  Summary  

Susan Nicole Downey (née Levin; born November 6, 1973) is an American film producer. Until February 2009 she was Co-President of Dark Castle Entertainment and Executive Vice President of Production at Silver Pictures, Joel Silver's production company, but has since stepped down to work more closely with her husband, actor Robert Downey, Jr. The couple have formed their own production house entitled "Team Downey".

  Biography  

 early life
Susan Levin was born in Schaumburg, Illinois to a Jewish family, where she graduated valedictorian from Schaumburg High School in 1991. Interested in pursuing a career in film production, Levin moved to California and graduated from the University of Southern California School of Cinema/Television. She began her career at New Line Cinema, where she did uncredited production work on Mortal Kombat in 1995 and its 1997 sequel, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, and spearheaded the development of the 1998 live action TV prequel, Mortal Kombat: Conquest.

 personal life
Levin's first full-credit producer job was for the 2003 thriller Gothika, starring Halle Berry and Levin's future husband, actor Robert Downey, Jr. Downey — who was in the process of divorcing his first wife Deborah Falconer — has said that his most memorable recollection about shooting Gothika was "romancing the producer"; Levin admitted to James Lipton on Inside the Actors Studio that while she thought Downey was "an amazing actor that we were lucky to have in our movie", her first impression of him was that he was "weird". The two quietly struck up a romance — though she turned down his romantic advances twice for fear that their relationship would not last through the completion of shooting because "he's an actor; I have a real job" — and Downey proposed to Levin the night before her thirtieth birthday. The couple went public with their relationship in 2003, and were married on August 27, 2005 in a Jewish ceremony at Amagansett, New York.

Downey credits his wife with helping him kick his drug and alcohol habits. "The old saying is true — behind every good man there's an incredible woman. I owe a huge amount — if not all — of my success to Susan. We make a great team, and all that luck I spoke about, that's Susan." Sherlock Holmes director Guy Ritchie describes the couple as "the greatest illustration of a symbiotic marriage that I've ever seen. It's a real yin and yang, and it's made him a joy to work with. Robert would be a pain in the ass if he didn't have Susan to police him."
One of his biceps reads "Suzie Q" in an inky tribute to her.

The couple are expecting their first child, a boy, in February 2012.
