SAG stars show support for Charlie Sheen

A slew of celebrities at the SAG Awards were standing by Charlie Sheen's side as the troubled "Two and a Half Men" star seeks treatment at an undisclosed rehab facility.

"I say good for him; there's nothing better than seeking help in time of need," "Conviction" star Hilary Swank told CNN of 45-year-old Sheen, whose hit CBS series was put on production hiatus while he recovers.

"Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston echoed Swank's sentiment, and hopes Sheen takes his time to get healthy rather than rush right back to work. "No show is worth a man's health, and I hope he doesn't try to come back too early," he told CNN.

Dennis Haysbert, who worked with Sheen three times, tells the actor, "I love you brother; I know you're going to get yourself straight."

"Modern Family" star Julie Bowen agrees. "He's a survivor, he's a great actor, and I have no doubt that he’ll back," she tells CNN. "He’s like a cockroach that can survive anything — but a good cockroach."

For his part, Sheen, who had reportedly been partying before being rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on January 27 due to severe pain related to a hernia, says he'll be OK.

"I'm fine," he told RadarOnline in a text. "People don't seem to get it.... Guy can't have a great time and do his job also?"

    If the guy dies tomorrow he's had more fun than most people would have in ten lifetimes.

    Drug addiction is a disease and with any disease the support from family and friends is very important. He has to truly want to change his life for it to work. He is very talented and I hope he can recover. Hopefully, he realizes that there are only two outcomes to drug addiction, prison or death. Godspeed to you Charlie!

    Really hope CS can get himself together. We really don't want to see him follow River anytime soon. What a loss.

    if the sag people really cared about him they wouldnt be supporting him. he needs to stop taking drugs. not because it is illegal. he needs to stop for his own health .

    Charlie Sheen is the next Hugh Heftner of our generation and is slated to take over the Playboy mansion.
    It's in Hugh's will.

    Hopefully Charlie will not kill someone lower than his uplifted position of Hollywood royalty before his has to face reality and at least show some human qualities.

    Whats the difference between Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson? Mel's a Christian....Therefore no matter what Sheen does, the entertainment world will pander to him and make money off of his deviant behavior.....
