Actor Charlie Sheen accidently posted his personal phone number on Twitter this week. The former Two and a Half Men had presumably attempted to send a friend a personal message, but ended up sending out his cell phone digits to 5.5 million followers, according to the New York Post.
The message itself read, "Call me bro", with the number preceding it, but the post was later deleted after Sheen had realised his error. It is not clear how many calls and messages the actor received from fans, or whether he has now changed the number. The tweet comes just months after his Sheen's former Two and a Half Men co-star Jon Cryer had claimed he didn't even have the actor's number. After Charlie was sacked from the sitcom in March, Cryer was asked by TV Guide whether he had been in touch with the star, replying, "I don't even have [Sheen's] number". Following his dismissal, the actor began developing an increasingly large online presence, particularly on Twitter, and later went on a nationwide theatre tour. He introduced words and phrases such as "winning" and "Tiger blood" into the urban lexicon and publically slammed his former producer Chuck Lorre.
In recent weeks, attention has been focused on Sheen's ex-wife Brooke Muller who was arrested in Aspen, Colorado, on Saturday (December 3, 2011) for third degree assault and possession of cocaine. Reports suggest Sheen bailed out Mueller on an $11,000 bond. Earlier this week, AOL revealed that the actor was unsurprisingly the most searched for celebrity of 2011.
