CHARLIE Sheen's personal life has been making headlines over the past few years with reports of alcohol and drug abuse, domestic violence and marital problems.
The Hot Shots star has been working hard to increase awareness understanding around AIDS and HIV since revealing that he is HIV positive. Here's what we known about the "winning" actor.

Who is Charlie Sheen?
Charlie Sheen was born Carlos Irwin Estevez but is known professionally as Charlie Sheen.
He's the youngest son of famed American actor Martin Sheen and the artist Janet Templeton.
Sheen began his acting career in the 1980s in movies like Red Dawn and Platoon, but it was his role in Wall Street with his father Martin that truly propelled him.
After his film career bubbled over Charlie found his way to television stardom, becoming in the process the most highly paid actor on TV at the time for his role on Two And A Half Men.
Sadly for Charlie this wasn't meant to last – his experience with drugs and alcohol saw him lose his role on the CBS show and he lost his place among TV's finest.
Charlie revealed himself to have HIV a few years ago and now advocates for greater awareness and understanding around HIV and AIDS.
Rex Features Charlie's first big break was in Oliver Stone's Platoon.
What's his net worth?
Charlie is a classic example of how Hollywood can both make or break your career, and your finances.
During his TV career prime Sheen was worth a cool $150m which was largely down his buster Two And A Half Men contract.
Currently, Charlie is worth $20m with his career as a film producer, actor and his endorsements being his primary sources of income.
It's a far cry from his days at Two And A Half Men where he brought home around $48m a year.

You might not know it by looking at them or by their screen credits but Charlie and Emilio Estevez are brothers!
Emilio decided that he would forgo the screen name that his father Martin (born Ramon Estevez) used and aimed to make it in Hollywood with his determination and hard work.
On choosing his father's original surname Emilio said, "I swore to myself that I'd make it through drive, ambition and hard work. I wanted to know I got it that way and not because of my bloodlines."
