He made his debut in cinema at the age of five and played a sick puppy in the movie "Zagon" (1970), then at the age of seven he starred in "The Palace of Grisera" (1972). At age 10, he lived in England and studied classical ballet as part of a broader educational program. He grew up in Greenwich Village and studied at the Stagedoor Manor Performing Arts Center in northern New York when he was a teenager. When his parents divorced in 1978, Downey moved to California with his father, but in 1982 he left high school in Santa Monica, and moved to New York to pursue an acting career.
Near the beginning of the 1990s, Downey became a sought-after actor, in part due to his roles in the films "Air America" (1990), "The Great Foam" (1991) and "Native Killers" (1994).

According to Downey himself, his acquaintance with marijuana took place at the age of 8, not without the help of his own father. After a series of high-profile scandals in the late 1990s, Downey returned to the screen with a secondary role in the television series "Ellie McBeal", which brought him the first "Golden Globe" in 2001. Then came the roles in a number of successful films, including "Gothic" (2003), "Kiss in the Strong" (2005) and "Zodiac" (2007). In 2008, the "Soldiers of Failure" appeared, which brought Downey the second Oscar nomination, and the "Iron Man", which marked the beginning of a large-scale media franchise called "The Marvel Cinema Universe". In the latter Downey played the role of super hero Tony Stark / Iron Man - the same role, he soon repeated in the films "Iron Man 2" (2010), "Avengers" (2012), "Iron Man 3" (2013), The First Avenger: Confrontation” (2016) and "Spider-Man: Returning Home"(2017).
