[From MTV News] Robert Downey Jr. and Don Cheadle had Gwyneth Paltrow chucklingwhen they said their "Iron Man" suits were cumbersome and uncomfortable. But is Paltrow really tougher than the guys? Cheadle has a different story.
"Because she didn't wear it," Cheadle told MTV News about his "Iron Man 3" costar. "Hers was drawn on. Hers was CGI."
Cheadle plays Colonel James Rhodes, who wears the Iron Patriot armor. He said he was disappointed that the suit hadn't gotten more comfortable since he donned it in "Iron Man 2." "I mean, that's a chief complaint I logged," Cheadle explained. "It's like, 'You guys didn't get this more refined? It still weighs this much? I still can't articulate the arms to touch my face when I wear it.' But we know what it is when we sign up to do it, and it was great to come back and recreate the character again."
Check out the video above, and head to MTV News to get the whole scoop.
Marvel's Phase Two of movies rockets to new heights with "Iron Man Three," a surprisingly funny and explosive sequel with Robert Downey Jr. back as the man in the iron suit facing off against a mysterious new enemy known as the Mandarin. Also back is Don Cheadle for his second stint playing Col. James 'Rhodey' Rhodes, Tony's best friend and the man who suits up in the War Machine armor that has been painted in a red, silver and blue patriotic design re-named the Iron Patriot.
Cheadle, who took over the role of Rhodey from Terrence Howard in "Iron Man 2," is a versatile actor who is just as at home in the porn world of "Boogie Nights" as he is in a superhero's iron suit or in his Oscar-nominated role in "Hotel Rwanda."
We sat down with the Iron Patriot himself as he talked about Rhodey's superhero potential, what he spent his first professional paycheck on and whether or not he thinks he's a film snob. Get More »
The "porn star name game" is a time-honored tradition in America.
It's a game pretty much anyone can play, depending on the rules — we employ the First Name: First Pet, Last Name: Street You Grew Up On method (our apologies to those with allergies, maybe you had a goldfish?). And the results are, without fail, hilarious.
We asked 100 of our favorite movie stars in Hollywood — including Emma Watson, Keira Knightley, Megan Fox, Ryan Gosling, Paul Rudd, Anne Hathaway, Matt Damon, Katie Holmes, Jon Hamm, Emma Stone and Neil Patrick Harris — for their porn star names. They did not let us down. Click through the gallery for all 100.

Riviera"), Joanna Varikos ("Angel 14") and Kase Wickman ("Blake Sisters").
We're less than two months away from the hotly anticipated release of Marvel's latest superhero blockbuster, "Iron Man 3," and the excitement just got ratcheted up a notch thanks to the release of a brand new, full length theatrical trailer — and what appears to be an entire army of Iron Men.

Black Widow's sitting this one out.
Scarlett Johansson has revealed that she actually won't be kicking any asses as Natasha Romanoff in "Iron Man 3," according to an interview with Screen Rant.
ScarJo doesn't give a reason for her non-participation, but it's safe to assume that scheduling issues are probably to blame, as the "We Bought a Zoo" star is set to film both "Hitchcock" and Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut this year. As the "Iron Man" sequel is set to commence with production in the next few months, that might be one gig too many. Get More »
"Yes, destroy all the trees, ha ha ha!"
This sounds like a job for Captain Planet, though unfortunately the eco-friendly superhero looks to have spent a little too much time in the poppy field and taken the act of "going green" to much more sinister extremes.
Take note, makers of superhero movies: they should be a little more like this from now on. In fact, if you could just somehow stretch this two-and-a-half-minute video to two hours, you're pretty much set. Get More »
Wait a minute... Rhodey's getting his own movie?
Apparently, the first steps have been taken toward such a thing, according to Don Cheadle himself. The actor who took over the role of James Rhodes from Terrence Howard in "Iron Man 2" told MTV News that a writer has been hired to tackle the "War Machine" spin-off.
"They're developing it now, they're working on that," Cheadle said. "I think they've hired a writer, so we'll see how it goes. It would be a lot of fun." Get More »
The name of the movie is "The Green Hornet," but everyone knows that the title character isn't the coolest costumed cat to appear in Michel Gondry's new flick.
That honor goes to Kato (Jay Chou), ostensibly the Green Hornet's driver and sidekick, but also a kung-fu badass capable of delivering the smackdown to evil wherever he finds it.
He's just the latest entrant in a lineup of superhero second bananas who shine as brightly as the guys they back up, so join us as we salute the guys behind the guys. Get More »
