London: Charlie Sheen has announced that he is planning to retire from Hollywood, saying that his new sitcom will be his “swan song”.

The 46-year-old actor, who has admitted to “hurting himself” with his recent carefree antics, now said that he is looking forward to turning his back on show business.

Sheen was fired from hit TV series ‘Two And A Half Men’ last year and went off the rails in spectacular fashion with a series of bizarre public rants as well as embarking on a chaotic stage tour.

Sheen has been promoting his new television show ‘Anger Management.’

“I’ve got a dream life as a direct result of television but at some point you just get tired of wearing somebody else’s clothes, saying somebody else’s words and working in somebody else’s space,” the Daily Express quoted him as telling the New York Times.

“When I’m done with this business it’s just going to be about soccer games and amusement parks. And when this ends, I’m done. This is my swan song.

“There’s a lot more out there to do than make believe, you know,” he added.
