June 10, 2008: "Burger King Helped Robert Downey Jr."
Robert Downey Jr. has publicly thanked Burger King for helping him overcome his problems with addiction. The fast food chain, Robert Downey Jr. says, also helped to resurrect his career.
The fast food epiphany happened in 2003 when the "Iron Man" star was driving a car piled with "tons of f---ing dope," Robert Downey Jr. told Britain's Empire magazine. Robert Downey Jr. decided to pull over for a burger and everything changed.
"I have to thank Burger King," he said. "It was such a disgusting burger I ordered. I had that, and this big soda, and I thought something really bad was going to happen." Robert Downey Jr. says he then tossed all of his drugs into the ocean, deciding right then and there to clean up his act.
Robert Downey Jr. hints that a fateful moment in "Iron Man," when his character Tony Stark requests a cheeseburger from Burger King after being released from his captors, is a reference to his own experiences.
