Robert Downey Jr. & Mel Gibson:

Double-Double Date

3/21/2011 3:25 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Robert Downey Jr. and Mel Gibson got together for a friendly celebrity power lunch yesterday, but it didn't go down at one of those super-expensive Hollywood joints -- they got burgers at In-N-Out ... TMZ has learned. 

Mel Gibson and Robert Downey Jr.
The old friends found themselves out in Irvine, CA when the hunger pangs hit -- so they went to every West Coasters favorite fast food spot. 

According to a witness, they each ordered a Double-Double combo meal and dined with a third person, non-celebrity. They were joined by a friend, who did the ordering for them.

BTW -- We know the pic is blurry, but we've confirmed  ... it's definitely them.

No word on why the two were in Irvine together, but we're told it definitely wasn't for a movie.

I was there and saw them! I'm not the "witness" who creepily observed what they were eating, but I was about 5 tables down. Crazy!

@fran:"For openers Howie it was never proven that Mel said those things. Mel's manager was a jew, for over 30 yrs until his death last year....Mel also reached out to Robert Downey when no-one else would be bothered with him and got Robert back on track, and back into acting...Robert and Mel have been friends for many years. So maybe you should learn a few facts before starting the jew rant. I think people are getting really tired of everything being about Jews on here."

Mel said it. The police officer who stopped him drunk driving, said and wrote in his police report that Mel said it. Mel never denied that he said it. Don't you think Mel would have denied it if it wasn't true? Of course, he would have. He may be an angry, racist drunk, but he ain't stooooopid.

Of course, you're upset that someone mentions again that Mel is an anti-semite. But you never get tired of defending Mel against being an anti-semite. Why is that? Do you feel a kinship to Mel because he believes what you do about Jews? That seems to be the case here. Deny it if you think it's untrue.

Why? Charlie's having a blast. He's planning to do a last show in Haiti with proceeds going to disaster work down there.

Sean Penn's still involved down there. First in, still there long after the A-listers had their PR shots.

And I gotta give up to Ne-Yo for sticking with Japan tour. The money for those shows will go to Japanese disaster reliefs.

@: "Howie,
Are you really this stupid, or do you just like acting like you are?"

The difference here is that there is no doubt how stupid you are. Are you a racist against Jews too? How about against other identifiable groups? Or are you just stupid?

Howie I have never seen anyone but Jewish people bring more attention to their religion than the Jewish community. Why isn't the Jewish community if they are so close helping Charlie his mother is Jewish. Where is the Love now?

What I like about you, Confused, is that you have a good idea what you are and even name yourself what you are so no one else will be Confused. Congratulations!

I can't help but snicker. According to the logic displayed by some, Chuck Lorre is an anti-semite, too.

Oh - and every single rapper who used the word "n*gger" in a song is a racist.

And a slap is automatically abuse - so every woman who has ever slapped a guy should locked up, right?

Silly people and their silly logic.

Yes, many people find Mel to be compelling. Then again, many found Hitler to be "compelling" too.
