Sheen And Estevez Patch Up Their Differences

3 May 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Brothers Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estevez have put an end to their dysfunctional relationship and become the best of pals after working together on new movie Rated X (2000). The brothers sons of Apocalypse Now (1979) actor Martin Sheen, would often go for up to seven months without talking and admitted they'd grown apart. But the sibling stars have become so close after working on the movie about two pornography-making brothers, they now call each other three or four times a day - despite hardly speaking for a decade. Sheen says, "We had come out of really not having a relationship for 10 years and then suddenly boom, you know, we had an opportunity to work together and now we are friends again... There were patches of time when we wouldn't speak for several months and now since doing the movie we speak every day, several times a day." And Estevez, who also directs the movie, jokes, "In fact, Charlie, if you would stop calling me, I would appreciate it. I have a life to lead." »

Martin Sheen Flunked College Exams To Become An Actor

23 March 2000 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actor Martin Sheen was so keen to make it in Hollywood he flunked his University entrance exams so he wouldn't have to waste time studying. The Apocalypse Now (1979) star, who is one of ten children, says his dad was desperate for him to go to college, so he agreed to take the entrance exam. But he made sure there was no way he passed it. He says, "My dad wasn't thrilled about my being an actor. He wanted me to go to college and he even set some money aside for it. "I didn't want to do it because I felt it would be wasted on me, so, to please him, I took the entrance examination. But to please myself, I threw it. " And although his dad finally got the message, Sheen still managed to land his own personal achievement. He says, "To this day, I still hold a record for worst entry examination into the University of Dayton. Out of a possible 100, I scored three." »
