Robert Downey Jr height: 5ft 8in (173 cm)
American actor best known for playing Tony Stark in the Iron Man trilogy and Avengers Assemble. He has also starred in such films as Sherlock Holmes, Chaplin and Air America. In his 40's he appears to want to look taller so has had a habit of wearing what appear to be elevator style boots and sneakers.
For his roles as Tony Stark and Sherlock he has also been photographed wearing height enhancing footwear to appear taller on screen. In fact, in a JapanTimes interview he said of this lift-wearing, "There's nothing to talk about there - lots of actors do that, both now and in the past. Tom Cruise. Or read up on John Wayne, who even had lifts in his car so he'd look taller driving. Height is one of the rules and practices of this male-enhancing business"
. Whilst people question whether actors like Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise wear lifts, Robert's a clear example of someone who is out there on the red carpet rocking his own style and not giving a damn!
