The first detailed and authoritative account of the life, career, stardom, and controversy of one of Hollywood's most popular and gifted actors "I've always felt like an outsider in this industry. Because I'm so insane I guess." --Robert Downey Jr. Robert Downey Jr.'s life isn't a movie--but it could be. This biography is an insightful, devastating, scathing, and ultimately uplifting journey into the realms of Hollywood's darkest excesses and successes. Downey now commands $25 million a movie--not bad for someone who 10 years ago was in prison, addicted to heroin and cocaine, and one bad choice away from death. Sherlock Holmes was one of last year's biggest blockbusters, with its sequel expected at the end of 2011, while summer 2010 blockbuster Iron Man 2 continued the fun and the high praise for Downey of its predecessor. His is without a doubt Hollywood's greatest ever comeback.
