Gotta Watch: Vintage Sheen; women mechanics; Witherspoon on Avon

Sheen before the chaos– With all the buzz around Charlie Sheen’s recent media-documented meltdown, we thought we’d bring out some vintage Sheen to illustrate how his popularity rose in the first place. In this 1988 interview with Larry King, Sheen talks about his breakout role in the hit war movie “Platoon.”

Women fueling mechanic workforce – "I want to do those things that women are running away from," says the head of an organization training Nigerian women to become auto mechanics. CNN's Christian Purefoy looks at how her mission is shaping so many lives.

Avon's global mission – Avon is much more than just a cosmetics company. CNN's Hala Gorani talks to Avon CEO Andrea Jung and actress Reese Witherspoon about how the company is empowering women around the globe.

    I have to admit it is fun watching him troll the media like this. It's like Joaquin Phoenix all over again, only more hilarious. And he's rich enough to get away with it. All he has to do is sit in his house and phone into CNN calling himself a warlock every now and then. No doubt they'll be reporting "WE ARE NOW IN DAY 83 OF THE CHARLIE SHEEN MELTDOWN"

    Platoon came out in 1986, not 1988 CNN... do your due diligence

      Um, looks like you need to do your due diligence. The 1988 refers to when the Larry King CNN interview of Charlie Sheen took place, not the year the movie came out.

    Sheen isn't losing. Its become fashionable to jump on sheen like the kid everyone in high school thinks is uncool, so they pick on him for being different, or maybe a little off, but maybe its the kid trying to reach out, or just plain unique and different.

    All of you are acting like kids in high school, I guess this is the effect of the modern day popularity game brought on by pathetic idiocy sites like Facebook and Twits.

    The losers are those that act like high school kids, or even heck, dress like them at an adult age. You should know better than that, you all should act your age.

    Sheen just rebelled. Whats wrong with that? So you don't like rebelliousness? Oh but you like government overturns brought on by Google execs... I don't get it and I do, you're the losers.

    Sheen will be fine, rock on brotha.
