Robert Downey Jr. and Sarah Jessica Parker were one of the hottest couples from the ‘80s and early ‘90s. They dated for seven years from 1984 to 1991 and they seemed madly in love with each other. Over 25 years after their breakup, these two still talk to the press about their relationship, so we’ve collected 7 things that most people don’t know about their romance:
7. Relationship Beginnings
Downey Jr. and Parker met on the set of the film Firstborn in 1987 when they were 18, and moved in two weeks after they started dating. They were aware that their relationship was moving really quickly at that point, so they kept their relationship and living arrangements a secret until filming had wrapped. Although they lived apart for a bit, she moved back in with him after he bought Charlie Chaplin’s old house and they lived there with their two Persian cats, Mr. Smith and Scout.
6. His Sense of Humor
The Sex and the City star was really attracted to the actor’s sense of humor. “What I really remember about Downey is how smart and funny and fast and relentless he was. I’d never encountered that kind of humor before, and I was mad for it. He’s not your run-of-the-mill funnyman. So much of his work is improv. It’s literally flying out of his mouth. There’s no one else like him,” she said. Robert also loved her sense of humor, but he loved how smart and well-spoken she was as well.
