Robert Downey Jr. Reveals Why He Was Arrested at Disneyland

Robert Downey Jr. Reveals Why He Was Arrested at Disneyland

Robert Downey Jr. was not always as loved by Disney as he is now!

The 54-year-old actor was honored as a Disney Legend during Disney’s D23 Expo on Friday (August 23) at Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, Calif.

When he took to the stage to accept the award, he reminisced on the time he was arrested at Disneyland for smoking weed.

“The very first time I went to Disneyland I was transported to another place — within moments of being arrested. I was brought to a surprisingly friendly processing center, given a strict warning, and returned to, if memory serves, one very disappointed group chaperone. I’ve been sitting on that shame for a while and I‘m just going to release it here tonight,” Robert said on stage, according to EW.

He added, “I would like to make amends to whoever had to detain me for smoking pot in a gondola without a license. And I don’t wanna further confuse the issue by insinuating that pot smoking licenses for the gondola are in any way obtainable.”

Later, Robert took a more serious turn while he thanked Disney for their support.

“I’m delighted to be among such a rich and diverse group of humans, all seeking to reflect the many challenges of life through the lens of creative expression…Honestly, it’s been a great gift,” Robert said.
