Robert Downey Jr. reflects on troubled relationship with father in new Netflix documentary

The documentary, filmed over the last three years of his father’s life, sheds new light on the actor who told a judge in 1999 he'd been hooked on drugs since the age of eight because his father gave them to him. According to Mail Online, Robert admitted his addiction to cocaine and heroin was "like I have a shotgun in my mouth, and I’ve got my finger on the trigger, and I like the taste of the gun metal". Robert's dad, Downey Sr., died of Parkinson's disease in July 2021, at the age of 85.
