Robert Downey Jr. Writes a Lovely Obituary for His Mother

This past week, Robert Downey Jr.’s mother Elsie passed away following complications from a heart attack earlier this year. She was 80 years old. He wrote an obituary for her that covers the highs, the lows, and everything in between about her life and his and posted it on his facebook page. You can read it here.

It seems that there was a lot of his mother in Downey, and he draws parallels between her struggle with addiction and his own, as well as their shared acting ambitions. It’s a wonderful look at a family that did not have an easy road of it, but which came together in the last few years to support and love one another, healthily and happily.

Rest in peace, Mrs.Downey.
