Charlie Sheen Makes Press Rounds

Usually when a celebrity is plagued by months of bad publicity due to alleged drug and party binges as well as accusations of spousal abuse, he stays away from the press. Not Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen. In what seems to mirror his high-octane, erratic and bizarre lifestyle, Sheen granted interviews to NBC, ABC, TMZ.com and CNN's Piers Morgan. During his media tour, Sheen tried to justify demanding a 50% raise from Warner Bros. for his work on the now halted CBS show. Never mind that Sheen — while he was working — was the highest-paid actor on television. Though Sheen denies being under the influence of drugs or alcohol — even going so far as to take a supervised drug test, which he passed — his family, including his father, actor Martin Sheen, says Charlie is indeed battling addiction.
