The 46-year-old actor, who struggled with alcohol and drug problems before his public axing from “Two and a Half Men”, reveals he felt his crazy behavior was almost like an out-of-body experience.
Sheen said, “I didn’t recognize parts of who that guy was. I just wish it was somebody else’s body. You say it’s been a year – it’s either been a day, or a hundred years.
“I guess the plan was to reintroduce myself to America and to the media and say, ‘Sorry about that, but here’s what’s happening now.”
Charlie jokingly said it was a “team effort” to overcome his problems, stating, “It was a team effort that was ultimately led by myself. There were not a lot of people close by saying, ‘Dude, let’s just take a step back.'”
Sheen also came clean about feeling bitter about Ashton Kutcher replacing him on “Two and a Half Men”, but got over that feeling by creating the new sitcom “Anger Management”.
