Robert Downey Jr was born on 4 April 1965, in New York City USA, of Lithuanian-Jewish, Irish and Hungarian (father), and Scottish, German and Swiss (mother) descent. A screenwriter, singer, producer and actor, Robert is perhaps best known for his role of Charlie Chaplin in “Chaplin” (1992), which earned him a nomination for an Oscar. Downey became an especially noted actor in 2008 when he appeared as Tony Stark in “Iron Man”, a very successful movie which increased Robert Downey Jr’s net worth significantly.

He has reputedly earned more than $55 million in the last four years, including for roles playing Tony Stark ($10,000,000), Sherlock Holmes ($15,000,000) and in “Due Date” ($12,000,000).

Subsequently, and perhaps surprisngly, Robert Downey Jr. then had roles in less than outstanding films, however, the problem was his drug addiction: between 1996 and 2001 Downey was arrested several times for drug and alcohol abuse.

Downey Jr. finally left prison in 2001, and eventually came into prominence with “Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang” (2005) and “Fur: An Imaginary Portrait of Diane Arbus” (2006). He also appeared in the animated film “A Scanner Darkly” (2006), and the Ben Stiller comedy “Tropic Thunder” (2008).
