Charlie Sheen meltdown: tool or totally brilliant?

By Aisling | March 21 2011 | 31 Comments

It’s a funny thing about Charlie Sheen.  He was never that great an actor anyway – he has actually had very few big roles.  Associated with the Brat Pack of the Eighties, his contemporaries – Matt Dylan, Rob Lowe etc – went on to bigger and better things while Charlie’s career kind of stagnated.  Famous by association (Daddy Martin and brother Emilio Estevez) who both were actually working actors, Charlie concentrated on hell raising instead.

Until Two and A Half Men.  The biggest comedy in the States, Sheen was good in it because… well he essentially played himself.  A lazy arse who didn’t do much, sat around the house drinking and screwing himself stupid.  But sure now that he’s lost the run of himself he’s jacked in the whole deal.

So lets get this straight.  He’s paid $1.8 million PER EPISODE to play himself (the role is not taxing in the slightest) and get off with loads of gorgeous women.  What a flipping stroke of luck for a deadbeat.

But no, now he’s had a row with his producers and thrown all his toys out of the pram in the most public fashion possible.

And every day we get emails into from “plastic surgeons to the stars” in Hollywood urging us to warn our readers of the dangers of drinking and drugging and the effect it can have on your looks.  Because Sheen looks seriously terrible at the moment.

What do you think of the whole carry on?

    He is either very ill or a genius!!!

  • Anita says:

    He’s a total tool – but am loving the meltdown! That’s a mean thing to say I spose, but I don’t care! It’s totally crazy lala land stuff – has anyone seen the Youtube song? Hilarious

  • ince says:

    I heard he is doing a tour now! and it was sold out in 18 minutes- i’d say a remamrkable night out guaranted:) so somehow I think it is all a bit staged?

  • ince says:

    apologies for spelling mistakes, ladies..:(

  • MsSitting says:

    I think the quote is “I am on a drug. It’s called Charlie Sheen”. Tis the quote of the year for me.

  • ceci says:

    Ah he is a mentaller, I can’t believe how much he gets paid to be on that show, crazy. I have to admit the whole saga has been pretty entertaining, I’ve heard some suggest it is a Joaquin Phoenix stunt, you wouldn’t know.

  • xgirl says:

    Don’t know how much of it is put on, but feel a bit sorry for his kids and for his Dad, who seems to be fairly down to earth and normal.

  • Fee says:

    I felt really sorry for him initially as I thought for sure he would be dead within a few weeks, but then I thought that about Britney too! Now that he is milking it with the merchandise, tours etc I don’t feel too much sympathy for him. I think Britney is an absolute tragedy, as she is clearly being kept on the (not-so)merry-go-round by her handlers/crazy dad etc, but Sheen is an experienced guy who is choosing to exploit his mental illness/drug problems, probably for even more obscene profits than he was already making.

  • ams says:

    I think its a bit sad actually – mental illness is not a nice thing and that is clearly what he is suffering from.

  • Charlie Sheen is not that good of an actor, none of this is put on nor is it funny imo. He is sick and obviously needs help (which he’s obviously not ready for yet,) my heart goes out to all his family but especially his children. I can’t be easy seeing him like this.

    when i first watched the abc interview i thought it was the most hilarious thing ever! There are so many great quotes in it ‘I’ve one speed -go!’, ‘dying is for fools’ ;bi-winning’ etc. But now I think it must be a stunt – especially as he’s going on tour and has tshirts made up with his catch phrases on it.

  • PinkPanther says:

    Love him. Funniest thing I’ve seen in a long time. Amidst the madness he made a lot of good points and I can’t say I don’t envy his lifestyle.

  • SJP's Missing Mole says:

    He’s a misogynist gobshite.

    Seriously – read this:!5774374/charlie-sheens-history-of-violence-toward-women

    It’s unbelievably alarming, this guy’s history of abusing women and then blaming them for it.

  • sbb says:

    I think this “cooking” show was the funniest thing I’ve seen in a long time.

  • Brass Neck says:

    What an assclown. Serial abuser of women, and the idea that there are men out there who think he’s great makes me want to kill them all. I’d absolutely defriend anyone who thought he was “a great lad altogether”. He’s like some kind of hypersexual manic Charlie Haughey. Vomit.

  • misschievous says:

    He is an idiot and keeping the media machine busy until Mel Gibson has a revival of the crazies!

  • Kirstie says:

    tool. Wife-beating tool at that.

  • Gee Gee says:

    Oh my God, its sad to see the demise of people like this, and for their true natures to come out in public, not for him, but for his poor kids.

  • BerG says:

    Have to admit loving the car crash telly that was his public meltdown. However, now that a couple of weeks have past he just needs to go away and get help. Can’t believe the number of followers he has on twitter, over 2 million. There are a lot of deluded people out there.
