Sheen denies hotel rampage rerun

- FRANK DIGIACOMO fdigiacomo@nydailynew­

Has Charlie Sheen taken up method acting for his new TV series?

The “Anger Management” star’s camp is denying a report that he trashed his hotel room at the Manhattan Ritz-Carlton during another drug-fueled weekend bender.

“It’s not true. I spoke to the hotel, and there was no damage to the room. We checked out, and everything was fine,” Sheen’s manager Mark Burg told the Daily News’ Nancy Dillon.

“There were no escorts. There was nothing,” he said.

The vigorous rebuttal came after Us Weekly reported that Sheen, 46, whose FX sitcom debuts Thursday, embarked on the weekend-long party in his Ritz suite with drugs and “plenty” of escorts at his disposal.

“He totally trashed the hotel room,” an unnamed source told Us. “Escorts were seen coming and leaving. … In the end, Charlie was told that he wasn’t welcome at another Ritz property ever again.”

Sheen was in town with ex-wife Denise Richards and their daughters Sam, 8, and Lola, 3.

According to Us, Sheen had promised Richards, 41, he would be on his best behavior after the family’s notorious 2010 Manhattan trip ended with police responding to Sheen’s coke-fueled rampage at the Plaza.

A rep for the Ritz-Carlton chain was also backing Sheen’s story on Tuesday. A com- pany spokesman told “the hotel was in pristine condition on Friday, June 22, and remains so today.”

The spokesman also denied Sheen was banned from Ritz-carlton hotels.

The report of a Sheen hotel trashing comes just days before the debut of his sitcom, in which he plays an angry sports-star-turned-psychologi­st.

Much like Alec Baldwin’s run-in with a Daily News photograph­er last week, shortly before the premiere of Woody Allen’s movie about the more bizarre aspects of fame — the story could pass as a bit of guerrilla marketing.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Sheen said that since his firing from “Two and a Half Men” in spring 2011, he still can’t explain the erratic and less-than-winning behavior he exhibited then. “I look back at tapes of me live and I don’t know where it all came from,” he said.

Although Sheen went to rehab in 2011, Rolling Stone reported that the “Platoon” actor is “off the wagon and making no bones about it.”

“I mean, the s— works,” says Sheen, whose drink is vodka straight up. “Sorry, but it works.” He also smokes 30 Marlboro Reds a day, by his count.

But Sheen said his real weakness is women. “People think I’m a bit of a rogue, a cad, a Lothario, a guy who’s in a lot of s— that would lead to a constellat­ion of kink and oddities, and I’m not,” says Sheen. “I just love women.”
