Robert Downey Jr.'s mediation methods involve thoughts of stuffed-crust pizza and Third Eye Blind sing-alongs -- at least when he's donning a wig and is perched on top of animal skins on The Tonight Show sound stage.

The Judge star sat very still as he participated in an "Intense Staredown" with late-night host Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, and his facial expressions made the sketch worth watching.

"Osprey, I await. Pray upon my loins," Downey Jr.'s thoughts are heard. "Mount my torso like the bull of Poseidon."

He continues to ponder, "Earth, air, water fire, Dominos stuffed-crust pepperoni pizza. Nom nom nom nom nom nom nom."

The 49-year-old actor's interview with Fallon was equally amusing. Downey Jr. is expecting his second child with wife Susan Downey and mused that he has some career aspirations for his baby girl. "Our daughter will probably be an actress," the Iron Man actor joked. "That's a stable career."

Downey Jr. recently appeared on Ellen DeGeneres' daytime talk show and opened up about his moving tribute to his late mother. See the emotional chat, below:
