  • Story of Robert Downey
  • His struggles
  • Real life Avenger

Do I want to be a hero to my son? No. I would like to be a very real human being. That’s hard enough.”

These are simple words yet hold the most profound meaning itself. These were the lines said by our own Robert Downey Junior. Because he knows what it takes to be a real human. And being a sane one is not easy. The complications are not involved when we get ourselves in something wrong but getting out of the mess created, is a process not facile.

Similar is the story of Robert Downey Junior. Robert's parents got split up when he was around five. His father got him into drugs and allowed him to take marijuana in an attempt to bond over with him. Drugs became an emotional attachment to both. It was in his early years only that is RDJ stepped into the acting world. The struggle there of Robert is yet another story in itself. As we know the early project of him didn't do so well. It was then, he perceived that his life needed some help.

Robert Downey got himself in Rehab to clear out all the filthiness persisting in his life. He came out with a clean man and yet did good in his reel and real life. He gave terrific performances. But was not able to keep himself off the track of drugs for long. This time things compounded. RDJ was proven guilty in a drug test and was put behind the bars several times for minor offenses. The earlier drug addiction had got him divorced from his first wife. This was the time when he met his second wife who reprimanded him for living such a miserable life. It was high time for him to pick up the pace and he decided to give up drugs forever. He again got registered himself in Rehab and it was never looking back. 

The rest is history as then we got our Iron Man. Not on just the screen, RDJ has tried his level best to be a real-life Avenger. RDJ Now works for the recovery of drug addicts and also spends time with children who are sick and do all the charitable work. He once said that “I used to be so convinced that happiness was the goal, yet all those years I was chasing after it I was unhappy in the pursuit. Maybe the goal really should be a life that values honor, duty, good work, friends and family" and this is in no way been proven wrong.
