A couple days before, she’d said, “Oh, my right shoulder kinda hurts,” and so I’d kind of loosened it up and did some pressure points. So when I got the tattoo, I said, “Oh my left shoulder really hurts,” and she said, “Wouldn’t it be funny if you tear off your shirt and you’ve got my name emblazoned on your shoulder.”

Robert Downey Jr., on how he didn’t tell his then-fiancée Susan Levin he had gotten ‘SUZIE Q’ tattooed on his arm.

Happy 10th Anniversary, Robert and Susan!

Robert Downey Jr. & Susan Downey

“Four of us would work out together after the shoot, and one day, when we were on the treadmills, Robert goes, ‘Levin, you wanna go to dinner?’ and I said, 'Eh, I’ll grab something to eat,’ so we agreed to go change and meet in the lobby. And as he walked down the stairs toward me, I remember looking up at him and suddenly thinking, He’s really cute.”

“He’s incredibly grounded, incredibly normal. And such a nice guy. He makes me laugh like no one can.”

“Whatever I was hungry for when I met Susan, I couldn’t have known how much more satisfying what I got would be.”

“She’s the real deal. I just feel like she’s my best friend and we really get along well.”

“I don’t joke when I say she is my better half. She truly is. I cannot believe what a fantastic life I have today… I can’t ever imagine a life before her. I’ve certainly come to believe that Mrs. Downey and I together are definitely better than me alone or me and anybody else.”
