Fans are often up to pay ridiculous amounts of money to get a hold of their favorite celeb’s belongings. Those items can range from apparel to goods. However, it’s not uncommon for weird things to get sold if they’re used by a celeb. This time, gum chewed by Rober Downey Jr. has made its way onto eBay.

Jon Favreau released Iron Man to theatres over 15 years ago. It altered the course of Marvel’s cinematic world and, more broadly, superheroes. Jon recently won a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in recognition of creating such incredible works of art for the community.

Given the ceremony and its purpose, RDJ was getting more attention than Favreau. It’s all due to chewing gum that the Iron Man actor chewed and threw away. A seller has picked that up and has listed the gum on eBay for a whopping $55k claiming that it’s from RDJ.

The main event was attended by RDJ himself. By removing chewed gum from his mouth and adhering to Jon’s brand-new star, he created a special moment. It was “just to make it official,” Downey said in jokingly.


The seller claims he was able to snag the gum, right where RDJ left it. Now, it’s apparently up for grabs “in the same condition” he got it.  The seller is super confident it’s the real deal and says the buyer can even test the gum for RDJ’s DNA. We’ll see how that goes.

Well, we can only imagine how someone would prove the authenticity of the item in question. However, it wouldn’t be surprising to see a bunch of fans flocking and battling it out to get a discarded gum from RDJ. If they choose to buy it for such a price, might as well “stick” to it for their whole life.
