Charlie Sheen

The other day I saw the youtube clip of Charlie Sheen "winning" and immediately it made me think of how odd it is that Charlie Sheen and Robert Downey, Jr., both dark haired, dark-eyed actors of about the same age, who started out in Hollywood at about the same time, could have turned out so differently. Both had a raging alcohol and drug problem, but one overcame it while the other one did not. I wonder what strength of character allowed Robert Downey, Jr., to pull himself up and remake himself, and what flaw of character kept Charlie Sheen in denial that he even has a problem. I really don't have the slightest clue.

But what I do know is that I very much want to go see the new Sherlock Holmes film.

Það er spurning. Ég man ekki eftir því að Charlie hafi lent í fangelsi nema eitthvað smá kannski en Downey fékk harðan dóm. Aðallega held ég að þetta snúist um fólkið sem er í kringum þá. Sagan segir að Sheen sé með fullt af jámönnum sem eru endalaust að nota hann í kringum sig en ég man eftir viðtali við Downey þar sem kom fram að hann væri með aðstoðarmann með sér sem væri harður í að halda honum hreinum.
