Charlie Sheen: ‘I’m tired of pretending like I’m not bitchin’, a total freakin’ rock star from Mars’
When it comes to substance consumption, Sheen told ABC in an interview slated to air Tuesday that he’s on the exclusive Charlie Sheen drug, which is not for the faint of heart.
“Yeah. I am on a drug. It’s called Charlie Sheen,” Sheen said. “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. Too much?”
The actor, who recently went on a highly publicized drug binge which ended with him being carried from his house on a stretcher, told ABC that he is from another world.
“I got tiger blood, man,” Sheen said. “My brain….fires in a way that is…I don’t know, maybe not from this particular terrestrial realm.”
According to a Monday interview Sheen gave to NBC’s “Today Show,” he never once showed up drunk on the set of “Two and a Half Men,” which was halted last week after the actor’s heavily publicized radio rant in which he disparaged the show’s creator Chuck Lorre.
“Never once,” Sheen responded when asked if he’d ever been especially inebriated at work.
“You know, a little bit sideways…but never, never loaded, never drunk, nothing on the set, not, when I step between the lines it’s on…I’m [going to show others] how it’s done.”
Sheen clarified that he’s not an angry individual, but a passionate one.
“I’m not angry, I’m passionate,” Sheen said. “And that’s like, everyone thinks I should be like begging for my job back…I am just going to forewarn them that it’s, everybody else that’s going to be begging me for their job back. I’m a man of my word, so I will finish the TV show.”
Though he promises to finish out the “Two and a Half Men” series and “even do season ten,” he says his talent will now come at a higher cost.
“At this point because of psychological distress, oh my God,” Sheen said, waving his arms around and blinking. “It’s three mil an episode. Take it or leave it.”
Sheen, who said he makes “roughly” two million per episode, added that he’s currently “underpaid” compared to some of the other show employees.
When asked if he wants a raise, Sheen said, “Well, yeah, look what they put me through…I’m underpaid right now. If you look at the money they’re making, yeah, it’s ridiculous.”
Sheen said he’s fed up with being under-appreciated.
“I’m tired of pretending like I’m not special. I’m tired of pretending like I’m not bitchin’, a total freakin’ rock star from Mars,” Sheen said.
Sheen expressed some sympathy for those who can’t comprehend his ways, as it takes a complex mind to understand him.
“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,” Sheen said.
