Charlie Sheen Details Struggle With Technology: I Threw My iPad Against a Wall
Reportedly, the 46-year-old is off drugs and it appears he has put many of last year’s demons behind him.
But that doesn’t mean he still doesn’t have issues.
“I’m mad at some of the Apple products,” Sheen told Celebuzz. After trying to download music but having to move everything through a hub, Sheen got angry with his iPad and flung it across the room.
“I didn’t know how aerodynamic this thing was,” laughed Sheen. “The thing was sticking out of the wall perfectly. So you can use it as a weapon. It worked perfectly afterward.”
Anger Management got lukewarm reviews in its debut on FX last week, but set a record in the ratings. If the show gets picked up, Sheen is on the hook for 90 episodes, a schedule he finds daunting.
“You just dig a little deeper,” sighed the actor. “It’s a first time in a long time that I’ve been happy to get to work and sad to leave. This whole thing is like a return to innocence for me.”
Innocence is not the word most would use in describing Sheen, not after his meltdown last year following his termination from the CBS sitcom, Two and a Half Men. Sheen was then replaced with That 70’s Show star Ashton Kutcher, who makes six-figures per episode, and is coming back for a second season.
“My legacy could not be what happened at the end of Two and Half,” he said. “I watched a little kid grow up in front of me on a soundstage running around on a scooter. I watched the genius of Jon Cryer blossom right before me. And when it went icky at the end, I couldn’t have that be what everybody remembered.”
With 90 episodes of Anger Management in front of him, Sheen sees retirement a long way off, though he reiterated this would probably be his last TV show.
“There’s a lot of stuff I want to do that I want to explore that doesn’t involve show business,” he confided. “I would even consider being a baseball scout, traveling around the heartland looking for the next world-beating phenom. I want to learn how to dance and paint and write more poetry and raise my kids and travel by choice and go exploring.”
But before he gets to all of that, he’s got Anger Management issues. “There was a real fervor, a big global welcoming party to come back to television,” said Sheen about the ratings. “You can’t ask for anything better than that.”
Anger Management airs on FX Thursdays at 9 PM.
