Charlie Sheen: I brought my HIV to Elton John's Aids party

2016-03-01 15:59

Los Angeles - Charlie Sheen "brought HIV" to Sir Elton John's Oscars viewing party.

The Anger Management actor - who confirmed last November he had contracted the virus four years ago - arrived casually-dressed in a black suit jacket and fitted black trousers to the singer's glitzy bash, which raises money for the Elton John AIDS Foundation, on Sunday night but insisted his appearance didn't matter.

He told ABC7: "If somebody said, 'You're not wearing a tie.' Well, I'm at an AIDS event and I brought my HIV."

You may think this is typical Charlie Sheen behaviour, but his presence may have been the most inspiring event of the night.

In lieu of formal attire, Charlie teamed his jacket and trousers with a T-shirt bearing a picture of his own face and the slogan "Stay positively negative".

Charlie - who has five children from various relationships - previously pledged to dedicate his life to find a cure for HIV and wants his offspring to regard him as a "true hero".

Revealing he hopes his kids will see the beneficial work he has done when they search the Internet for him in five years' time, the 50-year-old star said:

"They're going to see that dad is a true hero. That he helped a lot of people and continues to help people who can't help themselves.

"I hope in my abilities to do something really positive with this."

Charlie seemed in high spirit as he arrived to the bash. In his interview with Access Hollywood, the controversial actor shared some profound truth and perspective on coping with HIV. He also told Access Hollywood that he's the guy who 'should be here.'
