It’s not easy being wrong. And it sure has hell can’t be easy being Charlie Sheen – especially after the year he’s had. So just imagine how hard it must be for Sheen to admit just how wrong he’s been lately in his recent interview with Playboy. Sheen seems to have finally woken up from his crazy stupor and begun the long journey to repairing his reputation.
Sheen started his headline-making crusade last year, a few months prior to his being fired from his hit Warner Brothers and CBS sitcom Two and Half Men. The 46-year-old actor had started making strange comments, expressing himself in violent outbursts, and abusing alcohol and drugs with abandon. Sheen and the Two and a Half Men producer Chuck Lorre also engaged in very public sparring.
Lorrie actually posted the following statement last February, "I exercise regularly. I eat moderate amounts of healthy food. I make sure to get plenty of rest. I see my doctor once a year and my dentist twice a year. I floss every night. I've had chest x-rays, cardio stress tests, EKGs and colonoscopies. I see a psychologist and have a variety of hobbies to reduce stress. I don't drink, I don't smoke. I don't do drugs. I don't have crazy, reckless sex with strangers. If Charlie Sheen outlives me, I'm gonna be really p***ed."
One year later, Sheen simply has this to say about Lorre, “Here’s the good news. I’m not there anymore. I’m not working with CBS or Warner Bros. or Chuck anymore. Good news for them and good news for me.”
Recently, however, he admitted that a good deal of his ranting, raving, outbursts, and other strange behaviors were not entirely derived from his frustrations with the show.
“I don’t think it was the show in particular. It was the buildup of all the time I’ve been in the business, the divorces and everything. I started to unravel ... I was mad about having to play the game ... I finally just said the things I had always been thinking. But in the middle of a psychotic break.”
This is a huge admission from Sheen, and likely embarrassing after all of his talk of “winning” last year. No matter how bad things got, or how much of an ass he made of himself, Sheen was very insistent he was “winning.”
“I was in total denial,” Sheen admitted to Playboy. “It wasn’t that bleak in my head. I felt I was winning by finally being able to speak my mind. I felt that was some sort of victory. And then it was fueled by the insane public outpouring of support.”
Sheen offered up another white flag, admitting he unfairly verbally attacked his former co-star Jon Cryer and owes him an apology. After being fired from Two and Half Men, Sheene went on a public rant, calling Jon a “turncoat” a “traitor” and a “troll” among other things.”
“I whaled on him unnecessarily,” Sheen told Playboy. “He was trying to keep the sh-t together, trying to cover my ass, pick up the slack. He just got caught in the crossfire. He’s a beautiful man and a f-cking fabulous dude and I miss him. I need to repair that relationship, and I will. I will reach out and do whatever is necessary.”
It sounds like Sheen may be serious this time. Let’s hope so. When he is on this game, he’s a great actor and a fun guy to read about. Good luck with your comeback, Charlie; you have a long way to go, but you’re headed in the right direction!
