Avengers: Endgame hero Robert Downey Jr has revealed that he was once arrested at Disneyland for “smoking pot”.
The A-Lister endured a highly-publicised period of drug use and legal troubles earlier in his career, so this revelation could possibly be tied to that time in his life.
Receiving an award at this weekend’s D23 expo, he recalled in his acceptance speech: “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 centre, given a stern warning and, if memory serves, one very disappointed group chaperone. And I’ve been sitting on that shame for a while, and I’m just going to release it here,” he continued.
“I would like to make amends to whomever had to detain me for smoking pot on the gondola without a licence. And I don’t want to further confuse the issue by insinuating that pot smoking licences for the gondola are in any way obtainable, or for any of the other park attractions as far as I know.”
How’s that for honesty?
