Charlie Sheen Talks Life Turnaround on the "Today" Show
Taking care of some media duties, Charlie Sheen was spotted at the “Wendy Williams Show” in New York City this morning (March 30).
The former “Two and a Half Men” stud was in the house to promote his new television show “Anger Management,” and appeared to be in good spirits.
And though he’s a massive baseball fan, Sheen claims he didn’t have the green to buy the Los Angeles Dodgers, though he wish he could have.
Commenting on Magic Johnson’s $2 billion acquisition of the team, Charlie said he stayed out of the deal because, “I didn’t have any money at the time.”
He's in the midst of building his career back up after his highly-publicized "Two and a Half Men" meltdown, and Charlie Sheen talked about his turnaround during an appearance on the "Today" show Thursday morning (March 29).
Clad in a suit and tie, the 46-year-old sat down with Matt Lauer to once again plug his upcoming FX series "Anger Management" - which makes its debut this June.
As for pushing through the volatile times, Sheen dished, "It was a team effort that was ultimately led by myself because it has to be, you know, to make a decision to fix, or, you know, change any situation. But yeah, no, there was a lot of close friends. There was a lot of support."
Then questioned whether or not this is where he thought he'd be a year removed from his breakdown, Charlie replied, "No, I thought it would take at least 13 months. That's a joke. Sorry. Thank you. I didn't... I didn't really have a plan. I was just - I guess the plan was to just reintroduce myself to America and to the media and just say, sorry about that. But here's what's happening now."
Kind of relaunching?" Lauer followed-up.
"Yeah. It's a trip. It's not that much time to put this much back together," Sheen answered.
Back in January, the 46-year-old also reflected on the unpredictable behavior that characterized much of his 2011, telling TCA press, "I'm not crazy any more. That was an episode. I think I'm a different person than I was yesterday. Everything is a lot more mellow and focused and much more rooted in reality."
The "Hot Shots" actor also expressed excitement about his upcoming gig on FX. “I've been at this 30 years. It's nice to be in a situation where the people I'm working with are excited about my input. That wasn't the case for a long time.”
These days, Charlie is more family-focused. "I've been spending a lot of time with the kids, a lot of time with the family and I'm getting back into work mode. I'm a single guy hanging out with my children."
When asked about his feelings regarding his replacement on “Two and a Half Men,” Charlie noted, "It was a little bizarre to watch your own funeral. It was a little mean-spirited. But it’s dead and buried now, right?"
