Everybody’s favorite rock star from Mars, Charlie Sheen, is returning from Hollywood exile this month with a brand-new sitcom, FX’s “Anger Management.” And now that he’s had a full year to process the public meltdown that led to his “Two and a Half Men” firing, he’s gained a little much-needed perspective on the whole mess. “Clearly, a guy gets fired, his relationships are in the toilet, he’s off on some f—ing tour, there’s nothing ‘winning’ about any of that,” Sheen admits in the new issue of Rolling Stone. “I was in total denial.”

But Sheen’s not in denial about his battles with substance abuse; in fact, he’s open about the fact that he’s not exactly clean and sober these days. “I don’t see what’s wrong with a few drinks. Mine’s vodka. Straight, because I’ve always said that ice is for injuries, ha ha.”
