Bautista has always been incredibly humble about his career, and despite the bang-up job he's done in the film's he's been in, it's understandable that even he would be a bit nervous about meeting Robert Downey Jr., who's an undeniable genius of the acting craft. Speaking with Good Morning America, Bautista made it clear how much of a fan he was of Downey's:
