London: Hollywood heartthrob Robert Downey Jr has turned to crystal healing to repel the negative forces around him. The 45-year-old actor, who battled drug addiction since the age of eight has employed a man to carry crystals around him to help 'repent his soul' for the damage he did to his body when he was hooked to heroin and cocaine, Femalefirst reported.

"This guy dressed all in white has been following Robert around with a briefcase ever since filming began. After a couple of weeks, one of the crew members thought it was a bit weird and asked him what he was doing," a source said. "He explained the briefcase contained a set of crystals which apparently channel good energy from a pyramid in Los Angeles. Robert demands they go everywhere with him to help repent his soul for all the damage he did to his body when he was on drugs," the source added.

The 'Iron Man' star, who stars opposite Jude Law and Rachel McAdams in 'Sherlock Holmes 2' was previously jailed for three years in 1999 for possession of drugs and a handgun. The actor has been sober since 2001 but claimed that he wasn't changed by prison.

"I do think there's something divine about large-scale humiliation, but no, it never worked for me. It never produced enough of a blow back for me to catch the drift. It doesn't so much produce results as just get your attention, you become a fish in a barrel and there's really something quite beautiful

about that," Downey said.

"Jail didn't help me any more or less than anything else. But I know I created that experience for a reason, and I'm only just starting to understand those reasons. Remember this is California, 'Come on vacation, leave on probation.' I

mean, I can't believe I stayed out of the pen for as long as I did," he added.
