Now that Charlie Sheen is headed back to rehab after an epic decline, he’s decided to speak out. We fully expected a rant or a denial of his condition, as he’s normally done in the past. Color us surprised—this time he’s actually thanking people, and being polite. But being Charlie Sheen, there’s also an element of the bizarre in his statement. Charlie thinks he’s like Errol Flynn—old Hollywood’s original swashbuckler (and not to mention, sex symbol).
The statement reads, “I have a lot of work to do to be able to return the support I have received from so many people. I want to say ‘thank-you’ to my fellow cast members, the crew of Two and a Half Men…And to my fans, your good wishes have touched me very much. Like Errol Flynn, who had to put down his sword on occasion, I just want to say, ‘thank-you.'”
Well, it’s a start for him at least, right? But Charlie should also know that Errol Flynn, after a lifetime of brawling, womanizing and alcoholism, died of a heart attack. Not exactly something to aspire to.
