On September 3rd, 1965, in New York City, New York, Carlos Irwin Estevez was born. He began his career very young in 1974. He later became more serious in acting after his baseball hopes fizzled and he began to go under the stage name of Charlie Sheen.
Sheen’s resume is full of famous movies. He had a minor role in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. He had leading roles in movies like Platoon, Wall Street, Young Guns, Hot Shots!, The Three Musketeers, and Major League. He is also famous for television roles on Spin City and of course, his hit sitcom, Two and a Half Men.
Despite his on-screen successes, his personal life has not been as praised.
Sheen has been married to three women and linked to dozens more. He has five children as well.
In 1998, Sheen went into rehab after overdosing on cocaine and being hospitalized.
In recent years, Sheen entered rehab two more times, once voluntarily, another time due to a court order.
Now in 2011, Sheen’s problems are overflowing.
He has been hospitalized for stomach pains and then went into rehab one more time in his own home.
Sheen would go on to do a few television interviews that led to his show being put on hold due to CBS executives not being pleased with Sheen referring to Chuck Lorre, a CBS writer, by his Jewish name.
Sheen would also go on to say that he deserves to make at least three million dollars per episode of Two and a Half Men. He asserted that since the show was so successful, he deserved a bigger cut of the profits since he is unquestionably the star.
He would also open up about his daily cocaine habits and speak about how his brain works at levels that normal people cannot handle.
On Monday, Sheen was officially fired from Two and a Half Men.
But the question is, how real is all of this? While it is no secret that his personal life is not exactly angelic, can everything that is happening really be real?
It may appear that his personal life is crumbling and that he is potentially on the verge of complete self-destruction, but it is also true that right now, there is no name more popular than Charlie Sheen.
Whether he really is suffering terribly or if he is simply working the entire nation, his popularity might be about to get Sheen into position to capitalize and make more money than ever before.
This leaves us all wondering if Charlie Sheen is #Winning?
