Actor-filmmaker Mel Gibson has expressed gratitude to Robert Downey Jr for having his back after his 2006 arrest and anti-Semitic remarks.

The actor talked about the support he received from the Oppenheimer star during an interview and said: “One time, I got into a bit of a sticky situation where it kind of ended my career. I was drunk in the back of a police car, and I said some stupid shit, and all of a sudden, I was blacklisted. I’m the poster boy for 
cancelled.”

He further added, “A couple of years into that, he invited me to some kind of award he was getting. We always had this kind of seesaw thing, where if he was on the wagon, I was falling off, and if I was on the wagon, he was falling off. So, I was pretty much nonexistent in Hollywood at the time, and he stood up and spoke for me. It was a bold, generous, and kind gesture. I loved him for that.”

Actor Jodie Foster also talked about how she pulled him aside during the filming of 1995’s Home for the Holidays to talk to him amid his addiction struggles.
