Charlie Sheen is suggesting his use of a testosterone cream contributed to his massive 2011 meltdown. Remember that thing? The whole getting fired from Two and a Half Men, tigerblood phase?
The 51-year-old actor recently opened up about that strange period in his life during an interview on Good Morning America, and pointed to a steroid cream he was using “way too much of” as a catalyst for his lengthy freakout.
“It metabolizes into basically a roid rage,” Sheen said in the interview. “That whole odyssey, that was basically accidental roid rage.”
Sure, we can believe there was a little too much testosterone flowing through him at that point—that and a bunch of other stuff, too. Let’s not forget about the other stuff.
“It’s fun to watch sometimes, but also just a little bit cringeable,” Sheen said in the interview, reflecting back on his “tigerblood era.” No kidding, for you and the rest of us, too, Sheen!
Though, as he points out, we did get “some fun quotes out of it.”
Sheen also spoke about his HIV diagnosis, saying that he feels like he’s carrying the torch, and is experiencing some encouraging progress with a developmental drug.
But the (former?) bad boy isn’t out of hot water yet. His legal troubles with former sexual partners he didn’t inform of his HIV diagnosis, are ongoing.
The odyssey isn’t quite over, Charlie.
