In the upcoming Rolling Stone issue, Charlie Sheen will be featured on the cover and discusses the rocky year he’s had.
During the interview Sheen says he was in “total denial” throughout the whole ordeal. He was not ‘winning’—a catchphrase he coined, along with ‘tiger blood.’
“Clearly, a guy gets fired, his relationships are in the toilet, he’s off on some f****** tour, there’s nothing ‘winning’ about any of that. I mean, how does a guy who’s obviously quicksanded, how does he consider any of it a victory? I was in total denial,” Sheen reveals in the interview.
Last year, Charlie Sheen was booted off the comedy series, Two and Half Men after he insulted producers to the press. Sheen’s personality doesn’t stray too far from his former character, Charlie Harper, a 40-something playboy with an affixation with hookers, drugs, drinking and excessive partying lifestyle.
Sheen hasn’t completely given up everything just yet. The star continues to consume alcohol. In the interview he states, “I mean, the shit works. Sorry, but it works. Anyway, I don't see what's wrong with a few drinks. What's your drink? Tequila? Mine's vodka. Straight, because I've always said that ice is for injuries, ha ha.”
In the interview, Sheen talks about his “mending relationship” with ex-wife, Denise Richards, “She and I are like best friends now…Confidants. She tells me everything. Sheen adds, “And we sleep in separate rooms. Everybody's going to want to know that, too.” And his foot fetish? “I've not dated girls because of their feet, just the length of certain toes and the shape of where things should be and they're not. Hammertoes are bad. And the second toe being too long? That's bad, too.”
At the hey-day of his downward spiral, Sheen had the opportunity to be on his own Comedy Central Roast. Russell Brand made fun of him by saying, “I've taped a bottle of Hennessy and a gram of coke under your chair…In case I start going crazy, just nick it and do a couple of lines. Release the tiger blood hero!”
Not all hope is lost for Charlie Sheen—he maybe ‘winning’ in some aspects; he will be starring in his own show on FX called Anger Management. According to NY Daily News, FX agreed to buy 90 episodes if it hits certain bench marks and could accumulate in wealth “up to $200 million” through syndication.
