Robert Downey Jr.: Gossip site contributor?
Basically, it's about the possibility that Robert Downey Jr. spends his free time commenting and posting on the blind item goldmine site that is Crazy Days and Nights.
Using the handle Himmmm, the maybe-RDJ poster wrote, "Here's the Himmmm deal: Many years ago this account was started by 4 guys who were all pals and worked together DEEP inside the biz. Two were famous (rock star and movie star) and the other two were true creative geniuses. Over the years, 3 of them posted on this one account on CDAN. Think of it like Menudo (but without gay Latinos). In a way, we were all Himmmm. Kind of like V in V for Vendetta. The poor bastard (lol) getting all the heat who was supposedly outed as "him" took the heat to protect ME and my career/privacy. He used to work with me, and his family is part of the biz too. He's an amazing writer, producer, director and musician. He's the pal who got me hooked on Blinds because his family goes back DEEP into old, old Hwood. As in the OLDEST Hwood ever. He's from back East/South, and could explode your brain with the stuff HE knows about real HWood. Pretty much nobody but me has posted here in the last year (except my CTO who was HimJacker and my wife as Herrrr). Otherwise, it's me. I don't have time to do this all day every day, but try to chime in when I can. It's the only vice I can get away with :-) ... Anyway, people can speculate all they want. That's their right. I will never come out and say my name, and I'll retire this hobby first. Some on CDAN know who I am, and I thank them for their secret-keeping. I am NOT any better or more special than ANY of you (Maja, BigMama, Reno, RocketQ, etc.). I do this for fun, and occasionally to try and right some wrongs (even my own). I don't use an anon name because it's false info I share...I have to be anon because it is TRUE!
The collective hive mind concluded that it had to be RDJ and a long post on Jezebel, which you could read if you want specifics on the blind items in question, explains why and goes through some of the pretty horrific blind items Himmmm has set the record straight on (or not, if you don't believe he's real).
Jezebel also cites this older post by Himmmm as proof that he's RDJ: "I have no issue with ANYTHING people voluntarily do in their private life as long as it is consenting - (kids and animals cannot consent!), and NOT hurting another mentally or physically. I'm no saint, especially in my youth but am close these days-lol. And all I'll say about another old topic? I am NOT a cross-dresser! My wife happens to collect vintage clothing and it's tough to surprise her when you share a home and office. But I admit I DO look good in pumps and a dress,:-)"
Now, late last night, Gawker posted a follow-up to Jezebel's story, in which Himmmm talks about a 50-year-old violent rape allegedly committed by one of the biggest movie stars ever against another movie star. You could read that story too.
I'm not sure what to think. On one hand RDJ seems like the mischievous type, who'd be into spilling dirty secrets under the guise of anonymity. On the other hand, I just can't see Iron Man using emoticons.
