RDJ Teases Return For 'Iron Man 4'

Posted by Thora | 02/10/2014 | Films, Videos | 0 Comment(s)
Marvel’s upcoming movie slate going into 2020 still has a lot of empty spaces with a lot people pointing the finger at the billionaire, playboy philanthropist to set out on a fourth adventure. With Iron Man 3 taking a whopping $1.2 billion at the box office in 2013, it’s pretty clear why Marvel would be keen for Iron Man 4.

However, Robert Downey Jr.’s contract to play Tony Stark and Iron Man only sets up him up for next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron and the follow up, Avengers 3, which has put a spanner in the works the possibility of a fourth Iron Man movie.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Downey Jr. has cryptically spoken out about the chances of another Iron Man film saying, “I’m sure we’ll ride that thing. You’ve got to surf that all the way into shore.

“I think I was at the forefront of something that was coming into being, and I think it has carried me as much as I have informed it,” he continues. “That’s the healthy way to look at it. It’s so easy to become inflated by the successes, but what they really are are long, strong trends. It’s just another wave.”

The Downeys Reveal Perfectly Symbiotic Marriage

Posted by Thora | 01/10/2014 | Articles, Interviews | 0 Comment(s) | Full Story
In a rare joint interview, the couple give THR a peek into their relationship ("He was interesting but weird," she recalls of their first encounter) and open up about how she helped orchestrate his recovery, his career comeback and their first joint project, 'The Judge' (after their son and upcoming daughter, of course): "She is the font of all good things," he says.


The right logo says a lot about a company. MGM wouldn't be MGM without its lion. Amblin is defined by E.T. in a bike basket. And where would Pixar be without its hopping desk lamp? Then there's the logo for Team Downey, the production house that Robert Downey Jr. and his wife, Susan, opened a little more than four years ago. It's in the shape of a yellow street sign, with a cutely drawn stick-figure mental patient in a straitjacket being chased by a stick-figure nurse with a butterfly net.

Which tells you pretty much everything you need to know about Mr. and Mrs. Downey, the most "perfectly symbiotic" marriage in Hollywood (at least according to Sherlock Holmes director Guy Ritchie).

"I'm turning off the AC," announces Susan, 40, getting up from her chair in the spacious "living area" of Team Downey's three-story, pop art-filled headquarters on Venice's Abbot Kinney Boulevard. "It's freezing in here!"

Robert Downey Jr: To The Edge And Back

Posted by Thora | 01/10/2014 | Articles, Interviews | 0 Comment(s) | Full Story
Robert Downey Jr is the boy who had everything, lost it and found it all over again, who went from Oscar-nominated actor to junkie jailbird to king of the box office. Over dinner at his home in Malibu, he tells his extraordinary story to Esquire.


When you arrive at Robert Downey Jr’s house for dinner, a security guard tells you to park alongside “that fleet of covered cars”, and an assistant escorts you to the house. So far, so Malibu. You say the traffic wasn’t terrible. She says, “Ugh, the 405” and, “Oh, if you could just remove your shoes, I’ll take you in.” And you think – we’re here already? This is the house?

It’s a beautiful parcel, no doubt: a bunch of green acres that dips gently towards the sea with some studio apartments at one end that were once groomsmen’s quarters (the previous owner rescued horses). But the house itself is remarkably unremarkable. A cozy, 3,000sq ft home that has no aspirations to be in magazines; a place of cats and comfort, of children and toys, and funny, funky art, much of it by the French street artist Dran. If it weren’t for all the staff – there’s a chef pottering away in the kitchen – it’d be easy to forget that a movie star lived here. A huge movie star.

Not that I was expecting some McMansion full of fountains and topiary. But some kind of starchitect deal maybe? A place with a bit of snap and flash about it, to match his fees, his Star Ranking, his famous fast-talking swagger. After all, in Malibu, the rich build dream homes as a rite of passage. It’s a way of announcing their arrival, if only to themselves. And there’s no disputing Downey Jr’s arrival. In roughly a decade-and-a-half, he has gone from junkie also-ran and Inmate P50522 to the highest-earning actor in Hollywood for two years running. Last year alone, he clocked up $75m, thanks mostly to Iron Man 3, which made $1.2bn worldwide. So, he’s not neighbours anymore with “Figueroa Slim”, “Sugar Bear” and his other “cellies”. Now he’s neighbours with Rick Rubin and Beck and Jackie Chan, or so he’s heard. And didn’t Tony Stark live in Malibu, too?

RDJ Pens Moving Tribute to His Late Mother

Posted by Thora | 27/09/2014 | News, Articles | 0 Comment(s)

Robert Downey Jr. paid tribute to his mother Elsie in a stirring tribute chronicling her struggle to find success as an actor, battles with addiction, and how she ultimately inspired him to get sober. She died Sept. 22 at 80.

In a Facebook post Friday, Downey praised the work she and his father, director Robert Downey Sr., did together, including 1975's Two Tons of Turquoise to Taos Tonight, which saw her play 17 characters. She often co-wrote with her then-husband and appeared in his films.

"By the mid '70s, the downside of drug culture caught up with many artists. She was an alcoholic," Downey wrote. "As the marriage suffered, she continued to work, but not for long. A recurring role on Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman' ('76-'77) was her last paying job...not that she cared, she'd have done it for free."

She eventually got clean and later inspired Downey to do the same.

"While I strived to have the kind of success that eluded her, my own addiction repeatedly forbade it," Downey wrote. "In the summer of 2004, I was in bad shape. She called me out of the blue, and I admitted everything. I don't remember what she said, but I haven't drank or used since."

Downey went on to talk about the final years of his mother's life, when she moved to Los Angeles to be with him and his family, but was plagued by health problems.

"Many fond memories of her in the last few years...holidays, kid-stuff, her strutting around with a walking stick. I knew it was difficult, and understood as the visits got shorter."

Downey told people to cherish their mothers, flaws and all.

"If anyone out there has a mother, and she's not perfect, please call her and say you love her anyway," he wrote.

Britannia Awards to Honor Robert Downey Jr.

Posted by Thora | 18/09/2014 | News | 0 Comment(s)
The Judge's lead actor Robert Downey, Jr., Foxcatcher's supporting actor Mark Ruffalo, Mr. Turner's writer-director Mike Leigh and two beloved British actresses of different generations, Dame Judi Dench and Emma Watson, will be this year's honorees at BAFTA Los Angeles' 23rd annual Britannia Awards on Oct. 30 at the Beverly Hilton, the organization announced Thursday.

The gala dinner and ceremony, which raises funds for BAFTA-LA's education, preservation and philanthropic efforts, is an early and high-profile stop on the annual awards circuit that fetes Brits and non-Brits alike "who have dedicated their careers to advancing the art forms of the moving image in the US, UK and beyond."

Downey will receive the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award for Excellence in Film, which is presented to "a unique individual, upon whose work is stamped the indelible mark of authorship and commitment, and who has lifted the craft to new heights." Prior recipients include Warren Beatty, Jeff Bridges, Tom Cruise, Daniel Day-Lewis, Robert De Niro, Clint Eastwood, Tom Hanks, George Lucas, Sean Penn, Steven Spielberg, Denzel Washington and, last year, George Clooney.
