小罗伯特唐尼. is explaining why he broached the subject of addiction in his new documentary about his relationship with his late father.

It’s incomplete if you don’t,” Downey Jr., 57, said Sunday at a screening of Netflix’s 锶. at Los AngelesDGA Theater Complex organized by 好莱坞报道.

I also hate puff pieces. There’s so many examples of it right now where everyone’s trying to get their narrative out there,” the actor and producer added. “I won’t give the example but there’s just so much of it that you kind of go, that just reeks of bulls—.”

During the Q&一种, Downey Jr.’s wife and producing partner Susan Downey also spoke about her husband and late father-in-law’s decisions to get sober.

If anybody has ever dealt with someone with addiction, you know it has nothing to do with someone else,” Susan said when asked about the coincidence that both men started living sober after getting into relationships, 根据 THR.

They have to be ready,” she said Sunday. “If you can be a small part of creating an alternative world for them that says, ‘嘿, I’m here. If you are clean, 伟大的。’ But there’s no credit I will ever take other than basically saying, ‘Here’s what I need to have happen,’ or more importantly, ‘What can’t be happening.But it’s entirely that person.

Downey Jr. noted that he originally did not consider whether the new documentary, which was named the year’s best by the National Board of Review, would even release when he first started filming, 根据 THR.

I didn’t even know if this thing was going to come out so I wasn’t thinking about it the way you would where you’re like, well you’d better make sure that stupid f—— beanie you’re wearing looks right on your [head],” 他告诉媒体. “I wasn’t thinking about any of this.

在纪录片中, Downey Jr. recalled becoming addicted around the time he made the 1987 电影 Less Than Zero.

It was just a wild era,” 他说. “That whole world, it gets tied into creativity. We were all altering our consciousness with substances. I was just kinda playing a game of just wanting to self-soothe or just stay loaded rather than deal with the fact that things had gone off the tracks a little bit.

“诚实地, more than anything, I look back and go, ‘It’s shocking that a single movie came out finished,’ ” 他加了, later referencing thedrug-culture life that we all got stuck in.

锶. is now streaming on 网飞.
