Robert Downey Jr’s son Indio was arrested for cocaine possession

Robert Downey Jr's son Indio was arrested for cocaine possession

Back in the nineties, Robert Downey, Jr. suffered from an addiction to cocaine and now his son appears to be going through the same thing. It’s sad, really…

Indio was a passenger in a car that was driving in West Hollywood yesterday when he decided to smoke something from a pipe in front of a cop. So naturally he was pulled over and arrested. He posted his $10,000 bail shortly after midnight and has since been released.

His famous dad has released this statement: “Unfortunately there’s a genetic component to addiction and Indio has likely inherited it. Also, there is a lot of family support and understanding, and we’re all determined to rally behind him and help him become the man he’s capable of being. We’re grateful to the Sheriff’s department for their intervention, and believe Indio can be another recovery success story instead of a cautionary tale.”

Kudos to the family for tackling this problem head-on. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that Indio can come through addiction like his father has.

‘Gravity’ almost starred Angelina Jolie and Robert Downey Jr., according to the director.

"World War Z" Germany PremiereRobert Downey Jr. Films "The Judge"

According to the director of ‘Gravity,’ the movie almost starred Angelina Jolie and Robert Downey Jr. instead of Sandra Bullock and George Clooney.

Alfonso Cuaron, 52, revealed the news during a 90-minute interview with “The Hollywood Masters,” a series held at Loyola Merymount University in Los Angeles, in front of the college’s film and television students.

“I thought I had written a small movie … just one character floating in space,” Cuaron said. “We started developing stuff (trying) to figure out the technology. And the luxury (was) that we could try many things.”

Cuaron revealed he originally approached Angeline Jolie for the role of Ryan Stone, which eventually went to Sandra Bullock. “I had conversations with Angelina, but then she went to do one film, and then she was going to direct (the upcoming 2014 drama ‘Unbroken’),” Cuaron explained. “Something happens, you part ways.”

Robert Downey Jr.
was in talks to play astronaut Mike Kowalski, but the director said his participation was hampered by the technology used to film “Gravity.” (What does that even mean?) The role went to George Clooney instead.

“Gravity” went on to earn more than $700 million, and has been nominated for 10 Oscars.

How do you think the movie would have been with Angelina Jolie and Robert Downey Jr. in the leads?

Robert Downey Jr. wears lederhosen to the premiere of ‘Iron Man 3’!

Who doesn’t love Robert Downey Jr.?

This may be the first time I’ve ever seen anyone rocking a lederhosen on the red carpet. Robert Downey Jr., 48, was spotted last night wearing this festive outfit at the ‘Iron Man 3′ premiere in Munich, Germany, (well that explains it).

His costar Gwyneth Paltrow also appeared at the premiere, and looked much more red-carpet ready! How adorable are the two of them, seriously.

LOTS MORE PICS AFTER THE JUMP! (more…)
