During one of a litany of court appearances on drugs charges, he told a judge: ‘Taking drugs to me is like having a shotgun in my mouth with my finger on the trigger, and I like the taste of the gun metal.’It was a steep descent for Downey Jr, the handsome one-time leading light of Hollywood’s Brat Pack of actors who had won rave reviews for his roles in films such as Natural Born Killers and Short Cuts.
