Robert Downey Jr. has come long way in his career before landing at the top as a superhero in “Iron Man 3″. Fairytales are uncommon in Hollywood and it makes for interesting news when there’s a tragedy, but one thing is true in films: all bets are off until the final scene. Downey is a gifted actor who went astray, cheated death a few times before cleaning up and, in short, he has gone on to completely take over Hollywood. Downey’s career has involved more zig-zags than most, but his failure to give up is what makes his journey inspiring.

Do you find people who never give up inspirational?
