Robert Downey Jr., Actor
Many know Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but did you know he is also a Steelers fan? Unlike Michaels, Downey Jr. hasn’t been a frequent attendee at Heinz Field, but that doesn’t mean he’s not a member of Steeler Nation.
In 2020, Downey Jr. and star defensive tackle Cameron Heyward exchanged videos on social media, where they showed that they exchanged memorabilia. Heyward sent Downey Jr. a game-worn jersey, and Downey Jr. repaid the favor by sending him an autographed infinity gauntlet from Avengers Endgame.
Downey Jr. ended his video by saying “Go Steelers,” and spoke throughout about the state of the team. This interaction between two stars of their professions was a cool encounter and showed that not only is Heyward a fan of Downey’s work as Iron Man, but also that Downey Jr. is a member of Steeler Nation.
