Robert Downey Jr has said he wants to see his old flame Sarah Jessica Parker again - but that he'd like her husband Matthew Broderick's permission.

The couple dated for several years after meeting on the set of 1984 film Firstborn, before the Sex And The City star split with the Iron Man actor over his drug and alcohol use.

Now the star has told The Howard Stern Show: "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."

It has been more than 20 years since their split, but The Judge actor , who is currently expecting a daughter with wife Susan Downey, told the show: " I'll make a point of trying to see her while I'm here. I'd like to.

"I'll ask his (Matthew Broderick's) permission. I just want to check in for a few minutes. I love Matthew Broderick."

He added: "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."
