Robert Downey Jr - Downey, Jr. Suggested Transvestite Scene For Sherlock

Robert Downey, JR. dressed in women's clothes on the set of his new Sherlock Holmes movie after suggesting the idea to producers.
The actor has revealed his super-sleuth character was supposed to go undercover as a priest for a scene in upcoming sequel Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, but he felt a transvestite disguise would be more interesting.
Downey, Jr. was surprised when movie bosses accepted his idea and he was left feeling "a little self-conscious" when the time came for him to dress up as a woman.
He tells E! Online, "I thought I looked like if my sister was training for the Russian Olympics... on steroids... Here's the dumb thing. This was my idea. It was not in the script. I think originally it was a priest, and I said, 'Oh come on, that's dumb... that'll be obvious.'
"When I walked on set I felt a little self-conscious about the fact that most people knew it was my idea. 'Did Robert want his transvestite day, and did the studio accommodate him?'"
