7 Things You Didn’t Know About Robert Downey Jr. And Sarah Jessica Parker’s Relationship
5. She Made Him More Practical
Before the Iron Man star began dating Parker, he didn’t even have a bank account and would carry his cash around in his pocket! He once said that being with her made him more practical. “If I hadn’t met Sarah, I don’t think I would have gotten a lot of the jobs I did…Sarah has made me more practical. She got me an accountant and made me get a bank account. The reason you go out is to find somebody with whom you can live comfortably. I don’t think I need to look any further,” he said. Those weren’t the only things that she did for him. She would nurse him back to health following a night of partying and would make sure he got out of bed and to the set on time.
4. Promise Ring
During their relationship, she wore a “kind of a hanging-out-together ring.” There was a period of time where the Charlie Chaplin star thought that he and the Girls Just Want to Have Fun star were headed for marriage. “But the way I feel now, marriage looks like where we’re headed…it’s like someone you went to the army with and you’ve grown up together,” he said. Later, however, RDJ made it clear that he and his long-term girlfriend had no plans to get married and that they were just “sticking it out.”
