Robert Downey Jr. talks about his son, Indio and 'preparing him for life'
My son is gifted and artistic and has a great sense of humor, yet he’s a very contemplative guy. That’s good. I don’t want him to be in a hurry to find out who he is. I’m a guy who was in such a hurry that I missed the train four or five times. I didn’t understand the importance of the crossroads I found myself at. As a dad, I think that my job is to do the right thing – to prepare him for what is coming in his life.
The new Iron Man went on to explain:
Iused to be so convinced that happiness was the goal, yet all thoseyears I was chasing after it, I was unhappy in the pursuit. Maybe thegoal really should be a life that values honor, duty, good work,friends and family.
Indio’s mother is model Deborah Falconer.
