When you look at some stars, which came from really rich families, you can’t stop envy them, because they were born with a silver spoon in their mouth. But very often the childhood of celebrities’ kids is awful; it is full of disasters, loneliness and bad habits.
Robert Downey Jr was born in a family of two famous people. He was the son of a filmmaker Robert Downey, Sr. and his wife, an actress Elsie Ann Ford. Robert grew up together with an older sister Elsie Ann Ford
As Robert now remembers, his sister and he were always surrounded with the drugs. Their father was drug addicted and he had never started his day without smoking marijuana. When Robert was 6, his father offered marijuana to the boy. Now Robert Downey, Sr. tells that he regrets about that accident, but then he made his son drug addicted.
Allyson Downey, Roberts’s sister, who is an actress too, got used to drugs as well. She spent many years, struggling against drugs and eating disorders. Allyson coped with her addiction and is now a published author and anti-drugs activist.
As for Downey, he tells, that he got rid from bad habit due to his current wife, Susan Levin Downey. Robert dreamed to create great family from the earliest years. He watched his father’s constant battles with cocaine and then had to pass through his parents’ divorce. Then he witnessed his mother’s alcohol addiction and the way she coped with it, finally getting sober. Although Robert missed his mom very much, when she died on the 22nd of September, 2014, he understood that addiction of his parents was not right.
When Robert Downey Jr. got married for the first time a singer Deborah Falconer, he hoped, his drug addiction wouldn’t ruin his marriage. Nevertheless the couple got divorced on the 26th of April, 2004. They gave a birth to a son Indio in 1993, on the 7th of September.
On the 27th of August, 2005 Robert made the best decision in his life. He married his sweetheart Susan Levin. The wedding was arranged in New York and the ceremony was held in Jewish style. Later Robert thanked to his wife numerous times for her support during his rehab and for their two great children, son Exton, born on the 7th of February, 2012 and a baby daughter Avri, born on the 4th of November, 2014.
