Pepper Potts and Tony Stark have tackled numerous supervillains, but on Sunday, the duo took on something a little less action-packed: the beach.

Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow, who play the titular character and his love interest, respectively, in Marvel’s Iron Man franchise, posed for a sandy selfie together, shared to the Goop girl’s Instagram.

In the photo, Downey, 50, and Paltrow, 42, stand in front of a beach dining setup.

Paltrow appears makeup-free as she gives a slight smile for her fictional boyfriend. Downey – wearing a straw, camo fedora and brown plastic frames – keeps it straight-faced.

“@robertdowneyjr how I love thee,” Paltrow wrote, adding the onscreen duo’s couple name. “#pepperony.”

Downey had recently been spotted in the Hamptons, where he stepped out with his family.

Just last weekend, Downey also referenced his and Paltrow’s Iron Man characters on social media, sharing a portrait of Stark and Iron Man made of spices.

The image appears to be made of salt and pepper.

“Hopefully Pepper won’t get jealous of salt,” he wrote, making a punny reference to the Stark CEO.
