"Anger Management" actor Charlie Sheen on Tuesday sat down with Matt Lauer for an interview, where he confessed that the National Enquirer report about him being HIV positive was true.
While Sheen's admission has put to rest various rumours regarding his health status, body language expert Dr. Lillian Glass has called his truth "one huge lie after another!" reported Radar Online.
"After watching Charlie Sheen's interview several times I was blown away by how drastically different his words were from his actions. It was shocking to see how Charlie only discloses his status for selfish reasons. It is not for the noble cause that is above himself. It is all about himself," said Glass.
According to Glass, Sheen avoided making eye contact with Lauer, and he was constantly leaning back too much, which indicates that he was detached from the whole situation.
She also feels that Sheen's admission that he spent millions to cover up his diagnosis sent out the wrong message that being HIV positive was something to be ashamed about.
"Charlie has blown the chance to help so many people who are infected and affected by HIV because it appears he did this interview out of spite, revenge and anger," she said, adding: "Charlie may think that he is a good actor, but he just showed the world today that he cannot even play himself in a dramatic and serious role."
However, in an open letter released on Today website, Sheen said he was coming out with the confession to spread more awareness on HIV. Detailing his battle with the virus, Sheen said he came to know about his condition four years ago, and shame and anger resulted in him abusing drugs and alcohol.
"In and around this perplexing and difficult time, I dazedly chose (or hired) the companionship of unsavory and insipid types," Sheen admitted. "Regardless of their salt-less reputations, I always lead with condoms and honesty when it came to my condition. Sadly, my truth soon became their treason, as a deluge of blackmail and extortion took center stage in this circus of deceit."
