Robert Downey Jr.

Good Genes or Good Docs?

3/1/2009 5:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Robert Downey Jr. really is back ... better than ever.

Robert Downey
Here's 25-year-old Downey back in 1991(left) -- and 18 years later, the 43-year-old version at the Oscars this week (right).

Getting arrested and going to rehab a bunch of times really does the body good.

5th BITCHES!!!! Woo Hoo!!! Take that.
Anyway, I met Robert Downey Jr when he was here on Kauai filming Tropic Thunder. We took a photo and he was a really nice guy and let me tell you, he's not had any word done at all. He really looks great in person.

Robert Downey Jr. TAKES CARE of himself. It's possible to look good if you exercise regularly and don't binge on junk food--Yes, he 's had a troubled past, but I respect his courage for working his way back to the top. If he had kept on with his abusive habits, it WOULD show in his face. Just look at Keith Richards!

He's just had a shave and haircut since his latest movie has wrapped, that's all. He's looking damn fine!!

Robert Downey, Jr.'s dad is still hot and he's in his either 60's or 70's. Downey is a good guy, just got messed up in drugs. Glad to see he's doing well and continuing to act 'cause he is definitely a great actor.

Looks like a normal 43 year old to me. Well, maybe the hair color isn't completely natural, but the face is.

Only an eyebrow lift...you can tell by the shape of his eyebrow's in a side by side. Very natural and he looks great. This is the way people are suppose to have plastic surgery.
