Winning Vintage Charlie Sheen

| Filed under: Charlie SheenSad SadLarry King

Woah! For anyone questioning the legitimacy of Charlie Sheen's mental "winning" breakdown, take a look at this clip (above) of the warlock appearing Larry King Live in 1988 shortly after the success of Platoon.

Intelligent, humble, gracious, and shockingly, he actually cared about his body!

As Sheen talks about his success as an actor after the war film, he told Larry King:

"It's not about getting bigger, it's about being better. It's about focusing on the work, staying true to myself, not abusing the body, and just trying to put across performances that people are entertained by."

It looks like his priorities have changed with age, to say the least.

This clip reminds us of why we fell in love with Charlie Sheen to begin with, but at the same time, saddens us to realize we may never get him back.

Ladies and gentlemen, here is some vintage Sheen.

    Crazy Charlie was already doing drugs at this time……just not as much as he would eventually.

    aw that's sad. though his comments are funny, it's not okay that he is actually in that state of mind. I wish he'd never done drugs either. he was so handsome, healthy, and unfortunately mature/gracious/etc back then than he is now in his 40's. if this isn't something else, it's one hell of a midlife crisis :( go back to the other charlie, he was better!!

    yeah, he kept licking his lips…coke for sure. Sad.

    I give him another fifteen minutes before they find him doing to River Phoenix shuffle on Hollywood Boulevard. I just hope the late night hosts still have the balls to continue to roast him after he goes tits up. Idiot.

    He also didn't have 200 milliion in the bank at that time and didn't have the freedom to speak his mind. Now, he does. However, he's def on something. He looks terrible. And it's not a "vegetarian look".

    lOOK how far he has fallen. Shows what unlimited excess does to a person. Money, fame, and notariety.

    Let this be a lesson to the Lindsays et. al. of Hollywood.

    See how goodlooking he was, and lost it all, including his teeth. Due to smoking/partying.

    Charlie has always had the nervous twitch and same mannerisms - then and now. It's just compounded now because he DOESN'T CARE WHAT PEOPLE THINK. When you're an up-and-comer in Hollywood you have to kiss major ass. He doesn't have to now, so he says whatever is in his mind. Team Sheen all the way baby. :) I think he's awesome. :)
