Gary Busey: I'm praying for Charlie Sheen

You know you may be in serious trouble if Gary Busey starts worrying about you.

"Charlie is in a tailspin," the former Hollywood bad boy tells PEOPLE of the recent behavior of Charlie Sheen. "Charlie's got to understand what the truth is. The beautiful thing about the truth is that it requires no questions."

Speaking at Las Vegas's Surrender nightclub at the launch party for "Celebrity Apprentice" on Saturday, Busey says he's known the "Two and a Half Men" star for 30 years.

    I am agnostic, but when anyone in liberal hollywood tries to be self righteous and religious it really makes me laugh.

    "Truth requires no questions?" I never knew we mankind were that good and smart. Truth must be revealed, questioned, quested after, found, acknowledged, possessed and brings healing, peace and freedom. Jesus is the Truth.

      "Jesus is the Truth."

      Writers in The Old West, would embellish the deeds of gunslingers, to make them more exciting. Larger than life.

      The Gospel writers, did this for Jesus. Jesus in no more the truth, than is any other myth.

    It's funny that I was just telling my husband how Charlie is saying the strangest things, like Gary. The difference is that Gary actually seems like a nice guy that isn't out to harm anyone, no matter how strange he is.

    I think Sheen should be praying for Busey, man Sheen has a lot more drugs left to do to be as messed up as Busey.

    Charley need some serious help. I saw a doctor on tv the the oher night. and he said. the damage done ftohis body from that last time, probably would not obstain him, if he does that again. The man is gonna kill himself, all the while bragging about how tough he is. Yet, there are people thinking he is the greatest!
    We'll, all I can say, is he better get off the drugs and the wild life. He has kids. How they gonna feel about all this, as they get older.

      > Charley need some serious help. I saw a doctor on tv the the oher night. and he said.

      Yes, because the opinion of a doctor who has never seen or tested Charlie Sheen is and accurate analysis.

    I find it telling that even Gary Busey is worried. I mean he's also an old pro. He didn't say anything other than the truth or overly negative. The truth Charlie Sheen needs to realize is that its already a miracle he's not dead. Benders are okay you know, if that's what you want, a lot of people argue he's not doing anything wrong to anyone, just enjoying himself, but he's also a grown man and needs to remember to keep it professional where work is concerned (benders cost $$$) and keep his affairs private. I know a lot of regular people who are crazy and also go on some benders but manage to not destroy their lives in the process.

      Relying on Gary Busey for sane, rational and objective analysis of a situation is like relying on a cup of yoghurt to give you insight into brain surgery.

    Dear God, please take Charlie Sheen and his oversized ego back into your loving arms as soon as possible. Also, could you please let me win the lottery and wipe all Republicans off the face of the earth?

    Thank you God.

    Give me a break like Busey is any less crazy than Charlie Sheen. Charlie Sheen is awesome and is living his life the way he wants to live it. If you like Charlie Sheen as much as I do check out the website http://www.getyoursheenon.com

      Oh Satanic DEA, please let Charlie Sheen have more drugs. Amen.

      I believe his creativity is being stifled. Lot's of control freaks wanting to take over his life instead of allowing his creativity to shine. They're beating him down because he's the creativity and they're the egos out of joint, too much!

      Hang in there Charlie, tell the devil to get behind you. You have that power in our Lord, Jesus Christ.
