Born as Carlos Irwin Estevez in 1965, Charlie Sheen is an American actor. He started gaining recognition in the late 1980s with movies like Platoon, Wall Street, and Young Guns. Sheen also appeared in Major League, Navy SEALs, and Terminal Velocity.
During the 2000s, he replaced Michael J. Fox in Spin City, after the Fox left the show to cope with his illness. Sheen’s performance in Spin City earned him a Golden Globe for Best Actor in television series. Following the end of Spin City, Charlie got a lead role in Two and a Half Men. That show earned him several Golden Globe and Emmy Award nominations.
In 2010, Sheen got the title of the highest-paid actor on television. He earned $1.8 million per episode of Two and a Half Men.
Despite his success on screen, Sheen made a lot of headlines off-screen as well. Reports of alcohol abuse, drug abuse, and marital problems followed his life. In March 2011, CBS terminated his contract for Two and a Half Men.
But he also did some good thanks to his “problematic” life. In November 2015, he publicly revealed he tested HIV positive. He said that he got his diagnosis four years earlier. That disclosure resulted in more than 1.25 million people googling HIV. It increased awareness and testing for HIV. Nowadays, people call it the Charlie Sheen Effect.
During his life, he got married three times. He has five children and one grandchild. His oldest daughter is from his relationship with high school girlfriend Paula Profit. He dated several adult film actresses, including Heather Hunter, Ginger Lynn, and many more. For example, in March 2011, he lived with Bree Olson for a while.
In 2000, he started a relationship with Denise Richards, one of his best marriages and relationships. They got married in June 2002 and have two daughters together. Denise made a couple of cameo appearances in his shows, including Two and a Half Men following their divorce in March 2005.
In February 2014, he got engaged to former adult film star Brett Rossi. But they separated before the wedding. Following that separation, Sheen issued a statement saying “My children deserve my focus more than a relationship does right now”.
