For the first time in his professional acting career, Charlie Sheen will not be billed using his stage name for a movie. To pay homage to director Robert Rodriguez, Charlie is being billed as Carlos Estevez, his birth name, in the opening and closing credits for Machete Kills.
In the above screen shot, obtained by TMZ, we see Charlie paying tribute to his Latino roots. In case you hadn’t heard, Charlie has been using his stage name since he was a mere four-years-old.
Of his Spanish heritage, Charlie said, “I don’t wake up feeling Latino. I’m a white guy in America. I was born in New York and grew up in Malibu. I wish I spoke more Spanish. I’m sure I can learn, but there hasn’t been a lot of time lately. It was never a part of my life growing up. My parents never infused it into our household.”
Como se dice “privileged”?
