New Again: Charlie Sheen

Charlie Sheen dove into the shallow end of the pool. This isn’t a metaphor; it actually happened earlier this week (something about a dog and “thinking it was much deeper“). Unfortunately for those who watch Sheen’s television show Anger Management, his injury (stitches on his nose) has delayed production until Monday.

Once upon a time, Charlie Sheen was young and promising and didn’t tweeze his eyebrows. See the article below, reprinted from our June 1986 issue, for proof.

Charlie Sheen, the 20-year-old son of Martin and younger brother of Emilio Estevez, says he took the former’s last name so he wouldn’t be too closely tied to the latter. Currently starring in 20th Century Fox’s surprise hit Lucas, Sheen plays the tender-hearted football stud who manages not only to win the girl from the titular wimpy character, but to keep his integrity intact. Recovering from a string of disasters (Red Dawn, The Boys Next Door, and Grizzly II—the Predator), Sheen’s professional health is on the mend with Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, directed by John Hughes, Turbo Wraith, and Platoon, currently filming in the Philippines.
