Dating from 1984-1991, Robert Downey Jr. and Sarah Jessica Parker were a couple of young actors in love. But things got derailed due to the Iron Man star's drug and alcohol abuse.
Now, 23 years after their split, Robert admitted he'd love to reconnect with his old flame, but only if her current husband, Matthew Broderick, were game.
"I'll make a point of trying to see her while I'm [in New York City]. I'd like to," the 49-year-old told Howard Stern on his SiriusXM radio show. "I'll ask [Matthew's] permission. I just want to check in for a few minutes. I love Matthew Broderick."

The pair first met on the set of 1984's Firstborn when they were just starting out in the business. When asked whether Sarah Jessica broke his heart, the dad-of-two confessed their breakup was tough.
"I've never been the kind of person to acknowledge what's going on with me at the time, and I'd try to make light of it, but sure, when you're with someone for seven years, 18 to our mid-20s, it's kind of a big deal," he told the radio host.
Now that they're both happily married to other people — Sarah Jessica to Matthew for 17 years and Robert to producer Susan Downey for nine — the Oscar nominee wouldn't mind making their reunion a double date!

"I'd love to have [Matthew] there. I'll bring Susan," he said, even inviting Howard to join the party. "Would you mind coming just to kind of mediate the whole thing? It would be a natural extension seeing as you're a part of the conversation."
As the interview came to a close, Robert added, "I respect both of them so much. For any situation like this, I think enough time has to pass. You don't have to make a big deal of it when the time is right."
