Actor Robert Downey Jr. married his girlfriend, Susan Levin, a movie producer he met on the set of the film “Gothika,” on Saturday, People magazine reported.

Downey, who has starred in more than 50 films including “Less Than Zero,” “Chaplin” and “Wonder Boys,” has a reputation as a talented but troubled actor.

The guest list at the wedding on Long Island, New York included actor Keanu Reeves and musicians Sting and Billy Joel, who were to perform.

Downey and Levin, 31, met in 2002 and were engaged in November 2003 when Downey presented her with an engagement ring of diamonds and a rare African sapphire, People magazine said.

Downey stars as a petty thief caught up in a Los Angeles murder investigation in the Warner Bros. comedy thriller “Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang,” set to open in mid-September.

Downey, 40, struggled with drug addiction during the 1990s and had several well publicized run-ins with the law.

For six years, the award-winning actor was in and out of prison and rehabilitation programs after police found heroin, crack and an unloaded gun in his car. In 1999, he served a year in prison for cocaine possession and was arrested twice for the same offense within months of his release.

The fallout from those incidents cut short a budding comeback for the actor, who won Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild awards for his role in the TV series “Ally McBeal.”
