Carlos Irwin Estevez, whose stage name is Charlie Sheen, (born September 3, 1965) is an American actor.


Early life

He was born in New York City, a "blue baby" who needed immediate medical attention. His mother is Janet Templeton and his father is Martin Sheen. He is brother to three other actors, Emilio Estevez, Ramón Estevez Jr. and Renée Estevez.


Sheen's film career began in 1984, and his first major role was in Platoon (1986). In 1987, he starred with his father, Martin, in Wall Street. He has recently played the lead role in the political television sitcom, Spin City (as Michael J. Fox's replacement on that show). He now plays the role of Charlie on the sitcom Two and a Half Men, which debuted in 2003.

Private life

Sheen has been dogged by trouble, including drugs and a shooting, and he has frequently had problems with the police. Though he was involved with a number of Hollywood personalities, his long-term relationship with adult actress Ginger Lynn in the late 1990s garnered the most media attention. He is well known to hire top-class prostitutes and spend huge amounts on escort agencies.

Sheen was married to Donna Peele from September 3, 1995 to November 19, 1996. He then married another well-known actress, Denise Richards, on June 15, 2002. They announced their separation in March 2005, but have reportedly since reconciled. They have two daughters, Sam Katherine Estevez (born March 9, 2004), and Lola Irene Estevez (born June 1, 2005). Sheen also has a daughter by former girlfriend Paula Profit, Cassandra Estevez (born 1985).
