In a candid conversation with PEOPLE, "Two and a Half Men" star Charlie Sheen revealed his plans for a serene Christmas with his twin sons, Max and Bob, following a distressing incident at his home. Sheen, who has become synonymous with his character on the hit sitcom, emphasized the low-key nature of their holiday celebrations.

"We are not one of those families that plan a ski trip or the tropical thing. We don't have 30 relatives flying in. No, it's pretty calm, pretty traditional, very sane, very comfortable," he expressed. The actor, aged 58, is not only a father to his twin boys but also to three daughters—one from a high school relationship and two with his former spouse, Denise Richards.

In a heartfelt reflection, Sheen praised his children's grounded nature, unaffected by their father's fame. "They're really cool, really smart, and really funny," he remarked, highlighting their indifference to the celebrity lifestyle.

"It doesn't matter, whatever we're doing that might be important and connected to our job, or some highbrow moment of responsibility, the kids don't care."

Sheen's Hollywood Comeback

The "Bookie" actor also shared his eagerness to return to the Hollywood scene after a brief hiatus.

Known for his dedication and professionalism, Sheen is enthusiastic about reclaiming his reputation in the industry. "I'm absolutely ready. For the longest time, I had the best work reputation. I was the first to arrive, last to leave, when in doubt I'd over prepare," he told PEOPLE.

"I would just check every fricking box. And that went away. So I was really excited about being that guy again." However, the actor's festive plans were nearly overshadowed by a recent altercation with his neighbor. The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department informed Fox News Digital of their response to a distress call from Sheen's residence.

"On Wednesday, December 20, 2023, at approximately 1:00 p.m., Malibu/Lost Hills deputies responded to the 6000 block of Cavalleri Road in Malibu regarding a battery/disturbance call. Upon contacting the parties involved, deputies identified Charlie Sheen as a victim of assault," the authorities stated.

The assailant, identified as Electra Schrock, reportedly forced her way into Sheen's home, assaulting him and resulting in her arrest for Assault with a Deadly Weapon and Residential Burglary. The confrontation escalated as Schrock aggressively grabbed Sheen, leading to intervention from neighbors who heard the commotion.

This incident is not the first legal trouble for Schrock, who had a prior felony arrest in March 2023. Despite the recent turmoil, Sheen remains focused on enjoying a peaceful holiday season, sympathizing with those who face stress during this time of year. His resilience and dedication to his family and career shine through as he looks ahead to a hopeful new year.
