How Did Robert Downey Jr. Become the Richest Actor?

Best known for his work in the
“Iron Man” trilogy and accompanying “Avengers” films, Robert Downey Jr. turns
57 on April 4 and shows no signs of slowing down. He continues to command blockbuster
salaries for his cinematic work as both an actor and producer.

RDJ’s fortune in large part is
attributed to his work in the multiple Marvel series. While he earned just
$500,000 for the first “Iron Man” movie, by the third film in the series, his
earnings rose to $70 million.

Downey Jr., the son of an
underground movie director, has a long history in film and television. He
debuted in one of his father’s films, “Pound,” playing a puppy at age 5.

Today, the actor has a lot to
celebrate, namely, nearly 20 years of sobriety. Downey Jr. has been married to
Hollywood producer Susan Downey since 2005. The couple has two children: Exton,
born in February 2012, and Avri, born in November 2014. RDJ also has a son,
Indio Downey, born in 1993 from his first marriage to Deborah Falconer.

He owns numerous properties,
including a seven-acre horse-friendly compound with an ocean view in Malibu,
Calif., which he acquired in September 2009 for $13.4 million. That same month,
RDJ bought a Venice Beach house for $5.6 million, according to Variety.

Pursuitist reports he also has
properties in the Southern California communities of Rustic Canyon and Pacific
Palisades, as well as a spot in the Hamptons. The Downeys paid $11.9 million in
2017 for that New York property, which was a 19th century windmill they
converted into a home.
