Sheen is widely known for his bad boy image, this due to an accidental overdose, two failed marriages and being listed as #2 on Maxim's "Top 10 Living Legends of Sex", citing an alleged 5,000 women that he has slept with.[1]

Sheen was born September 3, 1965 in New York City, the youngest son and third of four children born to actor Martin Sheen and artist Janet Templeton. Martin adopted his stage name in honor of the Catholic archbishop and theologian, Fulton J. Sheen, with Charlie also taking this stage name.[2] His parents moved to Malibu, California after Martin Sheen's Broadway turn in The Subject Was Roses. Sheen has two brothers and one sister, all of whom are actors: Emilio Estevez, Ramon Estevez and Renée Estevez. Sheen attended Santa Monica High School in Santa Monica, California, where he was a star pitcher and shortstop for the baseball team.[2] He also showed an early interest in acting, making several Super-8 films with schoolmates Rob Lowe and early best friend Chris Penn. Just a few weeks before graduation, Sheen was expelled from the school for poor grades and bad attendance.[3]

Sheen started acting in 1974 at the age of nine, appearing in a small role alongside his father in the television movie The Execution of Private Slovik. Sheen's film career began in 1984 with a role in the Cold War teen drama Red Dawn with Patrick Swayze, C. Thomas Howell, Lea Thompson, and Jennifer Grey.

Sheen was never notified by Stone, and only found out when he heard the news from his brother Emilio. Sheen refused to work with Stone again.[4]

It seems to me like 19 amateurs with box cutters taking over four commercial airliners and hitting 75 percent of their targets -- that feels like a conspiracy theory".[24] On October 27, 2007, his views on 9/11 were echoed by his father Martin Sheen.[29]

Charlie Sheen continues his public tirade against CBS, Warner Bros and Chuck Lorre, as his media blitz continues.

Here are some tidbits from what he's been saying.

""It's [the drug] called Charlie Sheen. 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."

"I'm underpaid right now. I'm tired of pretending like I'm not special. I'm tired of pretending like I'm not bitchin', a total … rock star from Mars."

During an interview with Piers Morgan on Monday, Sheen actually admitted that he could have approached things a different way: "Maybe I should have been a little quieter, a little softer."
