My brother Devin (above left) looks a lot like Robert Downey Jr. I know this because every single time we go out in public at least one person will come up to him and tell him he looks like Robert Downey Jr. It’s gotten to the point where people will say, “I don’t know if anyone’s told you, but…” and Devin just goes, “…that I look like Robert Downey Jr? A few people have.” The day someone is actually trying to inform him that he has toilet paper stuck to his shoe will be quite entertaining.
A few months ago, I was walking through Pike Place Market in Seattle and this girl glanced at me and did a double take. My first reaction was, “Oh god is there bird poop in my hair?” But then she grabbed my arm and said, “I thought you were Billie Piper!” I’ll be cruising on that compliment for the next few years. So how about you? Do you ever get compared to a certain celebrity? Who would play you in the movie version of your life?
This weekend, I finished Mockingjay, the third and final book in The Hunger Games trilogy. I had to put the book down multiple times so I could cry and then, at the end, I cried again because it was all over and I couldn’t go back in time to when I hadn’t read them yet and start all over. What a great series. Seriously, if you haven’t read them, DO, and before the movie version of the first book comes out.
Speaking of, casting decisions for the film are readily being made…

Gwyneth Paltrow says that learning to belt out twangy tunes for the movie “Country Strong” was a challenge. But the hardest part of her role as Kelly Canter, a country singer on the comeback trail after going to rehab, was learning to play an alcoholic. So how did Gwynnie do it? She consulted her good bud, Robert Downey Jr. “I just couldn’t understand how you could be so drunk that you could wreck people’s lives and then wake up the next day and pretend everything was fine. I struggled with that,” she said. “I asked Robert, ‘How does this work?’ He was really articulate about addiction and the psychology behind it. He really helped me a lot.” We hope she just asked him with choicer words than, “What was it like when you were a total f**k-up?” [Huffington Post]

“I think we should probably try to have a girl, because I don’t want another male entity to have to compete; I don’t want [my 17-year-old son] Indio to feel there’s another boy in my life. But I don’t know what we’d have to do [to have a girl]. Do we have to put it in a spoon and hang it upside-down?”
“When the door clicks shut, then you are safe. There is nothing aside from a rogue correctional officer that can do you harm if you have the right cellie. You are actually in the safest place on Earth. Safe from the intruders.”
—”Ironman” Robert Downey Jr. tells Rolling Stone about the stints he spent in prison in 1997 and 1999 for drug possession and violating the terms of his parole. Maybe I watched too many episodes of “Oz,” but I’m just not buying it. [NY Daily News]
“I couldn’t get her off of me. It was embarrassing … She said to me that I didn’t know what I was doing, like it didn’t feel good. ‘I’m like, you know what? First of all, we’re all friends, so what would be creepy would be if I was coming off all sexy to you—which by the way, I’ve done that in movies and it creeps them out. So what am I going to creep you out for?’ Despite what she said on set, she still thinks about it.”
Because we’ll never run out of excuses to root for men in leotards, we’re excited for the slew of superhero movies that are currently in the works. Last week, we swooned when we heard that Ryan Reynolds had been cast as the Green Lantern, everyone’s favorite super hero test pilot. “Thor” is also gearing up for filming, Natalie Portman will be appearing in it alongside Chris Hemsworth—Kirk’s hot dad in “Star Trek.” And then there’s “Iron Man 2.” Robert Downey Jr. assures us that the new flick will be sex-soaked. “We’re horny,” he said. “Not, like, can’t-bring-your-kids horny. Just… horny.” [I'm Not Obsessed]
So which of these super heroes should we Shun, Shag, or Marry? Keep reading »
