Robert Downey, Jr. and his wife welcomed a new baby girl this week, and, well, it gives me an excuse to celebrate one of my favorite actors. Incidentally, RDJ is also one of the five people on the planet that I would legitimately fangirl over–swooning, high-pitched screaming, the whole nine yards.

So here are my top 5 RDJ films. Well, excluding Iron Man or any of the MCU franchise. Why? Well, because RDJ is Tony Stark, and that’s just an obvious choice, isn’t it? If you don’t love RDJ as Tony Stark, well…

Soapdish (1991)

This was my first RDJ film, and gosh, how I loved the skeezy David Seton Barnes. The film is a delightful spoof on daytime dramas (aka soap operas), and RDJ plays the producer of The Sun Also Sets, a fictional drama with an “aging” lead actress who doesn’t want to give up her time in the spotlight. As a recovered addict of Days of Our LivesSoapdish (and RDJ) appeared at a very appropriate time in my life, and really, RDJ in glasses. I was done for.
