Hollywood Child Abuse: ""People say, 'What are you thinking?' and here's the truth. It's generally a quote from Apocalypse Now or Jaws."

So what's driving Sheen?
One answer is Apocalypse Now, the 1979 war epic that starred his father, Martin Sheen. As he told GQ, the movie—whose set he visited as a child—is nearly always in his thoughts (an assertion he only amplified with that new tattoo, which quotes the death card that Robert Duvall's character, Kilgore, throws on his victims in the film). "I'm not just my dad," Sheen said this week in one radio rant. "I'm putting up the river to kill another part of me, which is Kurtz. I'm every character in between, save for that little weirdo with his guts strapped in, begging for water. That's not me. But there are parts of me that are Dennis Hopper." -- Charlie Sheen talks to Amy Wallace

Your Say

Sheen is comparing himself to tough fictional characters. He's a pathetic wreck, and the very embodyment of a degenerate.

I applaud CBS for finally tiring of him, bottom line be damned.

Could this be a trend? Lilo the Klepto is likely headed for jail (and not just a weekend), more sports teams are showing their bad apples the door, and state governors are growing a spine to fight unions -- and all this after the Dems get booted from the House and lose even bigger in the various states. Is our metrosexual society rediscovering the little ones between its lega?
