Favorite Quotes from Robert Downey Jr.

“I think part of my destiny has to be realizing that I’m not the poster boy for drug abuse. I’m just this guy who has a really strong sense of wanting home and wanting foundation and having not had it, I now choose to create it.” – Robert Downey Jr.

“I don’t drink these days. I’m allergic to alcohol and narcotics. I break out in handcuffs.” – Robert Downey Jr.

“I took my drugs after work and on the weekends. Maybe I’d turn up hungover on the set, but no more so than the stuntman. …I was playing this junkie-faggot guy, and, for me, the role was like the ghost of Christmas future. The character was an exaggeration of myself. Then things changed, and, in some ways, I became an exaggeration of the character. That lasted far longer than it needed to last.” – Robert Downey Jr.
