Robert Downey, Jr. is a recovering addict who doesn't party, drink, do drugs, or binge on cocaine anymore. He is more of a family man but, when he is filming on location that comfort disappears. So, what's Robert Downey, Jr.'s secret? It may be the fact that he ships all of the same furniture to all of his shooting locations.
Real-life Tony Stark? Robert Downey Jr. likes the feel of home, so much so that he has his same furniture shipped to any place he rents while on location for his various films.
The Avengers: Age of Ultron star, 50, recently traveled to Atlanta to film Captain America: Civil War, and he had an entire houseful of furniture shipped from L.A. to his temporary home.
“Whenever he rents a place, he has all the same furniture sent so there’s consistency from rental to rental,” a source tells Us Weekly. “It comes in big semis. He does it for a sense of comfort.”
