Robert Downey Jr. Quotes

American actor, film producer, and musician


Robert John Downey, Jr., is an American actor, film producer, and musician. Downey made his screen debut at the age of five when he appeared in one of his father's films, and has worked consistently in film and television ever since. During the 1980s, he had roles in a series of coming of age films associated with the Brat Pack. Less Than Zero (1987) is particularly notable, not only because it was the first time Downey's acting would be acknowledged by critics, but also because the role pushed Downey's already existing drug habit one step further. After Zero, Downey started landing roles in bigger films such as Air America (1990) and Soapdish (1991). These higher-profile roles eventually led to his being cast as Charlie Chaplin in the 1992 film Chaplin, for which he gained an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor.

 The most realistic is the Iron Man stuff because it’s a piece of technology you can do all kinds of stuff with. It’s the one people are most likely working towards. I attempt to live in reality as often as possible. Fantasy is fun but then you wake up.
