Charlie Sheen: I Wasn’t Winning, I was In DenialBy: Chris Gabbard - June 6, 2012
Interviewing in the Rolling Stone (also featured on the cover), Charlie Sheen says that his “winning” period following his boot off of Two and a Half Men was more like “total denial”.
“Clearly, a guy gets fired, his relationships are in the toilet, he’s off on some fucking tour, there’s nothing ‘winning’ about any of that. I mean, how does a guy who’s obviously quicksanded, how does he consider any of it a victory? I was in total denial.”
Although he admits that “winning” and claiming to be filled with “Tiger Blood” were probably not his best moments, he is still not giving up on his old habits, and still not apologizing for it.
“I mean, the shit works. Sorry, but it works. Anyway, I don’t see what’s wrong with a few drinks. What’s your drink? Tequila? Mine’s vodka. Straight, because I’ve always said that ice is for injuries, ha ha.”
Ex-wife Denise Richards also speaks in the interview, saying the two of them have made amends: “He and I are like best friends now — confidants. He tells me everything.” Sheen adds, “And we sleep in separate rooms. Everybody’s going to want to know that, too.”
Sheen will star in “Anger Management”, coming to FX this summer.[source: Rolling Stone]
