From Charlie Sheen‘s phone call with Access Hollywood yesterday:
“We’re going to do a couple things first and then it looks like we’re heading down [to Haiti],” Charlie told Billy and Kit of his plans to visit the earthquake-ravaged nation with the Oscar winning actor. “And I’m excited as hell because, you know, if I can bring the attention of the world down there, then clearly this tsunami keeps cresting.”
Which, well, yes. If Charlie Sheen twit pics his trip to Haiti there is a fairly solid chance at least part of the world’s attention will follow. So: winning. Meanwhile, he also wants you to know he’s Jewish. Or partly Jewish.
“My mum is Jewish. Here’s where it gets confusing – we don’t know who her father was,” Charlie told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover during the phone interview on Friday’s show. “But she is, in fact, Jewish. So, I guess that would make me Jewish, and my children Jewish. And Brooke [Mueller], my ex-wife is Jewish. So, I guess I should’ve rolled all that out too.”
“You’re getting accused of anti-Semitic remarks – you might want to say, ‘By the way, I’m Jewish!'” Billy told Charlie.
“I know, I know — stupid me,” Charlie replied. “I just got caught sleeping. Caught napping. Which is rare for me. Anywho…. But, I’m proud of it. There you have it.”
Charlie Sheen, his own harshest PR critic.
