As it turns out, RDJ had already verified this in a 2010 interview.

“She (Gwyneth Paltrow) said... I had no idea what I was doing, and it didn't feel right. ‘You know what?' I said. First and first, we're all friends, so it would be strange if I came across as attractive to you when we were shooting - which, by the way, I've done in movies and it makes people uncomfortable! So what makes you think I'm creeping you out?'” the MCU actor had remarked.

Despite their friendship's awkward moments, Gwyneth Paltrow and Robert Downey Jr continue to appreciate and enjoy their friendship to this day.
