Robert Downey Jr can be a notorious chap and the actor has struggled his way to the top. Many consider his story as an epitome of rags to riches and to everyone’s surprise, he has indeed suffered a lot in life.
Downey was presented with a Disney Legend Award at 2019's D23 Expo, which was held at the Anaheim Convention Center on Friday. And as always, he cracked up the audience with his acceptance speech. The Iron Man actor celebrated his award as he shared how he was arrested on his first visit to Disneyland.
After a brief introduction by Disney chief executive officer Bob Iger, Downey felt he had to come clean to the elated crowd.
“Here’s a bit of trivia for you, 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 centre. 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.
I’m sorry, I don’t want to further confuse the issue by insinuating that pot smoking licenses for the gondola are in any way attainable, or for any of the other park attractions… Maybe the Imagineers but that’s their own business. That’s a load off.-
Meanwhile, the actor also posted a few memorable pictures from the Award ceremony on his Instagram profile. He wrote: "Thanks guys, here's to the future!"
