Robert during family holiday in St. Barts

His last film Iron Man 3 has been named as the highest grossing film of 2013, taking a whopping £738 million at the global box office. But despite his huge success Robert Downey Jr is a down to earth family man, who enjoys nothing more than spending time with his youngest son Exton and wife Susan.

The 48-year-old was spotted frolicking in the sea and sand with his little one on Sunday during their winter break in St Barts. Looking in great shape the Tropic Thunder actor wore a pair of navy floral board shorts and a necklace to complete his surfer dude look.

Making sure Exton Elias, who was born in February of 2012, didn’t get burnt he was dressed in a blue rash vest and shorts. Robert was seen helping his son build a sandcastle – going back and forth to the water to fill up the buckets for him. After awhile Robert slipped on a bright orange hat and T-shirt, so he too didn’t get burnt, while his wife kept covered up in a pretty paisley summer dress.

Robert takes Susan out on theatre date night

They've already been together for a decade but actor Robert Downey Jr and his wife Susan Downey looked like they were still in the honeymoon period as they stepped out together on Friday night.

The pair held hands and smiled as they left the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles where they went to new show, I'll Eat You Last: A Chat with Sue Mengers. Bette Midler has the lead role in the Broadway production which recently arrived in Los Angeles and runs until December 22.

Mother-of-one Susan, 39, looked gorgeous in a blue silk floral blouse which she wore with skinny black trousers, black open toe wedge heels and a cropped black leather jacket. She wore her hair up and smiled as she held hands with 48-year-old Robert who was dressed all in black.

Robert Downey: A futurist knows

The actor and producer talks to Fortune about the big ideas that have impacted his views on technology and entertainment.

FORTUNE -- Robert Downey Jr. has become one of the most powerful players in Hollywood. But the 48-year-old actor admits he's not much of a networker. "I think about people, and I have a conversation with them in my head," he says. "But I tend to not reach out." In an interview about his career and the future of the movie industry, the Iron Man and Sherlock Holmes actor tells Fortune about the real-life discussions (Elon Musk!) that have influenced his thinking about technology, business, and entertainment. Edited portions of the interview will appear in the January 13 issue of Fortune; a lengthier excerpt of the Q&A follows.

Q. This isn't the first time your image has been on the cover of a business magazine. Tony Stark's face has graced the cover of a few news titles.
A. Yes! I wanted to close the circle.

Elon Musk has been compared to Tony Stark, and parts of Iron Man 2 were filmed at a SpaceX facility. Did you ever meet?
The genesis of that goes back to preproduction for Iron Man I, when SpaceX was in a smaller facility and Elon Musk was not a household name. As part of my research, I wanted to interview two people: John Underkoffler [the chief scientist at computer interface company Oblong] and Elon. I thought it was really interesting that he literally had decided to become a rocket scientist. And although the similarities kind of end with a certain -- what would you say? -- just an amazing self-agency, you know, that I think Elon really embodies. I was looking to Under­koffler for straight technology [advice]. You remember in Minor­ity Report, the character is wearing those gloves and moving the screens around? He and his company built that into a reality, so I was taking some cues from him: If Tony had designed his own software and his own programs and the machinery to operate them, what sort of language would he design to be able to ma­nipulate his environment? And over the course of all these mov­ies, that's been as much a part of Tony's character as anything else.
The spirit of Elon was really inspiring to me because Tony goes from doing one thing so well and so successfully, and goes to do something that's a lot more risky and much more far reaching.
And then in the second Iron Man, Tony Stark has a conversation with Elon Musk about doing a project together. I think it's electric jets if I'm not mistaken.
