Happy Birthday, RDJ! Robert Downey Jr. Gets Sweet Messages From 'Avengers' Co-Stars

Age 55 never looked so good for one of Hollywood's most versatile performers.

Award-winning actor Robert Downey Jr. celebrated another year in the industry, and he was met with several sweet gestures as his fellow Avengers and MCU co-stars tell the world how awesome RDJ is both on and off the screen.

Chris Evans, who plays the titular role of Captain America, proves that their friendship has always been strong. He posted a photo of him and Downey on Instagram with the caption "Happy birthday to one of my absolute favorites! Love you 3000, @RobertDowneyJr."

A "Brother, Friend and Supporter"

RDJ's on-screen wife Gwyneth Paltrow greeted the actor on his special day by sharing a photo from her wedding with husband Brad Falchuk in 2018 at her Hamptons estate.  It seems that the Goop founder was in shock while RDJ was making a speech at her wedding.

"Before we put this April 4th to bed, I just wish my dear, dear @robertdowneyjr a happy birthday. Here he is, making a toast at our wedding, during which his humor elicited my usual look of pure joy/shock whenever he is near," Paltrow wrote on Instagram.

She also described RDJ as her "brother, friend, and supporter" rolled into one. Moreover, the mother-of-two acknowledged the "Sherlock Holmes" star as the "weirdest comedy writer of all time."

The blonde beauty ended her tribute by encouraging all Marvel fans to greet him on his special day.

The 47-year-old actress and RDJ have worked together since the 2008 blockbuster film "Iron Man," where Paltrow played the role of Pepper Potts and the love interest to Downey Jr's Tony Stark/Iron Man.
