HOLLYWOOD star Charlie Sheen jetted into Ireland over the weekend and paid a typically wacky tribute to the Irish and Jesus Christ.
Sheen arrived in Dublin on Saturday and wasted no time in winding up his hosts. After landing at Dublin Airport, he tweeted his nine million followers: "In an Irish blackout we bring the love and (NkAge-style) Bitchen-Ah-noo, to the land of Green Gluiness (SIC) and Blarney Ferrills! #WHAT?"
He followed that up by jokingly posing in his now renowned madcap way in a crucifixion like stance in his hotel room, mimicking Jesus on the cross with the message: "And on the 1st night Jesus saved Ireland #emasculated misconception."
Staying at the Four Seasons Hotel in Dublin, there was no sign of the actor yesterday. Rumours had it that the 47-year-old had been spotted in the company of former Guns'n'Roses guitarist Slash in Temple Bar on Saturday night.
But the LA-born musician had been elsewhere, dining with friends in Marco Pierre White's restaurant on Dawson Street.
However, the three-times divorcee was in Dublin for the LA musician's two shows at The Olympia, the first of which took place last night.
He posed for pictures as he arrived at the gig with girlfriend Georgia Jones. The 24-year-old is an adult film actress who has starred in over 100 movies. She reportedly began dating Sheen last October.
Slash – whose real name is Saul Hudson – took to Twitter over the weekend to pay tribute to one of Ireland's icons: "Rory Gallagher would have been 65 today; Happy Birthday Rory! Fitting time to be in Ireland."
Speaking to the Irish Independent, Gallagher's brother, Donal, said he was "delighted" with the tribute.
"I'm knocked out by this but Slash has always been a good guy. He once jammed with Rory at a show he did in The Roxy in LA in 1991. Rory spotted Slash in the crowd and got him up for a few songs," Donal said.
Rory Gallagher released 10 solo albums before his career was cut short when he died of liver complications in 1995.
