robert downey jr – is that you?


good evening! don’t you love it when an actor shows up on the red carpet not looking like themselves? like when cutie ryan gosling packed on a few extra pounds not too long ago – well yesterday robert downey jr was at the hollywood premiere of fred claus (which looks like the worst movie imaginable – totally not my type of movie at all) and he certainly looked a little different with his dirty blond hair along with a few extra pounds – at first i couldn’t tell who it was and then i was all oh my gosh – he looks different! i’m sure he changed his look up a bit for a new movie role – i believe he’s filming tropic thunder directed by ben stiller (the film that owen wilson dropped out of) robert downey jr. for sure has had his fair share of issues & drama (he was in rehab back when britney & lindsay were in grade school) but he always managed to bounce back and he truly is one of our finest actors! (i’m assuming the boy next to him is his son – you can see the resemblance easily)



yesterday’s premiere also was a nightmare for hollywood blvd which was partially blocked off causing the usual traffic fun – not good times! as per usual i can’t believe monday is almost here – the weekends are such a tease! (i did manage to get in a lot of time playing guitar hero III which is insanely fun & addictive but it made my fingers numb – my pal joey did warn me – she was right!) pobytes over & out for now…xxoo!



PS while shopping at the beverly center yesterday i spotted ryan cabrera with his girlfriend riley keough (elvis’ granddaughter) who were at the puppy store – which is a mandatory stop for me anytime i go there – although the puppies are way overpriced – people need to go to a shelter instead but i can’t help from seeing those sweet little puppy faces!

  • aw!

    downey looks like shit with blond hair. i hope it’s temporary! at least he’s staying clean and being a decent human being now. i like him as an actor, too.

  • Klappstuhl

    Considering that he shaved and bleached his hair (in a rather tasteless way), I’d say the Production on Iron Man is done and all that is missing is the CGI from ILM.

  • Virginia Abreu de Paula

    Robert Downey, Jr. is always different, being blond or not. People who got surprised he went blond for a while, are not “experts” in Robert. He is a kind of genius, who will never worry that much on what people, let alone silly fans, will think about him. By the way, though I love his brown hair, he looks amazing in the pictures above. Really handsome.

  • WTF!

    i dont mind at all how his hair looks. in the tropic thunder trailers, he actually looked really good in it. color’s fine.. but the do? what up with the curl thing.. and i know he deserves a break from all the work out for iron man, but can you please explain why he looks extra extra heavy on that picture? i mean, who can tell.. maybe its just the picture– but he does look.. uhm.. unhealthy? lol (and quite stressed a little bit if i should say)
