Charlie Sheen has said that after his new show “Anger Management” is over, he will take his final bow and bid farewell to the entertainment business.
The former “Two and a Half Men” star shared his plans during an interview with The New York Times. “When I’m done with this business, it’s just going to be about soccer games and amusement parks. And when this ends, I’m done. This is my swan song,” he said.
Some may ask after all of the drama, controversy and his very public meltdown last year, why is Sheen choosing now to hang up his star?
Allow Charlie to explain in his own way:
“When I’m done with this business it’s just going to be about soccer games and amusement parks. And when this ends, I’m done. This is my swan song.
“I’ve been doing this 30 years. And there’s a lot more out there to do than make-believe, you know? I mean, I’m grateful. I’ve got a dream life as a direct result of television, you know?
“But at some point you just get tired of wearing somebody else’s clothes, saying somebody else’s words and working in somebody else’s space.
“I’m also aware of the fact that you don’t get these kinds of shots in the same lifetime. You’re only supposed to have one hit show, unless you’re Kelsey Grammer.”
Charlie Sheen’s new TV show “Anger Management” will premiere on FX June 28 at pm ET.
