Biography

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)

The adult actress, who also goes by Scottine Ross, was issued a temporary restraining order against Sheen earlier this month (Apr16) following allegations the former Two and a Half Men star had threatened her and been violent. A week before, she had reported an alleged altercation between her and her ex, from whom she split in 2014, to Los Angeles police officers.

"Ross has no evidence whatsoever that Sheen made the alleged threats," court documents obtained by The Hollywood Reporter read. "Sheen has repeatedly disputed and denied Ross's prior allegations of abuse. Most importantly, Ross has not had any contact with Sheen in over a year and has no reasonable basis to seek the requested relief."

Charlie Sheen Heading To Arbitration Over Ex-fiancee's Lawsuit


Charlie Sheen

The Two and a Half Men actor was sued by former porn star Rossi in December (15), when she filed documents accusing him of assault, battery and intentional infliction of emotional distress after he allegedly failed to disclose he was HIV-positive before they had unprotected sex.

However, the case has hit a snag over a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) Rossi signed when they first met in 2013, and the papers include a mandatory arbitration provision.

Charlie Sheen Out In Beverly Hills

Charlie Sheen - ****File Photo** CHARLIE SHEEN has revealed he was diagnosed with HIV four years ago. Earlier this month (Nov15), reporters at Britain's The Sun newspaper claimed a "major Hollywood star" was suffering from the disease, and provided clues to the celebrity's identity. Charlie, 50, has now come forward and admitted he does have the disease during a candid interview on U.S. morning show Today on Tuesday (17Nov15). He also confessed he found out about the health diagnosis in 2011 when he visited the doctor thinking he had a brain tumour. He told host Matt Lauer,"I am here to admit that I am in fact HIV positive, I have to put a stop to this onslaught of attacks and of sub truths and very harmful and mercurial stories that are about me threatening the health of so many others that couldn't be further from the truth." When asked how he was diagnosed, he replied, "Four years ago. It started with a series of cluster headaches, migraines, sweating the bed... I thought I had a brain tumour, I thought it was over, after a battery of tests, spinal taps... they walked in the room and said this is what's going on. It's a hard three letters to absorb, it's a turning point in one's life." He claimed he was being extorted for money by enough people "to bring it into the millions", including a prostitute who found anti retroviral drugs in his bathroom and took a picture of them to get cash from the star. Sheen, who is known for his penchant for prostitutes, admitted he has come clean to end the extortion. When asked if he is still paying people in exchange for their silence, he states, "Not after today I'm not... that's my goal... I think I released myself from this prison today." He confessed it was a mistake bringing prostitutes into his home as he was hiding the secret, but the actor insisted he "was making really bad decisions" due to depression and drug and alcohol addiction. Sheen is adamant it is "impossible" for him to have knowingly transmitted the disease to someb at beverly hills - Los Angeles, California, United States - Tuesday 1st September 2015
