Charlie Sheen Is Carlos Estevez Again

Charlie Sheen is finally back to embracing his roots.

After 30 years going by the stage name, Sheen is returning to the name he was born with: Carlos Estevez.

The ‘Anger Management’ actor is listed as Carlos Estevez in promotional materials for his latest Robert Rodriguez project, ‘Machete Kills.’

Sheen changed his name to Charlie as a kid to avoid being confused with his uncle, also named Carlos, when he was four years old. His father, actor Martin Sheen, changed his own name from Ramon Antonio Geraldo Estevez, but never officially — only professionally.

Charlie explained in a 2012 Univision interview that his Latin roots don’t resonate much with him. He explained (via Us Weekly), “I don’t wake up feeling Latino. I’m a white guy in America. I was born in New York and grew up in Malibu.”

Charlie did admit, however, that it wasn’t necessarily by choice.

“I wish I spoke more Spanish. I’m sure I can learn, but there hasn’t been a lot of time lately. It was never a part of my life growing up. My parents never infused it into our household.”

Perhaps this is Sheen’s effort to not be hypocritical — he previously criticized ‘Two And a Half Men’ creator Chuck Lorre for using a pseudonym.
