Charlie Sheen’s experiments with drugs are well documented. But he is usually not known for using the kind of drugs that make a person big and strong. After all, he doesn’t look like he uses them that way, does he?
But The Major League star admitted in an interview with “Sports Illustrated” that he tried anabolic steroids, in preparation for the 1989 baseball movie in which he played the fireballing relief ace Ricky “Wild Thing” Vaughn.
“Let’s just say that I was enhancing my performance a little bit,” Sheen admitted to the magazine. “It was the only time I ever did steroids. I did them for like six or eight weeks.
He’s proud of the fact, too, saying, “You can print this, I don’t give a f__. My fastball went from 79 to like 85.”
Well, that’s still not good enough for the major leagues, Charlie, but you’re winning against most people with that!
Sheen’s new drug admission came of the same day that his ex-wife Denise Richards announced that she has adopted a baby girl, whom she has named Eloise Joni. The baby will be a sister to Sheen’s two daughters Sam (7) and Lola (5). The girls are said to feel “incredibly blessed” by their adopted sister.
Will Charlie Sheen have visitation along with Sam and Lola? Denise Richards was married to Sheen between 2002 when they met starring opposite each other on the movies Good Advice and Scary Movie 3. After three difficult years, Richards filed for divorce from him in 2005.
