Charlie Sheen (born Carlos Irwin Estévez, 3.9.1965)
Charlie Sheen is an American actor who rose to fame in the 1980s with films such as Platoon and Wall Street.
Childhood: Charlie Sheen was born in New York City, to the actor Martin Sheen and his partner, the artist Janet Templeton. Martin had adopted the stage name of Sheen, after the Catholic theologian Fulton J. Sheen. Charlie then copied his father's stage name when he took up acting. The family moved to California and Charlie attended Santa Monica High School.
At school, Sheen showed a keen interest in both sport and drama. He was friends with fellow actors Rob Lowe and Chris Penn and would make Super-8 films with them. Charlie Sheen did not graduate from high school, as he was expelled shortly beforehand, for his low grades and lack of attendance.
His brothers, Emilio Estevez and Ramon Estevez and sister, Renée Estevez are also actors.
Acting Career: Charlie Sheen's earliest foray into acting was at the age of nine, when he appeared in the movie The Execution of Private Slovik with his father in 1974. 10 years later, he landed a role in Red Dawn alongside Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey. Two years later, Sheen and Grey would appear on-screen together again in the cult hit Ferris Bueller's Day Off. The film was directed by John Hughes, who also directed The Breakfast Club and Pretty In Pink.
Charlie Sheen's breakthrough role came in 1986, when he starred in Platoon, a drama about the Vietnam War, which also featured Willem Dafoe and Johnny Depp. Sheen's next movie was a return to sharing the screen with his father, as he had done as a child. Wall Street, like Platoon, was directed by Oliver Stone. The film detailed the greed and excess of young stockbrokers and starred Michael Douglas and Daryl Hannah.
Oliver Stone was due to cast Charlie Sheen in a lead role in Born on the Fourth of July. However, without telling Sheen, he re-cast the role with Tom Cruise. Sheen's brother, Emilio Estevez broke the news to him and as a result, Charlie Sheen refused to ever work with Oliver Stone again.
In 1987, Charlie Sheen appeared in Grizzly II: the Predator, a low-budget horror movie. The following year, he starred alongside his brother Emilio, as well as Keifer Sutherland, in Young Guns and in 1990, the brothers worked together again on Men at Work. That same year, he also worked with Clint Eastwood in the cop film The Rookie.
Charlie Sheen's first attempt at screenwriting came in 1997, with Discovery Mars, which went straight to video and focused on the question of whether or not there is life on Mars.
In 1998, Sheen starred in an action movie entitled No Code of Conduct, which was directed by Bret Michaels.
Following this action movie, Sheen worked in a string of comedy films, including Money Talks and Hot Shots! which was a spoof of films like Top Gun and also starred Lloyd Bridges. In the 1999 film Being John Malkovich, Charlie Sheen plays himself. The Spike Jonze-directed film also stars John Cusak and Cameron Diaz.
After appearing in the horror spoofs Scary Movie 3 and Scary Movie 4, Sheen worked on a number of TV shows. Firstly, he was cast to replace Michael J Fox in the sitcom Spin City, which ended in 2002. The next year, Charlie Sheen started playing Charlie Harper in the popular CBS comedy show Two and a Half Men, which frequently referenced Sheen's real-life 'bad-boy image'.
In 2008, Sheen took on the role of Dex Dogtective in the animated comedy Foodfight.
Personal Life: Charlie Sheen has a daughter, Cassandra Estevez (b.1984) with his former partner Paula Profit.
In 1990, Charlie Sheen was engaged to Kelly Preston. However, their relationship ended shortly after he shot her in the arm, causing a minor injury that required stitches.
In 1993, Sheen testified at the court trial of the notorious Hollywood madam Heidi Fleiss. It was revealed that Charlie Sheen had spent over $50,000 on prostitutes.
In 1995, Charlie Sheen married Donna Peele. The marriage only lasted one year. In 2002, he married the actress Denise Richards and they have two daughters, Sam Sheen (b. 2004) and Lola Sheen (b.2005). Four years later, they, too were divorced. Sheen then went on to marry Brooke Mueller the couple have twins named Bob and Max (b. 2009)
Sheen was interviewed in depth by Piers Morgan at a London theatre this weekend.
Charlie Sheen is adamant that he has not infected any of his sexual partners with HIV since his diagnosis.
The controversial actor, 50, was asked about his sexual history in a frank interview with British journalist and commentator Piers Morgan in a one-off show, ‘An Evening with Charlie Sheen’, at London’s Theatre Royal Drury Lane on Sunday evening (June 19th).
Sheen went public with his HIV diagnosis in November 2015, but confirmed that he had been diagnosed a number of years before that. Morgan directly asked him whether he had had unprotected sex since discovering his HIV positive status, which he denied.

