Robert Downey Jr May Stop Acting!

Robert Downey Jr May Stop Acting!

To Act…Or Not To Act…That Is The Question


As promotion of his upcoming movie Sherlock Holmes shifts into high gear, there’s a chance we may not see the star of the movie in anything else aside from his prior commitments. Robert Downey Jr. says he’s torn between having a normal life and spending more time with his wife, or continuing to act.

While Downey Jr. won’t disappear from the big screen in the near feature as he’s contracted for a movie due out in 2011, after that, he may step away from acting.

From A Rocky Start To Stardom

Robert Downey Jr. has certainly had what could best be described as an up and down Hollywood ride. His problems have been well chronicled, and his acting comeback has been amazing. Not bad for a guy who never had any formal acting classes. But, now the star says he might hang up his acting shingle.

Downey says “I’ve never had it this good. This is my day in the sun and I certainly don’t want to look a gift horse in the molars. But, Susan and I want to begin to be in our lives as much as we are in our jobs.” On the other hand, he also doesn’t want to deprive the world of his talents. He goes on to say “I’m really good at what I do and have been for a long time. I don’t waver on that.” But, Downey Jr. admits he does see his acting career’s “inevitable decay” in the future.

In the meantime, aside from this years Christmas release of Sherlock Holmes, Iron Man 2 is slated to come out this summer. Sherlock 2 will probably be made and The Avengers, based on the Marvel comic, is slated for release in 2011. Robert Downey Jr. is also scheduled to do Steven Spielberg’s upcoming Harvey remake.
