Sean Penn, a longtime friend of Charlie Sheen, gave his view on the state of the troubled "Two and a Half Men" actor. In an interview with GQ magazine, he called his pal "a very ironic character."
"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," Penn said in part.
In another excerpt, Charlie himself said, "In regards to this whole recent odyssey, I'll just say this: It was epic. There are two rules at my house right now: You park your judgment at the door, and you enjoy every moment. People can interpret that however they want. Enjoy every sober moment. Enjoy every loaded moment. Just enjoy every moment. It's not a rehearsal, you know?"
The April issue of GQ hits newsstands nationwide on March 22. The Charlie Sheen exposé also includes comments from porn star Kacey Jordan.
