Charlie Sheen Update: Jenny McCarthy Continues To Criticize Actor For Not Disclosing HIV Status To Female Co-Stars [PHOTO]
Her concerns were addressed by a statement from Charlie Sheen's rep, but Jenny McCarthy continues to express concerns that she and Sheen's other female co-stars over the years were never informed of his HIV diagnosis.
McCarthy originally commented on her former Two and a Half Men co-star's disclosure on TODAY on her own radio show, Dirty, Sexy Funny earlier this week, where she said she felt there was an unfair double standard because she had to always notify co-stars if she had a cold sore, but Sheen was never required to tell her about his status when she played his romantic interest.
Sheen's rep then went on to criticize McCarthy's comments, saying Sheen contracted the virus sometime after his stint on Two and a Half Men, meaning McCarthy was not affected.
However, the 41-year-old still addressed the situation afterwards, taking to her Twitter account to post a clarification of her comments, where she said she never believed he had infected her, but that she didn't think it was right that he wasn't required to share the news had they worked together post-diagnosis.

"The point I raised about Charlie Sheen on my Sirius radio show, had nothing to do with whether or not I think he put me at risk. I simply took issue with a double standard in the industry," she wrote. "Every actress (and actor for that matter) must disclose hundreds of personal health matters before ever being allowed to set foot on a film set. Yet an actor who interacts with dozens of actresses in intimate scenes, is not required to disclose that he has HIV? I am very aware that HIV is not spread through kissing, but I also believe that if an actress has to disclose all of her business before kissing a male costar, that actor should be required to disclose something as major as an HIV infection too. His disclosures in his personal life are none of my business, and are for him to reconcile with the people he interacted with privately. I am not one of them."
