We love Robert Downey Jr.
It was easy for an actor like Downey to take his money and walk away after the success of movies like that Avengers: Endgame but since his departure from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Downey made his Footprint Coalition a top priority. He’s really trying to make the world a better place, and it’s a Tony Stark-like journey for the actor.
“After we drove and amassed a huge collection of classic cars over the years, I was a petrolhead. And hypocrite, I formed the Footprint Coalition in 2019 to expand technologies to help mitigate climate change,” Downey said in a press release. He continued:
“Luckily, I’m a bit of a dreamer. The last 3 years have been an experience in hope as I’ve brought in the best and brightest minds to evaluate, train, upgrade and decarbonize these vehicles. It’s been a tremendous challenge and an enlightening journey. It was fun to watch, too, and for that I’m grateful to my kids, my wife and boss Susan, Team Downey, the Matador cast of Boat Rocker, and of course, Max and Warner Bros. Discovery. -thanks for your support, but ultimately affirming the many ways we can work hand in hand to create a sustainable future.”
