Robert Downey Jr. On Finally Reuniting With Ex Sarah Jessica Parker

Robert Downey Jr. had said he wanted to reconnect with ex Sarah Jessica Parker and the actor finally got his wish during his recent visit to New York city.

Robert Downey Jr. and Sarah Jessica Parker broke up in 1991 after seven years together due to the actor's addiction.

"You know how life goes and so many things happen, particularly when you're looking at the back nine and you're not a kid anymore," Downey told Howard Stern.

"You go, 'You know, this trip to New York, as opposed to just doing what's required of me, I actually want to take care of some personal business. I wanna check in with someone I shared a big part of my life with and say hi.'"

"Private stuff aside, we were able to spend some time together and it was really cool. I went over to her place and then we went down the street... some tapas place on the corner with a friend of hers."

"You know, the funny thing too, is you always have a perception of somebody that you spent a big chunk of your life with and I think it's typical to the human thing that the further you get away from that in your new relationship, you taint your perception of the person."

"Seeing her, I was like, 'She's so great and so cool and so funny and so in-command.' I got to meet her kids and I saw the way she and Matthew Broderick lived and I respect both of them so much. You have fresh eyes and you're actually willing to go to a deeper level of acceptance and kind of just make peace with the way life is."

"Anytime I was in a relationship, I thought, 'You're gonna bury me next to this woman.' It's not that simple and God has other plans. I said everything I wanted to say," he explained.

"It's a little bit stilted but then there's this familiarity that overtakes it and you realize you're just in the presence of this fully mature mother and woman and artist and human being. There's enough good will left over, you didn't burn that bridge."

A few years ago, Downey said he took full responsibility for the breakup.

"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," he told Parade magazine. "he provided me a home and understanding. She tried to help me. She was so miffed when I didn't get my act together."
