RDJ Dresses Up as a Piñata & Gets Beat by Children in Hysterical Video

Robert Downey Jr. dressed as a piñata for his daughter's seventh birthday party and shared a hilarious video of the event. The two-time Oscar nominee began his career at the age of 5, first coming to prominence as a young adult in films like Weird Science and Back to School. His early career brought him through many highs and lows including his turn as Charlie Chaplin in the 1992 movie Chaplin and a doomed one-season stint on SNL.

Although his career began to backslide due to his drug addiction at the time, Downey Jr. has been sober since 2003. He began to resurrect his career with films like 2005's Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and 2006's A Scanner Darkly. Before long, he found himself at the center of a fan firestorm when he starred as Tony Stark in 2008's Iron Man, the film that launched the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Downey Jr. has been credited by many as playing an integral role in the franchise's success.

On his Instagram, Downey Jr. posted two videos from his daughter Avri's birthday party. The first video shows Downey Jr. dressed as a piñata and allowing a horde of children to hit him with sticks. The second video shows him lying on the ground, defeated. Downey Jr.'s Avengers co-star Jeremy Renner commented on the post, saying "Happy birthday Avri." Check out both videos below:

Although Robert Downey Jr. went on to star as Iron Man in eight more Marvel films, he has since stepped down from the role. Tony Stark's story came to its heroic conclusion in Avengers: Endgame when he sacrificed himself to save the world. Since then, Downey Jr. took on the title role in Dolittle, also serving as executive producer. He's also circling Christopher Nolan's next film, Oppenheimer. Despite these projects, it's likely stepping away from Marvel's intense schedule has allowed Downey Jr. to spend more time with his family in between shooting.

Of course, dressing up as a piñata may remind the actor of some of the more challenging stunt scenes he's had to perform in the Marvel movies. Either way, it's an adorable post that shows how willing Downey Jr. is to engage with kids and have fun. It's unclear how this system was meant to deliver candy to the children, but they certainly seemed to be enjoying themselves, proving Robert Downey Jr. still has the showman instincts that allowed him to rise to the Hollywood A-list.
