Charlie SheenPage 1 of 5    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
Seems like Charlie has been an accident waiting to happen for years now;

Sheen has a long history of being abusive to the women in his life. He allegedly shot actress Kelly Preston in the arm in 1991 while they were engaged. It was deemed an "accident" but since the engagement ended something serious happened between Preston and Sheen.

Also, in 1996 Charlie Sheen abused his girlfriend Brittany Ashland. The Los Angeles Times notes that he "pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor charge of battery with serious bodily injury." That domestic dispute involved Charlie causing Brittany to become unconscious when his violence knocked her to the floor.

Who would ever want to watch a TV show or movie with Charlie Sheen now? I would be thinking about how he has assaulted so many women who he supposedly loved. Love and violence don't go together. His character on 2 and 1/2 Men was always a bit shallow. Guess he can't tell the difference between life on a TV show Vs. Real Life.

before they quit, Charlie Sheen's PR people said "do not be misled by appearance. Appearance and reality can be as different as night and day" according to CNN. Well, right now Charlie Sheen appears to be a thug in his relationships with women. He appears to have a long, ongoing violent streak with women. He appears to have a rage problem.

Everything in the entertainment industry is publicity driven. There is no way for the general public to ever really know what these people are actually like personally or if any of the stories are true.
Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan, Brittany Spears.... et all. These people make their living by keeping the public's attention.
They may be 100 times worse than what's published about them, or they may be completely boring and mundane in reality.
We the public can never know for sure.

Do you think the court system in in cahoots with them and their self advertising?

No, but they might as well be.
Celebrities get off with extremely light sentences compared to what the general public would for the same offences. We have no way of knowing what sort of plea deals or agreements had been made behind the scenes.
Court appearances have turned into just another photo-op.

It's amazing what crimes celebrities can get away with.

One thing I have to agree with, is that some not-so-famous people get off easy too. I had to appear as a witness in court once, and while I was waiting, I saw a judge let off person after person with fewer fines than they were actually responsible for. One guy I remember, had been arrested for driving drunk with no license, and he had no license, because it had been taken away from him 6 months earlier, for driving drunk. The judge STILL didn't jail this guy, who obviously (to me) was completely incapable of making rational, responsible decisions.
I'm just glad Sheen doesn't live in Virginia. He's probably going to hurt someone else when his world crashes.

I do have a problem with him admitting to illegal drug use on a high level (no pun intended), and surely enough people have seen it, and yet he is never been in jail for this. Money talks and BS walks, as they say.

My real problem with Sheen is that he keeps making babies, and these freakshow women who marry him and make babies with him are just as disgusting.

He's Hugh Hefner, Jr. I can't imagine what's so hawt about guys that pay women to be with them, anyone with some cash can get hookers to be with them. It's their job.

Views will vary, I'm sure some people think Sheen's life is cool, personally I find him pathetic. I like the TV show, but it's always been Alan, Jake, Berta, and Rose who have been funny as hell, Charlie is there to make fun of, but I think Sheen thinks Charlie is the one people want to be. As long as you have wads of money, there will be hookers galore willing to pose with you and 'friends' pretending to care about you. In real life there's nothing sexy or charming about a middle-aged man who drugs & boozes himself into a stupor and has to be cared for like an invalid most the time.

A drug addict/alcoholic only gets better when they decide to change themselves and get clean, why would Charlie want to, he has loads of money, has paid "goddesses", plenty of drugs and alcohol to consume and a huge inflated ego. He never had to face up to his mistakes in the past or do much jailtime, he really thinks he is untouchable and unfortunately celebrity trumps law, so he gets off time and again. Now he is showing the signs of all that drug abuse over the years, the best thing the network could do is not give in to his demands and just cancel the show or replace him cause Charlie needs a hard dose of reality, it took that much for Robert Downey to clean up.

{quote]Or are you just jealous because he got to put his 1/2 Man into the tender, soft folds of porn star Bree Olson? Many times? In many, many different, varied positions? Including anal?{/quote]



Yes, we are all jealous because we can't get a drugged out old man to pay us for sex. Oh wait, I guess those of us who aren't hookers wouldn't want to go there.

Nice try though.

BTW, I think it was the Bree one, why did she look pregnant? She's skinny but with this quite round belly. I certainly hope not.

I think that may be the effects of an enlarged
liver or hepatitis.

People jealous- no. Just sad and sick this
trainwreck is playing out all over the place and
is unavoidable.

Because I'm nosy message 20. Nothing more, nothing less. Plus this mess includes very young children living in a home with heavy smoking, drugs, sex and hookers, just the kind of place where very bad things can happen to children.

As badly as you need to feel that woman who are not young hookers make us jealous, will not make it so. It is as transparent as you seem to think anyone thinking Charlie Sheen is a huge mess in a sad life, is just jealous. Jealous of what? I imagine very few good looking, sexy women that anyone would be jealous of, would not be with Charlie Sheen as one of his hookers.

