All actors want to be athletes, and all athletes want to make movies. It's a strange situation when Show more All actors want to be athletes, and all athletes want to make movies. It's a strange situation when I meet up with a baseball player -- one of my heroes -- and all he wants to talk about is movies and all I want to talk about is baseball. To this day I cannot accept the fact that baseball players are as interested in what I do as I am in what they do. So I'm making movies -- big deal! They're playing major league baseball. That's the ultimate. They're in 'The Show'. I know I'm in the entertainment business, but it's not like facing Rob Dibble or Nolan Ryan, where you have to come through on the spot. If I screw up a line, well, I get as many takes as I need to nail the sucker. If it means 10 takes, fine. But if a hitter goes 1 for 10 it's another story -- he's only batting .100, and that's not going to cut it in the bigs. Hide

I'd hoped to be a very recognizable celebrity. I thought thats what it was all about: the women, money, the fame, all the the bull****. When you get in it when you're suddenly in the eye of the storm, its not as good as it looks like from the outside. Its not as appealing as it looked when I would hang out with Emilio or Tom (Cruise) or Judd (Nelson) the guys who were going through it when I was still on my way up." (SV Entertainment 1991) Hide

We shot in New York City, so I'd be out to the bars every night till 3 or 4 a.m., then try to show up for a 6 o'clock call to stand toe to toe with Michael Douglas and handle 50% of a scene. How could that work? Yet there I was, the guy that struck gold, looking around at dawn to find that the only one still partying was me. I'd be drinking away, doing blow [cocaine], popping pills, and telling myself I wasn't an addict, because there wasn't a needle stuck in my arm. Talk about mixing up fantasy and reality! My true addiction was alcohol. The extra toxic boosters just helped me shore up the wall between my celebrity self and my real self. The questions I was running from were: 'Is this success all a fluke? Had I been fooling everybody so far? Will I get caught?' It was easy to get hammered and messed up. But in doing so, I buried my self-respect, I buried my self-esteem, I buried my creative drive, and I damned near buried myself." - On filming Wall Street (1987) and his life at the time. Hide

I guess there are more sales in controversy. They should change the title of 'Hard Copy' to Hard Charlie or Sheen Copy, Christ I'm on there twice a week I should get some royalties maybe. Are there so few things going on out there that my birthday party made news? Just a couple days ago on Hard Copy they said I had a nice birthday party and my parents and everybody was there , a good family night, a sober night. They said, 'but the real party took place the next day when Charlie Sheen and all his buddies had a roomful of strippers and porn stars and there were adult film stars on all the monitors in every room of the house', I'm thinking 'No this is absolute madness I was at my house watching football with my friends!'

But I knew I didn't want to be at the (movie) premiere with 500 people 6 months down the line, embarrassed by my physical condition. So I developed a program that was Olympic in its intensity. Eight hours a day, six days a week, combining martial arts, yoga, weight lifting, running, swimming, and stationary bike. I went to Maui 'cause I had to be in tropical climate to burn the fat. I brought my chef who had the difficult task of preparing three meals a day with no salt, no fat, no red meat, no cholesterol, and still keeping it interesting, you know? Maybe a plate of steam for breakfast." - On how (and why) he got so muscular and fit for the Rambo sequence in Hot Shots! Part Deux (1993). Hide

But if I compare the amount of time I've been sober to the amount of time I've partied, well, let's just say I've still got a lot of catching up to do. Staying sober is the most important thing in my life, along with my family and loved ones. The movies, TV, money and all the other crap is just secondary. Hide

This time, Emilio was on another project, so Oliver Stone offered it to me. It was the break of my life, and I knew it. But it was a strange experience, because we filmed in the Philippines, less than 100 miles away from where my dad had filmed Apocalypse Now (1979). People say I look like him - now, here I was, not only making a picture about Vietnam the way he did, but also narrating it the way he did. And, like him, I had a moment that came close to death, when I fell halfway out of a helicopter, but was caught just in time by one of the actors." - On Platoon (1986). Hide

I had to learn to do more than just try to make it to lunch. Fortunately, I realized that I've got a job a million other guys would die for and the responsibility to the money-paying public to give it my best shot." - On filming Wall Street (1987). Hide

If I do that I end up with, OK, I'm not going to drink. It's the same thing with one-night stands. I appreciate my time in the mornings so much that I'd rather go to bed at night alone than deal with waking up, creeping around the bedroom, being quiet, worrying. Also, I'd like to be with somebody I care about. Something moderately substantial." - Quote from 2001. Hide
