Susan gave birth to Avri’s older brother Exton Elias in February 2012 and the family of four has since Avri’s birth been leading a seemingly happy life together.

Who is Robert Downey Jr.?

Robert John Downey Jr. was born in New York City, USA on 4 April 1965 – his zodiac sign is Aries and he holds American nationality.

He might be known best for his portrayal of Iron Man (Tony Stark) in 10 movies created by Marvel Cinematic Universe – he is also known for having been one of the highest-paid actors from 2013 to 2015, according to the American business magazine “Forbes”.

Robert was raised alongside his older sister in Greenwich Village, New York City, by their father Robert Downey Sr. who was an actor and a moviemaker, and their mother Elsie Ann who was an actress. Robert Jr.’s father was a drug addict, who allowed his son to smoke marijuana when he was only six years old – this led Robert to also start drinking and smoking weed nearly every night.

He was five when he launched his acting career, mostly making cameo appearances in his father’s movies, then after turning 10, Robert was sent to England to study classical ballet.

Upon returning to New York, he studied at Stagedoor Manor Performing Arts Training Center, and at the age of 13 when his parents divorced, he moved in with his father in California, and enrolled at Santa Monica High School, from which he dropped out when he was 17, and moved to New York to pursue a career as an actor.

The first two roles that helped him gain recognition were in the 1985 drama movie “Tuff Turf”, and the teen science fiction comedy movie “Weird Science” in the same year He portrayed his first lead character in the 1987 romantic comedy movie “The Pick-up Artist”, and the following years appeared in numerous movies, including “Chances Are”, “Air America” and “Soapdish”, before playing Charlie Chaplin in the 1992 biographical comedy film “Chaplin”, which won him a nomination for an Academy Award for Best Actor, but he lost-out to Al Pacino’s portrayal of Lieutenant Colonel Frank Slade in the evergreen drama film “Scent of a Woman”.

In the late ‘90s, Robert’s drug problems surfaced and he was arrested on multiple occasions for possession of marijuana, heroin and cocaine – he joined several rehab programs, but none really helped. He was put on a three-year probation in 1996, then after failing to take a court-ordered drug test in 1997, Robert was sent to jail for half a year – he failed to take another test in 1999, and was sentenced to three years in prison, but was released after having served one year, and only seven days later started playing a supporting character in the legal comedy series “Ally McBeal” – for his performance, Robert won a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor in a mini-series or television film, and was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.

Robert was then arrested again, and fired from “Ally McBeal” when he received three years on probation, and had to enter a drug rehab program.

In 2001, Robert finally decided he was done with drugs, and in 2003 starred in the musical crime comedy movie “The Singing Detective”, which was only made possible because the famous actor and Robert’s friend Mel Gibson paid for Robert’s insurance bond. He went on to appear in many movies, such as “Good Night”, “A Scanner Darkly” and “The Shaggy Dog”, and on 23 November 2004, to everyone’s surprise, Robert launched his singing career with the release of his first and only album “The Futurist”.

He became famous worldwide after his portrayal of Tony Stark in the 2008 superhero film “Iron Man”, which grossed around $585 million worldwide, then starred alongside Ben Stiller in the action comedy movie “Tropic Thunder”. Some of the following movies he appeared in were “The Soloist”, “Sherlock Holmes” and “Iron Man 2”, while two of his most recent and notable roles were in the 2018 and 2019 superhero movies “Avengers: Infinity War”, and “Avengers: Endgame”, respectively.
