Robert Downey Jr. just joined fellow Californians Charles Shulz and Bruce Lee in a very exclusive club.

The Iron Man star, the Peanuts creator and the Kung Fu icon were all inducted into the California Hall of Fame by Governor Brown in Sacramento on Wednesday.

“Had the honor of being one of a number inducted into the CA Hall of Fame yesterday by Gov Brown. Thrilled to be in any group that includes Bruce Lee and Peanuts creator Charles M Shulz. #goodcompany #CAProud,” Downey Jr., TK, wrote on Instagram.

The actor posted a picture of himself accepting the award wearing a dark blue suit, grey sneakers and a pair of red framed glasses. He was joined at the ceremony by his wife, Susan.

Although Downey Jr. was born in New York City, he went to high school in Los Angeles before dropping out to pursue acting. The ceremony was established in 2006 by Maria Shriver “to honor legendary people who embody California s innovative spirit and have made their mark on history,” according to the Hall of Fame’s website.

Lester Holt, the new anchor of NBC s Nightly News, Ellen Ochoa, first Latina astronaut in space, country star Buck Owens and Olympic figure skater Kristi Yamaguchi were also on the list of inductees.
