Robert Downey Jr. signs the racing suit of superhero character Tony Stark, who is played by Downey, from “Iron Man 2” at a celebration in his honor at a Malibu home March 25.

Malibu actor Robert Downey Jr. was honored with the “Robert Graham Visionary Award” at an event hosted by Yo San University of Traditional Chinese Medicine at the home of local Lilly Tartikoff last month.

The university was created by brothers Dr. Mao Shing Ni and Dr. Daoshing Ni, and was inspired by their father’s teachings. They train acupuncturists in Los Angeles and provide free services to a local children’s hospital.
