Robert Downey Jr. Gushes Over Wife Susan in SAG Awards Speech



Robert Downey Jr. was floored to win a 2024 Screen Actors Guild Award and made sure to thank his past costars.

Downey Jr., 58, took home the Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role trophy on Saturday, February 24, for his role in Oppenheimer. As he took the stage at The Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles, he name-dropped the likes of Cillian Murphy, Emily Blunt, Gwyneth Paltrow and Jamie Foxx. He saved the best for last: Susan Downey, his wife.

“Now why have I added my wife’s name to the list of super talented [actors] that I’ve learned so much from up close over these last 40 years?” Robert noted in his speech. “It’s because, for 22 years, she has flawlessly portrayed a sane and rational individual who is happily married to an actor.”

Robert won the SAG Award for his role as Lewis Strauss in Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer. He was nominated against Sterling K. Brown, Willem Dafoe, Robert De Niro and Ryan Gosling. Robert’s win was dedicated to very special fans.
