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’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

    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?

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

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