Robert Downey Jr. Covers 'Esquire' May 2012

Robert Downey Jr. suits up for the cover of Esquire‘s May issue.

Here’s what the 47-year-old Avengers star had to share with the mag:

On fatherhood and his newborn son: “I guess here’s what’s come to me in the last three weeks: That anticipation and fear are going to come back. Am I going to know what to do with them? Does any new parent, even if you’re not a first-time parent, ever really know what to do? Only thing you have to do, the only requirement, if you can hack it, is to not transfer your own discomfort in the moment to this fresh soul, right? You got to be mindful. I don’t want to be so confident in myself. It’s that balance between being relaxed enough to not be communicating anxiety and present enough to not be creating the very thing that you were anxious about by being so relaxed — because I’ve seen that parenting style, too.”

On his wife Susan: “If I picked for you the 10 worst moments of my life, they were probably the 10 most defining moments of my life. Whether they’re that complete rejection by a girl that doesn’t even know you’re crazy about her, and you are distracted riding your bike to school, and just as you look over at her, you take a complete ass-over flip into a shrub. And the girl just looks at you and keeps on walking with an expression that says, ‘Who is that schmuck?’ And that’s every bit as significant to me as the moment I met Susan, in a rehearsal space with Halle Berry in Montreal 10 years ago, and thought, Wow, she’s pretty damn cute for a boss.”

Oh please (rolls eyes) Is he trying to sound profound or is he just so full of himself? Tired of him. Esquire should put someone interesting on their cover. He is a snore.

I just freakin’ LOVE it every time he talks about Susan. The most perfect couple in Hollywood.

# 5

I can’t believe they printed this incoherent gibberish!! I thought this guy cleaned up his act…he doesn’t seem “all there”.

# 6

Most of the time he doesn’t make any sense. I don’t know if it’s on purpose or that’s just the way he is. Anyway, he’s one of the BEST actors out there.

# 7

he looks like a man trying to get into wall street.
should have givin him more suave

# 8

Love Robert and Susan. I’m so glad he’s a sobriety success story. He’s never looked better and congrats on the new little one.

# 9

Like him lots! Stylish, funny, genius actor and seems like a nice guy! Go RDJ!

RDJ must be on drug since a while because he is so coc-ky like coke, rehab next
