SUNDERLAND, Mass. -- Robert Downey Jr. may not be a real superhero, but he sure acted like one for a little Massachusetts boy.

Heather Denno took her 1 1/2-year-old son Jaxson to watch filming for the movie "The Judge," starring Mr. Downey, in her hometown of Sunderland this week.

Mr. Downey, star of the "Iron Man" movies, spotted the little boy and went over to say hello.

Heather Denno told Jaxson that Mr. Downey was "Iron Man."

Confused because of the lack of the trademark metallic red-and-gold suit, Jaxson burst into tears.

Mr. Downey put a comforting hand on the boy and calmed him.

Heather Denno tells The Boston Globe that Mr. Downey was "sweet and nurturing," and she could tell he's a dad.
