Nick Carter's younger brother recalls that while in rehab, he started to look up to actor Robert Downey Jr., who spent some time at the Betty Ford Center
in 1998. "I probably shouldn't even say this, but I stayed in the same room that Robert Downey Jr. stayed in, and he became my idol because of Iron Man
and what he did with his career," he said. "Then I made him my mentor without him even knowing about it."
