“RDJ reveals his top films in the past 25 years that hold special significance”

Robert Downey Jr., a well-known actor in Hollywood, has revealed the two most important films of his recent career. Despite being recognized for his role as Tony Stark in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films, including “Iron Man” and “Avengers: Endgame,” the 58-year-old actor named “The Shaggy Dog” and “Dolittle” as the most significant films he has done in the last 25 years. “The Shaggy Dog,” a 2006 family comedy film starring Tim Allen, features Downey Jr. as Dr. Kozak, the villain in the movie. On the other hand, “Dolittle,” released in 2020, stars Downey Jr. as the title character, a physician who can speak with animals. Despite these films’ negative reviews, Downey Jr. considers them important in his career.

During the interview, Robert Downey Jr shared his rationale for choosing two unexpected films as his most significant works in the last 25 years. He revealed that The Shaggy Dog holds great importance to him because it was the film that convinced Disney to insure him. Additionally, he cited Dolittle as another vital work, despite the significant challenges he faced during its production. The film took two and a half years to complete, and it was a massive missed opportunity, which caused immense stress for his wife, who worked tirelessly to make it marketable.

In the movie Dolittle, Robert Downey Jr plays the role of Dr. John Dolittle while Emma Thompson voices a talking parrot. The film was co-produced by Downey Jr’s wife, Susan Downey, and was produced under their production company, Team Downey, which also produced the HBO series Perry Mason. During an interview, Downey Jr mentioned how the COVID-19 pandemic led to a reset of priorities and changes in their business advisors. He also talked about his upcoming Netflix documentary called Sr, which is directed by Chris Smith and explores the relationship between him and his late father, Robert Downey Sr, who passed away at the age of 85 in 2021. Downey Jr started his acting career at the young age of five when he appeared in his father’s film, Pound.
