Charlie Sheen was on steroids for “Major League” role

Back in 1989, when he played in the “Major League” movie, the Hollywood actor Charlie Sheen was on steroids for several weeks, as he now confesses to Sports Illustrated in an interview that appeared in the “Where Are They Now?” issue.

Access Hollywood reports that the former Two And A Half Men star has told Sports Illustrated he had enhanced his performance with steroid intake. “I did them for like six or eight weeks,” he said. “You can print this… my fastball went from 79 to like 85.” He also mentioned that that was the only time he had taken steroids and it was for a good cause. “Let’s just say that I was enhancing my performance a little bit. It was the only time I ever did steroids.”

The use of steroids made the actor more aggressive and in addition, he did not like Ricky Vaughn’s signature hairstyle, that attracted many nasty comments. Sheen told the magazine that the use of steroids, combined with his character’s hairstyle attracted many problems. “I didn’t like the haircut because it generated so many comments in bars. I’ve got enough of that already. Add that to the mix and it’s a recipe for a fistfight,” Charlie said.

Talking about the baseball comedy, Sheen says the movie has kept its charm over time. He said that a few months ago he threw a party at his place to watch Major League and he invited Brian Wilson from the Giants, former baseball pros Eddie Murray and Kenny Lofton, and Collin Farrell. David Ward introduced the movie.

“And when my big strikeout at the end comes on, the place goes nuts like we’ve never even seen the movie before” Sheen told the magazine. “I’m in between my two girlfriends [Bree Olson and Natalie Kenley, who are now out of the picture] and I look over and there’s Colin Farrell giving me a thumbs-up. I reach behind me for a fist bump from Brian Wilson, who goes, ‘Winning!’

He then concludes saying that director David Ward had created a baseball classic “and baseball is all that matters in the world.”

Tyrese Gibson about his workout routine for Transformers

Actor Tyrese Gibson was born ready for his role in the Transformers franchise. He says he had always exercised to get the body he shows in the “Dark of the Moon”, but he is not a fanatic of bodybuilding. As for the diet part, this is where he has to cut some unhealthy snacks. Find out what his favorite chocolate bars are.

At 32 years old, actor Tyrese Gibson has been playing the role of  U.S. Air Force Chief Master Sergeant Robert Epps since the beginning of the Transformers franchise. Having the job of constantly saving the world is not as easy as it seems. Of course, we’re joking, but he is not. Gibson says that he stays in shape doing “what they call like a ‘vanity workout.’ It’s like you just want to look good, you want to feel like a star, but it’s not as technical as a full on bodybuilder.” He then gives some details on what the vanity workout is all about: “I like to run at least five miles a day. You know, abs, bench, chest, arms.”

The actor says that his routine was not meant for the role in the Transformers series. In fact, it is his way of staying fit since … forever. There’s a saying,” he tells, “that if you stay ready, you ain’t got to get ready.”

As for the diet, he admits he does not have a strict way of eating. “I love chocolate turtles. They’re my favorite. I also love Kit Kats, Snickers.”. He’s a man that loves his sweets, but he also makes some effort in sticking to more healthy foods, like baked chicken or fish, along with plenty of salads with vinaigrette dressing. “My biggest challenge is eating clean”, Gibson admits.

Don’t think that he could have ever got the role in Transformers if he hadn’t been a disciplined man overall. Remember that the executive producer of the franchise was Michael Bay, whom actress Megan Fox once called “Hitler”, because of his strict behavior. “It’s been a very long time since I’ve been around somebody that focused, and I think the fans are going to see that when they see the movie.” Gibson said.

Neil Patrick Harris hears wedding bells after NY gay marriage law

The vote for the gay marriage in New York allowed many same-sex people to be get married, including some NYC celebrities. Among them, there is actor Neil Patrick Harris, who is already hearing the wedding bells ring for him and his boyfriend, David Burtka.

The actor, who is now 38 years old, says he had already proposed to David, but that was even before the law being approved. “David and I did propose to each other, but over five years ago.” Harris wrote on his Twitter page this this weekend. He also said that they were already prepared for tying the knot officially; they were just waiting for this moment. “We’ve been wearing engagement rings for ages, waiting for an available date.”
The handsome actor whom you can see in the CBS series “How I Met Your Mother” was just one of the NY citizens celebrating the news in the aproval of the law in Friday. He then tweeted “It PASSED!” “Marriage equality in NY!!” he wrote. “Yes!! Progress!!”

The couple already has two babies via surrogate. They are the proud parents of twins. Their children are only 8 months old.

On Friday, New York became the sixth state in the United States of America in which same-sex marriages are legal. Republican Governor Andrew Cuomo believes this is one step towards progress and an example from the US to the world on equality among the human beings, no matter the race, gender and religion.

The law will be applied starting 30 days from Friday. Even though gay marriage has passed the legal obstacle, it will now have to surmont another one: the public opinion and the social acceptance. This translates to possible problems regarding the officiation of the wedding ceremony, as the law cannon compell religious institutions to officiate it. And from the clergy’s attitude so far, this will be a rough issue. The bishop of the New York’s Catholic Church says that he strongly believes marriage “is the joining of one man and one woman.”

Owen Wilson and Jade Duell split

Actor Owen Wilson and wife recently split over commitment issues, the National Inquirer reports. The two recently became parents, but that hasn’t stopped Duell to leave the Marley and Me star in Santa Monica, while taking the baby and moving to New York.

The National Inquirer says that Wilson and Duell had different opinions on what married life means. Wilson wanted to spend more time with his friends, both male and female, while still being a father to his son of five months old and a husband to his wife, Jade Duell.

Owen told Access Hollywood that having a baby had changed his perspective and he already had a strong bond with his son.  ‘I was never like somebody who was like, ‘Oh gosh, it’s a little baby! Let me hold it’, ‘They’re so fragile, but then when it is your own, all of a sudden you feel a lot more confident” the Wedding Crashers star said. You really do have this bond, this real connection with this thing that a month ago wasn’t even here It is strange… Their cries are like beautiful music.

The same sensitive Wilson shocked the media and the entire world four years ago when he attempted suicide after Kate Hudson left him. Little by little, he got back on his feet and returned to his acting career. This summer, you can see Owen Wilson in Midnight in Paris. He is also the voice of Lightning McQueen in cars 2 which hit the theaters June 24.