But he is on the graph, only in his mind is he winning and only in his mind is he having a ball. Some of us know full well the life of someone like Charlie Sheen. I'm guessing it sounds really fun to have woman paid to do whatever you want them to do and have the money to do it, but this is a man who's fried his brain one too many times, is living a life he must not like all that much because he keeps getting married and having children then leaving and getting all flucked up to cover up his lack of ability to function in these relationships. He has settled for hookers and gets so messed up they have to watch his kids for him. Gee, what's wrong with this picture. When he dies or becomes a veggie, I'm guessing you will think that's cool too....live fast, die young.

That all sounded cool too when I was young in the 60s and living sex, drugs & rock 'n roll, it's not at all an attraction now. Most people learn from experience and mature, some think they are too special for rules or laws (Charlie should have been in jail long ago), until they kill someone or themselves, or their children...then it's all a sad tale of woe. Charlie Sheen is not a winning hero doing his own thing, he's someone who doesn't care and will hurt anyone who gets in his way and will whine till he's gone that he's being mistreated, that people don't understand him....blah blah blah. You can hear it all from any using addict from the gutter, you don't have to worship Charlie Sheen, any homeless druggie has the same story, they just don't have a rich daddy or a huge income.

Another sad thing, this is all on tape, people will show this stuff to his kids, they may grow up without him, as he may not live long, but they will know this crazy fool on film and have that as their roll model of what a father is. It's a shame that people like Charlie Sheen have innocent children and drag them through this disgusting mess. But Sheen is brain damaged by all this drinking and drugs, you can't keep it up and not be damaged, and he also doesn't care. So what if his children are effected/harmed, he's doing his own thing, he's Charlie Sheen, rich boy hell bent on being as big an ass as possible and thumbing his nose at anyone who disagrees or cares. The people who love him, to hell with them, he's Charlie Sheen, he has tiger blood.

Ever notice..... every few months, the media trots out some " crazy celebrity " to do stupid things in front of a camera.

It's a constant revolving door/soap opera of attention grabbing meaningless schlock.
The networks would rather spend expensive air time on Charlie Sheen, Lindsay Lohan, Brittany Spears, Michael Jackson, Paris Hilton...... over and over, endlessly, than cover the issues which really matter.
Six months from now, it'll be some other stupid actor sucking up attention on the morning TV shows.

WAKE UP.... there are things going on in this world which really affect your lives !
What don't they want to report on that they don't want you to think about ?

The media is the same, there have always been gossip spread around for social entertainment. Nothing new, just the technology changes over time.

While I agree with you on point, it's not the media's job to raise Sheen's children or keep them from harm, and they aren't going out of their way to take aim at his children, it's Charlie and his exes who are providing the damage these children are going through. And yes, they will see these things, it's on film, it's forever so to speak, but the results land directly in Charlie's lap.

It is the job of the news to report what's happening, hopefully with as little bias as they can, but that's their job. If we weren't getting news about crazy Charlie, people would be complaining about it being swept under the rug by money, and Charlie would be bytching to high heaven that he was being censored.

Japanese media? I have no idea what the Japanese report as news. What does that have to do with American's reading/reporting about Charlie Sheen?

When was there a time, in America, that gossip wasn't news? And why can't people read the news they are interested in, why would you want to rule the coverage to fit just want you want to see/hear/read? We have a mixed bag, go for what interests you.

I'm starting to wonder if there is a connection between acting and schizophrenia. Joaquin Phoenix went kind of weird. Mel Gibson. Val Kilmer. Marlon Brando. Method acting and schizophrenia?

Sheen makes me miss the old days when actors like his dad could freak out for a week in a hotel room and some combination of booze and genius filim making would create one of the best scenes in film history. Now it's all just talk show barf.

Simple...if you dont like charlie, turn off the TV.

Sheen's original name was shortened from Sheeny.


You mean "Carlos Irwin Estevez" right?

Sheen has totally lost it. If you watch the link Cheshire posted it's painfully obvious he's abusing drugs worse than ever. Marry a tree?

It's very sad, and I only hope someone steps in and helps him soon. He's surrounded by a bunch of ass-kissing yes men (and women), and they're all standing by watching him kill himself, but not before he completely destroys his reputation.

Very, very sad.

who cares?
i don't give a flying fish about charlie sheen's exploits.

obviously sex and drugs and ridiculous rants make him a happy man...for now.
if he wants to live in a drug induced fantasy land so be it.

surely there are far more important things happening in our world to saturate the media with...
or are we so fixated with watching the inevitable and spectacular demise of a fellow human being...sick!

On one hand, I'm rooting for Charlie Sheen because I believe he is right about his coworker dictating to him how to live his life. I think they overstepped their bounds and may, in fact, be in breach of his contract. As he stated, he only missed one audition and never a taping of the show in 177 episodes. In addition, anyone who has had an incident close to them portrayed in the media knows that they get it all wrong. I agree with the other posters who said you will never know what goes on in someones life by reading or watching the news. Other than Denise Richards (what little I know of her), none of Sheen's girlfriends were angels.

On the other hand, I realize that the drug use has affected him and he is not exactly acting in the most cautious manner (that a lawyer would like). And, he's probably going to continue using as crack is not exactly chocolate milk. He's got issues and he is a bad boy(at least he admits it), but he's also the highest paid bad boy out there. And, you can't deny that the people around him don't exactly care for his well being (no money means no porn stars). If Sheen was poor and not making billions for Warner and Chuck, you wouldn't be seeing any sensational headlines, and that is not lost on him, like it or not he did make that guy and the company rich.

Personally, I hope the guy succeeds and moves on to become better in the future. While it is hard to see millionaire Sheen as the little guy, when you compare him to Warner Bothers he really is the little guy.

P.S. His statements weren't anti semitic , he called the guy by his given name and he's right when he stated "If someone calls me Carlos Estivez does that mean they are anti-latino?" It's not a racial thing its a work environment issue.

I must be getting more callous each day but, since I don't know the man personally, I really could care less if he chooses to drink and drug himself to death, he's a grown adult. Would anyone at this point really be surprised to read of a fatal overdose?


I second that emotion; he's already out-lived The King (Elvis Presley) by about 3 years or so

so..good riddance ;)

guess the drugs are pretty hard on the body, I had always assumed (I guess from appearance) that Carlos (Charlie) was the OLDER brother & Emilio the younger but it seems Emilio is actually about 3 years older than Carlos..?

I care exactly as much about him, as I'm sure HE cares about me..or any other of the 'lesser' beings that form his fan base. (those not part of the 'chosen'; born with "Tiger Blood" running in their veins )

i.e. ZERO in case you needed help there

perhaps at least some of the the sympathy that so many people display towards a spoiled, bratty, wealthy, man-child CHOOSING to destroy himself could be better directed to some of the thousands of children around the world starving literally to death on a daily basis?

then again, perhaps not. Did THEY ever make a TV show to entertain us??

The best of Charlie Sheen (may he never die)

On drugs: “I am on a drug. It’s called Charlie Sheen. It’s not available because if you try it once your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body.”

On himself: “I’m tired of pretending I’m not a total ****in’ rock star from Mars.”

On drugs: “The last time I took drugs I probably took more that anyone could survive. I was banging seven gram rocks because that’s how I roll, I have one speed, go. I have a different constitution, a different brain, a different heart. I got tiger blood man.”

What tiger blood means: “It’s a metaphor for having absolute rocket fuel in my veins. When it comes to getting focused and delivering things in a way…”

On partying: “What’s not to love? Especially when you see how I party, it was epic. The run I was on made Sinatra, Flynn, Jagger, Richards and all of them look like droopy-eyed armless children.”

On why he's better than you: "You're dealing with a vatican assassin. Sorry. I'm a high priest vatican assassin warlock."

On erratic behavior: "You borrow my brain for five seconds and just be like dude, can't handle it, unplug this **stard. It fires in a way that is, I don't know, maybe not from this terrestrial realm. When you've got tiger blood and Adonis DNA, it's like, get with the program dude. You’ve been given magic, you’ve been given gold.”"

On people examining him as “bipolar” or manic-depressive: I’m “Bi-winning” Thanks Dr. Loser. The Earth is bipolar.

Why he likes to surround himself with porn stars (answered while smoking): They’re the ideal at what they do, and I’m the ideal at what I do, and together, IT’S ON! *blows smoke* "Sorry Middle America."

On how he drinks water: "I drink water through my eyes."

On himself: “I expose people to magic. I expose them to something they’re never otherwise gonna see in their boring normal lives and I gave that to them. I may forget about them tomorrow but they’ll live with that memory for the rest of their lives and that’s a gift man.”


Charlie just keeps on giving......

Holly - Charlie Sheen had a TON of potential - he turned into one of the "brat pack" and get involved with drugs and booze and porn stars - he IS the character he plays on Two and a Half Men.

Rent "Platoon" and see what he has managed to destroy, in destroying himself - I wonder what he could have become if he'd chosen his craft, over the lifestyle?

^^^ I would argue that his craft was a side affect of his lifestyle. The very nature of his craft is the conveyance of emotion. If you contend that, "he IS the character he plays on Two and a Half Men" then it follows, being the highest paid actor for that character (over any other I might add) is exactly what he would have striven to become, correct? It could very easily be argued he has reached perhaps greater than his full potential.

I understand your point, but given the facts I'm not sure it is correct in anything other than a moral sense. Morally you may consider his lifestyle wrong, but artistically you can't deny what he has accomplished which I believe is what you are trying to state.

This is the issue: You produce good work and then the people you work for want you to change to suit their needs, in addition to doing the good work you agreed upon.
(It's like signing a contract to have your roof done and then the contractor asking you for more money to do it, do you give it)

Perhpas I'm being a bit of a snob...his early, dramatic work was so good...and then he turned into a buffoon. Until very recently I did hold the opinion that his "Uncle Charlie" was just himself, but intensified for comedic effect...now I think "Uncle Charlie" was Charlie Sheen, subdued.
