Early life

When Robert Downey, Jr. was born in 1965, his father had already been an actor for many years and stuck around to make sure that his son became one too – even though he didn’t always follow suit (or at least try hard). The younger Mr. Doyley started with roles on stage before moving onto TV commercials when Valley Girls hit the big time. He also performed alongside Dad back home series like “Law & Order,”.


Downey made several roles in theatre before landing the job as part of “Saturday Night Live”s new, younger cast hired during season 35. He paired up with Joan Cusack and Anthony Michael Hall, among others, to make this show more enjoyable than ever! The 1985-1986 season didn’t do well, so all these talented actors were fired except for one who became famous -Drew Barrymore

In 1987 when he played Julian Wells, an addict to drugs who lives off his wealthy mother’s money while she pursues her Ph.D. program at Columbia University–we could tell right away there would be no happy ending for him because even though their characters have different personalities, they both end up doing something terrible towards each other.

He starred in 1989’s “Chances Are” opposite Cybill Shepherd and 1990’s Air America with Mel Gibson and Sally Field. In 1992 Jodie Foster was nominated for the best actor Oscar for playing Charlie Chaplin.

Drug Issues

Downey’s career hit a rough patch when his drug use got out of control. He was arrested for possession multiple times and rehabbed numerous times, but always relapsed after release from prison or hospitalization due to addiction treatments like hepatitis C infection (which can be passed through shared needles). In April 1996, Downey speed-tested highs by cops near Sunset Boulevard; they found heroin in addition to Costume drama “Less Than Zero” co-star Andrew McCarthy.

He spent nearly a year in prison for missing one drug test. The courts are strict on these things, so check with an attorney before your next custody hearing.

After being released from prison, actor Robert Downey Jr. joined the cast of “Ally McBeal.” He won a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor in 1999 when he played an agent who becomes involved with her daughter’s life after she graduated college; however, his career took off, even more, when they were filming a series of TV films during 2000-2001 thanks to heavy drug use and possession charges which led him getting fired from show business altogether until now.

Career Comeback

When drug rehab failed to eliminate his addiction, Tony Downey hit rock bottom and was unhirable. But Mel Gibson saw potential in the actor when they were friends from Air America days; without him, we may never have seen second-half success for this talented man.

In order words: It isn’t always easy being an alcoholic or addict because people will often try anything once with the hope it’ll work – even if past experiences show otherwise- but sometimes these attempts lead only deeper into debauchery until someone like mg rejuvenates your spirits again by showing how much They care.

He was critically praised for his performance in “Iron Man.” He also appeared as Tony Stark in the two sequels, 2008’s The Incredible Hulk and 2012’s Avengers Assemble. Downey will be reprising this role once again when he appears alongside Robert Downy Jr., Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America), Mark Ruffalo( Bruce Banner /Hulk), and Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton AKA Hawkeye).

In addition to being an actor whose accomplishments are numerous enough to list here but not exhaustive because there have been so many good movies with him featured heavily over time, Robert Downey Jr. is also a producer, director, and screenwriter.

Personal life

Downey was married four times and had one son with his first wife, Indio, from a relationship with Falconer.

After a whirlwind 42-day courtship, Downey’s marriage ended in 2001 due to many trips back into rehab, where he emerged as a drug addict, which led them to be far apart for much time while also neglecting their child during this period until they eventually divorced after four years together (2004).

Mel Gibson’s life changed course after he met Susan Levin. The two first crossed paths on the set of Gothika in 2003, where she worked as an executive producer, and he was filming his role as factory worker Don Logan. Still, it wasn’t until later that night when she turned down requests for dates from this Hollywood leading man who seemed entirely caught up with himself, at least until they started dating anyway! They married just three years ago – these days, two children are living happily at home: son Exton (born 2010)and daughter Avri(2014).
