Yahoo! interviewed Robert Downey Jr. about his Ironman role, during which he revealed how irritable the Hud scenes (heads-up display) can be.

Downey Jr. said:

“When you do the Hud work, usually it’s kind of the last thing in the schedule and you’re going back and essentially living the movie again in close-up, tired.”

These types of scenes can be particularly difficult because the actor is isolated from the rest of the cast and left to interact with nothing but a green screen.

He did mention one of the perks of these kinds of shots however:

“We had the luxury of being efficient enough to sometimes say, ‘Stop, stop. Wait a second. Let’s not just shoot these next 20 lines. Let’s look at the scene and how can we make it a little better or different.’”
