Earlier today, Charlie Sheen vowed to show up and continue filming Two and a Half Men, even though it was shuttered for the remainder of the season. But since a few hours have passed, Charlie Sheen has now managed to change his tune and give another attention-grabbing radio interview to Fox Sports’ Loose Cannons. Now the actor and apparent wordsmith says he never liked Two and a Half Men, anyway. Asked about the nonexistent HBO show he claimed was in the works, Sheen explained:
There are some talks about a thing that would give me the freedom to do something beyond the drivel that is this, I don’t know, this pukefest [Two and a Half Men] that everybody worships. I don’t know. I’m like, ‘Wow. That was another bad joke!
In case he hasn’t made it clear yet that he’s angry with the show’s creators, Chuck Lorre and Lee Aronsohn, he reiterated the point, and he said he won’t work with them anymore:
They kept getting up in my grill. They kept telling me how to live my personal life. I kept telling them, ‘Back off.’ But they wouldn’t and I’m the kind of guy who doesn’t hassle anybody. I kept asking for that respect and I couldn’t get it. These guys are a couple of AA Nazis and blatant hypocrites. I gave them my word so I would [finish the season] but not with the turds that are currently in place. It’s impossible. Can you imagine going back into the sludge pit with those knuckleheads at this point? I was a get-along guy for eight and a half years. I put $5 bil in the studio’s pocket. I put a half a bil in Chuck [Lorre]’s pocket. So, this is the fricking thanks I get? Dude, I should have been fricking walking in, handing out sandwiches, massages and shit. Yeah, I said it.
Oh, for the record, he says he’s not high right now:
Man, if you want to meet me for one of my workouts at 5 AM, you’re going to find out that smoking cocaine just does not fit into that snapshot. There’s no time for that right now. If you can get your hands on a drug that gets you higher than — I hate to say it — life, but just living in the moment and finally enjoying this life, then present that drug. I don’t think it exists.
But then, seeming to debunk that point, he said this:
Yeahhhh, [the Oscars] are probably a place I should avoid just because it might cause a little too much attention. But I don’t have a tuxedo that fits anymore because my chest and my biceps are too big.
Earlier today, Sheen also texted People magazine that this is only the beginning.
This is me warming up. They have awoken a sleeping giant. If I’m misunderstood after yesterday then people are worse off than I thought.
So if you’re a journalist with Sheen’s phone number, now’s the time! Everyone else, stay tuned.
