With his bold proclamations of possessing "tiger blood" and "Adonis DNA," Charlie Sheen seemed to be fairly confident in his choices during his highly publicized fallout with "Two and a Half Men" last year.
However, the actor now admits he was having trouble facing reality during that distressed time.
"Clearly, a guy gets fired, his relationships are in the toilet, he's off on some [expletive] tour, there's nothing 'winning' about any of that," Charlie told Rolling Stone in an interview for their latest issue. "I mean, how does a guy who's obviously quicksanded, how does he consider any of it a victory? I was in total denial."
With his new show "Anger Management" set to premiere on FX later this month, the 46-year-old star is seemingly no longer in denial, but said he's no longer sober either.
"I mean, the s*** works. Sorry, but it works. Anyway, I don't see what's wrong with a few drinks," he said, adding that his drink of choice is vodka, straight, because "ice is for injuries."
Charlie also revealed he takes a woman's feet into account when looking for potential romance.
"I've not dated girls because of their feet, just the length of certain toes and the shape of where things should be and they're not," he told the mag. "Hammertoes are bad. And the second toe being too long? That's bad, too."
