Robert Downey Jr.: 'I was beautiful in Kiss Kiss'

Robert Downey Jr. thinks you can learn a lot about a man when you see his jewellery box.

Robert Downey Jr. thinks he looked his best in Kiss Kiss Bang Bang.

The 51-year-old actor starred in the Shane Black-directed movie over a decade ago, and got to work alongside his producer wife Susan.

When asked by GQ Style about when he thinks he was looking his best, the handsome star didn’t hesitate with his answer.

“Kiss Kiss Bang Bang. When I watch that movie, I say, ‘You were beautiful. And now… you just need to accept the fact that you're going to age as gracefully as possible’,” he said. “I think it was also just because me and the missus were in lockstep. No kids. Not married yet. We saw nothing but each other. And we had a project.

“And it's Shane Black. Who, you know, it's hard not to adore. And 35 days of night shooting. I mean, we were giddy. But I think there was something about sleeping till two o'clock in the afternoon every day, where it reminded me of when we were all beautiful young club kids. It was also very good lighting.”

For the accompanying photoshoot, Robert’s mix of quirky and dapper style has been honed in on, with the actor sporting an array of colourful pieces; from a pink Marni shirt with red floral detail to an electric blue Boss suit.

He can also be seen wearing a watch in some of the shots, and was happy to talk about his impressive collection of timepieces.

“You can learn a lot about a man if you open up his jewellery box,” he mused.

His own collection includes a $92,000 (£64,000) Jaeger-LeCoultre, a Rolex and a Bell & Ross he was given as a gift from Ben Stiller after they filmed Tropic Thunder back in 2008.
