Robert Downey Jr.'s Tweets to a Little Boy Having a Bad Day Will Make Your Heart Melt

Celebrities likely get tweeted at hundreds of times a day, making it hard for them to answer every single tweet — but every once in a while a lucky fan will get a response. Kathy Ellis tweeted to Robert Downey Jr. last year, asking him to say "hi" to her son Aidan, who was having a "rough day." Downey Jr. came through, making the young boy's day.

@RobertDowneyJr It would make my son Aidan's day if you could re tweet "hi." As you can see he has had a rough day.

Downey Jr. replied directly to Aidan through Kathy's account, and the exchange continued from there. The boy touched on his bad day, adding in another reply, "You made my day and my year."

@RobertDowneyJr I was racing with my bro. I was slowing down and he pushed me into the house. Not on purpose. You are the best actor. Aid
