Robert Downey Jr.

Good Genes

or Good Docs?

5/9/2010 4:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Robert Downey Jr. is a super hero.


Here's the 22-year-old "Less Than Zero" star back in 1987 (left) -- and 23 years later, the 45-year-old version at an event in Beverly Hills last month (right).

Iron man, indeed.

Neither... It is martial arts... specifically Wing Chun... all about Wing Chun. I have been training with the same instructor for 2 years and it has changed my life. I lost 40 lbs, half of my body-fat and have energy to burn. I train 6 days a week, 3 hours a day and LOVE it.



#9. Downey was in prison... In a rather hard prison for over a year. He went to Corcoran... not some minimum security "resort" prison.

good genes...could you imagine if he had stayed off drugs,he'd look like a baby! of course he still has a great look, a little scruffy, but sexy.

I love Robert Downey Jr., but his nose is different, as are his eyes. Specifically his eyebrows. That's not just the job of a good esthetician, but he had the raised or something. Regardless, who cares? he looks great. And plastic surgery was never meant to look like you had work done.

He has always been the most talented and handsome man in Hollywood. I'm glad he is finally getting the credit he deserves.

He looks find - less bloated that when he was younger and the dark circles under the eyes shows his age; maybe even looks a bit older. He's probably eating better as part of the therapy. Whether he can stay clean still remains to be seen. Once a junkie, always a junkie.

good brain i think..not anyone can pull off drugs the fun and positive way...and he's smarter than people think..good witty humor shows it...those who spit are the stiff tree people-most of them boring and overly dramatic to themselves too...and ...shelly, you ****-he's not a conservative

He looked good then and he looks good now. Men always look their best in their 40's.

good genes all the way. that nose is still imperfect, he's not changed a bit, except getting older and more distinguished looking.

The '87 photo was clearly a time of drugs and alcohol.His face is puffy and his eyes are glassed over. RDJ looks so unhealthy here. Today he's living clean and it shows. So proud of the way he's come through.

Good Genes. You can tell that he just grew into his features. No docs. Its impossible. I don't think that a doc could do THAT good of a job. And people shouldn't be using his previous drug use to attack him. That's in the past. Whats done is done. He's just trying to make the best of what hes got and apparently hes doing fine. So just leave him be.
