Robert Downey Jr. and Hugh Grant have decided to ''bury the hatchet''.

The two men worked together on the 1995 drama 'Restoration' but Hugh recently claimed the 'Iron Man' star ''hated'' him.

Robert, 52, responded on Twitter: ''A lot has happened over two decades! I respect how Mr. Grant has matured as an artist & voice against violations of privacy. Let's break bread together soon @HackedOffHugh! #burythehatchet2018''

The 'Love Actually' star replied: ''Thanks, @RobertDowneyJr. Nice way to kick off the year. And yes- if you're in London come by and break bread. Won't be easy as my 5 year old bakes it, but you seem strong. Respect. #burythehatchet2018 (sic)''

Hugh, 57, recently recalled to People magazine how Robert took an instant dislike from the moment they first went on set together.

The 'Paddington 2' star claimed: ''He hated me. He took one look at me and wanted to kill me.''

Hugh has four children, two with Tinglan Hong, a former receptionist at a Chinese restaurant in London and two with Swedish television producer Anna Eberstein, including five-year-old son John. Anna is currently pregnant with his fifth child.

Robert also has a five-year-old son, Exton, among his three children.

Meanwhile, Hugh also revealed he thinks 'Bridget Jones' Diary' actress Renee Zellweger is equally ''nutty'', but they get on very well.

He said: ''Renee loves me and I love Renee. Well, I mean she's in the same category as Emma Thompson, in terms of lunacy, but an amazing actress of course, and very generous.''

However, the 48-year-old actress almost got him into trouble when she sent a saucy gift.

He recalled: ''She once sent me a fabulous huge volume of beautiful photography, including a lot of semi-undressed women. I remember it because I had just landed in Marrakesh ... and the book was impounded.''
