The superhero rises again.
In 2003, his life took a miraculous turn, when he met and fell in love with practical and resolute woman who entirely changed the outlook of his life. She had a huge contribution in helping him out of his drug abuse and addiction.
“I would never marry you, unless you give up drugs.” She warned him.
She rejected him till he was determined to recover from the drug addiction and finally they got married on August, 2005.
Another person’s huge contribution in bringing him back on screen was Mel Gibson.
Downey was able to return to the big screen after Mel Gibson, a close friend to Downey, paid Downey’s insurance bond for the 2003 film The Singing Detective.
