Robert Downey Jr Covers 'Men's Fitness' January/February 2012

Robert Downey Jr. shows off his rugged physique on the cover of January/February’s issue of Men’s Fitness.

Here’s what the 46-year-old Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows actor had to share:

About playing Tony Stark in Iron Man: “I guess I had some notion about [being an action hero]. I think I wanted to be able to look good and defend myself and all that stuff. I’ve always really enjoyed that genre, but I mean, it’s pretty outlandish. I’m not particularly tall or strong or fast or aggressive. Yet, I’m not faking it. To me, it’s a cosmic chuckle.”

On his wife Susan: “What can I even say about her? I’m crazy about her. Everybody’s opinion isn’t right all the time, but as far as averages go, if she wants to, she could hit to the same seat in the bleachers over and over and over again. That sort of consistency is awe-inspiring. We give each other the freedom to explore who and what we really are, which is great, because we’re always changing. I know I’ve changed a fair amount over the last decade, but she’s changed 10 times more than I have.”

On rescuing two kittens: “Eighteen months ago, I’m saying, ‘I don’t want any rescue pets within 100 yards of either of my residences, I’m sorry. I don’t want some, like, tripod, abused animal.’ I was adamantly opposed to the whole idea. And now I couldn’t imagine living without them. I’ve become one of those people where the Missus is like, ‘They don’t want to see iPhone pictures of our kittens right now. Stop it.”

    I’m so happy he’s turned his life and career around. He’s become a very good actor and I hope his success continues for a long time.

  • mya

    kinda odd for someone to not wanna rescue a pet?? i mean ppl dont have to but to be so opposed to it is weird.

  • stange

    @mya: Yeah but he did in the end

  • mya

    @stange: yes i read that – but i found the first part to be weird.

  • jess
  • SnOOKIE

    @PARTY: Jared, ban this psycho

  • m

    @mya:
    at least he is honest about it

  • mya

    @m: uh.. ok? im pretty sure i didnt imply he was dis-honest. i just ‘said’ the comment was weird. i dnt see whats wrong with a rescue-animal. And its a good thing he got past it 2.
