Dr. Oz brought up the topic of Charlie Sheen’s very public meltdown last year and he asked Charlie why he felt it happened.

Charlie Sheen told Dr. Oz that after a few seasons of working on the hit comedy Two and a Half Men, things on the set began to change.

As a physician, Dr. Oz said he would have looked at Charlie Sheen and told him it was time to get help, but notes that he did not do that at the time.

Dr. Oz is not sure that qualifies as getting the professional help that he needed, especially since it pretty much fell apart.
