Charlie Sheen has good news for his family members, but troubling news for those of us who dish on celebrity gossip for a living: the actor is no longer insane.
That's what Sheen - posing below with Raising Hope star Cloris Leachman - told reporters yesterday at the Television Critics Association winter press session.
"I'm not crazy any more. That was an episode," Sheen joked last night. "I think I'm a different person than I was yesterday. Everything is a lot more mellow and focused and much more rooted in reality."
Of course, the new attitude doesn't mean Sheen won't zing Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre still. Asked about his upcoming FX comedy, Anger Management, Sheen said:
"It's nice to be in a situation where the people I'm working with are excited about my input. That wasn't the case for a long time."How does the actor now define "winning?" What is his life like these days?
"I've been spending a lot of time with the kids, a lot of time with the family and I'm getting back into work mode. I'm a single guy hanging out with my children."
