This is what it's like to be Robert Downey Jr.

Earlier this year, Forbes crowned Robert Downey Jr. the highest-paid actor in Hollywood, earning an estimated $75 million because of a back-end deal on Iron Man 3. His upcoming turn in Avengers: Age of Ultron will likely net him even more. But all that fame and fortune comes with a price: the inability to go anywhere without hundreds of people screaming at you.

Downey Jr. recently shared a video that offers a glimpse at a day in the life of a movie star. As he arrives in South Korea, he's greeted by dozens flashbulbs and hundreds of screaming fans. The cheering gets even louder when he takes out a Sharpie and walks to the crowd barrier to sign a few autographs.

"Sometimes I wonder if people really like me. And then I go to South Korea..." tweeted Downey Jr. Consider that question answered.
