Robert Downey Jr. Made 8 Cents an Hour?!
Robert Downey Jr., is that you?
just before Halloween, the actor shared an Instagram video of his and wife Susan Downey‘s kids Exton, 10, and Avri, 8, shaving his head upon his request for his upcoming role in the HBO limited series The Sympathizer. And this weekend, RBJ stepped out to showcase his new look upon the masses.
Sporting his signature tinted glasses, the actor debuted his shaved look on the red carpet for the first time at premiere of Netflix’s Sr., a documentary about his father, independent filmmaker Robert Downey Sr., at 2022 AFI Fest in Hollywood Nov. 4. He was accompanied by his wife as well as his friend Jon Favreau, who directed him in the Iron Man films.
“He was a groundbreaking filmmaker. As well as my dad. It’s not uncomplicated,” Robert said about his father on Instagram. “Sr. is a documentary that tells the story of Robert Downey’s maverick rise in NYC, his crash, burn and redemption in Hollywood and our relationship in the aftermath. Directed by Chris Smith. Only on Netflix, December 2nd.”
