Martin Sheen, clearly concerned for his son Charlie, commented on the former "Two and a Half Men" star and his ongoing saga in the media spotlight.
"You know, Charlie's 45 years old," Martin told The Telegraph. "He's not a kid. Emotionally he still is. Because when you're addicted, you don't grow emotionally. So when you get clean and sober you're starting at the moment you started using drugs or alcohol. You're emotionally crippled."
Martin went on to hint at where Charlie might get his outspoken nature from, saying, "I've had psychotic episodes in public. One of them was on camera - the opening scene of 'Apocalypse Now.' So I know what Charlie is going through. And when you do something like that, that is out of control, that's the most difficult thing. You have to have courage."
Charlie reportedly stands to rake in at least $7 million from his My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not an Option tour that opens April 2 in Detroit.
Martin has been promoting his new movie 'The Way' that opens May 13 in the U.K. and is directed by his son Emilio Estevez.
