In the wake of his 2011 firing from the hit CBS sitcom "Two and a Half Men," and a fallout with series' creator Chuck Lorre, Charlie Sheen had a very public meltdown in which he proclaimed he was 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 porn 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."
