Charlie revealed that in recent months he has had two eerie encounters that he cannot explain.

He said: "When my friend (writer) Zalman King died, I went to comfort his widow, Pat. We were making a toast and I saw Zalman, who'd been dead for four hours, dance through the background. It was a trip."

He continued to tell Playboy magazine: "Another dear friend of mine, Stephanie, her father died. I was at her house, and he walked past me on the stairwell one day... I know it was him.

"I just accept stuff like that and don't try to figure it out. I saw these people."

The former 'Two and a Half Men' actor recently claimed he gave Winona Ryder her stage name.

He said he was listening to psychedelic band The Doors with the actress - who's birth surname is Horowitz - when he was inspired to give her a new moniker.

He told US TV show 'Centerstage': "We were listening to The Doors, to 'Riders on the Storm.'
