GQ magazine profiled “Two and Half Men” star Charlie Sheen after the last incident that led to his in-home rehab and his hit show being put on hiatus, but before his radio rants led to the show being completely dropped for the rest of the season. And for good measure they got some members of his crowd — temporary and more permanent — to discuss him as well.
Kacey Jordan, the adult film actress who was part of the 36-hour party that ended with him getting taken to the hospital, describes Sheen as “unhappy, and he probably relates to the porn girls, thinking they’re unhappy, too.”
But Sheen describes himself and his attitude thusly: “In regards to this whole recent odyssey, I’ll just say this: It was epic. There are two rules at my house right now: You park your judgment at the door, and you enjoy every moment. People can interpret that however they want. Enjoy every sober moment. Enjoy every loaded moment. Just enjoy every moment. It’s not a rehearsal, you know?”
Which seems much more in line with how his pal Sean Penn sees Sheen as well.
“When you divorce the moral judgments, which I prefer to do, I see a guy who has a clearer view of the nature of the world around him than is sometimes comfortable to have,” Peen says. “Those are the sort of people who have a tendency to find altered states. But he’s a very ironic character. He’s got pretension in the crosshairs of his wit. I think to a large degree he’s saying, ‘Guys, we’re only going to be here once, so lighten the f*** up.'”
The April issue of GQ doesn’t hit newsstands until late March, but don’t let that stop you. The profile is online now.
