Some Notable Quotes By Robert Downey Jr.

  • If you’re doing a drama that has some comedic elements you can’t forget that it’s primarily a very serious film that has some light relief.
  • In movies, people seem to be more emotional than they would ever be if that situation was actually happening to them.
  • All I want, and I think all any parent with a semblance of moral psychology wants, is for my kid to have his own experience, uninhibited.
  • I walk by studio heads and they actually look and put their hand out now, like maybe I should be on their radar.
  • I’m very good at deconstructing. I’m a very good troubleshooter for why something is unlikely to work. And most everything is unlikely to work.
