I don`t really know what happened: Sheen on his meltdown

Los Angeles: Hollywood hellraiser Charlie Sheen has admitted that his erratic behaviour earlier this year, which saw him being axed from his hit sitcom `Two and a Half Men`, went out of hand.

The 46-year-old actor says he has become sober and calmer after his public meltdown, which prompted many fans and friends to question his mental state, reported Aceshowbiz.

"I don`t really know what happened. It was one of those things where the planets were aligned, perfectly or imperfectly. I said some stuff and then it caught such
traction globally and instantly that I couldn`t really put out the fire... From one moment to the next, I didn`t know what was going to happen. It was pretty exciting.

"Looking back on it, I don`t think I would trade it, but there are portions of it I would have amended a little bit," he said.

Sheen reveals he learnt a valuable lesson amid the media firestorm - to appreciate his family, including ex-wives Denise Richards and Brooke Mueller, who he recently holidayed with in Mexico.

"I`m seeing my kids a lot more, mending fences with Denise and Brooke, just trying to move forward and prioritise what matters. I think that`s where the life is, you know, it`s in those quiet moments.

"It`s not the giant TV deal or the big party or the award or whatever, it`s the memory of your child`s smile at the end of the day that sort of brings that one lonesome tear," he added.
