Disney Legend23 Honors: Robert Downey Recalls Arrest for Smoking Dope

Robert Downey Jr., star of Iron Man and The Avengers movies, celebrated his Disney Legend honor by sharing the tale of how the first time he visited Disneyland, he was arrested.

The Iron Man actor was being honored in Anaheim at Disney’s biennial D23 convention. After a brief introduction by Disney chief executive officer Bob Iger, Downey felt he had to come clean to the elated crowd.

He told a bit of trivia: “The very first time I went to Disneyland I was transported to another place…within moments of being arrested,” Downey Jr. explained. “I was brought to a surprisingly friendly processing center. Given a stern warning and returned, if memory servers, to one very disappointed group chaperone. I would like to make amends for whoever had to contain me for smoking pot in the gondola without a license.
