Charlie Sheen is planning to write his autobiography.
The 50-year-old actor revealed he is HIV positive, and since his confession on the Today show, his manager Mark Burg has reportedly been ”buried with offers” from publishers who are desperate for the Anger Management star to tell his colorful life story.
The actor revealed he had been diagnosed with the disease four years ago. He said: ”I thought based on migraines and cluster headaches and sweating the bed for nights in a row that I had a brain tumor. I thought it was over. After a battery of tests they told me this is what’s going on. It’s a hard three letters to absorb, it’s a turning point in one’s life.”
And Charlie also hopes that going public with his diagnosis will help to reduce the stigma surrounding HIV.
He said: ”I have a responsibility now to better myself and to help a lot of other people and hopefully with what we’re doing today others will come forward and say, ‘thanks Charlie, thanks for kicking the door open.’ I’m not going to be the poster man for this, but I will not shun away from responsibilities.”
