You work with people who try to take care of themselves, and then there’s people who take care of everybody else, and Downey’s one of those guys who literally comes around and he’s taking care of everybody else, cast, crew—’How you doing?’ ‘What do you need?’
[Robert]’s selfless and he’s just a pleasure to be around and it’s fascinating to watch him work. Because through his selflessness, he also finds all these great nuggets. He’s a team player and you rise and sink by the people you surround yourself with.
