long as I am not too old," he said today.

The star is in South Korea promoting the latest film in the popular Iron Man franchise.

Downey Jr. reprises his role as the good guy Tony Stark in Iron Man 3, this time fighting against a villain called The Mandarin, played by British actor Ben Kingsley.

Speaking at the conference, Downey Jr. thanked his "Korean brothers and sisters" for their support over the years.

"This has been such an important market for us back from the very first time we came here," he said.

Also returning to the franchise is actress Gwyneth Paltrow who stars alongside an A-List line up including Guy Pearce, Rebecca Hall, Don Cheadle and Jon Favreau.
