Carlos Irwin Estévez, better known by his stage name Charlie Sheen, is an American actor, born on September 3, 1965. Platoon (1986), Wall Street (1987), Young Guns (1988), The Rookie (1990), The Three Musketeers (1993), and The Arrival (1994) are among his cinematic credits (1996). Sheen won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor for his depiction of Charlie Crawford on ABC’s Spin City in the 2000s when he succeeded Michael J. Fox as the show’s star.
He next appeared as Charlie Harper on the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men (2003–11), for which he was nominated for many Golden Globe and Primetime Emmy awards, and as Dr. Charles ‘Charlie’ Goodson on the FX series Anger Management (2012–14). Sheen earned US$1.8 million per episode of Two and a Half Men in 2010, making him the highest-paid actor on television.
Sheen’s personal life has made headlines, with claims of alcohol and drug misuse, marital issues, and domestic violence allegations. His contract with CBS and Warner Bros. for Two and a Half Men was canceled in March 2011 after he made disrespectful remarks against the show’s creator, Chuck Lorre.
Sheen publicly stated that he is HIV + on November 17, 2015, four years after being diagnosed. The ‘Charlie Sheen effect’ was named after the revelation, which led to a massive rise in online searches for HIV prevention and testing.
