Television

‘Ally McBeal’

Despite his personal turmoil in the early 2000s, Downey continued working. He gave a memorable performance in Wonder Boys (2000) and had roles in several other films, including Auto Motives and Lethargy. Additionally, Downey made the move to the small screen in 2000, becoming a regular cast member of the popular show Ally McBeal, starring Calista Flockhart. With this new role, Downey once again reminded fans and critics of his talent, likeability and versatility. He went on to pick up a 2001 Golden Globe Award, and won a Screen Actor’s Guild Award soon after.

But Downey’s increasingly complicated personal life pressed his employer’s patience. After that second arrest in April 2001, Downey’s tenure on Ally McBeal came to an end; producers had decided to wrap production of the final episodes of the season without the actor. Around this same time, lawyers reached an agreement with prosecutors that required Downey to plead no contest to cocaine-related charges. He was sentenced to three years’ probation — a ruling that allowed him to continue live-in drug treatment instead of returning to prison.

Marriage to Susan Levin

Despite his troubled history with the law, Downey has a much more stable home life these days. He married producer Susan Levin in 2005, and the couple welcomed their first child together on February 7, 2012. They named their son Exton Elias. On November 4, 2014, Downey and Levin welcomed their second child, a daughter named Avri. In December 2015, California Governor Jerry Brown pardoned Downey for the 1996 drug conviction that sent him to prison for a year.

One of the people to play a key role in the actor’s turnaround was Mel Gibson, with whom Downey co-starred in Air America (1990). Gibson stuck by his friend’s side, even as Downey’s life was completely unraveling, and when Downey was unable to get something as routine as an insurance bond due to his past troubles with the law, Gibson found him work, casting him in the 2003 film The Singing Detective. The two actors remain close friends today.

Box Office Hits

‘Gothika,’ ‘Good Night, and Good Luck,’ ‘Zodiac’

Working his way back to prominence, Downey in 2003 starred opposite Halle Berry in Gothika, which fared better at the box office than it did with the critics. He continued to dedicate himself to his craft, playing a supporting role in the critically acclaimed Good Night, and Good Luck (2005) and the lead in the independent drama A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints (2006), which he also co-produced. In Zodiac (2007), Downey played a journalist who gets wrapped up in the hunt for the infamous Zodiac Killer.

‘Iron Man,’ ‘Tropic Thunder’

In 2008 Downey transformed from an often critically admired actor to a box office star. He played the wealthy industrialist-turned-crime fighter Tony Stark in the smash hit Iron Man, based on the Marvel Comics superhero, which grossed more than $318 million domestically and led to the release of sequels in 2010 and 2013.

Taking a huge risk, Downey also starred in the comedy Tropic Thunder (2008) with Ben Stiller and Jack Black; he played a white actor pretending to be a black actor in this war movie spoof. His efforts received mostly positive reviews, with Variety magazine’s Todd McCarthy stating that “the audacity of Downey’s performance” was one of “the best reasons to see the film.” Downey garnered numerous accolades for his performance in Tropic Thunder, including Oscar (Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role), Golden Globe (Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture) and Screen Actors Guild (Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role) award nominations.

‘The Soloist’ and ‘Sherlock Holmes’

Downey went on to share top billing with Jamie Foxx in The Soloist (2009), which tells the story about the friendship between a Los Angeles journalist (Downey) and a homeless Juilliard-trained musician (Foxx). The film registered a respectable showing at the box office and earned the praise from critics, who lauded Downey and Foxx for their performances.

Demonstrating he isn’t afraid of blockbusters (or English accents), Downey co-starred in the Guy Ritchie directed Sherlock Holmes in 2009, alongside Jude Law as Dr. John Watson. The duo teamed up again for the 2011 sequel, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows.

‘The Avengers’ Franchise

The crime fighting picked up again in 2012, when Downey’s Iron Man character was back in action in The Avengers, a movie that featured a bevy of Hollywood talent, including Don Cheadle (Colonel James “Rhodey” Rhodes), Mark Ruffalo (Hulk), Samuel Jackson (Nick Fury) and Scarlett Johansson (Black Widow), among others.

After a turn as sharp city lawyer Hank Palmer opposite Robert Duvall in the drama The Judge (2014), Downey reprised his Tony Stark/Iron Man dual role for Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015); Captain America: Civil War (2016); Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017); Avengers: Infinity War (2018) and Avengers: Endgame (2019).

‘Dolittle’

After a half-decade of appearing solely in Marvel-branded features, Downey reemerged as host of the YouTube series The Age of AI beginning in late 2019. In January 2020, he starred as a veterinarian who talks to animals in Dolittle, based on the classic children’s book series by British author Hugh Lofting.

Upcoming Projects

Some of Downey’s upcoming projects include Marvel’s Black Widow and the sports comedy-drama All-Star Weekend.

