Could Charlie Sheen really be harboring some regrets about his rocky past? In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Sheen admits his “winning” mentality might have been skewed by personal turmoil. The actor famously walked away from the popular sitcom Two and a Half Men and a $1.25 million-an-episode salary; his new FX show, Anger Management, premiers June 28. He explains his old behavior thus: “Clearly, a guy gets fired, his relationships are in the toilet, he’s off on some fucking tour, there’s nothing ‘winning’ about any of that. I mean, how does a guy who’s obviously quicksanded, how does he consider any of it a victory? I was in total denial.” But despite this admission, Sheen—who sent a bizarre poem to TMZ this week in response to questions about drug use—continues boozing without apology: “I mean, the shit works. Sorry, but it works. Anyway, I don’t see what’s wrong with a few drinks.” Rolling Stone also speaks with Sheen’s ex-wife Denise Richards in their interview, who says, “[Charlie] and I are like best friends now. Confidants. He tells me everything.” But Sheen stresses that despite their mended relationship, “We sleep in separate rooms. Everybody’s going to want to know that, too.”
