The Charlie Sheen machine keeps on pumping through the the weekend, with the troubled star telling Access Hollywood Live yesterday that he’s planning on taking a trip down to the earthquake-ravaged area with his good friend, Sean Penn.
“We’re going to do a couple things first and then it looks like we’re heading down [to Haiti],” Charlie told interviewers, “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.”
Penn recently sprang to Sheen’s defence when he was interviewed for the latest issue of GQ, saying “Charlie is a very ironic character. He’s got pretension in the crosshairs of his wit. I think to a large degree he’s saying, ‘Guys, we’re only going to be here once, so lighten the f*** up.’” Penn’s reps, however, would not confirm that the trip was going ahead. Besides, he’s probably still tired from all the work he did in Iraq:
No word on how precisely Sheen, currently the subject of a restraining order from his wife after threatening to cut her head off, intends to transform into a humanitarian.
We imagine the media-savvy in Haiti have already begun boarding up their windows.
