For several years the actor Robert Downey Jr. He had serious problems due to his drug addiction, but after a rehabilitation process he reactivated his career, obtaining success in the movies of Marvel when interpreting the character of Tony Stark / Iron Man. Now he made it known that explaining to the press then how he overcame that stage of his life was “unnecessarily humiliating.”
In an interview he gave to the magazine of the New York Times, Downey Jr. revealed that being in that position before the media was uncomfortable: “I remember with great pride that I was even able to address something like that in a public forum. However, it irritated me deeply. He felt strangely punitive and needlessly humiliating. However, the challenge is: ‘Yeah, so what? Fuck what you’re going through. Can you show up for this?’…Once you’re there, you have to take the punches.”
Robert (who a few days ago promoted his most recent film “Openheimer”) also called the current “cancel culture” “disconcerting”: “I’m around people right now who have gotten caught up in this reiteration of the nature of culture that it’s like a pendulum on who’s on. good and who doesn’t It’s disconcerting.” In this sense, the actor recommended those who are not currently favored by the public to “stay still” and wait for things to calm down a bit.
