Charlie Sheen, Sean Penn, and Hugo Chavez to the rescue!
The dynamic trio are on the job to solve Haiti’s and Libya’s problems! Here’s how it’s developing:
Sean Penn has come to Charlie Sheen’s defense, saying that Carlos Irwin Estevez is “a guy who has a clearer view of the nature of the world around him than is sometimes comfortable to have”.
I kid you not:
Sean Penn Speaks Out on His Friend Charlie Sheen
Sean Penn on Sheen: “When you divorce the moral judgments, which I prefer to do, I see a guy who has a clearer view of the nature of the world around him than is sometimes comfortable to have. Those are the sort of people who have a tendency to find altered states. But he’s 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–k up.’”
I like that, “He’s got pretension in the crosshairs of his wit.”
In a conversation with “Access Hollywood” host Billy Bush, Sheen said, “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.”
Ugh. Poor choice of words, Charlie.
Sean didn’t go into details about what that meant.
However, Sean’s meeting with Hugo Chávez (link in Portuguese) this weekend to discuss Hugo’s proposal to send a goodwill peace commission to Libya. Chávez claims (link in Spanish) Sean’s worried about what’s going on in Libya, as if there weren’t enough reasons to worry about what’s going on in Venezuela.
Once Sean and Hugo work out the Libya situation, Sean will be heading to Haiti with Charlie next week.
No word as to whether Sean will be introducing Charlie to Hugo any time soon.
