Robert Downey, Jr. Pardoned for His 90s Drug Arrest

Robert Downey, Jr. has been pardoned for his late 1996 crime when he was pulled over on a Los Angeles highway. Heroin, cocaine and a pistol were found in his vehicle.

The 50-year-old actor is one of 91 people to be pardoned on Thursday (December 24).

The pardon does not erase records that a conviction occurred, but rather, restores voting rights and shows the person in question has shown “exemplary behavior.”

Robert was pardoned by Governor Jerry Brown for his 1996 arrest. He spent a year in jail for his crimes.

But this movie’s the first time where you really have two points of view. It becomes a question of morality and I don’t think [Cap] has ever been so uncertain with what right and wrong is.”

Amy Schumer Ties Anal Joke to 'Charlie & the Chocolate Factory'

Amy Schumer walks the red carpet at the 2015 British Academy Britannia Awards held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on Friday (October 30) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The comedian was one of the evening’s honorees alongside Orlando Bloom, Meryl Streep, James Corden, Harrison Ford, and director Sam Mendes.

Other celebs in attendance included Robert Downey Jr., Bryan Cranston, Steve Carell, Annabelle Wallis, J.J. Abrams, and Mel B.

Amy was presented with the Charlie Chaplin Britannia Award for Excellence in Comedy. During the acceptance speech, she made a hilarious joke that started with her explaining how she thought the inspiration for the prize was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

“I’ll never forget the first time I saw him just running around that chocolate factory. When he got that golden ticket, whose heart didn’t jump out of their chest?” Amy said (via USA Today). “Watching the movie inspired my boyfriend at the time to take a trip up my chocolate river.”

After Amy paused to let the crowd laugh, she added, “You guys don’t have anal over the pond?”

“Isn’t that amazing, though? We work so hard to look so pretty tonight. I got my nails done and hair and everything… we work hard to look so pretty for men, but you guys are disgusting,” Amy continued. “One of your biggest goals is to put your penises in our buttholes: The most sensitive part of yourself, into where we [poop]. And I’m like, ‘Should I get French tips?’ No one cares.”

FYI: Amy is wearing a Calvin Klein Collection dress. Orlando is wearing Burberry. James is wearing Burberry.

Robert Downey, Jr. Talks Walking Out of That 'Avengers' Interview - Listen Here!

Robert Downey, Jr. is addressing walking out of an interview earlier this month when things got “a little Diane Sawyer.”

“I just wish I had left sooner,” the 50-year-old actor told Howard Stern today on his show. “First of all, I don’t even know the guy’s name, but I know he pulled the same garbage on [Quentin] Tarantino, and Tarantino stayed in his chair and lit him up for five minutes.”

“I’m one of the guys who is always assuming the social, kind of decorum is in play, and that we’re promoting a superhero movie — a lot of kids are going to see it — and this has nothing to do with your creepy, dark agenda,” Robert added. “I just realized, too, that I’m a 50-year-old guy, I use fancy words on ‘The Howard Stern Show,’ and yet I’m completely unevolved when it comes down to simple boundaries. Like, ‘You know what? You’re weirding me out. You are a bottom-feeding muckraker.’”

“What I have to do in the future is just give myself permission to say, ‘That this is more than likely a syphilitic parasite, and I need to distance myself from this clown, otherwise I’m probably going to put hands on somebody, and then there’s a real story,’” Robert said.
