Susan Downey revealed to another publication, PEOPLE, here, that she and her husband, Robert Downey Jr., seemingly adhere to a strict two-week rule, ensuring the family remains together and allegedly doesn’t go more than 14 days without seeing each other.

Despite feeling like a long duration at times, they prioritize being together, especially since Robert’s acting career often takes him to distant locations. Susan emphasizes the unpredictability of their lives, acknowledging that unexpected events can disrupt their plans, but they remain flexible and adaptable.
