LOS ANGELES: Hollywood star Charlie Sheen, who announced last November he was HIV-positive, says he only had unprotected sex twice and always promoted the use of condoms but was incredibly unlucky.

"(It happened) a couple of times. Twice. And we would be having a different dialogue," Sheen told The Sun newspaper, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Asked if that meant he had only had unprotected sex twice, he added: "Oh yeah. I was always the guy that promoted it and said you have got to use condoms, this and that. I was too drunk or too bored one night and here we are". 

The 50-year-old star is grateful he was able to speak out about his diagnosis as he has been able to help others through his own battle.

"I have mad gratitude, 100 per cent. Thank you. My life is more fluid, it is more courageous, it is more heroic. If I had known it was going to move towards that, I would have come out a lot sooner," Sheen said. 

Meanwhile, Sheen tries to stay in good spirits about his diagnosis and insists he doesn't miss having sex.

"HIV is not the best pick-up line. So it has happened as a result of everybody else and myself having the knowledge, and that's fine," he said. 

"(I miss sex) but not to the extent where something is missing. Not to the extent where I'm saying, 'Oh that night could have been so much better'. It's fine. I mean, sex isn't going anywhere. It's still there. And if available, awesome. If not, no big deal. I'll spend more time hanging with my parents, you know?" he added.
