During his visit, Robert opened up about his past relationship with ex-girlfriend Sarah Jessica Parker.

“I’ve never been the kind of person to acknowledge what’s going on with me at the time, and I’d try to make light of it, but sure, when you’re with someone for seven years, 18 to our mid-20s, it’s kind of a big deal,” Robert revealed (via US Weekly). “I’ll make a point of trying to see her while I’m here. I’d like to, I’ll ask his permission. I just want to check in for a few minutes. I love Matthew Broderick.”

FYI: Robert is wearing an ASOS bomber jacket + t-shirt at the screening. He is wearing an Etro suit and a Junk Food x Keith Haring t-shirt at the radio stop.

    He’s going to ask her HUSBAND if it would be okay for him to talk to her? Wow, wait until the left wing feminists hear this. Downey may be forced to withdraw from any future movies over this.

    @sillyme: Anyone who straight out attacks feminists for no apparent reason are clearly a. mysoginistic b. ignorant

    Downey and SJP were each other’s first loves, that type of love lingers until the end. It’s a nice gesture to ask the husband’s permission first.

    I agree. A relationship that lasted that long when they were that young is significant. Still, it’s a nicer gesture to ask SJP and let her approach her husband first.
