Family Blood Thicker Than Tiger Blood for Charlie Sheen

Jeff Vespa/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- Charlie Sheen may have burned some bridges during his public meltdown, but his family still supports him.

His brother, Emilio Estevez, and father, Martin Sheen, both spoke warmly of him during an exclusive shared interview with The Daily Caller during promotion for their new film, The Way.

Almost a full year since Charlie’s public meltdown, Emilio said, “I live right down the street from my folks.  I talk to my mother every day.  I’m a momma’s boy.  We all are.  So there’s no exclusion in this family.  You’re a part of it.  We embrace and lift you up.”

Referring to Charlie, Martin Sheen added, “When somebody is spinning out like that, do they not live closer to your heart?”

Estevez wrote the screenplay for The Way which stars his father and tells the story of a man on a religious pilgrimage through France and Spain.  It opens on Oct. 7.

Emilio Estevez Says Brother Charlie Sheen Has 'Got It Together'

Emilio Estevez (r) and his father Martin Sheen at a screening of their new movie The Way. Phillip Massey/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Emilio Estevez says his little brother is doing just fine -- that brother, of course, would be Charlie Sheen. During an interview with Access Hollywood Live on Thursday to plug his directorial effort The Way, Estevez insisted Sheen has come a long way since his notorious Two and a Half Men flame-out, which was punctuated by a series of erratic TV interviews and a short-lived, catchphrase-spawning Web show.

Estevez told host Billy Bush that his brother has turned a page. "He’s a different guy," Emilio said. "He's a completely different guy ... He's got it together."

Estevez said his family is welcoming the changes in Charlie: "[He's] gone through it, and he's come out the other side, and I think we're all really excited to see what the next chapter of his life is going to be like."

Estevez also thinks the warlock is on the comeback trail, and says Sheen's excited about his Anger Management TV project. "I think he’s got his focus. He's on a new show and he’s gonna be roasted by Comedy Central -- which I think is going to be hysterical." Emilio won't be at the Sept. 10 taping of the roast in Los Angeles, however, as he will be promoting The Way with dad Martin Sheen, who stars in the film that opens in October.

The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen airs on Sept. 19 at 10 p.m. ET.

Martin Sheen Says Son Charlie Is 'Emotionally' a Child 

Carlos Alvarez/Getty Images(LONDON) -- Charlie Sheen's recent behavior may have baffled lots of folks, but his father, Martin Sheen, isn't among them.  The elder Sheen tells Britain's Telegraph magazine, "I know what hell he's living in.  I've had psychotic episodes in public.  One of them was on camera -- the opening scene of Apocalypse Now. ...I know what Charlie is going through.  And when you do something like that, that is out of control, that's the most difficult thing.  You have to have courage."

Martin says that, despite the fact Charlie is 45, he is still "emotionally" a child.  He added, "Because when you're addicted, you don't grow emotionally.  So, when you get clean and sober you're starting at the moment you started using drugs or alcohol.  You're emotionally crippled."

Charlie's brother, Emilio Estevez, believes the former Two and a Half Men star can bounce back.  He told Britain's Sunday Times, "There's always hope, and there are so many examples of people pulling themselves out of the [bleep] -- and having a rebirth.  So you just pray for him and hope he has that moment of clarity."
