Charlie Sheen’s Message to Fans

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Television, Drugs, Meltdowns,

Charlie SheenCharlie Sheen, who is purportedly in the midst of an at-home rehab, released a statement to the public recently. In it, he compares himself to a silver screen legend and thanks those who have supported him.

“I have a lot of work to do to be able to return the support I have received from so many people,” said Sheen, before going on to thank his “fellow cast members, the crew of Two and Half Men and everyone at CBS and Warner Bros., especially Les Moonves and Bruce Rosenblum for their concern and support.” Moonves is the president of CBS, Rosenblum the Pres. of Warner Bros.

“And to my fans, your good wishes have touched me very much.” He continued, “Like Errol Flynn, who had to put down his sword on occasion, I just want to say, ‘thank-you.’”

Flynn, who played in many action adventure movies (notably, the Adventures of Robin Hood), also struggled with addiction during his lengthy Hollywood career. Flynn died at age 50.

Sheen is rehabbing following a well-publicized, alleged cocaine binge. He was hospitalized and subsequently released for a "hernia problem." TMZ has obtained audio of the 911 call made on Sheen's behalf when the incident occurred.

Kevin Smith

Warning to companies everywhere: Don’t ever piss off popular celebrities with a Smodcast and a Twitter account.

According to director Kevin Smith (Clerks), he was asked to get off a flight from Oakland to Burbank yesterday because he was deemed too big to fit into his single seat. This Southwest Airlines ejection has since turned into a PR disaster for the low-cost airline.

Despite his insistence that he fit comfortably in his space (he says he “fit between the arm rests & was able to buckle his seat belt w/o an extender”), Smith stated through his active Twitter account that he was told that he “wasn’t going to be allowed to sit there” because he was “a safety risk.”

It appears the car accident isn’t the only thing is “responsible” for these days.

In a new statement posted on his personal website, the famed golfer came short of admitting any he had been involved in an extramarital affairs. The 33-year-old did, though, claim once again that he is “short of perfect” and apologized to his family for any “transgressions” that may have let his family down.

Today’s post (which can be read fully after the jump), comes on the same day Us Weekly published a reported voice mail made between the golfer and another woman he had allegedly been seeing.

Alec Baldwin Through with Acting?

Alec BaldwinThe Drama King is back. Alec Baldwin has recently revealed that he will be leaving Hollywood when his contract expires in 2012. It seems the Mayans were right - the world really is coming to an end.

“I don’t have any interest in acting anymore,” Baldwin explained. “Moves are part of my past. It’s been 30 years. I’m not young, but I have time to do something else.” Like a stint on , an NBC summer reality series two of his brothers participated in last season.

It gets even weirder from there. “I consider my entire movie career a complete failure,” added. So, he also saw The Marrying Man. “I’ll tell you why. The goal of moviemaking is to star in a film where your performance drives the film, and the film is either a soaring critical or commercial success, and I never had that.” Ah, but Beetlejuice will live on in pop culture for ever.

So, the most successful Baldwin brother says he’s through. Anyone care?
