Robert John Downey Jr. was born on April 4, 1965 in Manhattan, New York as the youngest member of the family. He has an older sister, Allyson. His father, Robert Downey, Sr. (born Robert Elias, but adopted his stepfather’s name) is an actor, writer, cinematographer, producer and underground filmmaker. His mother is actress Elsie Ford. His father is half Russian-Jewish, half Irish Catholic, while his mother has Scottish, German and Swiss ancestry. The family lived in Greenwich Village.

Unfortunately, he did not have a cloudless childhood. His father was a drug addict and introduced his son to this world as a child. At the age of six, he gave her marijuana, which he now regrets very much. ( “When my father and I used to do drugs together, it was as if he was trying to express his love to me in the only way he knew,” the actor said.)

At the age of 5, he appeared for the first time in his father’s absurd comedy film Pound (1970), where he played a sick puppy, then at the age of 7 he appeared in the surrealist Greaser’s Palace ( 1972). At the age of 10, she lived in England for a while and studied classical ballet, and by the time she was a teenager, she completed a course at the Stagedoor Manor Performing Arts Training Center in New York. In 1978, after his parent’s divorce, he moved to California with his father. After dropping out of Santa Monica High School in 1982, he decided to move back to New York to focus full-time on his acting career. After moving to Hollywood, she was Kiefer Sutherland’s roommate for three years.



Robert initially played in theaters. He starred in Norman Lear’s short-lived off-Broadway musical American Passion, which debuted at the Joyce Theater in 1983. In 1985, aged just 20, he joined a weekly television comedy show, Saturday Night Live (SNL for short), but was fired in 1986 due to low budgets. In 1985, Tuff Turf brought him a breakthrough, in which he played James Spader’s partner. She then appeared in two John Hughes films, Weird Science (1985) and Pretty in Pink ( 1986 ).

In 1987, he starred alongside Molly Ringwald in The Pick-up Artist in the movie. In the same year, he played a drug-addicted rich boy in the film adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis’ book in Less Than Zero. The role saw Robert increasingly employed in bigger-budget films such as Chances Are (1989)Air America (1990), and Soapdish (1991).

In 1992, he got the role of Charlie Chaplin in the film Chaplin. For the sake of the film, he learned to play the violin, play tennis with his left hand, and a personal trainer helped him master Chaplin’s characteristic posture. The film was nominated for Best Actor at the 65th Academy Awards but did not win. This was followed by films such as Heart and Souls (1993), Only You (1994), Natural Born Killers (1994), Restoration (1995), Richard III (1995) and The Last Party  (1993), a documentary, which he wrote.

From 1996 to 2001, there were changes in his career. He was arrested more and more often for drug possession and use. He was sentenced to rehab several times, but always relapsed. In April 1996, he was arrested for possession of heroin, cocaine, possession of a Magnum-type weapon and speeding. He was given a three-year probationary period and must take mandatory drug tests.

In 1997, he failed a court drug test and was sentenced to four months in the Los Angeles County Jail. In 1999, he was arrested again for a failed drug test. Despite the fact that his lawyer was the well-known John Stewart Holden, Robert was sentenced to three years in prison at Corcoran State Prison in California and referred to the California Substance Abuse Treatment The Devil, but was fired for repeatedly missing rehearsals. He was released early on $5,000 bail.


A week after his release, he got a role in the series Ally McBeal, where he played the new love interest of the title character Calista Flockhart. For his excellent performance in the series, he was nominated in the Emmy Awards – Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series category and was also nominated for the Golden Globe in the Best Supporting Actor in a Mini-series or Television Film category, which he won. In the series, he was able to show his talent not only as an actor but also as a singer. She sang a duet with Sting and also wrote a song for Vonda Shepard’s album Ally McBeal: For Once in My Life.


Before the end of the first season of Ally McBeal, he was arrested again on charges of possession of cocaine and valium based on an anonymous tip. Despite the fact that he was convicted, he could not face the announced prison sentence, as he was bound by his contract with the series.

In April 2001, the Los Angeles police arrested him again on suspicion of being under the influence. Series producer David E. Kelley and the other executives decided to write her out of the series despite reviving her character. After all this, Robert begged to be sent to drug rehab instead of prison. A year earlier, he entered California’s Proposition 36 facility and received three years of probation to overcome his addiction.


After five years of continuous substance abuse, arrests, rehabs and relapses, he was ready to make a comeback. In August 2001, she lip-synched in Elton John’s ‘I Want Love’ video directed by Sam Taylor-Wood. Then Mel Gibson, with whom he starred in the film Air America and became a close friend of the actor, offered him the lead role in the 2003 film  The  Singing Detective. Gibson paved his way to success as a gambler.

In his entire career, Robert has never appeared in ‘blockbuster’ films, but that changed in the summer of 2008, when he donned the Iron Man costume and became instantly famous. After Iron Man, he starred in Ben Stiller’s 2008 summer film Tropic Thunder, where he played Kirk Lazarus. This role earned him another nomination for Best Supporting Actor at the 80th Academy Awards.

In 2009, he played alongside Jamie Foxx in the film The Soloist, then played the title character in Guy Ritchie’s film Sherlock Holmes alongside Jude Law. The film became the 8th highest-grossing film of 2009. Thanks to the role, the 2010 GAt Olden Globe Awards, he was also awarded Best Actor in a Motion Picture Musical or Comedy from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. After the 2008 Iron Man movie became a huge success, Jon Favreau and Robert agreed that two more Iron Man and a superhero movie called The Avengers would be made, based on a connecting cameo scene from the 2008 movie The Incredible Hulk. at the end of the movie.
