Charlie’s great interest in acting appeared early on in his life, after taking a supporting role in a film of his father, when he was only nine. Together with Rob Lowe and Chris Penn, he made his own films, but the big break come in 1984, when Red Dawn was released – the first movie with a PG-13 rating. From this point on, his career took off. Leading roles in Wall Street and Platoon followed quasi naturally.
Charlie Sheen’s career never seemed to lose momentum, as he always got important roles in films like Men at Work, Young Guns, The Three Musketeers, Hot Shots! or Money Talks. The actor also portrayed himself on several occasions, in either television shows or films, such as Being John Malkovich, The Big Bang Theory, and Pauly Shore is Dead. The year 1994 brought Sheen a well-deserved star on the Walk of Fame, in Hollywood.
But Charlie Sheen worked for the small screen as well, after replacing Michael J. Fox during the final two seasons of Spin City. This was the sitcom that brought Charlie the first Golden Globe. After it, he starred in another sitcom – Two and a Half Men – for eight years. This role brought him numerous awards, such as ALMA and Golden Icon.
Throughout the contract for this sitcom, Charlie Sheen was the highest paid television actor and earned $1.25 million for each episode. But, in 2011, after a public and controversial battle with the creator of the show – Chuck Lorre – Charlie Sheen was fired from the sitcom Two and a Half Men, accused of having gotten too into character, and replaced by Ashton Kutcher, who did not earn more than $800,000 per episode. At that time, Sheen had just shot the 7th season, but CBS was committed to shot two more seasons, at least, and so they did.
Charlie Sheen did not wait too much to get back on the TV screens, so, after just a short period of time, he came out with a new show that was aired by the FX network – Anger Management. His determination for an exceptional acting career was unstoppable and made Charlie Sheen net worth what it is today: $150 million.
