Robert Downey Jr.'s quotes
- I've always felt like such an outsider in this industry. Because I'm so insane, I guess.
- The higher the stakes, the happier I am, the better I will be.
- I'm not used to feeling like I belong where I am.
- A lot of my peer group think I'm an eccentric bisexual, like I may even have an ammonia-filled tentacle or something somewhere on my body. That's okay.
- I've become a picky little bitch. I've never bothered to plan projects before. I just used to throw the script across the room and say, "Why do they keep sending me this horseshit?" And then I'd start rehearsals two weeks later.
- [on his addiction to drugs] It's like I have a loaded gun in my mouth, and I like the taste of metal.
- It's a blanket statement to say, "That guy's really sharp and amicable and nice," because there's a little bit of asshole in every nice guy, and there's a little bit of genius in every moron.
- I know very little about acting. I'm just an incredibly gifted faker.
- It was so nice to go into this fake courtroom [on Ally McBeal (1997)]. I immediately went up into the judge's chair. Nice view. A preferable perspective.
- [on Black and White (1999)] A stage slap from Mike Tyson is like a shovel whack from a normally fortified male.
- Tofu is the root of all evil, and there's only one thing that can change a man's mind, and that's a modified Uzi with an extra-long clip.
- [on why he did Danger Zone (1996)] Five hundred grand for two weeks.
- [on Restoration (1995)] I just thought [Hugh Grant] was a dick, that's all. And I still do. You know, and that could be something that has to do with me, or it could just be that not everyone in this industry is someone I'd care to hang out with.
- I don't want to go all Michael Jackson on you, but I never really had a childhood.
- I have a sense of destiny that you are led to the things you are supposed to do.
- [on Mickey Rourke] He's so good. And he's formidable and he's very much reminding me of that kind of charming, confident guy that we know.
- What do you say, though -- if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plan.
- [on his role as an Australian actor playing a black man in Tropic Thunder (2008)] I thought it was a completely incendiary idea and I blame it all on Ben Stiller and DreamWorks.
- [on the Oscars ceremony] It is amazing to see how people are literally hyperventilating when they get up there, because they have such an attachment to this outcome.
- Nobody has cornered Halloween as a market since Halloween (1978).
- It's hard for me to watch Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005) and not get nostalgic about it. It's not perfect but in some ways, I think it's the best thing I've ever done. I don't know why.
- My intent is to dominate the playing field for as long as I can, with my own challenges, with myself.
- I don't drink these days. I am allergic to alcohol and narcotics. I break out in handcuffs.
