Poignant “Iron Man 3” fact:

The scene of Pepper with Tony’s helmet (top), according to screenwriter Drew Pearce, was inspired by the heart-wrenching real-life scene of famed Brazilian Formula One race-car driver Ayrton Senna’s sister, Viviane, embracing his helmet (bottom) at Senna’s funeral in 1994 (he died in a terrible crash in Imola, Italy during a Grand Prix race). 

Senna was a hero in Brazil, and his death was considered to be a national tragedy.
