Last night, January 13th, Robert Downey Jr – and wife, Susan – attended the 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards. Although Robert was not up for any awards this season, he had the distinct honor of not only introducing Jodie Foster to the stage to accept the Cecil B. DeMille Award but paying great tribute to her as well. There plenty of Downey jokes, as to be expected, but the kind words offered to his friend were truly wonderful. Jodie also gave an amazing (and some would say historical) speech, so it’s worth checking out in its entirety:
After the Globes ceremony, Robert and Susan headed to the Oasis Courtyard at the Beverly Hilton Hotel for the annual Warner Brothers & InStyle after-party. There’s no use in listing who among Hollywood was also in attendance, because it’s probably easier to say who didn’t attend! Check out pics in the gallery.
On January 9th, Robert Downey Jr attended the 39th Annual People’s Choice Awards — and took home two trophies himself. Congratulations, Robert! In the video below, you can see him accepting the award for both Favorite Movie Actor and Favorite Superhero. Although he gave a fun speech as usual, he beautifully ended it with a tribute to an old fan and friend who recently passed away. Check out numerous pictures from the event in the gallery, including images from the show (alongside Jennifer Lawrence and Naomi Watts, the later of whom Downey complimented for her work in The Impossible during his speech), backstage (alongside Eddie Redmayne, who was recently rumored to snag a leading role in a Marvel movie), and the press room.
On December 7th, Robert Downey Jr and wife, Susan, attended the 7th annual March of Dimes: Celebration of Babies. The event – held every year – helps raise money for the non-profit organization which focuses on pregnancy and baby health. This year, Downey friend Reese Witherspoon was an honoree, receiving the Grace Kelly Award, recognizing role-model celebrity parents. According to Hollywood Life, the 2012 Celebration of Babies raised an amazing one million dollars.
Just as was previously announced, Robert Downey Jr attended the Mending Kids International’s “Four Kings & An Ace” celebrity poker tournament on December 1st. He was joined by Jodie Foster, actress and director of Home for the Holidays (starring Robert). There doesn’t appear to be any information about the event yet – including money earned for the charity and how RDJ fared – but hopefully something will emerge soon. In the meantime, enjoy the numerous pictures from the red carpet.
Edit: Here’s a (short) clip of Robert at the event, courtesy of “Extra!”
On November 30th, Robert Downey Jr got in the holiday spirit as he visited Muscle Beach in Venice (Los Angeles), CA for the inaugural sign lighting ceremony. Robert was the lucky man to flip on the sign’s switch this year and was joined by Los Angeles City Councilmember, Bill Rosendahl. Other activities throughout the evening included photo sessions with Santa, Jingle Bell Rockers, holiday shopping parties, drink and food specials, art, and live music. All proceeds from the event benefitted the Muscle Beach Toy Drive. Check out a video from the lighting below:
Here’s a short behind the scenes look on the recently releasedCall of Duty: Black Ops 2 trailer. Although Robert Downey Jr doesn’t make any comments to the camera in the video, he is featured several times throughout (and even labeled as “arguably the biggest movie star in the world”). It’s also just a pretty fun look at what went on during filming, so expect lots of… “surprises.”
