Robert Downey Jr. Has Some Advice for Charlie Sheen (VIDEO)

Robert Downey Jr. Has Some Advice for Charlie SheenRobert Downey Jr. is a former Hollywood "bad boy." The actor was known for his hard-partying ways, but now, Downey is clean and sober -- and he stays out of trouble. But there's always someone ready to fill the "bad boy" vacuum. Recently, that person seems to be Charlie Sheen.

This Friday, the cops came to Sheen's hotel room, after the actor allegedly went on a drunken coke-fueled rampage. Sheen also allegedly had a naked hooker locked in his room's closet. This is a big scandal for the 'Two and Half Men' star. So on 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS), David Letterman turned to his expert on drugs, booze and scandals -- Mr. Downey himself.

Apparently, Downey and Sheen went to the same high school, but Robert said they "didn't really hang out." Though he added this: "It sounds like we could have really partied."

Dave asked if his guest had any advice for Mr. Sheen. The actor kept his advice short and sweet. "Don't get arrested!" he said. Letterman wasn't satisfied by this. He kept humorously hammering home the idea that Robert was the perfect guy to talk to Charlie, not so subtly referring to Downey's troubled past.

Robert smirked tolerantly at Dave's antics, but no longer seemed tempted by his former lifestyle. He did admit it would be "fun" to get into some zany antics with Sheen in a hotel room. But then he swiftly changed his mind: "But not fun. ... Not fun."

Charlie Sheen is a sleaze and portrays one on that horrible show. Doesn't even have to try and act. Just "Doin' what comes naturally." Why people watch it is beyond my comprehension. I can hardly stomach the trailers. I wonder about the parents of the young man that plays his son. What are they thinking? I realize parents want their children to be financially secure, but this show glamorizes the "seamy" side of bachelor men and he is also exposed to a middle-aged adolscent still trying to find himself through every means of self-destruction. He has a number of beautiful children that should be enough to inspire him to think of someone besides himself. Why any woman would want anything to do with him is a true mystery. Of course, they appear to have "issues" themselves, as we all do. But publicly living this spectacle does nothing but harm the children.

I'm very hopeful that most of America sees the "Real" Housewives of Atlanta as who they represent. This defines Black/White Trash. Buckhead swoons....

It takes discipline to get off of drugs and alchohol.
Charlie has none.
Robert is talented, smart enough to know when to straiten up his life.
Charlie has no self discipline, a huge lack of morals. Charlie is all about Charlie, and no one eles. I dont see Charlie, ever changing his selfish ways.

It seems apparent that Mr Downey would like to be thought of in terms of his acting---which is stellar---rather than simply as a recovering addict. I felt that his body language was sending a clear signal to Letterman to drop the subject, but Letterman persisted. For a host to be so doggedly determined to pursue a subject which is uncomfortable for the guest seems to me to be the height of rudeness.

Charlie Sheen need advice from a class guy, like his father, I suppose that might have happened, but sheen is not takeing it. Charlie will never be like his father, but Martin can try. Sheen is headed down the wrong road. His show is in danger also.

You are so wrong, ask Charlies faf, he was a raving drunk himself. He talks about it and i think he wrote a book about how he failed the kids and wife by going on drunken rages. So I guess Charlie needs another role model??

If I were Robert Downey, Jr., I'd just STOP making the round of late-night talk shows! Jay Leno did the same thing with Mr. Downey ~ alluding to his previous problems and behaviors with drugs. The man is CLEAN and, hopefully, will stay that way. He's such a good actor and is married and has a family! My God! Just leave him alone about his past and focus on the films he's making and his current life! Both Leno and Letterman act as though they would like a relapse on their respective shows! As to giving Charlie Sheen advice, no one knows better than Downey that UNTIL Charlie WANTS to do something about his issues no amount of advice from ANYONE is going to help! Hopefully the man won't kill himself before he figures out he does need help! But leave Robert Downey, Jr., alone about his past and focus on the present!
