Charlie Sheen's recent HIV-positive announcement may be bringing in the big, big bucks.
The 50-year-old actor opened up about living with the diagnosis, and how it has changed his life dramatically. Instead of harping on the hardships, however, Sheen is making light of the situation by publishing a tell-all memoir.
Fox News Latino reports that the actor has been "shopping around" for major publishers, but his $10 million price tag is too high for them to bite.
"When Charlie starred in Two and a Half Men, it was a funny comedy, but the idea of $10 million is even funnier," a publisher at the New York Post explained. "So much of his life has played out in public, and so much is sordid — in this case there may be too much information. What's left to find out?"
It's clear that Sheen's big ideas for the book aren't exactly what publishers had in mind. Publisher Judith Regan also told the Post, "I would like to publish his autobiography as an epic poem."
Sheen has also revealed that he paid up to $10 million to people who were blackmailing him about his HIV diagnosis. "What people forget is that's money they're taking from my children. You know?" he said. "They think it's just me. But I've got fiev kids and a granddaughter, you know?"
