Booze hound Charlie Sheen opens bar

2012-12-30 12:00
Los Cabos - US actor Charlie Sheen, who has a long history of hard partying and scandal, has a new night spot in Mexico - his own, a local official said on Saturday.

The perennially troubled Hollywood star hosted a gala opening night dinner on Friday at his new bar, The Goose, in the Mexican resort area of Los Cabos, said state Tourism Secretary Ruben Reachi Lugo, who was not invited.

Many celebrities "spend their vacation, celebrate their birthdays or open a new restaurant or new development", Lugo said of the resort area at the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula.

Sheen, born Carlos Irwin Estevez, was abruptly booted from his long-running gig starring in the television comedy series, Two and a Half Men in 2011, after publicly insulting the producer.

He returned to television in 2012, with a somewhat tongue-in-cheek role playing a man sentenced to anger management counselling.

Son of actor Martin Sheen and brother of another actor, Emilio Estevez, Sheen first became famous for his roles in the Vietnam War drama Platoon, and 1980s greed parable Wall Street.

Highlights in his career have also included comedic roles in the Major League movies and Top Gun parodies Hot Shots and "Hot Shots: Part Deux.

    It is so sad that this talented man went to ground because of his drinking habits.

    His lifestyle is what most men envy, wine women and song. Party, live for the moment and have no regrets. His character in two and a half men portrays what most men are like in reality. However society wants to tame men into being monogamous, obedient, dutiful providers. Secretly most women are drawn to bad boys like Mick Jagger and Charlie Sheen. - 2012-12-31 02:02

      Mick and I reject your comment!!
