Charlie Sheen is beyond a hot mess. I can't decide if the drugs have completely addled his brain or he is so far in denial about his own problem that he has to blame everyone else in order to continue to function.

Franco bored himself to sleep apparently.

"Can't is the cancer of happen."

Um..wait..dude...what?!?

Franco may have been stoned, but he can sober up. Sheen on the other hand will still be crazy tomorrow & the day after.

Wait, he's not crazy, he's KA-RAAAAYYYYYZEEE with a capital K.

Seriously, I think the dude needs some psych meds.

Charlie Sheen is full-blown delusional. First, for thinking he's currently under-paid. Second, for thinking there's going to be another season of 2.5 Men for which the producers can pay him $3m/episode.

I think we can safely predict that Two and a Half Men won't be back. And the crew can thank Charlie himself for that.

Sheen is only 45??? He looks at least 10 or 15 years older. Must be all the fabulous care he takes of himself. Cause, ya know, it COULDN'T be the drugs and hard living.

Scarlett Johansson looked huge in that dress. And I love her talent, find her acting tremendous, but she appeared old, not mature, heavy, not young, and out of touch with what fans have come to expect from her since breakthough films like The Horse Whisperer.

At the risk of being accused of practicing psychiatry without a license, I'd guess that Sheen's underlying illness is bipolar disorder, but that it's been aggravated by the years of substance abuse (possibly permanent additional brain damage), and that he's currently on a manic binge.

I wish for everyone's sake, but most especially for Charlie's, that the media would stop exploiting his behavior for the sake of their ratings. It's just voyeurism at its worst.

JRLGG, I too feel sorry for the crew and rest of the cast of "2½ Men," who all seem blameless in this mess. An article I read in the past few days pointed out that Chuck Lorre has dealt with the loss of a sit-com's star before, when John Ritter of "8 Simple Rules" died unexpectedly. While the post-Ritter version of the series was lacking, at least it provided income for the cast and crew while they sought other employment, as well as affording them and the viewer the opportunity to grieve for Ritter. The best revenge against Charlie would be for the show to trundle along without him, with a new co-star for Jon Cryer.

"In Entertainement" headline currently on this page: "Sheen says he wants a raise to return to show." Waiting for "Lorre says Sheen should hold breath till he receives it."

I second Nosy Parker's sentiments. I happened to be sitting in a waiting room this a.m where the TV was tuned to a Good Morning America interview with Sheen. Anyone who has a close friend or a family member with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or both would tell you that what they saw on that broadcast was a man in the midst of a mental health crisis being exploited by Good Morning America -- or an actor playing the part of a man in the midst of a mental health crisis exploiting Good Morning America. Neither scenario should have made it onto the airwaves.

exco, it seems almost like going to stare at an old-fashioned freak show.

Charlie Sheen probably won't be alive 1 year from today. Whatever demons are in his mind seem to have taken over and he's completely lost contact w/ reality. He'll O.D. and that's it for him.

randysbailin and others, the problem is that in many states, in order for a person to be involuntarily committed, there has to be evidence that they're a serious hazard to their own or another person's life (e.g., in Charlie's case, by ODing, in which event it could be too late).

Posted by: Nosy_Parker | February 28, 2011 8:51 PM | Report abuse

It is amazing to me is that what Charlie has and continues to display is not sufficient evidence of being a threat to himself and others? Even in this age people have been committed (for 72hrs anyway) on much less evidence.
Yes, it is so awful. I hope he can get, and take, the help he needs to not die. Very sad.
