Pop star Sting was shocked when he met Robert Downey Jr and discovered the actor regularly served him coffee at a neighbourhood restaurant in New York City before he got his big break. Downey stars in the critically acclaimed film A GUIDE TO RECOGNISING YOUR SAINTS, which was produced by Sting and his wife Trudie Styler. Sting explains, "I met him a few years ago and he was a famous actor and he said, 'You don't remember me do you?' "And I said, 'Yes, you're Robert Downey, and he said, 'No, I used to be your waiter down in Soho (New York City).' "I used to have coffee every morning when I woke up and he used to bring me my coffee. I said, 'Did I give a good tip? 'and he said no!"
