Last night, Sharon Stone spoke to "Extra" at the CNN Heroes event in NYC, where she showed support for Charlie Sheen after his HIV announcement.

Stone, who was a presenter, has worked tirelessly to help raise nearly a half billion dollars for AIDS research through her work with amfAR saying, "We are grateful that he is discussing this in an open way and that he's proud to discuss it, available, and talking about it intelligently."

The AIDS activist also explained how amfAR contributed to creating the medications that Charlie is taking to stay healthy, "We at (amfAR) gave the money to the scientists that developed the majority of the drugs that are in the market today and the drugs that Mr. Sheen is taking. You can see because he's been on them for four or five years that they are successful drugs and that he is doing well on them. We are grateful that he brought his doctor on and talked about them in such intelligent and thoughtful ways, that his doctor was there talking about the pros and cons of his lifestyle."
