Anyone can be replaced. Anyone? ANYONE? Maybe at some point, sure. But there’s a reason Marvel agreed on a big payout for RDJ to come as Tony Stark Iron Man. It’s because right now, he’s the only one the people want. The people decided he was the best yesterday. And he rewarded them with…well…himself in return. Full Story

Page Six ran a headline on Saturday about where celebrities are spending the holidays: “Is St. Barts losing its exclusivity?” Something about a lot of famous people skipping out on St Barts this year because there are no Russian billionaires there paying for all the parties. Full Story

Two years in a row… The Avengers was the biggest movie of 2012. Iron Man 3 is the biggest movie of 2013. That’s $1.2 billion in global box office. And you cannot argue that that has a lot to do with RDJ’s appeal. Somehow, in his 40s, Robert Downey Jr became bigger than Johnny Depp and Tom Cruise. Full Story

As IF Terrence Howard

 This b-tch. Terrence Howard played Rhodey, Tony Stark’s best friend, in the first Iron Man movie. He was good in the role. I enjoyed their chemistry. I enjoyed his exasperation every time Tony behaved like, well, Tony. Clearly Howard enjoyed himself too. Because he wanted more money to come back for the sequel(s). Full Story

And Jason Bateman and Joel Silver and Reese Witherspoon and Jon Favreau and Maya Rudolph and Gwen and Gavin… Oh and Justin Theroux. But not Jennifer Aniston. I guess she was busy. Because she and G are friends post-Pitt. Proof!  Full Story

Director James Toback tried sh-t on Robert Downey Jr last week because, I dunno, he stopped using black tar heroin and became a mega movie star…? Click here for a refresher. Toback claims he made RDJ. And, I think?, was trying to say that when RDJ got clean he ended up losing his artistic edge, and now works only for money and not for the creative payoff. Full Story

Not me, not me. Definitely not me. On my birthday last month, while we were out for dinner, for some reason Sasha’s husband brought up an old movie called Black and White, directed by James Toback. I think it’s because we were talking about Gaby Hoffmann and the randomness of the cast – Scott Caan, Claudia Schiffer, Ben Stiller, Elijah Wood, Mike Tyson, Wu-Tang Clan, and Robert Downey Jr. Full Story

If Michael Fassbender doesn’t want it… RDJ presented to Jared Leto last night at the Hollywood Film Awards. Jared was honoured for his performance in Dallas Buyers Club with Breakout Performance Award, even though he’s 41 and has been acting for a long time. He was humbled by the recognition though, at least that’s how he fronted. Full Story

RDJ’s been pretty flawless the last few years. You know he’s my top jam. I love him so much. I don’t even mind it when he sings (although, to be honest, it’s not my favourite). Music might actually be where RDJ and I don’t meet. Here he is on Sunday night at the Hollywood Bowl for the 2013 Honda Civic Tour featuring Maroon 5. Full Story

Better clench up Legolas! If you’ve been reading this blog for at least a year, you know I love The Avengers. I’ve seen it probably 20 times. So this is exciting for me. Not only because these are new photos of Robert Downey Jr – and that’s never sh-t – but because it’s RDJ with Legolas Orlando Bloom. Full Story

RDJ’s Iron Man 3 will likely be the movie that made the most money in 2013. The Avengers was the movie that made the most money in 2012. So Marvel promised RDJ a LOT more money to be in more movies. Now HTC has signed RDJ to a 2 year deal to help them sell some phones. The company is spending a billion – yes, that’s a BILLION – dollars on the campaign overall. Full Story

As Sarah wrote yesterday, Joss Whedon announced at Comic-Con that the second Avengers movie would be called The Avengers: Age Of Ultron about a robot who is obsessed with immortality, or something. Look, google it if you want the nerd description. Full Story

Nice way to start the weekend, non? RDJ being a ham, and consistently awesome, entertaining fans who’d been waiting to see him in Dedham, MA today. What else can I say? Enjoy him. Enjoy your bbq. Enjoy the beach. Enjoy the winter, if that’s where you are. Enjoy two days off, if you get it. Full Story

Uneasy is the head that wears the crown It would apply to Will Smith, Johnny Depp, Tom Cruise, once all kings of the box office. For now though, RDJ’s reign seems pretty secure. He was first out with Iron Man 3. They came, they tried, they were turned away. It’s unlikely now that any other movie this year will match or exceed Tony Stark’s take. Full Story
