You won't be able to cozy up in bed with Robert Downey Jr.'s memoir this year.

The Iron Man star has halted plans to release a self-penned memoir, the Associated Press reports.

Described as an in-depth look at "the highs and lows of the actor's life and career" -- which has been plagued by drug busts and jail terms -- the book was due out this year, but Robert has put it on the backburner and returned his advance to publisher HarperCollins.

The 43-year-old star's rep confirmed the postponement, but declined to clarify the reason.

Perhaps Robert couldn't fit writing into his busy schedule. The Oscar nominee is experiencing a career renaissance of sorts this year, headlining the year's biggest movie so far, Iron Man, and August's highly anticipated Tropic Thunder, in which he plays a black man.

Two weeks ago, the star signed on to play Detective Sherlock Holmes in a Guy Ritchie-helmed flick, which will start production in October.
