The all-time favorite actor in Two and a Half Men, Charlie Sheen, was once one of the highest-paid actors in the world.
The actor was on his A-game in the '90s and the '00s.
But one look at him now paints a very different picture. He's now broke, blacklisted, and flogging video messages for $437.

The Oscar-winning 1986 war drama propelled the actor to international stardom, cementing his status as a talented actor.
But Charlie's Acting Debut Came Way Back…
Aged 9, he played the role of an extra in the renowned film, The Execution of Private Slovik, which also starred his father.
And in 1984, Charlie made his adult cinematic debut in the Soviet invasion thriller, Red Dawn.
Perhaps One of His Best-Known Acting Roles Came in 2003
Charlie landed a role in the hit sitcom, Two and a Half Men, which skyrocketed him into the film industry spotlight.
Thanks to his mega fame, he became one of the highest-paid actors in the business in 2010.
The star bagged home about $1.7 million per episode of Two and A Half Men.
Wheels Came Off Big Time When His Private Life Started to Catch Up On Him
In 2011, Charlie's conflict with Two and a Half Men creator, Chuck Lorre, led Warner Brothers to stop production on the remaining episodes of the season.
They also banned Sheen from the production lot, and ultimately sacked him.
Around the same time as his firing, Charlie embarked on a series of now-infamous interviews.
During one of the interviews, he rambled that he drinks 'tiger blood' and is on a drug 'named Charlie Sheen.'
Luckily, Charlie Managed To Land a Role on FX's Anger Management in 2012… but Not for Long
Aside from a failed stint in the show, one studio executive claimed the actor had become 'uninsurable.'
The show ended 2 years later.
Then, in 2015, the cause of Charlie's behavior became clear when the star revealed he'd been diagnosed with HIV four years earlier.
Having squandered 'millions' to keep blackmailers quiet, the father-of-five admitted using drugs and alcohol to cope with the diagnosis.
"It was the only tool I had at the time, so I believed that would quell a lot of that angst. A lot of that fear. And it only made it worse."
In 2018, It Was Also Revealed That Charlie Owed About $5 Million Back in Taxes
The same year, he went to court to seek a reduction in his child support payments to ex-wives Brooke and Denise Richards.
In court, he explained he was in a 'dire financial crisis.'
The Actor Has Since Retreated From the Spotlight
His latest venture involves selling personalized greetings for birthdays, anniversaries, and other celebrations through Cameo at a bargain price of $437.
However, in terms of his health, life has never been better.
As for what the future holds, Charlie told US Weekly that his health matters the most.
"I try not to think too far down the line, you know?"
"I made some changes to give myself a shot to do some cool things professionally. And I'm proud of finally being consistent. And reliable. And noble."
