Robert Downey Jr catches up with Parker
Iron Man star Robert Downey Jr has revealed that he recently had a friendly reunion with his former
girlfriend Sarah Jessica Parker.
The pair split up in 1991 after seven years together.
Downey Jr, 50 discussed about the meeting in New York during a radio interview, reported Us magazine.
While visiting the Big Apple, Downey Jr caught up with the Emmy winner, who was happy to meet up with her ex-boyfriend to talk.
The actor had earlier taken the responsibility for the break-up.
“I liked to drink, and I had a drug problem, and that didn’t jibe with Sarah Jessica, because it is the furthest thing from what she is.
“She provided me a home and understanding. She tried to help me. She was so miffed when I didn’t get my act together.”
Both stars found love after they parted ways. Parker married Matthew Broderick in 1997, and the couple welcomed three children: son James, 12, and twins Marion and Tabitha, 5.
Downey Jr was able to get sober in the early 2000s after completing a stint in jail, and was married twice. First to actress and musician Deborah Falconer, from whom he split in the early 2000s, and next to current wife Susan Downey, whom he wed in 2005.
He has three children from the two marriages: son Indio, 21, son Exton, 3, and daughter Avri, 5 months.
Downey Jr’s latest film The Avengers :Age of Ultron has recently hit the screens. It also features Chris Hemsworth, Scarlett Johansson, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner and others.
