The daughter of Rosie – a PTA member – and Elliot Levin, a businessman, Susan went to Schaumburg High School, from which she matriculated in 1991. Becoming interested in film, Susan enrolled at the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts, from which she graduated with summa cum laude honors.

Susan then joined Threshold Entertainment, and while there worked on such successful projects as the fantasy action films “Mortal Kombat”, and its sequel “Mortal Kombat: Annihilation”, also on the TV series “Mortal Kombat: Conquest”, so establishing her net worth.

After a few successful years at Threshold Entertainment, Susan moved forward in her career by joining Silver Pictures, owned by Joel Silver, and its horror film production department Dark Castle Entertainment. She was subsequently named as Co-President of Dark Castle Entertainment, and Executive Vice President of Production at Silver Pictures.

She started her career at Dark Castle and Silver Pictures as co-producer on the horror film “Ghost Ship” in 2002, and in 2005 served as producer on the film “House of Wax”, starring Chad Michael Murray, Paris Hilton, and Elisha Cuthbert. Her first credit as executive producer was the highly-successful comedy crime film “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang”, with her husband Robert Downey Jr., Val Kilmer and Michelle Monaghan in the lead roles. She then worked on several other successful projects, including the thriller drama film “The Brave One” (2007), starring Jodie Foster, Terrence Howard, and Naveen Andrews, while in 2009 she worked again with her husband, this time on the film “Sherlock Holmes”. Robert visited Susan at her office in Silver Pictures and found out about Guy Ritchie’s plans to direct new Sherlock Holmes film, and Susan set up a meeting for Robert and Ritchie, which resulted in Robert becoming the new Sherlock. He repeated the role in the sequel “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” (2011), and a third film is announced and scheduled for release in 2019. Since the first Sherlock Holmes film, Susan and Robert have workedg together more frequently, with Susan serving as producer of the comedy-drama film “Due Date”, starring Robert, Zach Galifianakis and Michelle Monaghan, then the Academy Award-nominated sci-fi action adventure “Iron Man 2”, and another Academy Award-nominated film, the crime drama “The Judge” (2014), adding steadily to her net worth.

The two have also formed a production company, named Team Downey, which operates under the Warner Bros banner – the first film produced by the company was the aforementioned crime drama “The Judge”. They are now working on the fantasy comedy “The Voyage of Doctor Dolittle”, scheduled for release in 2019.

When it comes to Susan’s personal life, she has been married to Robert Downey Jr. since 2005; the couple has two children together, while she is also a step-mother to Robert’s son Indio Falconer Downey, from his previous marriage to actress/singer Deborah Falconer.

#Quote
1I had no interest in really becoming an actress or doing that kind of thing... I just knew that I wanted to do something in making films.
2As a producer, you're there from the inception of the concept to the delivery of it. It just takes so much energy.
3I have no idea why, and this is others' observations of me - I tend to be in the realm of these very complicated personalities. I guess I enjoy corralling that.
4I was never a girl who thought about getting married. Being in a relationship wasn't my priority.
5I was very focused, driven, rigid, work-oriented. I didn't care about having a family or making a home. I didn't think about kids. It's not that I didn't want those things; I just didn't think about them.
6If there was no Hollywood, no next movie, no deal at Warner Brothers, no place in Malibu or Venice, I would still be really happy.
