Robert Downey Jr. Uses Magic To Stay Sober

April 19th, 2008 // 4 Comments

Robert Downey Jr. is doing all kinds of interviews for his new movie Iron Man, which is being touted as the actor’s big return to Hollywood. Back when it was the guys who were popping in and out of rehab and jail, Robert Downey Jr. was the king of self-destructive behavior.

But now, the charming Oscar nominee is happily married and his career prospects couldn’t look brighter. He credits his support system with keeping him on track.

The actor told TIME magazine, “You get on the right side of the tracks, and you now are actually working with what some people would call magic. It’s not. It’s just you’re not in the f___ing dark anymore, so you know how to get along a little better, you know?”

Uh oh, magic? I hope this doesn’t mean Criss Angel’s part of his new crew.

    So, damn what – if he smokes like a chimney. I am currently a recovering alcoholic/addict and it’s not easy to find sobriety and it is a never-ending and a complete life-changing experience. My hats are off to him – I hope he has peace, happiness and joy….
