Jenny McCarthy has no kind words for Charlie Sheen.
The 43-year-old actress played his love interest a handful of times on “Two and a Half Men” between 2007 and 2011. During her radio show Wednesday, she said Sheen should have been more upfront about his HIV.
“Now being on ‘Two and a Half Men’ myself, I feel like in playing a love interest, you would think there would be some type of, I don’t want to say criminal issue, but I don’t even know how to feel about that,” McCarthy said. (PHOTOS: The Women Charlie Sheen Didn’t Tell About His HIV)
McCarthy said she had to sign releases related to her cold sores while she was on the show.
“I was like, ‘Wait a second, if I have to be upfront about a herpe, how could you not be upfront about HIV?’ I look back and I’m like, ‘OK, that would have been some valuable information.’ I mean, look how many people have played his love interest on the show.” (RELATED: Charlie Sheen Forced To Take Drastic Measures To Afford HIV Payoffs)
McCarthy, who said she is “STD-phobic,” added that she was aware you could not contract HIV through kissing.
“I have sympathy for him because he’s sick and it’s awful, but man, he’s going to have to take some major accountability with many people in his life.” (RELATED: Charlie Sheen Confirms He Is HIV-Positive)
