Robert Downey Jr. (with cameo appearances of Susan and Exton) sending a video message to Robert Rusler’s son, Charlie, who broke his leg.

He calls himself “Uncle Bob”.

Venus In Aries
Men and Women with venus in Aries tend to be cheerful and funny with quick, frequent infatuations for others. Usually if a person with this venus is interested in you, you will know about it. They are turned off by relationships that are too mature or stuffy. Slight shyness is another trait depending on the position of Venus.

Venus In Aries Men: You want a challenging, independent partner who can maintain your interest because you often get bored easily. Interest fades if they give in too easily. People who are energetic, genuinely fun and have a good sense of humour catch your eye.

Venus In Aries Women: Bold and brisk, you have a thirst for thrills and excitement. You come across as very energetic to others. A natural flirt. You like to be the dominant character and physical attraction is somewhat important to your, how can I put it, “love at first sight” dating style.

Famous Venus In Aries: Marilyn Monroe, George Clooney, Albert Einstein, Lady Gaga, Shakira, Jennifer Aniston, Rihanna, Elizabeth Taylor, Mariah Carey, Jack Nicholson, Audrey Hepburn, Bob Marley, Robert Downey Jr., Monica Cruz, Keira Knightley, Chris Martin, Victoria Justice, Christina Ricci, Pharrell Williams, Eddie Murphy, Leona Lewis, Morgan Freeman, Lily Allen, Miranda Cosgrove, Emily Blunt.

For whatever reason, I feel like I should tell you that RDJ’s friends apparently call him Bob, if that one interview with Johnny Depp is anything to go by. I mean, if you didn’t know that already.

I’d heard that! And I prepared a justification for this moment. :D Thank you for giving me an opportunity to use it, to wit:

Chris Evans, bless his heart, he’s a little awkward. And I figure that he really just isn’t comfortable calling the Robert Downey Junior "Bob”. Especially since Mark calls him Robert, but that’s just Mark being charmingly formal.

Someday Chris will be charmingly formal like Mark. Or he’ll be crazy like Robert. Either way, he has good role models. 

(Awkward Chris Evans is my favourite, I won’t lie.)


Bob Downey Jr. doing a Facebook livestream inside his car while in traffic, on his own (!!), literally reading the comments that he was getting and making random comments is the cutest thing.

  • LOL, he puts on his seatbelt because a fan told him to.
  • He said he was going to sign off and stayed on for another five minutes.
  • His glasses are from a random pharmacy
  • Turns down a marriage proposal because he’s already married.
  • In response to a “Team Cap!” comment, he agrees + says “all the way!”
  • Shout-out to registered nurses.
  • He briefly shows the inside of the car he’s in.
  • Like he was literally reading them as they came in.

“Marvel has been so smart about casting unexpected people for these roles. Look at what Robert Downey brought to Iron Man. A real, dry sense of humor and a complexity to his hero balance … I think that the way these Marvel heroes are written, the female superheroes included, do have complexity and flaws. But I think when they are translated into film, the women can become these ultimate goddesses of perfection and I would love to create a female Marvel character who is just as unexpected and complex as some of the male characters as Iron Man.”

The highlights of RDJ’s acceptance/introduction speech tonight–

  • His lighthearted reference to his drug past: “I went in a bit of a NASA program of my own for a while.”
  • Sharing his award with Susan.
  • His bright orange, tinted reading glasses: “I want to welcome myself into middle age and put on these reading glasses.”
  • He’s a Peanuts fanboy: “I know all of their names. I know every episode.”
