Charlie was born in New York City USA, holds American nationality and his zodiac sign is Virgo. He might be known best for his portrayal of the lead character Charlie Harper in the critically acclaimed romantic comedy series “Two and a Half Men”, created by Lee Aronsohn and Chuck Lorre and which also starred Jon Cryer and Angus T. Jones.
After Charlie was fired from the show, he was replaced by Ashton Kutcher. The series follows a jingle writer who offers his brother and his 10 years old nephew to stay with him for a while – it was a huge hit and won 30 awards, while it was nominated for 70 others including two Golden Globes.
Charlie grew up in New York City and then in Malibu in California as his family moved there following his appearance in the Broadway play “The Subject Was Roses”. Charlie studied at Santa Monica High School, together with Robert Downey Jr. who is today a famous actor, known for his portrayal of The Iron Man in many Marvel’s movies. Charlie played baseball for his school’s team, but was eventually expelled for not attending classes and so having poor grades.
He has since appeared in numerous movies and TV series, first gaining recognition in 1984 when he appeared alongside Patrick Swayze in the teenage drama movie “Red Dawn” – he also had roles in the series “Amazing Stories”, the critically acclaimed war movie “Platoon”, and the drama film “Wall Street”. After his roles in the Clint Eastwood’s film “The Rookie” and the drama movie “Beyond the Law”, Charlie received his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 1994.
Three years later, he wrote his first film entitled “Is There Life on Mars?” – in 1998, he wrote and produced as well as played the lead character in the action film “No Code of Conduct. He became more famous after playing the lead character in the comedy movie “Hot Shots!”, while he is today also recognized for his roles in the third, fourth and fifth films in the film series “Scary Movie”.
Charlie has appeared in many TV series such as “Spin City” and “Anger Management”, and he is also a bit of a voice actor having voiced himself in the animated comedy “Family Guy” in 2010.
Charlie holds two Guinness World Records: for being the fastest person to reach one million followers on Twitter, initially gaining around 130,000 followers daily, and for being the highest paid TV actor per episode, receiving $1.25 million for an episode of “Two and a Half Men” – Charlie was let go from the series because of his addiction to alcohol and drugs, often coming late to the set, usually intoxicated and under the influence of drugs.
Charlie has been married three times, plus a long-term partner, and has five kids. He met Paula Profit while attending high school, and she gave birth to his first daughter. Charlie then dated American model and actress Kelly Preston – the two broke up not long after he accidentally shot her in January 1990.

Charlie dated several adult movie actresses, and on 3 September 1995 married Dona Peele, but the two divorced a year later. He started seeing the actress Denise Richards in October 2001 and the two exchanged vows on 15 June 2002 – Denise gave birth to their two daughters in 2004 and 2005, but in the same year, Denise filed for divorce accusing Charlie of threatening her with violence. Charlie married American actress Brooke Mueller on 30 May 2008 and she then gave birth to their twins, however, Charlie and Brooke divorced on 2 May 2011. Since then, he has been in numerous relationships, and some of his girlfriends were pornographic actresses such as Bree Olson. He became engaged to Brett Rossi, a former adult movie actress in February 2014, but then called it off because, according to Charlie, he decided he wanted to spend more time with his family rather than to continue chasing women.
According to a 2000 issue of the magazine “Maxim”, Charlie had slept with around 5,000 women up to the issue’s release, which would seem something of an exaggeration.
Regardless, Charlie is a philanthropist who served as the spokesperson for the fundraiser Lee National Denim Day, which raised several millions of dollars to be donated to breast cancer research while he has also donated a lot of money to Aid for AIDS. He co-hosted New York Rescue Workers Detoxification Project, and in 2012 donated more than $1 million to the charitable corporation The United Service Organizations Inc. (USO).
Charlie is openly opposing vaccinations, and it’s believed that what caused his and Denise’s divorce was him telling her that she poisoned their daughter after she had her vaccinated.
