I even knew people that watched Ally McBeal religously just because RDJ had a role for a season or two. In fact I remember back in 2008 a lot of my friends had zero interest in IM but watched the movie nevertheless just because of Downey

well then your friends must have been huge Chaplin fans or something, you know strange people.
The only thing I ever heard about Downey from about 1994-2007 was "[celebrity with a drug problem]'s heading down the Robert Downey Junior path". He was a running joke about drug abuse and alcoholism for years. He didn't become a draw again until IM.

Downey was a prolific name pre-Iron Man, but he was not a huge star nor was he a big box office draw.

He is definitely a big star and a A-lister now. But for a stretch of about 10 years he was more of a punchline and infamous for his drug problems and arrests.

He's probably the biggest box office star on the planet right now.
