Film Journalist confesses that there was always something he didnt like about Robert Downey Jr., and now he knows what he is: the actor is a Republican. This explains why he appears in movies Film Journalist doesnt like, says film journalist. More:
In 2009 Downey conveyed his politically rightward drift to N.Y. Times reporter David Carr. I have a really interesting political point of view, and its not always something I say too loud at dinner tables here, but you cant go from a $2,000-a-night suite at La Mirage to a penitentiary and really understand it and come out a liberal. You cant. I wouldnt wish that experience on anyone else, but it was very, very, very educational for me and has informed my proclivities and politics ever since. [Emphasis Film Journalist's -- RD].
Film Journalist doesnt stop to wonder what Downey might have meant by that. What did he see in prison, what might he have had done to him in prison, that forced his political conversion? There are really interesting questions there, but not to Film Journalist, to whom this quote from Downey has value only in that it confirms that hes a horrible, filthy, no good right-winger. Film Journalist finds an Unnamed Source who knew Downey back then to say that yes, the man is a whore:

I will watch *anything* he’s in.
[Even Iron Man]
It is really a good movie. I think I remember a part in the movie where he’s dining with Nazis....and a woman says something about the disabled being a ‘drain on the system’. That fits libs to a capital “T”.
I KNEW there was a reason I was pulling for this guy to get his act together.
Welcome home Robert Downey, Jr.
One heck of a great actor. Let’s hope he can persuade some of the gullible, ignorant liberals in Hollywood with his non-conventional, conservative perspective.
"I don't care about the liberal agenda."
What he saw in jail scared him. Evil is scary even to brave men.
“Chaplin would have had a field day with the Rahm, Axelrod, Michelle and Obama characters.”
Doubtful he would have gone after them. Chaplin was on the Left.
Loved Chaplin, even though I hated RD Jr. at the time. Seems he has his mind right, finally.
You said it, Mama!
(I feel old, too...I also remember Downey, Jr. before he was a bad boy ;)
I read Chaplin moved rightward by the ‘60s and was disparaging of the “hippie” movement.
I was pretty sure after Ironman.
I think Richard Pryor after making a movie at the AZ state pen said; “I talked to ‘em and - thank God we got penitentiaries.”
Well he would’ve been about 19 or 20 when Regan took office so perhaps he was just too your to know what he thought?
Please repost that and clean it up. Lazy is not a virtue.
very easy on the eyes!
And the scene where he appears before congress....love it.
The Lord put him on my heart when he was having rough time with drugs. We started praying for him to be blessed and be delivered from drugs and come to know Jesus . I was so glad when he appeared to beat the drugs, what a sweet man. We still pray for him and I read he and his wife had a baby recently. I know God’s hand is on him. We prayed for Michael Douglas to be healed of cancer along with who knows how many Christians and his recovery was a miracle I believe. The Lord loves them all. (Drew Barrymore is on our prayer list too for ten years now)
I was thinking that exact thing....Horowitz was also raised as a “red diaper” baby. Also noticed his charactor in Iron Man was rather like John Galt or Reardon.
Have you seen “Less Than Zero”? That and “Sid and Nancy” (with Gary Oldman) should keep your nieces and nephews off of drugs...
Amazing after LTZ that Downey fell into the trap of drugs.....but on another note, Jamie Gertz was a major hottie in that movie, and The Bangles did a good cover of Simon and Garfunkle’s “Hazy Shade of Winter.”
