Charlie Sheen has enjoyed a successful acting career, however in recent years things have been a little disastrous. Here is a glimpse of what his current life is like…
Charlie was a well known actor, but life looks different for him now.
He climbed to fame during his role in Oliver Stone’s Platoon.
The Oscar-winning 1986 war drama ‘Oliver Platton’ turned him into the talented actor.
When he was nine Charlie played the role of an extra in the renowned TV film The Execution of Private Slovik, alongside his father.
He began to focus on acting when he was expelled from Santa Monica High School where he landed a role in the never-released horror film Grizzly II: The Predator (1984).
During his adult years Sheen made his debut in the Soviet invasion thriller, Red Dawn.
He went from one success to another and even formed his own production company with Brett Michaels.
Another mainstream role he secured was in a sitcom, Two and a Half Men. Charlie made a whopping $1.7 million for each episode of the show.
Sheen’s private life was different to his on screen.
During the ’90s he began to get bad press during the trial of Heidi Fleiss when he served as a witness. Sheen confessed to spending an excess of $50,000 to purchase adult services from twenty-seven different escorts.
Charlie received a suspended sentence along with two years of probation.
His off-screen reputation wasn’t as successful as his private life.
In December 2009, Sheen was arrested for assaulting his wife, Brooke Mueller, where he spent thirty days in a rehab center.
At a later date he was arrested again for causing $7,000 of damages in an alcohol and drug-fueled frenzy.
Chuck Lorre, led Warner Brothers ceased production and banned Sheen from Two And A Half Men.
Ashton Kutcher joined the cast of the show as a replacement for Sheen later that year.
“After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen’s services on Two and a Half Men effective immediately,” the company statement read at the time.
During interviews, Sheen rambled about the fact that he drinks “tiger blood,” and is on a drug “named Charlie Sheen,” despite insisting he was sober during the time.
In 2012, he returned to the screens and landed a role on FX’s Anger Management.
It was here he revealed that he was diagnosed four years back, “It’s a hard three letters to absorb. It’s a turning point in one’s life,” he told Matt Lauer on the Today Show.
However more trouble followed.
At this point his acting work was stagnant.
He admitted to being in “dire financial crisis.” In a court document obtained by The Blast, the actor said he had “been unable to find steady work, and [has] been blacklisted from many aspects of the entertainment industry.”
However after seeing what he’s doing now, reactions have been coming in strong.
Sheen is selling personalized greetings for birthdays, anniversaries, and other celebrations through the Cameo website.
Which you have to admit is a lot different to is big-screen career.
Sheen says he finally got sober with tow year ago after being unable to drive his daughter to an appointment due to alcohol.
“It just hit me that I knew it was time to make a change – and you know, it didn’t require some crazy rehab stint or a shootout with the cops. It didn’t require anything super-dramatic and crazy and front-page news,” he said.
Sheen appears to be prioritising his health.
“To this day, I am not sure how I created such chaos and wound up in that headspace. It’s as though there was some alien or demonic possession going on,” he explained. “I try not to think too far down the line, you know? “I made some changes to give myself a shot to do some cool things professionally. And I’m proud of finally being consistent. And reliable. And noble.” For more on stars that are a far cry from their younger selves, scroll on…
