Charlie Sheen brands Russell `genius one`

London: Russell Brand has revealed that Charlie Sheen has given both of them clever pet names – Genius One and Genius Two.

The duo bonded last year when Sheen was in meltdown after being axed from US TV show ‘Two And A Half Men’.

“I got an answerphone message, ‘Brand. Genius One. This is Genius Two’. I thought, ‘This is crazy’,” the Sun quoted him as saying.

“There were instructions to go to his house. There was him being Charlie Sheen – which was out of control – sat with a bunch who looked really on the edge.

“I think he’s super-cool and he’s funny as f***,” he added.
