Charlie Sheen Career

Carlos Irwin Estevez popularly known as Charlie Sheen was born on September 3, 1965 in New York City to actor Martin Sheen. He made his own movies with not-yet-famous friends like Chris Penn and Rob Lowe. 

Charlie’s big breakthrough came in 1984 with the release of Red Dawn, the first movie ever to be released with a PG-13 rating. Ever since, his career took off. He later followed up with a leading role in the award-winning films, Platoon and Wall Street.

His career never lost momentum thanks to roles in films such as Young Guns, Men at Work (both featuring Charlie with big brother and fellow actor Emilio Estevez), Hot Shots!, The Three Musketeers, and Money Talks. 

Charlie has portrayed himself in a lot of films and television shows including Being John Malkovich, The Big Bang Theory and Pauly Shore is Dead. He earned his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1994. 

He also moved to the small screen when he replaced Michael J. Fox for the last two seasons of the sitcom Spin City, a role that earned Charlie his first Golden Globe Award. From 2003 to 2011, Charlie starred in the sitcom Two and a Half Men. The role earned him numerous awards including a Golden Icon Award and ALMA Award. 

Charlie was fired from Two and a Half Men in 2011 after getting into a controversial and public battle with the show’s creator Chuck Lorre. He recovered quickly with a new show called Anger Management that aired on the FX network until 2014.

Charlie Sheen Net Worth and Earnings

Charlie Sheen Net Worth as of 2020 is $10 Million. Charlie Sheen Net Worth is acquired from his career as an actor and a producer.

Charlie Sheen was consistently the highest paid person on television at the beginning of his Two And A Half Men days, bringing home as much as $40 million every year when syndication points were included. 

After getting fired from Two And A Half Men, Charlie still landed over at FX with a deal that had the ability to become extremely lucrative. He signed what is called a 10/90 deal to star in the show ‘Anger Management’. 

But with a 10/90 deal, a star like Sheen is given an unusually large percentage of syndication ownership points, in this case 30% as opposed to a more normal 1-3%. 

He agrees to take a huge per-episode salary cut, knowing that he just needs to hit that magic syndication pot of gold and he’ll make a huge fortune.

According to Anger Management, if the first 10 episodes maintained a certain ratings level, another 90 episodes would be ordered by the network, in this case, Lionsgate. 

If for instance, certain ratings levels were maintained, once the show was sold into syndication, Sheen would have gotten 30% of the profits. And that 30% of profits in theory could have been hundreds of millions of dollars. 

Sadly, Anger Management’s ratings were fairly brutal, especially in the second season. However, when the 100 episodes were brought to the syndication market, demand was very soft. 

The show has currently still not produced a profit so Sheen has not received his huge cash windfall. 

TMZ reported in May 2016 that Sheen has not received a single payment from his syndication deal. A massive failure for Sheen who could have made millions with a more traditional TV deal.

Before September 2016, Sheen was paying $110,000 PER MONTH to two ex-wives. After Sheen sued to have the payments reduced due to his weakened financial status, a judge changed his monthly spousal payment to $25,000 per ex. 

Sheen still pays $500,000 per year to support his kids. In court filings, he claims to have $12 million in debts, mostly made up of various mortgages. 

He claims his monthly income has dropped from an all-time peak of $600,000 around $167,000. His monthly medical expenses currently cost $25,000.

Sheen also claims to have spent $10 million in the last four years settling with people who were threatening to make his HIV status public. 

It’s finally well-documented that Sheen has spent millions on hookers and drugs during his life. He submitted a document to a Los Angeles court in August 2018 saying ‘he has had a significant reduction in earnings’ and ‘is in horrible financial crisis with less than $10 million to his name’. 

Charlie Sheen also claimed to be unable to make his monthly child and spousal support payments because he has been unable to find steady work and [has] been blacklisted from many aspects of the entertainment industry. 

He nearly lost his primary LA home to foreclosure in 2019. Sheen spent $7.2 million on the home in 2006 and attempted to find a buyer for $10 million in 2018. He lowered the asking price to $7.99 million in April 2019. Sheen sold a similar property in the same area for a $400,000 loss in 2015.
