Charlie Sheen is making headlines again after appearing on television Monday morning to talk about his recent reckless behavior, his sobriety and his show Two and a Half Men being canceled for the season.
In an exclusive interview on Today, Sheen says he never went to work drunk, and that he is underpaid and demands a raise.
Never once, never once. Never loaded, never drunk, nothing on set, no, he said about never showing up to work drunk. 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 said about getting sober on his own in his own house. He continued to call the founder of Alcohol Anonymous a broken down fool.
Sheen did confess on being on 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, he said.
The 45-year-old actor, who got $2 million per episode of Two and a Half Men said he wants a raise so that he earns $3 million per episode.
Everybody else will be begging me for their job back, he said of CBS's decision to end the season of Two and a half Men. After what they put me through ... I'm underpaid right now. Yeah, it's ridiculous. I'm tired of pretending like I'm not special.
He also spoke about his drug-taking days, saying, I'm different. I just have a different constitution. I have a different brain. I have a different heart. Dying's for fools. There's certain blends I will not entertain, because that's how people go down. I'm too smart to do that. I'm sorry for the guys that happened to, but you know, you should have read the directions before showing up at the party, you know?
Sheen, who says he is now drug-free, described himself as having Adonis's DNA, and tiger's blood in his veins.
On ABC's 20/20 Sheen also said that he would sue CBS for $300 million.
Wouldn't you? he said. I'm out of a job. I got a whole family to support.
