RDJ meets Mel Gibson for lunch?
According to E! News, Downey Jr met the troubled actor at the In-N-Out Burger in Irvine, California.
"The outing was a mix of both [business and pleasure]," said a source. "Just a friendly lunch between friends."
Downey Jr has been one of Gibson's biggest advocates since the voicemail scandal that occurred last summer. In fact, the Iron Man actor sought a cameo appearance for Gibson in The Hangover Part II only to have the crew refuse to work with him.
Downey Jr has had his own share of scandals. The actor dealt with substance abuse problems for years and was jailed numerous times before making a full recovery. Downey Jr reportedly hopes to help Gibson make a similar sort of comeback.
Gibson recently began his court-ordered community service at a children's charity. The service stems from a plea bargain in the misdemeanour battery case in which Gibson was accused of assaulting his former lover Oksana Grigorieva.
