Geraldine Chaplin’s thoughts on Robert Downey Jr.
“I have to tell you: I had never, ever dreamed that anybody could convince me that they were Daddy. But that young man was Daddy. I don’t think that any actor could do what Robert did. It was as if my father came down from Heaven and inhabited him and possessed him for the length of the movie. He is so gorgeous, which is appropriate because my father was a beautiful man too. He’s heartbreaking and he has my father’s sense of melancholy. The first time I met him as the Little Tramp I hugged him and he hugged me, and there I was with my father as a young man in my arms.” - Geraldine Chaplin on Robert Downey Jr as her father Charlie Chaplin
