Robert Downey Jr opened up about being 'serial masturbator' who rode 'penis for all it was worth'

Robert Downey Jr opened up about being 'serial masturbator' who rode 'penis for all it was worth'

The Hollywood star opened up about his X-rated antics

While the majority of celebrities prefer to keep the ins and outs of their sex life personal, Robert Downey Jr is owning his X-rated antics.

The acting mega-star admitted that during one stage of his illustrious on-screen career, he became rather dependant on the physical act of self-gratification.

The startling sexual revelation comes just months after the Ironman star was dubbed the most 'unpredictably brilliant' actor that his Oppenheimer co-star Cillian Murphy ever worked with.

The Peaky Blinders frontman told GQ following the historical blockbuster's release that although they didn't get the chance to hang up together much on set, he was always left blown away by RDJ's performances.

"A lot of the scenes I have with Downey, it was quite loose and quite improvisational," Murphy gushed.

"I mean, acting with him was just extraordinary. He's just electrifying, the most available engaged, present, unpredictably brilliant actor I've ever worked with.

Downey Jr had just as much praise for his on-screen counterpart, saying: "I have never witnessed a greater sacrifice by a lead actor in my career.

"He knew it was going to be a behemoth ask when Chris called him."

RDJ went on to tell People: "But I think he also had the humility that is required to survive playing a role like this.




"We’d be like, ‘Hey, we got a three-day weekend. Maybe we’ll go antiquing in Santa Fe. What are you going to do?’ ‘Oh, I have to learn 30,000 words of Dutch. Have a nice time'. But that’s the nature of the ask."

Aww. We love a bromance.

Anyway, going back to why you're all reading this article: Downey Jr's masturbation routine...

Speaking to the Sunday Times back in 2008, the Marvel legend confessed that he was quite 'compulsive, serial masturbator' back in the day.

"But it was the best thing I could have been," he said. "I utilised that organ and rode it for everything it was worth."

The eyebrow-raising admission came just three years after Downey Jr tied the knot with his wife Susan, with whom he has since welcomed daughter Avri and son Exton.

Despite being happily married to his wife for almost two decades, Downey Jr has received several bad reviews from his co-stars for his smooching skills.

Speaking to People in 2010, he revealed that his Marvel co-star Gwyneth Paltrow was less than impressed with their on-screen kiss.

"She said I didn’t know what I was doing, like, 'It didn’t feel good'," he told the publication.

Well, you can't win them all, Robbie!
