Was there Sex in the City?!
Probably, not! However, Robert Downey Jr. told Howard Stern on Tuesday that he did reunited with former love Sarah Jessica Parker while visiting the Big Apple.

The radio personality asked the action hero about the state of their relationship since the 50-year-old had previously expressed an interest in seeing the fashionista.
The Iron Man star stated:
"You know how life goes and so many things happen, particularly when you're looking at the back nine and you're not a kid anymore. You go, 'You know, this trip to new York, as opposed to just doing what's required of me, I actually want to take care of some personal business. I wanna check in with someone I shared a big part of my life with and say hi.'"
Aww! RDJ and SJP split back in 1991 due to Robert's drug problem. However, both stars have gotten their lives together and starred in some pretty epic franchises since the breakup!
The Oscar nominee said:
"You know, the funny thing too, is you always have a perception of somebody that you spent a big chunk of your life with and I think it's typical to the human thing that the further you get away from that in your new relationship, you [unintentionally] taint your perception of the person."
Whoa! That must've been one heck of a revelatory reunion.
"Seeing her, I was like, 'She's so great and so cool and so funny and so in-command. I got to meet her kids and I saw the way she and Matthew lived and I respect both of them so much…. You have fresh eyes and you're actually willing to go to a deeper level of acceptance and kind of just make peace with the way life is.
Anytime I was in a relationship, I thought, 'You're gonna bury me next to this woman.' It's not that simple and God has other plans."
AH-Mazing! The father-of-three has overcome so much — it's incredible to see that he was able to get closure with this past relationship.
The Sherlock Holmes star did share that the reunion wasn't necessarily without its hiccups. He noted:
"I said everything I wanted to say. It's a little bit stilted but then there's this familiarity that overtakes it and you realize you're just in the presence of this fully mature mother and woman and artist and human being. There's enough good will left over, you didn't burn that bridge."
With his summer blockbuster Age of Ultron set to release May 1, it seems everything's coming up Robert!
We wonder if there are any future play dates scheduled between the famous former flames' children? We certainly hope so!
