Who is a star of the most popular comedy sitcom on TV, lost his place on that sitcom in one weekend, and has a rather unprofessional attitude? If you guessed Charlie Sheen, you would be correct. The man who plays a very charming character of himself on the hit TV show Two and A Half Men, is not such a charmer afterall. Not anymore, at least.
Sheen has recently dealt with numerous drug charges, and he also had more than one assault charge towards a woman since the 90s.
"I'm on a drug. It's called Charlie Sheen."
In the ABC News interview Tuesday night on March 1, Andrea Canning sat down with Charlie Sheen to discuss his latest dilemmas starting with his drugs woes and even going as far as bringing up his fathering skills.
Sheen wasted no time and made a rather absurd comment within the beginning minutes of the interview.
When asked by Canning if he was currently on any drugs, Sheen responded by saying, "I'm on a drug. It's called Charlie Sheen. It's not available, because if you try it once, you die. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over you exploded body."
This doesn't sound like something a person would say if they weren't on drugs, but to the viewer's surprise, Sheen had in fact taken a drug test that very day and it returned clean. However, it's arguable whether there are still lingering effects from previous habits.
He later responded to Canning, when asked how much drugs he was on the last time he used, "I don't know, man. I was banging seven gram rocks and finishing them 'cause that's how I roll."
Aside from his strange comments, Sheen appeared much older and tired in the face than he did in episodes from Two and A Half Men which were only shot months ago. If one were to guess, hard partying could be the reason behind his quicker physical aging.
He also showed many signs of being nervous, such as behaving like a chain smoker. He had a cigarette in his mouth the entire time through the last thirty minutes of the interview and it definitely was not the same cigarette. He seemed to get especially defensive, however, when his parenting was questioned.
When asked what he felt makes him a good dad, Sheen abruptly answered by saying, "Everything. Next question."
What father wouldn't want to brag on himself for raising five children? Truthfully, came off rather insecure towards the topic of his own children and parenting abilities. Ironically enough, his children were taken away from him the night this interview aired due to alleged threats made to ex-wife Brooke Mueller.
What will happen to Two and a Half Men ?
Sheen received his biggest fan base and fame boost ever from the hit comedy TV show Two and A Half Men which has sadly been forced to permanently go off air as a result of Sheen's behavior and ridiculous comments directed towards the show's producer, Chuck Lorre.
His comment on a radio show, which was called anti-semetic, made reference to Chuck Lorre's real name being Hebrew. He referred to him as "Heim Levine" since Chuck's real last name is Levine.
Jimmy Kimmel made note on an episode recently stating, "Two and A Half Men was the most watched show on television last night, and it was a re-run."
"I was banging 7 gram rocks and finishing them 'cause that's how I roll." -Charlie Sheen Though many people are sad to see such a funny hit go, it's obvious that Sheen is not in a healthy place in his personal life and that sort of problem can cause too much disruption for even the strongest cast.
What will become of Charlie Sheen? His father and dedicated fans are concerned with his health and state of mind, but Sheen seems uninterested in their "judgment" as he called it.
On Feb. 2, after Sheen hit the fan with drug charges, the outspoken and opinionated Joan Rivers made the comment stating, "I think he's an a--. When you have a child, you'd better start setting an example. I find it outrageous to be carrying on like that. I also think that when you get the gold ring, you have an obligation. The old studio system made you have an obligation to live a clean life and be the example. What am I going to tell my grandson who watches Two and Half Men? I just think he's awful."
Though his interview ended on a slightly lighter note with talks of getting in shape for an upcoming movie role, no one is to say how things will play out in coming months. With his children now out of his custody and his popular TV show coming to an end, he could head one of two ways: Straightening up his act, or continuing on this rollercoaster ride toward an eventual blacklisting in Hollywood.
