"In ten years, hopefully I will still be doing what I’m doing now: acting. I would love to have a family; to be an incredible mother, while continuing my career. I don’t ever want to get bored with all this. I want to stay excited and enchanted with everything."

I didn’t want to talk about what my dad did because it wasn’t like he was directing “All in the Family” or anything. He was doing these crazy films. Mom would pick me up at school wearing this big quilted cape. I felt like I was in a J.D. Salinger story. Dad’s Jewish and Irish, Mom’s German and Scotch. I couldn’t say I was anything. My last name isn’t even Downey. My dad changed his name when he wanted to get into the Army and was underage. My real name is Robert Elias. I feel like I’m still looking for a home in some way. - Robert Downey Jr.
I really do see the good in people, and I don’t want to change that. T’hat’s really how I view things, so sometimes I’ll look past a lot of huge red flags because I see something else in someone. T’hen of course it always comes back to haunt me in the long run.
