Charlie Sheen - level 2

24-11-2015 15:00

Charlie Sheen is a Hollywood actor who became famous in the 1980s, but people know him best for his role on a TV comedy series "Two and a Half Men”. This role made him the highest paid actor on TV.

However, proplr fired Sheen in 2011 for doing too much drugs, having sex with prostitutes, and drinking too much alcohol. Also, the media started to speculate about his health weeks ago.

In a TV interview, the actor admitted that he has AIDS. He first found out four years ago, but  he needed time to absorb the bad news.

Difficult words: speculate (to try to figure out if something is true), admit (to say that something is true), absorb (to think about).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
