We really hate to add fuel to the Crazy Chaz fire, but we think we’ve finally cracked the code on what makes Charlie Sheen so….Charlie Sheen-like. The actor recently admitted to Sports Illustrated that he took steroids to prep for his role in the 80s baseball classic, Major League. Yes, it’s kinda like a serial killer admitting that he cheated at Scrabble, but bear with us. During filming, Sheen said he was prone to fits of intense irrational rage. See guys! He’s not nuts, he’s just method! Somebody needs to tell him that the steroid thing doesn’t help for every role, though.
“Let’s just say that I was enhancing my performance a little bit,” he said of the shoot. “It was the only time that I did steroids. I did them for like six or eight weeks. You can print this, I don’t give a f–k. My fastball went from 79 [miles-per-hour] to like 85.” But he claims to have stopped juicing after becoming unable to control his temper, especially when dudes made fun of the mullet haircut he sported for the movie. “I didn’t like the haircut because it generated so many comments in bars. I’ve got enough of that already. Add [steroids] to the mix, and it’s a recipe for a fistfight.”
Let that be a lesson to you, little leaguers: too much steroids gives you tiger blood. Err, wait, come back kids! That’s a BAD THING!
