Does Charlie have the authority to be giving life advice, other than ‘Don’t do what I do?’
Charlie Sheen made his most surprising move yet Feb. 21 — but no strippers were involved. The Two and a Half Men star, 45, teamed up with the Institute for Maximum Human Potential to film an educational video with advice for ad-risk teens in South Central Los Angeles. Giving advice to Lindsay Lohan is one thing, but a group of impressionable teens? Something about that just screams “terrible idea.”
IMHP is a support system for inner-city youth in South Central, which “promotes job skills and provides direction.” The organization is co-owned by Julianne Zeile, whose husband, former Mets player Todd, is one of Charlie’s good friends.
“Charlie spoke to the kids and was happy to pose for pictures with them,” Todd tells X17. “By no means, we didn’t intend for this to be news. This was all for the kids. The kids were enamored by Charlie. They were beyond excited to have him there.”
Another co-owner, Liz Zeile, tells X17, that Charlie was “in great spirits during filming” and that he was “happy to do this favor for his good friend Todd.”
