Wedding Bells for Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards

Jun 16, 2002 | 3:34pm EDT

Reformed bad boy Charlie Sheen married actress Denise Richards in Los Angeles Saturday night.

Sheen's father, actor Martin Sheen, attended the Catholic ceremony, which took place at the home of Spin City's producer, the couple's publicist told The Associated Press on Sunday.

Sheen, 36, and Richards, 30, were both outfitted in Armani. Richards wore a white satin gown and crystal beaded jacket.

The couple started dating last year, and Richards reportedly moved into Sheen's Los Angeles apartment after they spent a romantic holiday together in Hawaii.

The two co-starred as lovers in 2001 romantic comedy Good Advice, and Richards later guest-starred with Sheen on the sitcom Spin City. They also shared credits in the 1993 parody National Lampoon's Loaded Weapon 1.

Richards is currently starring in Undercover Brother.

This will be Richards' first marriage (she was previously dating her Starship Troopers co-star Patrick Muldoon) and Sheen's second.

In fact, Sheen has quite a reputation when it comes to the ladies. He was engaged to actress Kelly Preston in 1990 and was briefly married to model Beverly Peele in 1996. He also dated porn stars Ginger Lynn Allen and Brittany Ashland (whom he was charged with assaulting in 1996).

The actor also revealed under oath that he had spent more than $50,000 on call girls during the infamous investigation into Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss in 1996.

That same year, Sheen attempted to clean up his act and announced he had "found God," but his reformation was short lived: the actor suffered a drug overdose and was sentenced to a drug and rehabilitation clinic two years later.

Sheen finally ended his probation in 2000 and found a home on Spin City as Michael J. Fox's replacement. The show, however, was canceled last month.

He has a 16-year-old daughter with his former high school sweetheart Paula Profitt.
