On Monday 14 December you and a friend could be walking along the red carpet next to Jude Law (swoon), Robert Downey Jr (mega swoon), and the supercool Rachel McAdams (girl crush swoon).

The ‘Iron Man’ star Robert Downey Jr – who was arrested and attended rehab several times between 1996 and 2001 – insists he had always promised himself he would never try class A narcotics and only realised he had a problem when he used drugs to get rid of his “flu”-like symptoms.
He said: “That first time it was opium. The second time it looked like opium. Looked the same, smelled the same, a little dirtier, not quite as pristine a buzz and by the time three weeks later, when I woke up, thought I had the flu and took a hit on it, I looked up and said, ‘Great. So now we’re junkies. This is f**king great.’
“I was always the guy who was like, ‘No heroin. No crack’. But it doesn’t matter if you go 10 years without doing it. Because of that 3,551st day, it’s your turn.”
The ‘Sherlock Holmes’ actor also admitted he had struggled to eventually let go of his addiction and found himself going back to the habit time and time again.
He added to Britain’s Esquire magazine: “I’m Retread Fred, serial relapser.” [Source]
On Friday, Dec. 11 Moviefone will be sitting down with the entire cast and director (Robert Downey Jr, Jude Law, Rachel McAdams, Mark Strong and Guy Ritchie) of ‘Sherlock Holmes.’ They want you to submit your questions! You can find out how to do that HERE!
Robert Downey Jr. got in shape because he got sick.
The 44-year-old actor has had to get fit for his action-packed roles in ‘Iron Man 2′ and ‘Sherlock Holmes’ and although he has been exercising regularly an illness he picked up in Japan kick-started his weight loss.
He is quoted as saying: “I was in Japan promoting ‘Iron Man’, and I went to a restaurant where I contracted a parasite and got really sick for three days.
“I started losing weight and thought to myself, ‘Hey this is a nice jump-start!’ It just gave me a nice little head-start with the first five pounds and then I kept going until I was thin, I felt as though I may float away.”
Robert insists it’s important for him to be in prime condition for the roles because he has been asking the directors of both movies – Guy Ritchie on ‘Sherlock Holmes’ and Jon Favreau who is helming ‘Iron Man 2′ – to increase his stunt duties.
He said: “The action’s certainly got bigger on ‘Iron Man 2′ that’s because I went to do ‘Sherlock Holmes’, which was a real adventure.
“So coming back to ‘Iron Man 2′ I really challenged our stunt team to get our hands a little more dirty because I was still kind of into that… I love it so much.
“There is no better day that I can have than one where I beat people up or get thrown around. I just love it.” [Source]
