Sheen to Sizemore: I Feel Your Pain

What the hell was Martin Sheen doing in court for Tom Sizemore's sentencing today? Simple answer, really -- Tom's mom asked him to come.

After a judge sentenced Sizemore to 16 months in state prison for violating the terms of his probation, Sheen told reporters outside of Los Angeles County Superior Court that he identifies with Sizemore because he has, "experience with addiction in my own life and in my own family." And speaking of Charlie ... Martin added that Sizemore and Charlie are friends, and the only reason that Charlie didn't come to court with him today was because he's currently out of the country. Bummer.

Of course, a press conference regarding celebrities and addiction wouldn't be complete without an opinion on the Britneys and Lindsays of the world. Sheen's thoughts: "They ought to give thanks and praise that they're not facing more serious charges, like manslaughter."
