"...and the funny thing was - seconds and inches, dude - I swear to God, we woke up this morning, and again she was the hottest fuckin' chick I ever saw. It was just like the first time I took her hand in the cigar bar in Montreal, 'cuz she had a headache and I had to get my hands on her anyway..."

"I'm married to a great woman, she gets to be my boss and we get to raise our baby together. That's the true center of my universe"

"There's no understanding for me of the bigger picture in real time in a hands-on way without her. Because it was the perfect, perfect, perfect matching of personalities and gifts."

"I can't ever imagine a life before her. I've certainly come to believe that Mrs. Downey and I together are definitely better than me alone or me and anybody else."

"There's something about her that is so pure and...right, but then there's the other stuff too, the shadowy side of her that is delightful and that she shows only to me."

"I get bored really easily. I get bored with people really easily. I get bored with routine easily. I don’t like things that are average, or normal. I care if I have the best – in the world about that - just wanting that great light that everybody looks at and goes ‘Ahhh’. I feel like that’s what I’ve found in my partner."

"She is the font of all good things"

"she has inspired me to stay sober and drug-free ... she is my soul mate and my anchor."

"Whatever I was hungry for when I met Susan, I couldn't have known how much more satisfying what I got would be."

"But first and foremost, there was that look in Susan Downey's eyes - just like, "Wow." It's so rare that this happens, that if you don't have someone to share it with when it does, it would be awful. Just appreciating that we have each other."

"She will be Mrs Downey for the rest of her days on earth if I have anything to say about it, my wedding ring means everything to me. I had it inscribed with the Latin for 'Until the wheels fall off' and I mean that."

"For whatever reason, when we came together, there was a sense of hope and excitement and possibility. If there was no Hollywood, no next movie, no deal at Warner Brothers, no place in Malibu or Venice, I would still be really happy."

"Things started to change when I met my life partner, Mrs. Downey. She told me, ‘I’m not doing that drug dance with you. I’m drawing a line in the sand here.’ She was absolutely clear about it. That doesn’t mean that other women, business associates, movie directors, insurance companies, judges and law enforcement hadn’t been clear about it too. It was that, before I met Mrs. Downey, I just didn’t give a goddamn. What changed is that I cared.”

"I didn't care about having a family or making a home. I didn't think about kids. It's not that I didn't want those things, I just didn't think about them. And then I had someone who came in as a tornado, this creative, beautiful ball of insane energy and passion. And it completely opened me up."

"They’ve been married since 2005, though he flirts with her like they’re just dating - and picks on her like they’re in grade school."


Team Downey – yes, that really is the name – is based in an ultra-modern $6 million three-storey building in the terminally hip, bohemian Venice district of Los Angeles.

One entire wall on the ground floor is given over to pop-art portraits of every single employee, but by far the largest is that of Downey and his wife. The emphasis might be on the team aesthetic, but there’s no ambiguity about who’s ultimately in charge. Ascend to the upper floors and you find a large kitchen, three ridiculously plush bedrooms, a projection room and a terrace with barbecue and swimming pool.


 Act three of Sherlock 1 was serviceable, but not really very good. With this new movie, we agreed it needed to be a big improvement. Sherlock 2 starts off good, gets better and has the best act three of any movie I’ve ever done. It’s like the best sex of your life – if, that is, the best sex of your life took two years from start to finish.


Life is good,’ he says. ‘With a new baby on the way, maybe I ought to think about slowing down a little. But I can’t see that happening in the short term.