The 'Two and a Half Men' star has been "listed as a suspect" in an investigation conducted by the LAPD's threat management unit.
Los Angeles police are reportedly investigating threats of violence made by the actor Charlie Sheen, among others, against an unnamed victim.
The Los Angeles Police Department told E! News on Wednesday (March 6th) that the 50 year old was “listed as a suspect” in an investigative report completed on March 31st. The probe is ongoing by the LAPD’s threat management unit, and the victim’s identity is officially confidential, but officers have served search warrants in connection with the investigation, according to LAPD officer Mike Lopez.
Representatives for the ‘Two and a Half Men’ and ‘Anger Management’ star have not commented about the new reports at the time of writing.

Sheen says his income has dropped significantly in recent years.
Actor Charlie Sheen has asked courts to reduce the amount of child support he pays to ex-wife Brooke Mueller for the former couple's twins, Bob and Max. According to court documents obtained by People, Sheen currently pays Mueller $55,000 as part of their 2011 divorce agreement.
Charlie Sheen is asking for his child support payments to be reduced.
In the papers Sheen states that his child support payments should be reduced because his income has decreased dramatically from when the agreement was originally made. Back in 2011, Sheen was earning $613,000 per month for comedy 'Two and a Half Man', before his departure.
Because promotional tours don't always run smoothly.
Sometimes it's not all that easy to be a superstar and have to sit through hours of promo for long periods of time, and sometimes it's not all that easy to get these celebrities to open up. Questions are sometimes inflammatory, arising in some angry parties and a lot of entertainment on YouTube the next day. Quentin Tarantino is often the subject of extremely uncomfortable interview sessions and it's no different with 'The Hateful Eight', but here's some of the most awkward interviews from TV history.
Remember Tarantino's painful Channel 4 interview?
Quentin Tarantino: 'I'm shutting your butt down!'
We might as well start with Tarantino, however. When controversial Channel 4 reporter Krishnan Guru-Murthy asked him to speak about violence in his 2013 movie 'Django Unchained', he wasn't having any of it. It was a touchy subject that he'd talked about many times before, so it was no wonder he didn't want to repeat himself. Guru-Murthy is also known to have irked a number of other celebrities including Robert Downey Jr..
Charlie Sheen made his revelation earlier this week
Actor Martin Sheen has praised the courage of his son Charlie after the Two and a Half Men star publicly announced he was living with a HIV positive diagnosis. In Florida for an event, the Naples Daily News reported how the 75-year-old father spoke of the pride he felt after Charlie’s revelation.

Sheen Snr said: "He had been leading up to this sort of story for several months and we kept encouraging him to do it.
Sheen took it upon himself to denounce his ex-wife and mother of two of his children in a bilious Twitter rant on Father's Day.
Despite being a parent to five kids, it looks like Charlie Sheen didn’t have a particularly good Father’s Day. He spent a good part of Sunday tearing into Denise Richards via Twitter, describing his ex-wife as the “worst mom alive” and as “landfill rash”. You stay classy, Charlie.
“Denise Richards is a shake down piece of s*** doosh phace & worst mom alive!” Sheen ranted. “[A] despicable charlatan who sux ISIs ass!!!!” So many [sic]s there it’s barely worth bothering.

An extract of Jon Cryer's autobiography has been released and it details some very interesting, if not somewhat disturbing, incidents from Cryer's experience working with his former 'Two and a Half Men' co-star, Charlie Sheen.
Jon Cryer's autobiography, So What Happened?, is due to be released on April 7th. Fortunately for us, some of the most interesting sections have been pre-released and they largely concern the antics of Cryer's former Two and a Half Men star, Charlie Sheen. 49-year-old Cryer's depiction of Sheen is similar to how he is depicted in the public eye: wild, controversial and frequently embroiled in unusual relationships.
Jon Cryer's autobiography will be released in April.
49 year old Cryer kept professional and quiet during the Sheen sacking controversy four years ago, but his new memoir reveals all.
Charlie Sheen’s antics over recent years have become the stuff of legend, but one of the closest people to him kept largely quiet about what it was like to work alongside him. Until now.
Sheen’s ‘Two and a Half Men’ co-star Jon Cryer, except for a small handful of interviews, has never spilled the beans on what it was like to be around him on a daily basis, wisely choosing to quietly get on with his job and earn millions of dollars as part of the wildly popular comedy.
Selected excerpts from Jon Cryer's new memoir reveal what it was like to work with Sheen
Despite months of speculation, the 48-year-old chose not to appear in the finale of the beloved sitcom, but why?
Even though Charlie Sheen's beloved character Charlie Harper died on the CBS sitcom 'Two and a Half Men' in season 9, many fans were expecting the controversial actor to make a surprise return on Thursday night (Feb 19th) as the show aired its final episode, but he was nowhere to be seen.
Sheen chose not to appear in the sitcom's final epsiode
Sheen, who was famously fired from 'Two and a Half Men' back in 2011 by its creator Chuck Lorre, was eventually replaced by Ashton Kutcher's character Walden Schmidt for season 10, has hinted in the past several months that he will be making cameo appearance in the sitcom's last ever episode.
