Robert Downey Jr. In GQ

These photos of Robert Downey Jr. in GQ are some of the oddest photos I have seen in a very long time. From the Hunter S. Thompson vibe to the obsession with fishnet and spitting, it all seems a bit much. I'm sure all of you will probably like them, and I guess it could convey RDJ and what he has gone through, but to me, it is just kind of weird.

Ew. I'm sorry, but these look like drunk college kid pics- not GQ. Yuck.

I agree, they pushed it too far.

I think I'm gonna hurl.

Hm well the pictures are interesting, but not exactly ground breaking. I'd much rather look at these than those awful Posh/Marc Jacobs photos.

I think we could come up with better pictures for the "Snark My Readers" - project. Just sayin'.

well, there goes my "gee, he looks like he's doing really well" comment i made when i saw the trailers for "ironman".
what IDIOT talked him into this?

Robert D. is weird so probably these pictures justify his true self.

I think they're really good actually. The spit one is a bit much, but other than that... I like 'em.

Is that his wife in those shots? I hope so. I hate it when famous married dudes pose for magazines with random skanky models instead of their wives. Don't know why, but it just bugs me.

These aren't any scarier than the ones with his sons at the BB game. He looks like Ringo Starr and that's not a good thing (sorry Ringo if you're reading).

These ARE drunk college kid pics. WTF cares about RDJ anyway? He lost me 10 years ago.

I lived in LA for a few years and once at that bookshop on the boardwalk in Venice Beach (where I lived) I found a poetry chapbook he'd written. It was beyond preverse. really.

Most interesting pictures published by GQ, y/y?

I don't think they're bad at all.. at least they didn't put him in some charcoal sharp suit like every other actor.
