The Astonishing World Of Robert Downey Jr

Robert Downey Jr is walking proof that you CAN turn your life around. He went from hitchhiking in his pajamas in Marina Del Rey after escapingfrom rehab in the 90’s, to being the Highest Paid Actor in Hollywood for two years in a row according to Forbes magazine. From 1996 to 2002, Downey was arrested and rehabbed numerous times for drug offenses, and also spent a year in prison. So it’s pretty amazing that he earned 75 million dollars between June 2013, and June 2014, thanks to his Iron Manand Avengers movies. It helps that he’s an extremely likeable guy. WhenJimmy Kimmel heard about the Forbes report, he remarked ”He’s come a long way – I remember when he was just the highest actor in Hollywood.”
