I have always had a soft spot for Robert Downey, Jr.
But then I have always had a soft spot for bad boys. Especially bad boys gone good. Doesn’t every woman really? I’m so predictable and not at all unique in any way. Sigh.
Anyway, moving on, the charming and absolutely gorgeous Robert Downey, Jr. is gracing the cover of GQ magazine in the USA this May 2013. And he’s been handing out quite the entertaining quotes about his career, talent and Oscar chances.
He just comes across so down to earth and self-deprecating, it’s amazing. Solid. Impressive.
Robert Downey Jr. on his acting abilities and that of the current generation of actors: “I’m probably one of the best. …But it’s not that big a deal. It’s not like this is the greatest swath or generation of actors that has ever come down the pike.”
On the inevitability of his winning an Oscar: “You know, honestly, my real answer to that is: I don’t care. I used to think I cared, and I couldn’t care less. Now, I’m not saying I wouldn’t get a little choked up, but it is amazing to see how people are literally hyperventilating when they get up there, because they have such an attachment to this outcome. I mean, it’s not like we’re at the f–king Olympics or something.”
