Robert Downey Jr. has recreated his wedding photo with his wife Susan as the happy couple celebrate 18 years together!

Robert, 58, is easily one of Hollywood's most recognizable stars as he has graced our screens for decades, with his stint as Iron Man arguably the jewel in his crown.

The actor has had a troubled past as he has battled drug addiction, but in the last couple of decades, he has advocated for people pulling through hard times and getting a second chance.

This is shown in his marriage with 49-year-old Susan Downey, and the pair have posted a heartwarming image to celebrate 18 years since they tied the knot.

The original photograph, taken on their wedding day, showcased Susan, a prominent film producer, in an elegant white dress and a delicate veil, clutching a bouquet of white and lavender flowers.

In their reimagined anniversary snapshot, the couple revisited that cherished moment. Robert sported a vibrant yellow shirt this time while Susan held a bouquet of radiant sunflowers.

In the Instagram post, Robert expressed his affectionate sentiments, captioning the images: "18 years, love still in bloom!!"

This isn't the first time the actor has utilized social media to celebrate his deep affection for his wife. Earlier this year, on Valentine's Day, Robert shared a series of candid snapshots that captured the couple's playful and intimate moments.

Susan grinned widely while seated in front of Robert, who playfully contorted his face behind her. The post received an outpouring of love from Robert's devoted following of over 57 million fans, amassing more than four million likes.

Susan Downey's influence on Robert Downey Jr.'s life has been transformative. Having met on the set of the 2003 film Gothika, Susan played an instrumental role in helping her husband overcome his struggles with addiction and personal challenges.

However, Susan remains modest about her impact. In a candid interview with The Hollywood Reporter in December 2022, she shared her perspective on the path to recovery.

"Dealing with addiction," Susan explained, "is a deeply personal journey." She emphasized that true transformation comes from within and that external support can only provide an alternative perspective. "It's entirely that person," she affirmed.

Earlier this year, the actor shared a rare video of his of his three sons to celebrate his 58th birthday. The footage provided a montage, offering glimpses of the highlights from his past year.

The highlight reel was not only a celebration of the actor's personal milestones but also a testament to his role as a father.

Among the moments shared were glimpses of his children, including Indio, his 29-year-old son from his first marriage to Deborah Falconer.

Additionally, the video featured heartwarming clips of his younger children - 11-year-old son Exton and eight-year-old daughter Avri - both born from his current marriage to Susan.

The video kicked off with a scene of the actor wearing a beaming smile as his family serenaded him with a rendition of Happy Birthday. Indio took center stage, presenting his father with a cake adorned with two tiers of candles.

We hope Robert and Susan had a great day celebrating their anniversary!
