Charlie Sheen: "Chuck Lorre basically called me Superman"

Aspiring crack-utante Charlie Sheen called into The Dan Patrick Show again today, this time addressing the vanity card from Two-and-a-Half Men creator Chuck Lorre that ran at the end of Monday’s episode. (He seemed unaware of a second, far-harsher card that ran after Mike and Molly, in which Lorre described Sheen as “inside, dead...life ebbing from his wasted body.”

It may have only flashed on the screen for a second, but thanks to the magic of DVR technology, we know that it featured a list of Lorre’s healthy-living habits, followed by the words, “If Charlie Sheen outlives me, I’m gonna be really pissed.” But Sheen, a man who always sees the glass pipe as half-full, took it as a compliment.

"This is like a gigantic compliment," he told Patrick. "Chuck offered an olive branch. That’s how I interpreted it...This is about him personally. It doesn’t get to me, it’s not about me until the end. It’s a reflection of how he feels, in comparison to how insane my life appears at times. So, I took it as a huge compliment. He basically wrote a brilliant little piece of literature and called me Superman. Don’t people get it?"

Ah, crack. Only you could twist a searing indictment of a deadly and hedonistic lifestyle into something as fun as The World’s Tiniest Novel About the Son of Krypton. You’re one hell of a drug.

@vstherevolution: since 2009!? You're new to this whole thing, aren't you? This (Charlie Sheen Versus addictions to booze/drugs/whores/strippers) has being going on on-and-off since the 80's! And yes, Sheen will outlive Lorre, that's a certainly.

@MrDunham I like writers that don't say they both like and dislike something, critisising it's every aspect then saying "herp derp but i likez it".

It's all publicity I'm sure. However, I don't think Chuck Lorre was saying you are Superman, I think he was saying he takes care of himself and he would be upset if he died before you.



For it to be intrepreted as anything other than that I have to say:



CAN YOU SAY NARCISSISM AND POSSIBLY DELUSIONAL.



NOT JUDGING. Love the show, it's hilarious.



Reminds me of an ex boyfriend of mine, AND YEP THAT'S WHY HE'S AN EX.

Anyone thinking that stars of the past didnt get up to this sort of crap is pretty wrong, it's just that today everything is reported. The makers of the show and his fellow co-stars always say how professional he is when it comes to filming. And normal people that do this are just that normal people not millionaires acting in one of the biggest shows there are, he does some crazy things yes but he's a star they have always done things differently.

Hey, give this guy Tim a break. He might be annoying some times, yeah, but at least he does what he's got to do, while most other writers here at this site fail miserably at it. Which ones do you prefer, the one who says it the way it is, or the ones who say just what you want to hear/read? Just a question, it's all good. ;)

Finally a well written article on TV.com, by someone who obviously knows how to write! Thanks. I especially like the last paragraph.

Stopped reading TV.com articles after Tim Tourette annoyed me one too many times.

LOL. I loved the satire, my friend.



So, Charlie Sheen? Needs to get fired. Who friggin cares that he's Charlie Sheen. When normal people do this sort of thing they don't get off this easy :p Man better shape up, fast. It must be awful for his family but sometimes you just have to hit rock bottom to realize you f-ed up...

He's an absolute legend, basically a man that every other man silently wants to be. Kinda like real life Hank Moody^100. He does whatever he wants and knows that he'll get away with it purely because he's Charlie Sheen.

I agree he is full of himself.

I'd have more respect for Chuck Lorre taking a stand against Charlie Sheen if he stopped riding the Two and a Half Men gravy train to millions.
