Burger King Saved Robert Downey Jr.’s Life

June 9, 2008 / Posted by:

In 2003, Robert Downey Jr. was driving down PCH in California with a ton of “fucking dope” in the car when he suddenly decided to stop at Burger King for a meal. He said eating one of their burgers made him turn his life around.

He said, I have to thank Burger King. 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.”

He immediately dumped all his drugs into the ocean and decided to clean up his act. Somewhere in the Pacific Ocean, there’s a bunch of cracked out sea creatures looking for their next fix.

Robert said he used the experience for a scene in “Iron Man” when his character asks for a burger after escaping the terrorists.

Something bad usually does happen after eating Burger King. Just ask my bowels.
