Charlie Sheen Used Real Therapy Sessions For Anger Management Role
The troubled actor, who was fired from hit show Two and a Half Men last year (11) after feuding with his TV bosses, admits he has undergone real anger management sessions in the past and they helped him create the part of former baseball player Charlie Goodson, who becomes a counsellor.
He tells British newspaper Metro, "I’ve spent time in psychotherapy as well as anger management. At the time, I obviously didn’t know it would end up being research for this show but it is nice to be on the other side - in the chair, not on the couch."
Sheen even based the role on his own longtime therapist, who spent 10 years helping him work out his issues.
He adds, "I was able to model some of my physical behaviour on a guy that I spent 10 years having therapy with. It’s a homage to him, really. He taught me a lot of important things I use to this day."
