Charlie Sheen HIV Positive status: Why no one is sympathizing with him?
Charlie Sheen says he shared the news of his HIV positive status to his eldest daughter Cassandra and she felt inconsolable. According to him, the 30 year old Cassandra was completely shocked when he told the news to her.
The Two and a Half Men actor also told the interviewer that he had informed about his HIV positive status to his former wives Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller.
Brooke Mueller who had expressed sympathy for her ex husband following the revelation told her fans and friends that she is not HIV Positive. A representative for Mueller in a statement said, â€œBrooke has been inundated with calls from friends and family. To put their minds at ease, Brooke can confirm that she and the boys are not HIV positive.â€
Sheen said that it was tough telling his daughter Cassandra about his HIV positive status. â€œI felt bad. It hit her hard, but she recovered and sheâ€™s tough like her dadâ€¦I said, â€˜Sweetie, Iâ€™m sorry I didnâ€™t tell you sooner, but it didnâ€™t seem like you could do anything for me and I didnâ€™t want to burden you with all the stress.â€™ But she was a rock star about it.â€
Charlie Sheen also said that he told almost everyone who were very close to him about his medical condition. â€œI told enough that I trusted to be in the position and the situation that Iâ€™m in todayâ€, said he.
In the meantime he looked sure that he will make a comeback. â€œI’ve been up. I’ve been down. I’ve been rich. I’ve been poor. I’ve been unemployed. It’s another chapter in my lifeâ€ said he. There are other people who also believe that his HIV Positive status doesnâ€™t affect his Hollywood prospects.
Oriol Gutierrez, editor in chief of Poz says that it is not the end of his career. â€œI hope he can still have a careerâ€¦Hollywood is not immune from the stigma of HIV. Obviously he felt he couldn’t disclose for years and that in itself should tell you the power of stigma, not just in Hollywood but in society in general. That’s going to have an impact. But we’re talking about Charlie Sheen â€” there are plenty of other reasons not to give him an opportunityâ€, said he.
