Charlie Sheen Told Matt Lauer the Whole ‘Tiger Blood’ Thing Was ‘Silly’


In a sit-down interview with Matt Lauer scheduled to run on Friday's Today, a post-roast Charlie Sheen attempts to give words to whatever it was that so gripped the world this past spring. Of course, in order to do so, he had to use some bombastic metaphors: "I don't really know what happened. It was one of those things where the planets were aligned, perfectly or imperfectly. I said some stuff and then it caught such traction globally and instantly that I couldn't really put out the fire ... It was like being shot out of a cannon into another cannon and then being just shot out of that one." The man formerly known as Warlock also admitted that his meltdown was sometimes "scary" (!) and that he's trying to reconcile with exes Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller. As for things he might have done differently in the past year, he said, "Just, I don't know, the tiger blood … it was so silly ... " It's true, Charlie — that was kind of a horrible thing to do to everyone. [Reuters]
