CHARLIE Sheen has revealed the big-screen roles he turned down in an interview with Kyle and Jackie O this morning.
Sheen confessed that he passed up leading roles in successful movies White Men Can’t Jump and Indecent Proposal, both of which ended up starring Woody Harrelson.
“I loved that movie! Big mistake. Huge mistake,” Jackie O said on KIIS FM about Sheen turning down White Men Can’t Jump.
“My friends tell me that Woody should send me roses for creating these leads in his career,” Sheen said.
Sheen said he turned down the drama Indecent Proposal because he didn’t agree with the ending of the movie.
The premise of the 90s blockbuster is that a married couple’s relationship is rocked by a stranger’s offer of a million dollars for the wife to spend the night with another man.
“In the script I read, (Robert) Redford does sleep with the wife and then he winds up doing something with the money, it goes to a charity or he buys and elephant or something happens,” Sheen explained.
“So I just thought, damn, if you’re going to go through that much trauma and that much stress and have someone bed your wife — you’d wanna get a million bucks for it.”
Aussies have the chance to get up close and personal with the pop culture icon next month on his tour An Evening with Charlie Sheen.
At the live event he will open up to Today show entertainment guru Richard Wilkins about getting the sack from hit US sitcom Two and a Half Men after he made derogatory comments about series creator Chuck Lorre.
He will also discuss his struggles with alcohol and drug abuse, his marital problems and allegations of domestic violence.
He will host two live shows: Melbourne on November 3 and Sydney on November 4.
