Acceptance Speech

The Downey duo knows how to poke fun at each other, both funny in their own ways. One perfect example was when Robert Downey Jr. won a Golden Globe for best actor in a comedy or musical for "Sherlock Holmes".

In his speech, he credits his wife for lack of formality or structure. Apparently, Susan Downey told him not to bother preparing a speech because Matt Damon was gonna win anyway. The crowd laughed, and audiences fell in love with them.

House Tour

In 2017, the Downeys opened their home for Architectural Digest's Youtube series "Open Door" where they visit celebrity homes. The chemistry and love between the two sparked and ignited the video to a new level of intimacy.

It almost feels too intrusive as they walk around their windmill inspired Hampton house, showing off custom art. They were in sync as they showed a modest but tastefully decorated home filled with natural light. The house itself serves as a metaphor for their quirky love story.

The First Time

In several interviews, joint and single, the Downeys retell the way they met on the set of "Gothika" with stars in their eyes. Robert Downey Jr. was a recovering addict with so many quirks and eccentricities, while Susan Downey was a cautious producer with no intention to date him.

Eventually, on a night alone, the two kissed and started dating shortly after. With their odd-couple dynamic, they've been attached at the hip ever since. Though she did make him wait two years before marrying.

Business Partners

Together they forged "Team Downey" a production house known for bringing up films like "The Judge" and the recent "Dolittle". Their business was made after working on many great films together like "Sherlock Holmes".

They made a promise to never be apart for more than two weeks, soon becoming in love with the idea of making movies together to always stay near each other. Now they are an unbeatable team, on set and off set partners, happy in love and life.
