Charlie Sheen spoke about his epic meltdown last year, bluntly calling it a “psychotic break.”
Sheen lost his prized Two And A Half Men gig for going on a booze- and hooker-fueled bender and then ripping his bosses when they asked him to tone it down.
“I started to unravel,” the New York Post quoted Sheen as telling Playboy magazine. “I finally just said things I had always been thinking. But in the middle of a psychotic break,” he said.
As he was partying and shooting his mouth off, Sheen said he never anticipated losing his job or becoming a national punch line for out-of-control behaviour.
“Yeah. It was surreal,” Sheen, who is making his TV comeback on FX’s Anger Management, said. “And it never occurred to me where this was going to end up or how it was going to be perceived,” he added.
With a year to look back, Sheen said he can laugh at it all, especially all the terms he coined for 2011 pop culture, such as “winning,” “goddesses” “tiger blood” and “warlocks.” “It’ so f--king stupid. I’m in a beef with a warlock society? You’re kidding me, right? How do you go from making Oliver Stone movies to being in a feud with warlocks?” he said.