For his part, Downey isn’t taking this professional and personal resurgence for granted. “I think part of my destiny has to be realizing that I’m not the poster boy for drug abuse,” he told reporters in 2005. “I’m just this guy who has a really strong sense of wanting home and wanting foundation and having not had it, I now choose to create it.”

Early Life

Famed actor Robert Downey Jr. was born on April 4, 1965, in New York City, the son of the avant-garde filmmaker Robert Downey Sr., who is best known for the 1969 film Putney Swope. Downey began acting as a young child. His mother, Elsie, was an actress who instilled in her son a love of performing. Raised in Greenwich Village with his older sister, Alison, Downey made his film debut playing a puppy in his father’s film, Pound (1970), in which actors played dogs. He would go on to have small parts in several more of his father’s films.

Downey’s parents divorced when he was 13, and the young actor ended up living in Los Angeles with his father. At the age of 16, however, he dropped out of high school and was on the move again, relocating to New York to live with his mother.

When Did Robert Downey Jr. Start Acting and How Did He Become Famous?

Robert Downey Jr. is one of the most successful and likable stars in Hollywood. His 10-year stint as Iron Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has solidified him as a bankable actor and gained him millions of fans across the globe. For fans of Downey’s older work, it may seem like he has been in the industry for ages, but it has been a long road for the actor to get to where he is today. Let’s take a look at when Downey Jr. got his start and the role that made him famous.

Robert Downey Jr. was only a young kid when he got his start

Believe it not, Downey Jr. landed his first acting role nearly 50 years ago playing Puppy in the film Pound. But even diehard fans likely won’t recognize the star in his first role, considering he was only 5 years old when the film debuted. Pound was written and directed by Robert Downey Sr., so we’d be willing to venture that there was a little favoritism in the casting.

After his debut performance, the future star landed a few small roles, but it wasn’t until 1985 that he started to get his first taste of success. It was then that the actor landed a role that many aspiring actors only dream of landing, a spot on the Saturday Night Live cast.

From the time of his departure on SNL to the early 2000s, Downey Jr. was in high demand. His first gig after SNL was as Derek Lutz in Back to School. In 1987, the actor starred as Julian in Less Than Zero. In the film, Downey Jr. played a rich boy who struggled with drug addiction. The role earned him critical praise and as well as attention from Hollywood execs.

Five years later, Downey Jr. played Charles Chaplin in the biopic Chaplin. The film earned the actor his first Oscar nomination.

Over the next several years, Downey Jr. appeared in several more movies, eventually landing a recurring role on the hit legal drama Ally McBeal. The actor played Calista Flockhart’s love interest Larry Paul. Though the role earned the star a Primetime Emmy and was popular among fans, behind the scenes, the actor was struggling.

Drug addiction threatened to end Robert Downey Jr.’s career

In 1996, Downey Jr. was pulled over for speeding. Cops found drugs and a gun in his car. The actor was put on probation, but in 1997 he was sentenced to 180 days in jail for missing several drug tests.

Downey Jr.’s legal troubles continued and he was sentenced to another year in jail, this time undergoing drug treatment while incarcerated. Just a week after being released, the actor landed his role on Ally McBeal. But the job wasn’t enough to keep him from drugs and Downey Jr. was fired from the show after he was found wandering the streets barefoot and high on drugs.

After several stints in rehab and jail, it looked like there was no saving the actor or his career. Downey Jr. was spiraling and Hollywood was no longer willing to take the risk. But then, Downey Jr. met producer Susan Levin.

Downey Jr. credits Levin with helping him kick drugs for good. Levin reportedly told the actor that she wouldn’t marry him unless he gave up drugs for good. Downey Jr. ditched the drugs and the couple married in 2005.

Throughout Hollywood, Susan Downey is known as the “Miracle That Saved Robert Downey Jr.,” And a miracle is truly the only word you can use to describe the turn that the actor took after meeting his wife. In 2008, Downey Jr. landed the role that would make him one of the highest paid men in Hollywood: playing Marvel’s Iron Man, a role that he would go on to play for the next decade.

Downey Jr. has gone on to star in many critically acclaimed movies and has earned another Oscar nomination for hisrole in Tropic Thunder, truly turning his life around. Now that he is wrapping up his time in the Marvel universe, we can’t wait to see what the actor has in store for us next.

How Old Is Robert Downey Jr? Check Out the Gift He Gave Fans On His Birthday

One of the most popular actors of the moment, Robert Downey Jr., celebrates his birthday on April 4. The star is in the spotlight right now as his new movie, Avengers: Endgame, is hitting theaters this month, and has already caused quite a frenzy amongst fans. Downey Jr. is known for being a very gracious actor, always taking the time to thank his fans and co-stars. But how old is he today? Here’s a look at his past, his age, and the sweet little gift he gave his fans.

