Charlie Sheen: ‘I Did Steroids’ While Prepping for ‘Major League’

Actor admits using performance-enhancing drugs for several weeks for baseball film

Amazingly, Charlie Sheen has managed to wring yet one more drug scandal out of his substance-happy past.

The former "Two and a Half Men" actor — who was axed from the series earlier this year following a run of increasingly bizarre behavior — tells Sports Illustrated in its latest issue that he took steroids to beef up for his 1989 baseball film "Major League."

"Let's just say that I was enhancing my performance a little bit," Sheen said. "It was the only time I ever did steroids."

Sheen added that he took the performance-enhancing drugs "for like six or eight weeks," quitting when he began to lose his temper. (How could he tell?)

As with his other adventures in controlled substances — Sheen has openly admitted to "banging seven-gram rocks" of crack cocaine in the past — the 45-year-old actor is unrepentant about his steroid use.

"You can print this, I don't give a f—," Sheen told the magazine. "My fastball went from 79 [mph] to like 85."

Presumably, Sheen's fastball has slipped back down to its previous speed. His mouth, however, is still apparently running way ahead of his brain.
