Charlie Sheen certainly isn't the healthiest star around, but those 36-hour benders do require some athletic stamina! So when the troubled Two and a Half Men star crossed paths with the UCLA baseball team, it came as no surprise the actor gave the Bruins a little pep talk.
Sheen -- a baseball fanatic -- was at UCLA taking batting practice with Major League pals Coco Crisp, Eric Davis, Brandon Watson and Milton Bradley just before the Bruins hit the field for their own practice on Thursday. UCLA's head coach John Savage, who X-17 reports is helping Sheen get into shape, approached Charlie and asked him to say a few words to the kids about the dangers of drug use.
The actor obliged, and the Bruins' catcher, Richard Brehaut, later shared Sheen's remarks via Twitter. Brehaut wrote: "'Don't do crack, drink chocolate milk, and enjoy every moment.... that's all I got.'-Charlie Sheen. That's what he told our baseball team today."
Indeed it was. TMZ has a video of Sheen bestowing those words of wisdom on the Bruins, though Sheen said "your moment" and not "every moment." The video shows that the players are clearly amused, laughing heartily at the actor and clapping for his anti-drug speech.
The soon-to-be divorced Sheen is currently rehabbing from home, halting the production of his hit CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men. In a good faith gesture, the actor has agreed to help pony up one-third of the salaries for the crew members who aren't getting paid during the show's hiatus.
To these college guys, Sheen probably seems like a playboy who is partying it up, making bank and living the life. But hopefully these young athletes take his words to heart, avoid the crack and kick back with a nice big glass of chocolate milk.
