Burt Reynolds has no sympathy for Charlie Sheen

Burt ReynoldsBurt Reynolds has no sympathy for Charlie Sheen over his HIV diagnosis.

The 79-year-old actor has claimed the former Two and a Half Men star is paying the price for his party-loving lifestyle and he doesn’t feel sorry for him in any way, saying he ”deserves” to have contracted the virus.

Burt – whose career was beset by HIV rumors in the 1980s – was asked if he felt sorry for Charlie, and he said: ”For Charlie, no, he deserves it. He misbehaved badly. Very badly. But you know when you’re that age, it’s tough. All those things are coming at you and it’s difficult.”

Burt said he’s a close friend of Charlie’s father, actor Martin Sheen, and he is sympathetic towards his situation.

Speaking while recording an interview on ITV’s Loose Women, the actor said: ”He’s handled it badly I think. His father is a very, very decent man and a dear friend of mine. I feel bad for him, but Charlie, I don’t feel bad for him. He’s getting what he deserves. If you’re going to misbehave like that, they’re going to get you.”

A member of the show’s audience subsequently told The Sun: ”The audience were shocked – as were [TV hosts] Ruth and Coleen – and there was an extremely awkward silence. Of course, HIV is something that no one deserves.”

    I have no sympathy for him either. When you have unprotected sex with hundreds of hookers and porn stars, what do you expect is going to happen? Does he deserve HIV? Yeah suckers, that is exactly what he deserves. He knew what could happen. Same for Lamar Odom or whatever his name is. Idiots deserve what happens to them for being that stupid. It’s the Darwin Theory.

    People actually understand good from evil. Its an evil thing to give anyone HIV.
    Most Americans believe in the “celebrity” facade which enforces their belief in fantasy. Listen to your yourselves, this man knowingly engaged in unprotected sex along with using illegal drugs which resulted in infecting others. This is now a roller coaster effect against people who will be grieving the loss of their loved ones and providers.
    Don’t look at this with rose colored glasses…..it’s not a good dead, it’s evil.
