Over the past few years, Robert Downey Jr. actor has put his life back together. He married for the second time in 2005 and E! Online is reporting that he and his wife, Susan Levin, are expecting their first child together. After his stint in rehab, he had some acting roles in films like Gothika and Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang. The 46-year-old actor and his wife met on the set of “Gothika” in 2003, and married in 2005.
Downey also has a 17-year-old son, Indio, from his previous marriage with actress Deborah Falconer. Downey’s breakthrough performance was that of a cocaine addict in the 1987 film “Less Than Zero,” which co-starred Andrew McCarthy (“Pretty in Pink,” “St. Elmo’s Fire”).
Unfortunately, Downey developed addictions to drugs and alcohol as he entered his early 20s. That same year, he starred in comedy film “Tropic Thunder,” in which he was nominated for his second Academy Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role.
He is currently reprising his Iron Man role for the 2012 film, “The Avengers.”
Actor Robert Downey Jr. is going to be a daddy again. Unlike other actors who, at the age of 46 have already parented a football team, actor Robert Downey Jr. was not very concentrated on this aspect of his life. Taking into consideration Robert Downey Jr. past, which included a battle with drug and alcohol abuse, it is no wonder that family life came second…or third. Robert, 46, met Susan (then Levin) Downey, 37, in 2003, on the set of Gothika. After turning his romantic advances down two times, Susan started dating him secretly and in on August 2005 they wedded in New York. Robert credits his wife for his ability to fight his addictions.
