Don’t know how many people are aware that Robert Downey, Sr. was a underground film maker who admits to giving his daughter, Allyson, and son Robert, drugs at a prepubescent age. Sure could explain Robert’s drug addiction and the long road he had to take to get clean. His frequent arrests made headlines and tended to make people forget that he was, and is, a good actor. He seems to have turned his life around. Being cast in the Iron Man films revived his career and garnered him rave reviews and several year end awards from film critics and film associations world wide. He starred as Tony Stark/Iron Man in the 2010 sequel and will, again, in Iron Man 3 which will be released sometime in 2013. Also, watch for Tony Stark/Iron man to appear in The Avengers, another superhero film with an all star cast.
It’s great to see a talented actor who hit a really low point in his career make a comeback the way Robert Downey, Jr. has!
Sure he’s been in some trouble now and then, and now and then, and now and then, but that doesn’t mean vintage actor Robert Downey Jr isn’t still one sexy guy. And he’s done some pretty good stuff lately. Like the action/comedy Tropic Thunder, Iron Man and Iron Man 2, and The Soloist with Jamie Foxx. So, hopefully his troubles are behind him and we can look forward to more Robert Downey Jr films.

Robert Downey, Jr., born Robert John Downey, Jr. in New York City, became a member of the famed “Brat Pack” when he appeared in films such as Less Than Zero and The Pickup Artist. His performance in these films led to parts in bigger films like Air America, Soapdish and Chaplin which won him an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor.
It is true that Downey had his problems with alcohol and drugs but he finally got his life back on track and made a stunning comeback as the title character in the film adaptation of Marvel Comics Iron Man. The film made almost $100 million in US box offices on its opening weekend and garnered Downey rave reviews for his performance. After appearing in Tropic Thunder he received his second Oscar nomination, this time as Best Supporting Actor.
Robert Downey is quoted as having said: “The lesson is that you can still make mistakes and be forgiven”. Take a look at that picture and you can’t help saying, “Robert Downey, Jr. you are gorgeous and we forgive you”!
