Charlie, Charlie Sheen Biography
Carlos Irwin Estevez, better known by his stage name of Charlie Sheen, was born in September of 1965 in New York City. The family moved to Malibu, California, when he was young. He made his television debut in his father’s film The Execution of Private Slovik. Sheen was 9 years old. He attended Santa Monica High School in California, where he had an interest in acting, making amateur films with his brother Emilio and friends from school, Sean Penn and Rob Lowe. Just before he was to graduate high school, he was expelled for poor attendance and bad grades. This was when he changed his name to Charlie Sheen and decided to pursue an acting career.
Sheen’s first movie break came in 1984 with Red Dawn, but it was his film Platoon which brought him to fame and fortune. After Platoon, film after blockbuster film followed including Young Gums, Men at Work, Hot Shots!, The Three Musketeers, and Money Talks. After 2001, Sheen became well known for his television work, replacing Michael J. Fox in Spin City, as well as Being John Malkovich, and The Big Bang Theory. From 2003 to 2011, Sheen was the star of Two and a Half Men, which earned Sheen a Golden Glove Icon and ALMA Award. Sheen became the highest paid actor on television, earning more than $1 million per episode. Sheen was eventually fired from Two and a Half Men in 2011 after a very public battle with the show’s creator. Sheen has since rebounded with a new show, Anger Management, which is one of the highest rated comedies on cable.
Sheen is also well known for his private life, including a nasty divorce from Denise Richards, as well as spousal abuse charges from his third wife, Brooke Mueller. Sheen recently announced that he is HIV positive. He stated that he had known since 2011 but wanted to keep it quiet. Sheen admitted paying out almost $10 million to various people to keep their mouths closed. Sheen has a current net worth of $125 million, which will certainly increase with his successful new comedy, which was renewed for another 3 seasons for $200 million.
