Martin Sheen claims that his son Charlie is "emotionally crippled".Martin Sheen, the American actor and star of 'Apocalypse Now', has opened up about his son's recent behaviour and suggests that he is "emotionally crippled", reports the UK's Daily Telegraph.The 70-year-old comes to his son's defence, arguing, "I know what hell he's living in. I've had psychotic episodes in public. One of them was on camera - the opening scene of Apocalypse Now. So I know what Charlie is going through. When you do something like that, that is out of control, that's the most difficult thing. You have to have courage". Charlie was recently fired from his multi-million dollar role on 'Two and a Half Men' and his father insists that the actor is acting like "a child" because of his past drug use, saying, "You know, Charlie's 45 years old. He's not a kid. Emotionally he still is. Because when you're addicted, you don't grow emotional. So when you get clean and sober, you're starting at the moment you started using drugs or alcohol. You're emotionally crippled". The actor says he is yet to give up hope on his son, suggesting that "faith" can still help him.
Martin Sheen is currently starring in the new movie 'The Way', directed by his son Emilio Estevez. The film follows the story of a father who decides to walk the same ancient spiritual trail in Spain where his son died.
