Self-obsession just isn’t Mark Ruffalo’s cup of tea.
“I’ve never Googled myself on the Internet,” he said, which explains why he is not familiar with “Science Bros,” an Internet subculture celebrating the special friendship the characters Ruffalo and Robert Downey Jr. played in The Avengers.
Feel to Google image search “Science Bros” – like Ruffalo just did.
“Are you joking? There’s all this art of me and Robert?” – Ruffalo was laughing so hard that he could barely speak.
“It’s me and Robert! Look at this! There’s thousands of them!…This is awesome. I’ve never heard of it. Why hasn’t anyone told me about that?”
“So, are they all quasi-homoerotic?” he asked. “”Yeah! I love it; it’s awesome. I endorse it 100 percent. You know what it is? It’s open-source creativity. I’m going to call him and tell him, and he’s going to laugh his ass off,” Ruffalo said. “He’ll love that.”
