Rami Malek and Robert Downey Jr. might be firm friends now, but the beginning of their friendship started with a misunderstanding.
The Bohemian Rhapsody star, 38, revealed he didn’t believe it was actually Robert, 54, who was trying to get in touch with him, thinking it was someone else trying to prank him.
The pair star together in the upcoming movie Dolittle, and they revealed on the Ellen DeGeneres show how they first got in touch.
Robert told Ellen: ‘I was such a fan of Mr. Robot, I basically emailed you, and I was serial texting you and I was trying to FaceTime you and you didn’t let me weird you out and now we’re friends.’
Rami admitted he didn’t believe the messages were really from Robert, explaining: ‘I couldn’t even believe it was you.
‘For a second, I got the email from Robert and I thought, “Okay, somebody’s playing tricks on me.” And then they kept coming and they were so witty.
‘It got to the point where I thought it could be no one else but you. This friendship has continued, you came to visit me on set, I couldn’t believe that.’
