Charlie Sheen lives his life with several regrets, he told the “Today” show’s Matt Lauer Tuesday morning — including “ruining” his hit sitcom “Two and a Half Men.”
“I regret not using a condom the one or two times when this whole thing happened,” he began in a list of semi-apologies, presumably referring to his HIV-positive status. “I regret ruining ‘Two and a Half Men.’ I regret not being more involved in my children’s lives growing up, which I am now. That’s about it.”
The actor then tried to put a positive spin on things. “We can only move forward from today. They wouldn’t call it the past if it wasn’t.”
Sheen also maintained that the HIV virus is now “undetectable” in his body, and said he has not infected anyone else.
The actor did admit to not revealing his status two people he slept with after knowing he was HIV positive, but he said “protection was always in place.” Sheen didn’t tell them out of fear of being blackmailed, he claimed.
Also during the interview, Sheen explained his current treatment regimen, and why he stopped seeing a controversial practice in Mexico. Sheen later dismissed pending lawsuits against him as “baseless.”
