Sarah Jessica Parker is opening about the lesson she learned with Robert Downey Jr. They first met on the set of Firstborn and started dating in 1984. The relation came to an end in 1991 after Robert started struggling with drug and alcohol abuse.

In an interview Robert said

“I liked to drink, and I had a drug problem, and that didn’t jibe with Sarah Jessica because it is the furthest thing from what she is.”

He also added

“She provided me a home and understanding. She tried to help me. She was so miffed when I didn’t get my act together.”

Sarah said she also learned how to make love. The way you care and the way you show your love affects the relationship you are in. That what’s she meant and she knows how to show love towards someone she loves.

“Maybe it taught me a little bit about being a parent too, because the things that I ended up caring about, and the way I cared for Downey, were things that might be more suitable for a parent at a certain point.”
