    Robert Downey Jr. finds salvation with Burger King

    Robert Downey, Jr. has publicly thanked fast food chain Burger King for helping him overcome his personal problems and resurrect his film career.

    In 2003, the actor - who, at the time, was battling an addiction to drugs and alcohol - was driving a car filled with "tons of f**king dope" on California's Pacific Coast Highway when he decided to stop at the burger joint for a meal.

    And the trip to the fastfood outlet caused him to re-evaluate his whole life.

    According to Britain's Empire magazine, Downey Jr. proceeded to throw all his drugs into the ocean, resolving to clean up his act then and there.

    I have to thank Burger King. It was such a disgusting burger I ordered.
    I'm sure Burger King really appreciates this quote.

    Re: Robert Downey Jr. finds salvation with Burger King

    The actor goes on to hint that a fateful moment in new movie 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.
    That explains the BK product placement in Iron Man.

    Downey Jr. needs to be careful with the kind of people he's dealing with...

    Re: Robert Downey Jr. finds salvation with Burger King

    Just read today that the studio execs are considering dropping John Favreau from directing the Iron Man sequels. Side note.

    Im glad Downey cleaned up his act. He is a great actor and it would have been such a waste to have him die from that.
