Robert Downey Jr. (People)

"It just reminds me of that one scene from Kiss Kiss Bang Bang."
"Really?"
"Yeah, you know, after Robert Downey Jr. dies, Val Kilmer gets a message from him?"

About 15 years ago, Robert Downey Jr. and Val Kilmer were bright young Hollywood stars. The former earned an Oscar nod playing Charlie Chaplin; Kilmer took on the role of Jim Morrison and donned the Batman cape. As the millennium approached, things turned sour for Downey, who battled a crippling drug addiction and a view of rock bottom from a strange child's bed. Kilmer, meanwhile, dealt with a high-profile divorce and...well, At First Sight couldn't have helped matters. The two united in 2006 in the very sharp and funny Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, which brought both actors back onto the radar (and onto the pay-per-view menus at the Neptune Grand).
