WATCH: Robert Downey Jr. Surprises Air Force Base During Screening Of The Judge
Robert Downey Jr. surprised hundreds of service members at an Ohio Air Force base on Sunday.
The actor showed up to the Wright-Patterson facility, near Dayton, for an early screening of his new movie, The Judge.
In the 900-person audience was not only military personnel, but also their friends and family.
Downey said of his appearance, “It’s just a way of reminding myself that there are people out there who put their lives on the line so I can go out and make movies.”
“Their sacrifice allows us to have that freedom,” he added to reporters.
The star took to Facebook afterward to share a few personal photos, and wrote, “Had a blast w the airmen and airwomen at Wright Patterson Air Force Base. Such an honor. The Judge #airforceflyfightwin #heroes.”
The Judge opens in theaters on Friday.
