Not that Robert Downey Jr. hasn’t had an exciting, action-packed, and substance-filled life thus far, but the man is only 43 and could likely stand to crank out a few more major Hollywood blockbusters (ie. Iron Man sequels) before settling down to pen his “candid look at the highs and lows of his life and career”.
The “Iron Man” will not be wielding a pen: Robert Downey Jr. has postponed plans to write a memoir and has returned his advance to publisher HarperCollins, a spokeswoman for the actor told The Associated Press.
Britney Ross of Rogers & Cowan declined to say Tuesday why Downey wouldn’t be writing the book, originally scheduled to come out this year. HarperCollins had billed it as a “candid look at the highs and lows of his life and career” when the publisher announced the project two years ago.
