Sarah Jessica Parker refuses to regret her romance with actor Robert Downey Jr. because it better prepared her for future relationships, reports.

The Sex And The City star started dating the actor after they met on the set of Firstborn in the 1980s.

Downey Jr. publicly battled drug addiction during their seven-year relationship, before the couple split in 1991.

But Parker has no regrets over the affair, insisting it made her a better person.

“Yeah, I probably made some wrong choices, but I’m really kind of glad that I have because you make better choices afterward,” Parker said. “You want to have made some wrong choices. You don’t want to get it right so early in life, because it’s all in front of you, I think.”

Parker is now married to actor Matthew Broderick.