Downey Jr. has been in the business a long time

Downey Jr. was born into a show business family, so he got his start very young. He became someone to watch in the 1980s, with roles in films such as Weird Science and Less Than Zero. Downey Jr.’s breakout role came in 1992, when he starred as Charlie Chaplin in Chaplin, earning him an Oscar nomination.

Sadly, he struggled during the late ‘90s and early ‘00s, and was arrested multiple times on drug charges. Downey Jr. made a brief comeback with a recurring role on Ally McBeal, but continued to struggle with substance abuse. In the mid-00s, he returned to the big screen with Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and Zodiac, having gotten clean.

Today, he’s best known as Iron Man

The year 2008 was a landmark one for Downey Jr.’s career. He starred in the hit comedy Tropic Thunder as well as Iron Man, the latter of which made him a household name and kickstarted what is now the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Though Tony Stark continues to be his defining role, Downey Jr. has had other successes over the past decade. He starred in the 2009 movie Sherlock Holmes and its 2011 sequel Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows. In 2020, he will take on the eponymous role in The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle.

For his birthday, Downey Jr. gave his fans a gift

Though we think of birthdays as a day in which the person celebrating receives gifts, Downey Jr. decided to mix things up. On April 4, 2019, the actor celebrated his 54th birthday in a tweet meant for his fans, including a mini Robert Downey Jr.-themed crossword puzzle in it.

Needless to say, his followers found this delightful. We won’t give away the answers here, but let’s just say it involves a little bit of his personal life and a lot more of his professional, so you should be aware of his most notable roles (as mentioned here).

His Marvel co-stars had nice things to say on his big day

In addition to his own gift for fans, Downey Jr. received well wishes from his Avengers: Endgame co-stars on social media. Captain America (Chris Evans) and the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) were among those who sent out birthday messages to their trusted leader and friend.

Happy birthday to the man, the myth, the incomparable, the indomitable, @RobertDowneyJr
You’re a true original. Thank you for carrying us these last 10 years!!!!

Even his on-screen fiance, played by Gwyneth Paltrow, got in on the action, sharing a selfie of the two on set. Paltrow’s Pepper Potts may play a pivotal role in the upcoming film.

Will he stay in the MCU after Avengers: Endgame?

The biggest question on fan’s minds is whether or not Tony Stark will be around after Endgame. Though he survived Thanos’ snap in Avengers: Infinity War, Downey Jr.’s character is among those rumored to die in the battle to reverse the Decimation. Even if he does perish, many others believe that Tony may retire as Iron Man following the events of the film. Either way, this might be the end of Downey Jr.’s time in the MCU.

**Spoilers ahead**

Avengers: Endgame is a Marvel movie that many fans can’t stop talking – or thinking- about, thanks to the heartbreaking ending and now a new picture has set us off again.

A never-seen-before behind-the-scenes photo from Tony Stark’s funeral has been shared online, and it is missing the Iron Man actor Robert Downey Jr himself and now we don’t know what to do with ourselves.

It’s nearly been a month since the film was released, so we take it Karen Gillian – who plays Nebula – felt it was safe to post a group picture of the funeral scene for Robert’s character.

Everyone is pretty much accounted for, except for Robert of course, and Zoe Saldana and Scarlett Johansson.

Scarlet’s Black Window sacrificed her life in the middle of the movie to save the world, while Zoe’s Gamora now exists in a time before she met the Guardians of The Galaxy and therefore would not have the same bond with the Avengers to attend the lakeside ceremony.

Newcomers Brie Larson, Chadwick Boseman, Letitia Wright, and Danai Gurira are in the photo, along with the rest of the Guardians, including a stuffed Rocket Raccoon prop. Sebastian Stan, Elizabeth Olsen, and Samuel L. Jackson are in the snap too.

Also, the remaining original Avengers also showed up, of course, with Mark Ruffalo, who plays Hulk, in his special motion-capture suit that they used to put the green giant on our screen in post-production.

In addition to the gathered actors, directors Joe and Anthony Russo and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige can be seen in the group shot.

This isn’t the first BTS image we have been blessed with since the movie was released in April.

Who can forget the time Chris Evans blessed us with a behind the scenes glimpse of the Marvel movie – and it was all very undramatic without the CGI.

However, Thor’s Chris Hemsworth in his dressing gown is a straight up mood, though.

The Captain America star, who has proved his reputation as the most sensible of the Chrises by dutifully sticking to the spoiler ban, has blessed fans with a clip of the Avengers squad casually chilling on the set of the huge battle that changed everything.

While the god of thunder milling about in a dressing gown as he checked his phone, Mark and Paul Rudd (Ant-Man) can be seen doing some weird hand gestures to each other.

