When Russell Brand made jokes at Sunday's MTV Movie Awards about there being a gram of cocaine and a bottle of liquor strapped to the bottom of Charlie Sheen's chair, we all thought it was a fun jab about the former Two and a Half Men star's new sobriety. But in an interview with Rolling Stone, Sheen reveals that he's not actually sober.
"I mean, the s*** works. Sorry, but it works," Sheen, 46, says of drinking alcohol. "Anyway, I don't see what's wrong with a few drinks.... [My drink is] vodka. Straight, because I've always said that ice is for injuries, ha ha."
Sheen also admits that in retrospect the "Winning!" catchphrase he coined during last year's media meltdown was not all that applicable.
"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. I mean, how does a guy who's obviously quicksanded, how does he consider any of it a victory? I was in total denial."
At least Sheen -- who is looking to make a comeback with his new FX sitcom Anger Management (debuting June 28) -- has someone to support him through all of it: his ex-wife and baby-mama Denise Richards.
"He and I are like best friends now. Confidants," Richards, 41, tells Rolling Stone. "He tells me everything."
Adds Sheen, "And we sleep in separate rooms. Everybody's going to want to know that, too."
But when asked if he'd like to have sex with Richards if given the opportunity, Sheen doesn't hestiate. "She still looks f***ing great," he says. "Do I want to? Yeah! Does she? Don't know."
