Robert Downey Jr: Burger King Saved Me From Drugs

Mar 08, 2005 | 9:55am EST

Troubled actor Robert Downey Jr. credits fast food giant Burger King with helping him overcome his dangerous drug addiction.

The Chaplin star says he once planned a drugs binge in California, but a revolting burger from the restaurant chain made him think about his health for the first time, and forced him to start a healthy new life.

He recalls, "There I was with tons of f**king dope in my car. I'd already been up for a couple of days, and I could have gone on for the next couple of days. And it probably wouldn't have ended there."

"I have to thank Burger King. It was such a disgusting burger that I ordered. I thought I might have a heart attack, or have to go to hospital. I reached out to some people and said ' I'm really in trouble. I need to get this out of my system."
