Sheen's furious ex: "He doesn't value my life"

Sheen said during a Today Show interview that he has known for about four years but is responding well to medication and is currently healthy. Reaction was mostly supportive - Reynolds has zero sympathy for Sheen.

“He deserved it, he misbehaved,” he said during an interview with ITV show "Loose Women."

Last year Reynolds made a different sort of headline,  auctioning off an enormous stash of jewelry, clothing, artwork, furniture, vehicles, award trophies, signed sports memorabilia, movie mementos and assorted other odds and ends.

The star of scores of movies from 1972’s “Deliverance,” filmed in the north Georgia mountains, to “Smokey and the Bandit” (also filmed in Georgia) to more recent projects including “Boogie Nights” and “The Longest Yard,” not to mention numerous television projects, has even put his Rolodex on the block.



During the ITV interview Reynolds did have kind words for Sheen's father, actor Martin Sheen: "His father is a very, very decent man and a dear friend of mine. I feel bad for him.”
