In the wake of his 2011 firing from the hit CBS sitcom "Two and a Half Men," and a rift with series' creator Chuck Lorre, Charlie Sheen had a very public meltdown. During this episode, he proclaimed himself a "warlock" who had "tiger blood" and "Adonis DNA" flowing through his veins. Hollywood's most famous bad boy even shacked up with two female adult industry stars he collectively nicknamed his "goddesses" and started the viral hashtag #WINNING.

Sheen returned to series TV the following year with a starring role on FX's "Anger Management." However, FX canceled the show after two seasons.
