Charlie Sheen's Full Interview: The 10 Weirdest Moments
Charlie Sheen's radio interview with The Alex Jones Show will no doubt go into pop-culture history in terms of instant meltdowns. And instant it was, with CBS and Warner Bros. announcing hours afterward that they were stopping production of Two and a Half Men for the remainder of the season.
Here are 10 of the strangest moments in the interview.
-- "I'm dealing with fools and trolls and soft targets. Its strafing runs in my underwear before my first cup of coffee. I don't have time for these clowns. I don't have time for their judgment or their stupidity. They lay down with their ugly wives and their ugly children in front of their loser lives and then they look at me and say, 'I can't process it.' Well no you never will. Just sit back and enjoy the show."
-- On Chuck Lorre: "I embarrassed him in front of his children and the world by healing at a pace that this un-evolved mind cannot process. I've spent, I think, close to the last decade I don't know effortlessly and magically converted your tin can into pure gold. And the gratitude I get is this charlatan chose not to do his job, which is to write."
-- Seeming to be addressing the women he's allegedly partied with, Sheen said: "If I bring up these turds, these ... losers, there's no reason to then bring them back into the fold because I have real fame, they have nothing. They have zero. They have that night. And I will forget about them as the last image of them exits my beautiful home. And they will get out there and they will sell me and they will lose. Bring me a frickin' challenge. It just ain't there."
-- On whether he has an addiction: "I have a disease? Bulls--. I cured it with my mind. It's all good guys. Quit panicking. No panic, no judgment. You can kill me but you do not have the right to judge me. I can't use the word sober because that's a term from those people, and I have cleansed myself. I have closed my eyes and in a nanosecond I cured myself from this ridiculous. It's just the work of sissies. The only thing I'm addicted to right now is winning. You know?"
-- On Alcoholics Anonymous: "I don't subscribe to any part of the model. They brainwashed my friends and my family."
-- Another AA attack: "This bootleg cult arrogantly referred to as Alcohol Anonymous now supports a 5% success rate. My success rate is 100%. Do the math...One of their stupid mottos is 'Don't be special, be one of us.' News flash: I am special and I will never be one of you...'Oh, we have to all sit in here and touch ourselves and frown.' Well, you don't look like you're having a lot of fun. I'm going to hang out with these two smokin' hotties and fly privately around the world. It might be lonely up here but I sure like the view."
-- Refers to himself as a "high-priest Vatican assassin warlock."
-- On haters: "I'm done. It's on. Bring it. As I say. I ain't hiding. You know? And if you're part of my family, I will love you violently. If you infiltrate and try to hurt my family, I will murder you violently."
-- "I'm not Thomas Jefferson. He was a p***y! But I dare anyone to debate me on things."
-- Sheen called Scientology "the church of the Martian idiot."
