Robert Downey Jr. Accused Kirk Douglas of Rape?

Before everyone starts shaking their jowls, refer to this post in which a few people think Robert Downey Jr. is one of four people using the anonymous account “Himmmm” to reveal blind items. Note that the person commenting could very well be a random person who knows the ins and outs of Hollywood pretty well.

In either case, we’ll never know because Himmmm signed off forever the other day in a blind item thread about a longtime actor who slept with an underage teen. But not before accusing Kirk Douglas of brutally raping Natalie Wood and then laughing and mocking her as she stumbled out of a hotel room years ago. To be fair, this rumor has been around forever but it was just that. A rumor. The comment has since been “removed by the author.”

[This story] concerns one of the biggest male stars ever, and one of the most beloved female stars to ever live…

One day she was invited to meet with this movie star about an upcoming major role. This man was a legend already, and was very powerful. … Thinking [s]he herself was powerful and savvy, she accepted the invite. In his hotel room. She never saw it coming.

Without even discussing the film, this actor — drunk already — began making a pass at her. She politely declined, and excused herself. He wouldn’t have it. He literally threw her down, slapped the hell out of her, and ripped her clothes off. He shouted obscenities at her, continually punched and held her arms so tight he left scars and bruises.

He raped her repeatedly, spitting on her, and did permanent damage to her body. She was bleeding everywhere, with a battered face. She passed out. When she came to, the actor was still in the room gloating, and told her to come see him tomorrow night and he might give her the role. He laughed at her as she fell down, her legs so wobbly and weak. She gathered her torn clothes, and tried to walk out of the hotel and to her car – blood and semen running down her legs and bruises already forming on her face.

She could barely make it back home in her car. She wanted to kill herself, so ashamed of what happened. The damage to her psyche was permanent, and haunted her forever.

…Her mom said she must have made the actor mad and offended him. They called a doctor, who took her to the hospital secretly to have her treated… The studio knew, and did nothing. After all, the star actor was a money machine. … She grew into an amazing woman with a legendary career. But she never forgot, or forgave, and never got over what happened.

She never named the star actor publicly, but her friends and family knew the truth. Even after marriage and kids, if she saw this actor anywhere – she would almost convulse and cry. And worst of all, Hollywood and the world continued to honor him, pay him, and treat him like a king.

Today, he’s still alive and barely holding on. But those who know the truth are still hoping and praying he will rot in hell for eternity. That all his good deeds and donations will never mask the truth…

So when the time comes, and the now 95-year -ld Kirk Douglas, the superstar actor, finally dies, there will be tributes and honors about him. Just remember that he is a monster who never repented, apologized, nor showed any sorrow for destroying the lives of others. Especially the life of that young beloved actress named Natalie Wood.

Himmmm then strongly implies he’s Robert Downey Jr. That or the anonymous commenter saw the story linking him with RDJ and just ran with it. He even provided the phone number of Wood’s daughter as proof. Granted, the number could be found in a few searches online.

I worked with Natalie’s daughter on a film in the late 90s. Like her mother, Natasha is an amazing woman and amazing actress who is a great person in every way.

I know a lot of you have speculated that I’m some nobody nut-case pretending to be someone else. Pretending to be a movie star when in fact I’m not. I think that’s kind of hilarious. But if you want to call Natasha and ask her the name of the male actor she co-starred with in a movie with Heather Graham, then go for it. Call her at home if you want to but be polite. Her number is: ac 310 Four [last six digits redacted]. And remember, she’s NOT in on this so don’t blame or interrogate her.

Gawker notes that RDJ was in Two Girls and a Guy with Natasha Gregson Wagner and Heather Graham so theoretically it could be possible that the two got close and Wagner vented to him about what happened.

Anyway, this all makes for a good story I guess. Not like these accusations haven’t been around for ages and not like they haven’t been published at one point before. Too bad we’ll never know the true identity of Himmmm though. Unless Redditors get their hands on this. In which case, it’ll take about 10 minutes before we find out who this guy is.

I think the story of Kirk Douglas being a raging, violent rapist is true. The story in various forms has been out there for years, Hmmm, just confirmed and gave more details, it sounds like it came from a person who might have told Hmmm the story gotten first hand. Now I don’t know if the story teller is RDJ but it could very well be someone in that circle of friends, and it is a shared account.

Why bring this up now? She is dead, he is on his way out. It’s sick. This rumer has been around for years, i’m sure the families are aware of it, if it really happened. There are several pics of Wood and K Douglas post this so called incident so to say she never spoke to him is a lie. Would you take pics with a person who raped you?

You’re an idiot. Why bring this up now? Because it’s illegal! Should he get away with it? Any who, she wouldn’t have a choice to take pictures. Movie studios owned these people, just like she didn’t tell the police–she took pictures.

The pics were taken at events. She was a consumate professional, and seeing as Hollywood circles are small, she probably ran into him all the time. She kept quiet about the rape, so unlikely she would have made a big scene in front of a lot of people.

It is no different than what is going on with Cosby. Why now when it could have been at a time where it would have made a difference?

There are rumors you quickly say “get the fk outta here” on and ones that have that creepy ring of truth, everyone knows kennedy used to stick monroe and though its not too admitted by either, its believed, I’ve heard that Kirk Douglas is a power hungry prick esp. In those days, but there are some things you’ll never know, but still, has that creepy ring of truth.

JFK and Monroe were of age. This incident supposably happened when Wood was 16 or 17. Additionally at the same age Wood was having an affair with 40 + year old Nick Ray director of Rebel Without A Cause and also Frank Sinatra. I don’t believe KD beat her up, if it did happen maybe it was a little to rough for her liking, or maybe she was doing what she had to do to get the role. If KD did it then sure enough he did it more than once are there any other rumors of any young actresses looking to… Read more »

Funny how if women are promiscuous, their rapes are acceptable. Apparently she had to go to the doctor for medical aid afterwards, so I doubt it was “a little rough for her liking”. Typical dumb guy response.

Just one word for the one who invented this story : IDIOT ! Impossible that Mr. Douglas ever would do such a thing.

Well said. This is a full on troll article from a bored, probably now unemployed ‘journalist’. Not enough hits on a website? Make s**t up.

Robert Downery Jr wasn’t the only male in that movie…could have been Angel David who became friends with Natasha.

The Douglas family have an obsession with sex it runs in the family Michael had to undergo sex addiction therapy so its no surprise. Then again Hollywood stars were so adamant for roles they would put up with anything to get a part
.Hollywood is such an evil sick community.
