With several movies, achievements, and of course controversies on screen and away from the screen, Charlie Sheen will always be a name to remember in Hollywood. The famed Two and a Half Men star is one actor who has a lot to be discussed about him. A careful look at his life will reveal that the actor is one of those stars who did not do a good job in maintaining their reputable image after hitting the limelight.
Although it does not outweigh his numerous achievements, Sheen’s unpopular lifestyle in recent years had an effect on his career. Born to reputable actor Martin Sheen and Janet Sheen an artist there was no escaping from show biz for Charlie and his siblings. Many have inquired about the whereabouts of the actor in recent times. But before giving you an update in that, get to know about Charlie Sheen’s age, his height, and other information.
Charlie Sheen’s Age
The question of Charlie Sheen’s age keeps popping up probably due to his known escapades which unarguably contributed to his fame. Born Carlos Estévez on September 3, 1965, Charlie was only 9 years old when he made his first appearance on the screen. It was in the film, The Execution of Private Slovik, a then-popular movie where his father played the lead role. From then on he was sure he wanted to toe the acting line like his father. Young Sheen went on to embark on explorations in the acting field in his teens.
As a teenager in high school, he would skip classes alongside his brother Emilio, making amateur films with their friends. Although his academic lapses consequently led to his dismissal from school, following his acting passion paid off for him in the future. Relentless Carlos never looked back, he started to pursue his acting career fully and changed his name to Charlie Sheen.
Charlie officially landed his first film role at the age of 19. It was in the 1984 teen drama, Red Dawn. At 21 he had his first major movie role and it was in the drama Platoon, a war movie. From then on it was one hit movie to another.
A lot of vices tempted and probably got the best of Charlie Sheen in his later years. Charlie’s 46th year in 2011 was indeed a huge negative turning in his life. It was after he revealed he was HIV positive at 50 that many discovered that at the age of 46 he went through rehab but in his home, all in a bid to manage drug addiction.
At the time, he was shooting the Two and a Half Men sitcom, he was said to have undergone rehabilitation-only 12 months back. That same year he was dismissed from Two and a Half Men production by Warner Bros for publicly making derogatory comments against the show’s creator Chuck Lorre.
How Tall is He?
If indeed, people get depressed for their bad looks or stature, it is definitely not the case for Charlie Sheen. He may not be one of the tallest Hollywood actors like Vince Vaughn, Tyler Perry, and others but he is definitely above the average height for a man. Sheen’s height of 5ft 9in (1.79m) is quite proportional to his weight of 83kg or 183lbs.
What is Charlie Sheen Doing Now?
Charlie Sheen’s once blossoming career seems to have taken many steps backward since he revealed his HIV status in 2015. Evidently, the hiccups started way before then – we recall the alcoholism and addiction that caused him several setbacks during the production of Two and a Half Men. But then, the once highest-paid actor was forced to the sidelines after his revelations.
More so he also got caught up in a series of legal battles with exes who claimed he put their lives at risk for not disclosing his health status. For the legal tussles, he is still on it and its really taking a toll on him financially and emotionally. It even got to the extent that the actor asked that his child support payments to ex-spouses be slashed.
The actor has gone sober in recent times, as he tries to pick up the pieces of his life. While speaking on British morning talk show “Loose Women” in April 2019, Charlie said he has been on therapy and has been sober for over a year. The actor is looking forward to getting back in the business again and is optimistic of a positive reception.
