The Very Hollywood Rehabilitation Of Robert Downey Jr.
"For nearly a decade, from the mid-'90s until the early 2000s, Downey was the biggest disaster in Hollywood - excruciating to watch because he had so much potential on screen and was such a mess in life. ... Now Downey is the biggest film star on Earth. Last year, he earned $50 million just for his appearance in The Avengers
- and he isn't shy about admitting that the size of the paycheck is a major motivation."
