Charlie Sheen, aka "Carlos Estevez," has apparently decided to revert back to his birth name -- at least in the credits of his movie "Machete Kills."
It's true. Charlie Sheen is a made-up name that Carlos Estevez adopted after his dad, Ramon Antonio Gerardo Estevez, changed his name to Martin Sheen.
Emilio Estevez, Sheen's brother was the only one to keep the family name.
The Huffington Post has some details about "Machete Kills":
In the flick, the 47-year-old was cast as President of the United States along Lady Gaga, Amber Heard, Vanessa Hudgens, Mel Gibson, Jessica Alba and Danny Trejo. Since Robert Rodriguez, director of "Machete Kills," is known for his latin pride, Sheen decided to be Estevez.
Sheen, or Estevez, has had his some issues, including a very public meltdown that ultimately led to his firing from the hit show "Two and a Half Men"
However, the actor has also garnered some positive press in recent days. Earlier this year, he payed $10,000 to a 15-year-old Florida girl so her dog could get rehabilitation for injuries sustained when she plummeted 100 feet from a Wisconsin amusement park ride in 2010.
"I like to pay it forward," Sheen said in a phone interview from Los Angeles. "People come into your orbit for a reason. You don't always know what that is ahead of time, but if I ignore these requests then I don't have any opportunity to see where these things lead us, or lead me."
