Charlie Sheen has finally obtained his high school diploma after being left behind 30 years ago.
It’s a fun fact you probably didn’t know about Carlos Estevez – he’s actually a high school dropout. The Anger Management star was just a few credits shy of graduating from Santa Monica High back in 1983. Though his parents begged him to stay in school, he pursued acting instead.
Still, Sheen admits that he has always wanted to finish school and get his diploma.
“It was a loose end that always bothered me. I just have this lifelong habit of never finishing things,” Sheen told TMZ.
“The idea my parents had was for me go to summer school. My response was: ‘There’s school during the summer? That’s crazy!’ I could think of nothing worse in my first summer of freedom after all that time. I told them, ‘Let me go on some auditions and if it doesn’t work out, I’ll go and get my GED and go to college. But I got the first job I went on. It was ‘Grizzly II: The Predator,’ that horrible thing.”
Now, the 48-year-old says he’s surprised by how accomplished he feels.
“I’m gonna get a spotlight, cordon the thing off. I think it should be put up somewhere, maybe in the kitchen. This, I think, is important to put up.”
Charlie Sheen also said that college is going go be “hella fun.” We actually think he might be serious; you can’t ever really tell with the Warlock.
