Downey, Jr. glad he wasn’t super rich earlier

The Iron Man star has turned his life around following a series of drug-related arrests and rehab stints but admits his bad reputation in Hollywood saved him from becoming a spendthrift multi-millionaire.

He tells Playboy magazine, “If I’d busted all the right moves, gotten on Antabuse (used to treat chronic addiction) or something, and done the stuff I’m doing now back then, I guarantee you I’d have a hangar filled with vintage this and that and maybe even a bronze of myself… a real squander-fest.”

But maturity has made the actor spend more wisely: “Now a splurge to me is getting a bunch of T-shirts or sneakers. And I still look at the prices because I think everything is ridiculous.”
