Downey Jr. Felt Like a Drowning Mouse

8 November 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Former Hollywood badboy Robert Downey, Jr. has likened his struggle with alcohol and drug addiction to being a mouse drowning in a fish-tank. The Chaplin star is celebrating 12 months of sobriety after years of substance abuse, two stints in jail and a shattered public image, but will never forget the feeling of helplessness he experienced during his troubled years. He says, "So why can't I get out of my way? It's because you come to believe that it's a hopeless situation. It's like you take a mouse, and you put him in a fish-tank and fill it with water. The mouse swims to survive but sooner or later he gets tired and falls to the bottom. You do that 20 times, and eventually the mouse just falls straight to the bottom. He's thinking, 'To hell with it - I don't want to swim for 10 minutes, it doesn't matter, I'm falling anyway.' And that's what it's been like for me." »

Downey Jr. Reveals Reason for Moving Wedding

2 September 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Robert Downey, Jr claims he moved his wedding from the New York estate of Ron Perelman and Ellen Barkin at the last minute because the couple gave him "somewhat less" than their best wishes. The Chaplin star and producer Susan Levin were due to exchange nuptials at the billionaire couple's sprawling estate in the Hamptons on Saturday, but switched venues at the last minute, leading people to believe it was because the location had been exposed to the media. And while later reports suggested the move occurred because Perelman didn't want to release photographs of his estate, Downey insists the switch - along with Perelman and Barkin's absence - was rooted in something else. He tells Us TV show Extra!, "As for my disinvitation of Ron and Ellen... they wished us somewhat less than all the happiness in the world." »
