The embattled TV star Charlie Sheen continues to dominate the headlines with his latest installment of interviews on CNN's 'Piers Morgan Tonight', 'The Today Show' and celebrity gossip website TMZ. The 'Two and a Half Men' actor, who recently captured the fancy of the scandal loving celebrity observers with his rant on 'The Alex Jones Show', has now spilled on drugs, rehab and women.
Appearing on 'The Today Show' Monday morning, Sheen continued his offensive against CBS and demanded a raise for the postponed season of his show 'Two and a Half Men'. He also sought to stress that he never went to work drunk.
Never once, never once. Never loaded, never drunk, nothing on set, no, he said.
He also continued his attack against Alcohol Anonymous by calling the founder a broken down fool. He had earlier attacked AA while talking to Alex Jones.
On getting sober on his own in his own house, Sheen said, I closed my eyes and made it so with the power of my mind. I know my own truth and that's what I stand on right now.
Sheen also managed to rubbish the rehab reports with an at-home interview to TMZ. The 42-minute video posted on the gossip website shows Charlie Sheen speaking on drugs, children, his father Martin Sheen besides narrating life experiences, including the time when he woke up in the middle of downtown L.A. by himself when he was seven.
Sheen also ripped a false report that he checked himself into rehab, TMZ noted.
On his father, Martin Sheen, the star felt that his dad should stop passing judgment and acknowledge the fact that his son can make his own life choices.
Making yet another one of his signature controversial statements, 45-year-old actor said that he hopes his five kids ask him about all of the drug use one day, so that he can narrate all of the epic stories.
On 'The Today Show', Sheen confessed to indulging in one drug: Yeah, I'm on a drug. It's called Charlie Sheen! It's not available, because if you try it once, you will die. Your face will melt off, and your children will weep over your exploded body ... I woke up and decided, you know, I've been kicked around, I've been criticized. I've been this 'Aww, shucks' guy with this bitchin' rock-star life, and I'm finally going to completely embrace it, wrap both arms around it and love it violently.
Sheen also appeared on CNN's 'Piers Morgan Tonight', in an interview that has got the Brit interrogator bad reviews. Piers Morgan. known for his blunt statements, was found pussyfooting around the issues of Sheen, whom he introducted as a friend. To prove the prior history of being chummy, Morgan showed an image of himself and Sheen in ski gear in the slopes of Aspen, Colorado.
As the microblogging site Twitter was flooded with the criticism against Morgan's toned-down interview in the wake of the storm stirred by Sheen's bizarre behavior over the past week. The only news-worthy statement that Morgan managed to squeeze out of Sheen was on the topic of women.
Women are not to be hit - they're to be hugged and caressed, Sheen said, recalling an incident in which he admittedly injured a woman who was coming at him with a shrimp fork.
The statement also gains significance due to the much-publicized divorce between Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards. In a sworn declaration in the Los Angeles Superior Court, Denise had alleging that Sheen assaulted her and threatened her life during a December 2005 altercation.
Continuing the installments of interviews, Sheen is slated to talk to ABC News' Andrea Canning on a special one-hour edition of '20/20' Tuesday. This interview is set to put the spotlight on Sheen's statements on 'Men' creator Chuck Lorre.
CBS canceled 'Two and Half Men' after the actor's rant against Lorre on the radio program 'Alex Jones Show', during which he had called him a 'turd' and a 'clown'.
I was referring to Chuck by his real name, because I wanted to address the man, not the [expletive] TV persona, Sheen told TMZ referring to the instances of him using Lorre's birth name, Chaim Levine, during the interview stirring up accusations of anti-Semitism.
