New York: Denise Richards has said that ex-husband Charlie Sheen’s wild behavior is just the status quo for the bad boy actor.
"This has been something I have dealt with for years. This is not a new situation," a newspaper quoted her as saying.
The actress said she wasn`t surprised by her ex-husband`s recent antics, which came to a head last month when he landed in the hospital after partying all night with porn stars.
"You know, this is Charlie`s lifestyle. He makes no bones about it...and it is what is," she said.
Richards, who has two daughters with the actor, says shielding them from their father`s behavior is a challenge and she wishes she could avoid.
"There are times where his life is more colorful than others, more public than others, and as the kids get older it`s a difficult thing," she said.
"I have never had to deal with this and this was a subject I had hoped to talk with my children about as they got older. But it`s hard," the actress added.
