Robert Downey Jr. is a happily married man, but that’s not stopping him from brushing up on How to Talk to Girls. The project is an adaptation of Alec Greven’s book that revolves around advice on how to deal with the opposite sex. Sounds pretty normal, right? Well what if I told you the advice dispenser was nine-years old at the time the book was published? BOOM! I’ll give you a second to pick your jaw up off the ground.
Now you may be thinking to yourself, “But Downey is much older than nine.” Plans are to make a comedy in the tone of Big. BOOM! They just destroyed the entire concept of the book. I’d rather see a nine-year old lothario stealing women away from full grown men, rather than a man-child showing ladies how to make their alphabet soup spell “poop.” (THR)
