Sheen talks about ‘ war’ with CBS
TROUBLED actor Charlie Sheen said he was at ‘‘ war’’ with CBS and that the network was ‘‘ trying to destroy’’ his family in a bizarre interview aired on US television.
Sheen, 45, sat down for a candid hour-long interview with Jeff Rossen from NBC’s Today show.
‘‘The war is that they’re trying to destroy my family.
‘‘ I take great umbrage about that, and defeat is not an option.
‘‘ They picked a fight with a warlock,’’ an erratic Sheen said during the interview.
‘‘ They’re trying to take all my money and leave me with no means to support my family.
‘‘ It’s not rocket science.’’
Asked if he was clean and sober, the Two and a Half Men star replied, ‘‘ Look at me. Drug tests don’t lie,’’ adding, ‘‘ I don’t remember,’’ when asked about the last time he was under the influence of drugs.
He also said that not only did he not owe CBS an apology, but ‘‘ they owe me one . . . while licking my feet."
