Richard Adams, writing for The Guardian, has put together a piece focusing on the recent woes of actor Charlie Sheen and his outbursts of arrogance and insanity.
A few Sheen quotes, courtesy of the Guardian piece:
“I am on a drug, it’s called ‘Charlie Sheen’. It’s not available because if you try it once, you will die. Your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body.”
“I have a grandiose life. I embrace it… Sorry my life is so much more bitchin’ than yours. I planned it this way.”
“I’m tired of pretending like I’m not special. I’m tired of pretending like I’m not bitching, a total fricking rock star from Mars, and people can’t figure me out, they can’t process me. I don’t expect them to. You can’t process me with a normal brain.”
The makers of his sitcom Two And A Half Men have halted production and Sheen apparently plans to sue them:
“I’m insulted. I am confused. But these resentments, they are the rocket fuel that lives in the tip of my sabre.”
(As an aside, according to the article 15 million people watch Two And A Half Men every week. Why? All the clips I’ve seen have been mediocre at best and certainly not funny.)
Unsurprisingly, Sheen’s PR rep has resigned, presumably realising that his job is now impossible. Perhaps the most disturbing fact is that Sheen actively volunteered the information that one person who called him and offered support was Mel Gibson. Not really helping yourself there, Charlie.
