Burt Reynolds appeared on the British talk show ‘Loose Women’ and said he doesn’t feel sorry that Charlie Sheen is HIV-positive and instead said that he totally deserves it because he ‘misbehaved.’
Whoa, Burt Reynolds didn’t hold back when asked about Charlie Sheen on the Dec. 8 episode of Loose Women. The 79-year-old actor, who is a longtime friend of Charlie’s dad Martin Sheen, said that Charlie is “getting what he deserves” with his HIV-positive diagnosis.
“His father’s a very, very decent man and a dear friend of mine,” Burt said. “I feel bad for [Martin]. But Charlie, I don’t feel bad for him. He’s getting what he deserves. If you’re going to misbehave like that, then they’re going to get you.” He was asked once more if he felt bad at all for Charlie he slammed him again: “For Charlie? No. He deserves it. He misbehaved badly, very badly. But you know, when you’re that age, it’s tough. All those things are coming at you, and it’s difficult.”
Charlie announced on The Today Show that he was HIV-positive and that he had been battling the disease for several years. ”I’m here to admit that I am in fact HIV-positive. I have to put an end to these truths. It started with crushing headaches and sweating the bed 2-3 nights — I thought it was over. It’s a hard three letters to absorb, you know? It’s a turning point in one’s life.” Now Charlie is in a bitter legal feud with his ex, Brett Rossi who claims he slept with her and didn’t reveal he had the disease. But now he has fired back with a lawsuit of his own and said she’s “extorting” him for money.
