Jimmy Kimmel mocks Robert Downey Jr.'s drug past

Jimmy Kimmel joked about Robert Downey Jr.'s history with drug addiction during his opening monologue at the 96th Academy Awards Sunday.

“This is the highest point of Robert Downey Jr.’s long and illustrious career — well, one of the highest points,” Kimmel said.

Cameras then showed Downey Jr. double tapping on his nose, likely alluding to his past history with cocaine addiction.

 “Too on the nose? Or is that a drug motion you made?” Kimmel asked.

Downey was arrested in 1996 and charged with driving under the influence. Police also found heroin, cocaine, crack and a .357 Magnum in his vehicle.

Downey was also once arrested at Disneyland for "smoking pot in a gondola."
