"I'm dealing with fools and trolls," says the star, with broadsides against women and even Thomas Jefferson
Has Charlie Sheen completely lost it? Or does the rest of the world, as he strongly suggests, need to just leave him alone?
In a pair of interviews Thursday, the actor went on profane, rambling rampages against Alcoholics Anonymous, party girls, his ex-wife, founding father Thomas Jefferson and, with particular vitriol, the man who created his hit show Two and a Half Men.
Summing up his reaction to those people – including his father Martin Sheen – who have suggested he has a disease of addiction, Sheen replies with an expletive.
“Bull—-,” he says on syndicated radio’s The Alex Jones Show. “I cured it with my mind It’s all good guys. Quit panicking. No panic, no judgment. You can kill me, but you do not have the right to judge me.”
Sheen, 45, went into a personalized, private rehab program in January after reported partying and a trip to the hospital. His CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men went into hiatus to give him time to recover.
Scheduled to return to the show Tuesday, Sheen says he’s completely sober, but makes it clear it wasn’t with the help of A.A., which he calls a “bootleg cult” with a 5 percent success rate.
“I’m so tired of pretending like my life isn’t perfect and bitchin’ and just winning every second,” he tells Jones. “I’m not perfect, and bitching and just delivering the goods at every [expletive] turn. Because look what I’m dealing with, man – I’m dealing with fools and trolls. I’m dealing with soft targets.
The actor gave the radio interview while vacationing in the Bahamas, bringing his estranged wife Brooke Mueller and two other women. Sheen says Mueller no longer was there, leaving him with the other women.
“Goodbye Brooke,” he says. “Good luck in your travels, you’re going to need it – badly.”
But while vacationing with the women – reportedly a model and a porn star – Sheen unloaded on other women he partied with in the days before he went into rehab, calling them “turds” and “losers.”
“There’s no reason to then bring them back into the fold because I have real fame – they have nothing,” he says. “They have zero. They have that night. And I will forget about them as the last image of them exits my beautiful home. And they will get out there and they will sell me and they will lose.”
At one bizarre point, Jones suggests Sheen sounded Jeffersonian, to which he quips, “I’m not Thomas Jefferson. He was a p—-y!”
But Sheen saves his strongest words for Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre, who recently joked about Sheen. Lorre professed to having a healthy lifestyle and said he’d be mad if Sheen outlived him.
Sheen says he didn’t find that funny, calling Lorre a “clown” whose real name is “Chaim Levine.” (His name is actually Charles Michael Levine).
“I embarrassed him in front of his children and the world by healing at a pace that this un-evolved mind cannot process,” says Sheen. “I’ve spent, I think, close to the last decade, I don’t know, effortlessly and magically converted your tin cans into pure gold. And the gratitude I get is this charlatan chose not to do his job, which is to write.”
In an interview with TMZ, Sheen continued to blast Lorre as a “stupid, stupid little man and a p—-y punk that I never want to be like.”
“That’s me being polite,” says Sheen.
In the radio interview, Sheen explains why he decided to be so outspoken.
“I’ve got magic, I’ve got poetry at my fingerprints,” he says. “Why give an interview when you can leave a warning. I’m not fair game. I’m not a soft target. It’s over. There’s a new sheriff in town. And he has an army of assassins.”
