Robert Downey Jr. Scores Laughs at Globes

Robert Downey Jr. is no stranger to making news, and his joke last night while presenting at the annual Golden Globes was one of few that didn't need to be censored before being broadcast to America's viewers.

Before announcing the Best Actress nominees: "I don't know if an actress can do her best work until I've slept with her."

About Robert Downey Jr. (Source: Wikipedia)

Robert John Downey, Jr. (born April 4, 1965) is an American actor. Downey made his screen debut in 1970, at the age of five, when he appeared in his father's film Pound, and has worked consistently in film and television ever since. During the 1980s he had roles in a series of coming of age films associated with the Brat Pack. Less Than Zero (1987) is particularly notable, not only because it was the first time Downey's acting would be acknowledged by critics, but also because the role pushed Downey's already existing drug habit one step further. After Zero, Downey started landing roles in bigger films such as Air America (1990), Soapdish (1991) and Natural Born Killers (1994). These higher-profile roles eventually led to his being cast as Charlie Chaplin in the 1992 film Chaplin, for which he received an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor.
