Robert Downey Jr - Robert Downey Jr. Stressing Over Turning 50

Robert Downey Jr. is starting to "stress" about turning 50.

The 46-year-old actor - whose wife Susan is expecting their first child together - says he is enjoying everything about his life at the moment but admits the thought of reaching his half-century is not an appealing one.

The 'Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows' star - who also has an 18-year-old son Indio, from his previous marriage to Deborah Falconer - said: "It's funny. I used to say that I'd welcome a bullet to the forehead if I ever ended up as a 40-something, remarried, marketable, big-action movie dad living in a cosy cul-de-sac in suburban LA. Now I am that guy.

"It just goes to show that I usually don't know what's good for me in life. But I'm getting better at knowing that stuff. I don't need to rub against the grain nearly as much as I used to. I'm 46 now, so the countdown to my half-century has begun. I'd have to be completely deranged not to stress about that."

However, Robert says he has no intention of slowing down as he wants to live life to the fullest.

He told Live! magazine: "Life is good. With a new baby on the way, maybe I ought to think about slowing down a little. But I can't see that happening in the short term."
