Robert Downey Jr. Discusses Son Indio's Drug Problems, Says It's a Family Problem

Robert Downey Jr. pops out of a window on the cover of Vanity Fair‘s October 2014 issue, on newsstands September 16.

Here is what the 49-year-old The Judge actor had to share with the mag:

On his son Indio’s drug problems: “He’s his mother’s son and my son, and he’s come up the chasm much quicker than we did. But that’s typical in the Information Age; things get accelerated. You’re confronted with histories and predispositions and influences and feelings and unspoken traumas or needs that weren’t met, and all of a sudden you’re three miles into the woods. Can you help someone get out of those woods? Yes, you can. By not getting lost looking for them. Pick a dysfunction and it’s a family problem.”

On playing Iron Man in the Marvel series: “I’ve gone from being convinced that I am the sole integer in the approbation of a phenomenon to realizing that I was the lead in the first of a series of movies that created a chain reaction that, if everything didn’t fire the way it was supposed to, there’s no operator, no anything. And you go, O.K., life is doing something here that included me but did not require me. But, yes, that role means a lot. Marvel is kind of like this sacred brotherhood.”

Robert Downey Jr.'s Son Indio Charged with Felony Drug Possession

Indio Downey, the 20-year-old son of actor Robert Downey Jr., has been charged with felony possession of a controlled substance, according to TMZ.

Back in June, Indio was arrested after cops noticed he was smoking something out of a pipe while in the passenger seat of a friend’s car. He was in possession of cocaine at the time.

Because Indio is a first time offender, he is automatically entitled to enter a drug diversion program. In addition to the felony charge, he was also charged with misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

Robert, who famously struggled with addiction throughout his life, publicly thanked the Sheriff’s department for their intervention.

Robert Downey Jr.'s Son Indio Arrested for Cocaine Possession

Robert Downey Jr.‘s son Indio (pictured here back in May 2008) was arrested this weekend for cocaine possession, according to TMZ.

The 20-year-old was driving around in the passenger seat with one of his friends on Sunday (June 29) at around 2pm PT in West Hollywood, Calif. when a cop pulled up alongside the car and noticed the passenger smoking out of a pipe.

The car was pulled over and an L.A. County Sheriff’s deputy did a search, which resulted in allegedly finding cocaine in Indio‘s possesion. He was arrested, taken to jail, and then posted his $10,000 bail just after midnight.

Robert famously struggled with drug addiction and spent time in prison before cleaning up his act and rebooting his career.
