Charlie Sheen Admits to Using Steroids While Making Major League MovieJune 29, 2011 1 Comment
Perennial drug addict Charlie Sheen has admitted in an interview with Sports Illustrated Magazine that while making the movie, Major League back in the late 1980s, he used illegal steroids to enhance his performance as a fictional baseball pitcher.
Sheen told Sports Illustrated, “Let’s just say that I was enhancing my performance a little bit.” Charlie Sheen then defended that “it was the only time I ever used steroids.” Citing how significantly his steroid use improved his baseball skills, Sheen recounted, “You can print this. I don’t give a f*ck. My fastball went from 79 to like 85 [miles-per-hour].”
Charlie Sheen did then admit that he suffered some of the common side effects of steroid use, including irritability and a short fuse, causing him to stop taking steroids after what he claims was a period of six to eight weeks of steroid use, allegedly during the film’s production.
Charlie Sheen admits that he came close to engaging in some physical altercations with strangers when people mocked his famous Major League haircut that he sported for the classic baseball film. “I didn’t like the haircut,” Sheen explains, “because it generated so many comments in bars. I’ve got enough of that already. Add that to the mix and it’s a recipe for a fistfight.”
Sure, Charlie Sheen’s recent admission of steroid use is newsworthy, but it’s hardly shocking since Sheen is a lifelong addict, and addicts will look for any excuse to use. The 1989 movie, Major League was just one in a string of many excuses Charlie Sheen has likely used for abusing illegal drugs and alcohol over the years.
If Charlie Sheen’s next role was playing famous Colombian druglord Pablo Escobar, he would be in hog heaven doing research for that performance, don’t you think?Tags: Charlie admits to using steroids for major League, Charlie Sheen, Charlie Sheen addiction, Charlie Sheen drugs, Charlie Sheen Major league movie, Charlie Sheen Major League steroids, Charlie Sheen Sports Illustrated interview, Charlie Sheen steroid use, Charlie Sheen used steroids to improve fastball for major league, Major league movie, Pablo Escobar, Sports IllustratedCelebrity News, General, Nostalgia, This Is Awesome
