Hello and welcome to the new version of Robert Downey Jr.
After over a year we had the last layout (which I still love to pieces!) I thought it was time to change, with something more colorful and intense and great and still made by the wonderful Nicole at nowhereland9DESIGN
I’m faithful to her headers which I code into the full layout. This layout is as well mobile-friendly now so you can browse from any of your devices and it’ll be responsive to it.
I hope you love it as much as I do.
It’s the spring of 2001, and Robert Downey Jr.has just been fired from Ally McBeal. He’s also checked himself into (yet another) emergency rehab session after his second consecutive arrest in Southern California.
Then, cut to August, 2015 and he’s the world’s highest-paid actor, with an IMDB page that promises years upon of further franchises and their associated high paychecks. He also happens to be happily married, with two toddlers at home. (Just recently, he was ousted from Hollywood’s top salary spot by Dwayne Johnson—blame all the Fast and the Furious money—but that’s all just extraneous details at this point.)
So how exactly does this happen? How does a guy go from radioactive to the top of the industry? It’s a story worth revisiting time and time again.
It all started in the mid-90’s—at least for today’s purposes. Downey was one of the most wanted men in the business, whether you were looking to cast a movie or to build a guest list for a party. He was fresh off an Oscar nomination for his role in Chaplin, he had just completed a quickie wedding to singer Deborah Falconer(after having relationships with the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker, among others), and he was, shall we say, celebrating life a bit too much.

I finally got a chance to put my hands on bluray edition of Chef, Jon Favreau’s movie from 2015 in which Robert plays Martin, Inez’s (Sofia Vergara) ex-husband who helps Carl (Jon Favreau) to launch his food truck activity. Take a look at them in the gallery.

In case you missed the big news out of the world of Marvel Comics this week, Tony Stark will no longer be the face behind the metallic face of Iron Man. This step down comes as part of Marvel’s “Civil War II” storyline, a game-changer as far as the status quo of the current Marvel Universe in the comics goes. Writer Brian Michael Bendis is one of the architects of this arc, which occurs as part of the Marvel NOW! relaunch that includes Michael Bendis’ new series, “Invincible Iron Man.” It’s in this series that Stark will have given up the suit while Riri Williams – a 15-year-old Black woman and genius MIT student – takes over.
While Robert Downey Jr. has come to represent the living embodiment of Tony Stark for many comic and movie fans alike, this paradigm shift in the world of comics may one day (likely far, far down the line) have repercussions on the cinematic universe, too. So despite the fact that the reveal of Williams as the new “Invincible Iron Man” has caused divisive reactions, RDJ is fully embracing the change.
Here’s Downey Jr.’s tweet:
