Charlie Sheen has made millions as an entertainer on television and in the movies. He’s been idolized, pursued by beautiful women and hooked on drugs. The drugs and his success have convinced him that he can handle the drugs use. Sheen doesn’t even think he needs any help, he says he healed himself of the drug dependency.
Yesterday, Sheen claimed that he cured himself of a drug addiction with his mind. He bragged about his relationship with two girlfriends and called his relationship with them the “wedge”. It had been three women, but one decided to leave.
During this radio rant, Sheen expressed his anger that CBS decided not to shoot any more “Two And A Half Men” episodes because the administrators are jealous of the life he lives, so he told them to “go home to their lives with their ugly wives and ugly children”.
Sheen said he’s not willing to do “Two And A Half Men” episodes for $2 million dollars any more.
“At this point because of psychological distress,” he said., “It’s three mil an episode, take it or leave it! It’s like: everybody thinks I should be like begging for my job back, and I’m gonna forewarn them, it’s everybody else is going to be begging me for their job back. It’s how I roll, period, the end.”
As we’ve seen so many times in sports, money and fame aren’t the answers to everything. You can’t break all the rules and still succeed in the life.
Here are some of the other quotes?
“You borrow my brain for five seconds, and just be like, ‘Dude, can’t handle it, unplug this bastard.’ Because it fires in a way that’s you know, maybe not from this particular terrestrial realm.”
“I’m not bi-polar, I’m bi-winning. I win here and I win there”
I’ve seen athletes gradually let their success make them start to believe that they can do anything. They start to believe they have no limitations both on and off the field. Sheen seems to be losing it because of this attitude.
Do you think Sheen is a role model for teenagers, college kids? Is he headed off of a cliff? Why don’t people talk about him the way they talk about athletes when they go off the deep end?
Isn’t it true that teenagers look up to guys like Sheen, who are famous, rich and pursued by beautiful women?
