Biography

Charlie Sheen is an actor who is best known for films like Major League and the Hot Shots! franchise. On TV, he easily became a household name first for playing Charlie Crawford on Spin City and then as Charlie Harper on Two and a Half Men.

The youngest son of actor Martin Sheen, Charlie made his movie debut when he was nine years old in his father's project, The Execution of Private Slovik. Since then, he became active in the big screen where he often landed roles with a "bad boy" image. His other credits include Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Lucas, The Boys Next Door, Platoon, Wall Street, Young Guns, The Rookie, The Chase, Being John Malkovich and the Scary Movie franchise.

After appearing on Spin City from 2000 to 2002, Sheen moved on to star on the CBS comedy Two and a Half Men in 2003. He earned numerous awards for playing a bachelor-playboy character that is loosely based on him. His character, however, was killed off during the ninth season of the show due to his substance abuse problem and public derogatory comments about the series creator and producers. Consequently, he was replaced by Ashton Kutcher.

Sheen's dismissal from the award-winning CBS series isn't the only controversial aspect in his life. He also has a colorful love life as he's already been married three times and has five children. In the past, Sheen accidentally shot his fiancee Kelly Preston in the arm, dated adult film actresses, and had highly publicized divorce and custody battle over his children with ex-wives Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller.

In 2012, Sheen landed the lead role on the FX TV series Anger Management, playing the role originated by Jack Nicholson in the film.

Quotes

"[Studios] won't hire you, even though you screwed the same !$#!#s and ate the bullet for it. Yet they pull you aside at a party and say you're their hero for the things you do." [Variety (August 14, 1997)]

"This is like a sober acid trip" (his reaction to winning the Golden Globe Award!)

"Usually in a battle sequence when a bomb is going off, you forget you're acting."

"I don't think it's wise to dwell on regret. There's regret, sure. But whatever you've done good or bad, is a part of who you are now. That's the thing you can change and improve."
