  • Quotes

    • Charlie: (On being sober) I blinked and I cured my brain. That's how. Everyone has the power.

    • Charlie: (On winning) Every day is just filled with just wins. All we do is put wins in the record books. We win so radically in our underwear before our first cup of coffee, it's scary. People say it's lonely at the top, but I sure like the view.

    • Charlie: (On if he is an addict) I don't believe myself to be an addict. I really don't. I think that I just ignore or smash or finally dismiss a model that I think is rooted in vintage balderdash, you know? For lack of a better word.

    • Charlie: (On if he hopes the TV series Two and a Half will resume shooting) Hope is for suckers and fools.

    • Charlie: (On being an underpaid rock star) I'm underpaid right now, sure. ... I'm tired of pretending like I'm not special. I'm tired of pretending like I'm not bitching, a total frickin' rock star from Mars. People can't figure me out, they can't process me. I don't expect them to. You can't process me with a normal brain.

    • Charlie: (On his future after the indefinite future of the TV series Two and a Half Men) Just winning, every day. Defeat not an option. I don't know. If the show doesn't happen, movies.

    • Charlie: (On the most important thing in life for him) Everything. All of it. I can't specify one thing. Just bein' known as a guy who wouldn't bow down to the stupidy paradigms that people worship that are rooted in foolishness.

    • Charlie: (On his passion coming off as erratic) You borrow my brain for 5 seconds, and be just like "Dude, can't handle it. Unplug this b!stard." Because it fires in a way that is maybe not from this particular terrestrial realm. When you have tiger blood Adonis DNA, man its like "Wheewww! Get with the program, dude. You've been given magic, you've been given gold."

    • Charlie: (On why he is doing all of these interviews around the time of being fired from Two and a Half Men TV series) One day I woke up. I've been kicked around, I've been criticized, I've been this "Aww Shucks" guy with like this bitchin' rock star life, and I'm just finally gonna completely embrace it, wrap both arms around it, and love it violently, and defend it violently through violent hatred.

    • Charlie: (On why he likes to surround himself with porn stars, while he is smoking) They're the best at what they do, and I'm the best at what I do, and together, IT'S ON! *blows smoke* Sorry Middle America.

    • Charlie: (On Good Morning America interview 2011) ...Can't is the cancer of happen... can't is the cancer of happen.

    • Charlie: (On feeling guilt for his lifestyle) I exposed people to magic. I exposed them to something they're never otherwise going to see in their boring, useless lives. They'll live with that memory for the rest of their lives.

    • Charlie: (On his partying lifestyle) It was epic. The run I was on made Sinatra, Flynn, Jagger, Richards, all of them looked like droopy-eyed, useless children.

    • Charlie: (On if he owes CBS an apology) They owe me a big one. Publicly. While licking my feet.

    • Charlie: (On war and "winning") Defeat is not an option. They picked a fight with a warlock.

    • Charlie: (On his message) I don't think people are ready for the message I'm delivering with a sense of violent love.

    • Charlie: (On why he did drugs and alcohol) I did [drugs and alcohol] because they work.

    • Charlie: (on expecting twin boys with wife Brooke Mueller) It's going to be extremely different. I don't know how to deal with boys. But I didn't know how to deal with girls when I had them either, so I guess it's all an education. We know it's boys and it's pretty cool. We're thrilled.

    • Charlie: (about second wife Denise Richards) I'm so tired of talking about her and all her shenanigans. It is what it is. I don't even care anymore. I'm going to take a stand to basically never utter her name publicly again. I think that if that's known, it will put an end to some of the drama. It's pretty obvious that my wife Brooke [Mueller] and I, through our actions and our union, have moved on with our lives. Perhaps somebody else should consider doing the same thing.

    • Charlie Sheen: (about third wife Brooke Mueller) I feel like this is the first real marriage I have had. The first one was a show, the second one was a con, and this is the real deal.

    • Charlie: (about his ex-wife Denise Richards trying to cut off his visitation rights with their daughters) This is the craziest example of a bitter ex. There is nothing these children need protection from in my care. If they need protection from an overly loving father and a capable future stepmom [fiancee Brooke Mueller], then the world is upside down, and we're all going to hell.

    • Charlie: Sean Penn is the best actor of our generation, hands down. And he's only getting better and it pisses me off. He brings a reality to his work that's beyond what is required, and I think it takes the audience to another place.

    • Charlie: (on Guns 'n' Roses guitarist, Slash, giving him advice to give up drugs) Slash sat me down at his house and said, You've got to clean up your act. You know you've gone too far when Slash is saying, Look, you've got to get into rehab.
