Charlie Sheen "brought [his] HIV" to Sir Elton John's Oscars viewing party.
The 'Anger Management' actor - who confirmed last November he had contracted the virus four years ago - arrived casually-dressed to the singer's glitzy bash, which raises money for the Elton John AIDS Foundation, last night (28.02.16) but insisted his appearance didn't matter.
He told ABC7: "If somebody said, 'You're not wearing a tie.' Well, I'm at an AIDS event and I brought my HIV."
In lieu of formal attire, Charlie teamed his jacket and trousers with a T-shirt bearing a picture of his own face and the slogan "Stay positively negative".
Charlie - who has five children from various relationships -
previously pledged to dedicate his life to find a cure for HIV and wants his offspring to regard him as a "true hero".
Revealing he hopes his kids will see the beneficial work he has done when they search the Internet for him in five years' time, the 50-year-old star said: "They're going to see that dad is a true hero. That he helped a lot of people and continues to help people who can't help themselves.
"I hope in my abilities to do something really positive with this."
