So we guess the warlock has finally ran out of tiger blood. Charlie Sheen recently sat down with “Playboy” (fitting) to discuss his epic 2011 meltdown, referring to it as his “psychotic break.”
According to the man himself, built up anger towards show business was the blame for his mental unhinging. “I was mad about having to play the game – not that I was playing it well, but I’d been doing it for so long,” Sheen said. “I finally just said things I had always been thinking… but in the middle of a psychotic break.”
Sheen also said that, instead of drugs and partying, it was a Dave Chapelle sketch that caused him to be fired from “Two and a Half Men.” Says Sheen, “Remember that scene where he’s a blind white supremacist who doesn’t know he’s black? It’s the funniest thing in the world; it’s insanely brilliant. I had never seen it and laughed myself into a hernia…so there you go. Dave Chapelle cost me my job.”
The actor also claims to have seen ghosts of now-departed friends, including “Wild Orchid” writer Zalman King and the father of a close friend. “I’m not f**king high or experimenting with psychadelics and s**t,” Sheen said. “I just accept stuff like that and don’t try to figure it out. I saw these people, or ther spritis or whatever, for a reason. I don’t know what the reason is right now, but maybe it’ll be revealed some other time.”
Ohhhh-kay. Uh, that being said, Sheen’s new sitcom “Anger Management” premieres June 28th on FX.
