Sheen Opens Up About Jewish Roots

Just when The Shmooze thought he couldn’t come up with anything loopier, Charlie Sheen has managed to surprise us.

The former TV star - who was officially axed from “Two and a Half Men” yesterday - is now talking about his Jewish roots, two weeks after making headlines for comments widely criticized as anti-Semitic.

Speaking to “Access Hollywood,” Sheen said that his mother, Janet Templeton, is Jewish - a trait she shares with his most recent wife, Brooke Mueller.

“My mom is Jewish,” Sheen told the entertainment show in a phone interview. “Here’s where it gets confusing – we don’t know who her father was. But she is, in fact, Jewish. So, I guess that would make me Jewish, and my children Jewish. And Brooke, my ex-wife, is Jewish. So, I guess I should’ve rolled all that out, too.”
