Encounters With Celebrities/Robert Downey Junior

Robert Downey Jr. is one of my more favorite celebrities...partly because of his enigmatic screen presence ....but also because he one of those people who rocked out in the '90's. I met him a few years ago in Santa Monica while he was talking on his cell it was a bit weird because I got excited when I saw him and he didn't want to be disturbed while he was on his phone. I was surprised that he was tall because the screen makes him seem short. My favorite film of his is the Oliver Stone movie called Natural Born Killers that came out in the '90's when he played a spastic journalist who was covering the antics of Mickey and Mallory Knox.

The scenes were hilarious because here was a journalist who was in the midst of a riot and chugging along while dodging the two emphatic serial killers. Robert Downey Jr. was going through a difficult time in the '90's when he was arrested numerous times for his rebellious attitude which was well publicized.....along with Johnny Depp's. The '90's were a time for trashing hotel rooms and being the rock star or any type of star....for that matter. It seems as if those days have lingered away. Where are those rebellious people?
