When I accepted the part, they didn't tell me that I also had to do the acrobatic stuff of Charlie. That has cost me a lot of blood, sweat and tears.

Robert Downey, Jr.

I never accepted the idea that I was all through. I guess no person who has once been a star can do that, ever.
Someday perhaps change will occur when times are ready for it instead of always when it is too late. Someday change will be accepted as life itself.
