Remember the ranting, wild-eyed Charlie Sheen who seemed to go off the rails after getting fired from “Two and a Half Men” back in 2011 and spouted nonsense about being a “warlock” with ‘Adonis DNA’ fueled by “tiger blood” who was always “winning”?
Yeah, about that…
Charlie now blames that wacky period of his life on overdosing on a drug: testosterone cream!
“It was a lot of highs and lows. I was taking a lot of testosterone cream, and I think I went too far with it,” Charlie confessed to Dr. Mehmet Oz in a interview scheduled to be broadcast on “The Dr. Oz Show” tomorrow. “It was kind of like a borderline … not a ’roid rage, but a ’roid disengage.
“That was a very specific period of time that did feel very out-of-body and very just detached from all things real,” he added.
“I felt superhuman during some of that!”
After he was dismissed from the hit CBS comedy, Charlie raged at show creator Chuck Lorre, telling the world in a series of outrageous interviews that the TV exec had “picked a fight with a warlock.” He filed a $100 million lawsuit against Chuck that was later settled.
Charlie also declared himself a… different sort of person back then. “You can’t process me with a normal brain,” he claimed. “I am on a drug. It’s called Charlie Sheen. It’s not available, because if you try it once, you will die.”
Charlie’s outlandish behavior peaked with his failed live national tour, dubbed “My Violent Torpedo of Truth: Defeat Is Not an Option.” Those appearances included plenty of grandiose pledges, like vowing to “unlock the Vatican assassin inside each and every audience member.”
“That’s the stuff that I do look at [and] cringe a little,” Charlie admitted to Dr. Oz. “It was nice to give people a bunch of slogans and T-shirts and all that. There were things about that person that were empowering, that were vibrant. But I didn’t like the anger. I tend to be victimized by my anger at times.”
Charlie also discussed ex-wives Brooke Mueller and Denise Richards with Dr. Oz.
He’s currently in a vicious legal battle with Denise, who is suing him for $1.2 million for selling a house that initially gave to daughters Sam and Lola as part of a trust.
“I’m basically being punished for giving her a house. It doesn’t make any sense,” Charlie shrugged. “My thought was, ‘She’s burning down the bank, and then trying to rob it!’”
