Today Show Interview: Charlie Sheen to Sue CBS For “Tons”
Charlie Sheen‘s Today Show interview segments have spurred a lot of controversy as well as some concern for the mental well-being of the actor, who said he is not using drugs, although his demeanor suggests otherwise. Need an example? When the Today Show‘s Andrea Canning asked whether he was using drugs, the actor responded that he was riding a certain high.
“I am on a drug – it’s called Charlie Sheen,” he said. “It’s not available, because if you try it once, you will die; your face will melt off and your children will weep over your exploded body.”
The words of a sober man? You decide. Sheen also explained in the Today Show interview that he was tired of being kicked around, and was thus suing CBS for breach of contract.
“People misinterpret my passion for anger…[CBS is] on a battlefield and they let their emotions and their ego…basically, they strapped on their diapers, and so they’re in breach.”
When asked if he would sue, Sheen responded, “Wouldn’t you? I don’t have a job, I got a whole family to support.”
Sheen said that he would be suing for “tons,” explaining, “I’m here to collect.”
