Charlie Sheen has said that he thinks he is the best person to discover a cure for HIV. The former star of Two and a half Men said his recent diagnosis left him angry, but it didn’t last long before he saw the path forward: “I was angry. I was in denial. I was in shock.”
“But that didn’t last long. It was shortly afterwards – I think it was the second day – I said to my mom, ‘This disease picked the wrong guy,’” the 50-year-old said.
Sheen has recently been embroiled in multiple lawsuits after former lovers claimed he exposed them to the virus through unprotected sex and non-disclosure. The actor, however, remains defiant over his ability to battle on.
“If anybody can fight this thing and discover a cure, it’s me,” he said. “I will exhaust every resource available to me. I will sit with every expert. I will move forward until something’s revealed.”