A mood (Picture: @ChrisEvans/Twitter)

‘Video ban lifted! I guess I’m not the only one who broke the rules on this day of filming. (My camera work is annoyingly shaky),’ the 37-year-old wrote at the start of this month.

He definitely wasn’t, as Chris Pratt (Peter Quill) previously shared a clip of the same day – before the spoiler ban had lifted.

Pratt was a bit of an eager beaver as directors Joe and Anthony Russo previously revealed that they’d be lifting the spoiler ban after two weekends of the film’s release.

But we love them for the behind the scenes spoilers as the Avengers withdrawal symptoms are very real at the moment.

MOBILE, Alabama – Just when the Paragones had gotten over the social media attention they received last month, when that included a two-year-old Halloween photo of their family, out of the blue on Friday actor-director Robert Downey Jr. shared the same photo.

“Not many can pull off the Iron Man swag. This kid nailed it,” Downey wrote in his status update around noon on Friday. “Kudos to the whole fam.”

The photo of Christopher and Christy Paragone and their four sons as “The Avengers” was taken in October of 2012 on Royal Street in downtown Mobile. The Paragones hired photographer Stephanie Massey to take their annual Halloween photo.

“And just think, you were going to settle for a ‘studio backdrop’ shot,” Massey wrote on Christopher Paragone’s Facebook page when he shared Downey Jr.’s link.

Downey Jr. has nearly 21 million likes on his Facebook page. The photo of the Paragones, featuring Matthew as Iron Man, had 453,760 likes and had been shared 14,632 times in the first five hours it was on RDJ’s page.

Christopher Paragone’s niece in North Carolina was “playing around on the internet” earlier in the day when she happened to notice RDJ’s status update. “Look who I found!” she told her uncle.

Paragone, executive director of Azalea City Center for the Arts and owner/director of Drama Camp Productions in Mobile, couldn’t help feeling a bit star-struck by the experience. “He actually looked at the picture. He didn’t just share it,” he said. “It was probably the publicist who did it, but I’m going to think it was Robert Downey Jr.”

Underneath the photo, Paragone commented: “Thanks Robert Downey Jr. for sharing our family photo. Our kids love the Avengers movies and they really wanted to do this for Halloween. My awesome wife agreed and here we are!”

Though the photo has gotten a lot of mileage on social media, Paragone has plans for it to resurface again in the future. “Don’t think when our kids are grown we won’t re-do it,” he said.

“I told my wife, when you’re 60 you’re going to be back in the black leather (as The Black Widow), so prepare for that now.”

The most popular actor, who has been in the movie business for all his life ‘Robert Downey Jr’, is one of the biggest stars in the world. Downey is not only popular for his unique acting all over the world, but also famous for his unique hairstyle sense and inspiring.

Over the years, his hairstyles evolved with many different options. Robert had a natural wavy textured hair that looked perfect and, frame his face. He had grown out it to a certain length, which reaches until his ear line.

The curls especially around the sides and high partition at the sides look classy and smart. Then for a movie, he even had parted the long wavy hair to the side with bangs that were so long and, were practically falling in his eyes, even them parted to the side.

Sometimes, people want to get rid of his long curly looks. Therefore, from his long hairstyle, he went for a short haircut look. With messy bangs, the style looks great. This hairstyle makes him look younger and offers a well-defined style.

Robert, even went for short scalp buzzed hair cut and, with trimmed beard, the style looks more vibrant. The shorter sides and curly front hairstyle, is the proof that short styles can be iconic and stylish. Downey has very short sides, but in the front, he had enough long hair to be form into bangs.

Then comes, the most favorite curly ‘Sherlock Holmes’, hairstyle. He let his hair grow out and once again he shown his curls to the style. The messy style is the special feature of this hairstyle, which made him stay stylish.

From his messy curly looks, he tried slick back hairstyle that makes him look neat and clean. Some people love this slick back hairstyle of Downey and it is easy to recreate.

For the Iron Man movie, he was wearing his hair to a medium length and styled to take advantage of his natural waves. He was wearing a moustache and beard; this idea adopted a softer and more sensual look.

The messy look that, he did for the Iron Man 2 movie proves that messy looks can still be good. Today, he still maintains his medium length hair, but with different styles. The style features a taper sides and jagged cut on the top. Moreover, the crown has cut short fairly with few locks left for longer texture.

Robert looks more stylish and smart with the styling, he had made by simply running the fingers into the hair. With the shaping gel or mousse, the bit of hold, in the hair has maintained. It will make the hair stay in place, to give a funky look with minimum fuss.

He wore styles that look modern; also, he dyed his hair with either light blonde shade or darker ones. The moustache and beards left to grow to a unique style suits all his hairstyles and the way he carried himself is what matters.
