Nov. 8, 2023 – Denise Richards believes “Two and a Half Men” turned Charlie Sheen into a man she didn’t recognize. 

The “Wild Things” actress, 52, revealed this week on the podcast “Just B With Bethenny Frankel” that the series’ rise in popularity drove Sheen, 58, to relapse. 

“I think, because the success of ‘Two and a Half Men’ and the money,” Richards said, “I think that led to him getting back into not being sober.”

“All I know is he was no longer the person that I married and no longer sober,” she said.

The “Twisted” actress and the Emmy winner were married from 2002 until 2006 and they have two daughters: Sami, 19, and Lola, 18.
