Denise Richards, Charlie Sheen


Her marriage to Charlie Sheen may have ended in divorce, but Denise Richards insists their relationship is better than ever.

"In the last few years, things have gotten really great with us," the actress said during an appearance on HuffPost Live Tuesday. "We're very close and we're good friends, which is great because it's great for our kids."

Richards added that it was, of all things, Sheen's split from his other ex-wife, Brooke Mueller, that helped bring them closer together.

"This is awful to say, but it's true. When his third marriage started to fall apart, he and I started to become friendly," said Richards.

"From day one, I've always wanted to keep the kids a priority and suck it up for them, but it takes two people to do that. He sees the benefit, too, that when we get along, it's good for the kids. It's not fair to them to be around parents who can't stand each other."

Speaking of Mueller, Richards was recently granted temporary custody of Sheen's twin boys, Bob and Max, while their mother continues to be treated for addiction to prescription drugs.

Richards and Sheen themselves have two children together, daughters Sam and Lola.
