Charlie Sheen says that he feels as if the general public has forgotten exactly what was the root cause of his angry rants last year. In case you have forgotten, Charlie got miffed at Two And A Half Men creator Chuck Lorre for firing him over his big mouth last year.
Charlie’s meltdown inspired him to go on his Torpedoes of Truth tour, along with giving us handy little tidbits such as “winning”, “warlock rock star from Mars” and “banging seven gram rocks”. Now that he’s gearing up for his new show, he is talking about why he got so angry in the first place.
In a new interview, he said, “No one seems to want to remember, they all talk about ‘tiger blood’ and ‘winning’ and everything. But no one talks about what I was so upset about. They just want to talk about the special effects of it all. I won’t get into it now, but people need to review what started it all.”
Is he merely trying to gain some publicity for his new show, Anger Management? Why else would he be bringing up the past feud like this?
He went on to say, “The reason I stayed on it with such vitriol was…one thing: No one is above common courtesy. It’s part of my code. Some people put themselves way above common professionalism.”
He also talked about his new series and his hopes that it becomes a success. He said, “I’m excited as hell, and I don’t get excited about a lot of stuff. Children’s births. Game sevens. Anger Management. The dialogue is really smart. I have a prison group on the show that is going to blow your mind.”
He added, “I wanted to create an environment to work in that was what my dad called a playground of the imagination, you know? So I didn’t have that for a long time. I was working in what I call the quagmire of oppression. I just knew that whole time that this process can be fun.”
