I just re-watched Sherlock Holmes and Ironman 2, and seeing Robert Downey, Jr. reminded me of this clip I saw. You may not agree with everything he’s saying, but I think it’s quite a statement:
He’s talking about how Mel Gibson helped him out when he was coming out of the low point in his life. And I really enjoy the term he used, “Hugging the cactus,” for learning to deal with past issues. It’s an interesting concept, and one that probably everyone could learn something from.
Downey has become someone worth admiring. He always had talent, and now he’s harnessed his talents, cleaned up his act, and blown everyone out of the water. He seems to be quite a guy!
