Charlie Sheen: Still Drinking, Done With Rehab
Knowing what ultimately brought about his "Two and a Half Men" firing, how must FX feel about candor such as this?
Sheen might break his new employer's heart, but at least he'll apparently never lie about it. With his new comedy series "Anger Management" making its debut on the network this Thursday, Sheen announced during his "Good Morning America" review Monday morning that he's scaled the 12 steps for the final time.
When interviewer Elizabeth Vargas asked him if he still drinks, Sheen offered up, "Who Doesn't?" as if Vargas inquired whether his eyes opened when he awoke this morning. He also offered up a "shout-out" to "GMA" host Robin Roberts, who recently talked about her ongoing battle with a rare blood disease.
"I don't believe in rehab anymore, it's not for me," the 46-year-old actor told Vargas. "It's not a one-size-fits-all, and it didn't fit for me. We live in a country where it's always Miller Time. It's always happy hour somewhere in the wolrd!" As he has in previous sit-down chats, though Sheen made no bones about forsaking tee-totaling sobriety, he conceded once more that he hasn't always made the soundest decision possible in all situations. For example, he regrets calling "Two And A Half Men" creator Chuck Lorre a "Nazi" and "turd."
He added that he plans on "Anger Management" being his last significant acting foray for a while, as he transitions into "the job that matters most" of being a father to his five children: a grown daughter, twin sons with ex-wife Denise Richards and twin girls by ex-wife Brooke Mueller.
"I was vocal about people I shouldn't have been so vocal about," Sheen added. "I'm grateful we're able to sit here and talk about it. It is odd to look at the clips and some of the stuff and say, 'That was me.'"
