Charlie Sheen boozes his way through "Wall Street""I'd begun drinking all the time," Sheen recalled of shooting the 1987 Oscar-winning drama. "We shot in New York City, so I'd be out to the bars every night till 3 or 4 a.m., then try to show up for a 6 o'clock call to stand toe to toe with Michael Douglas and handle 50 percent of a scene."
He added, "I'd be drinking away, doing blow [cocaine], popping pills, and telling myself I wasn't an addict, because there wasn't a needle stuck in my arm."

Charlie threatens Ashton KutcherWith his lucrative "Two and a Half Men" gig in his rear-view mirror, Sheen did the logical thing and threatened Ashton Kutcher, his successor on the once-popular CBS sitcom.
