CHARLIE SHEEN is telling everybody he’s not crazy anymore. O-kaaaaaay. Let’s give your words the benefit of the doubt, Charlie, then we’ll decide.

The former “Two And A Half Men” star talked to the media at the FOX Television Critics Association party in Pasadena, California and told them he should now be regarded as a more lucid individual after having recovered from his seriously skewed meltdown in the last year and a half. Maybe he’s trying to convince everybody he’s now ready to get down to some serious work and regain his status as an A-list celebrity…

“I’m not crazy anymore. That was an episode,”

Charlie informed reporters from Access Hollywood.

“I think I’m a different person than I was yesterday. Everything is a lot more mellow and focused and much more rooted in reality.”

And reality just happens to be a starring role in FX show, “Anger Management,” which the 46-year-old former ’80s matinee idol will start shooting at least 10 episodes in the next six weeks.

“I’ve been at this 30 years. It’s nice to be in a situation where the people I’m working with are excited about my input. That wasn’t the case for a long time.”

Wow. Charlie has been in the business for 30 years? That’s a hell of a long time, and considering he took some time off for a meltdown at the start of last year, that’s a pretty impressive record if you compare it with that of other younger, less experienced stars (yoo-hoo, Britney Spears, Lindsay Lohan, and Demi Lovato!).

“I’ve been spending a lot of time with the kids, a lot of time with the family and I’m getting back into work mode,”

Charlie revealed.

“I’m a single guy hanging out with my children.”

Yup. Nothing like family, and the kids you have to pay child support for to keep you grounded…and raring to earn a living to keep from filing for bancruptcy.

Good for you, Charlie Sheen! Let’s hope 2012 is your good luck year of lucid intervals…
