May 27, 2015 Charlie Sheen, Martin Sheen

Charlie Sheen's always rubbing people the wrong way, even his dad. Martin Sheen revealed to Radio Times that he was at loss for how to help his son Charlie during the latter's public meltdown in 2011.

"What he was going through at that time, we were powerless to do much," the actor said, recalling his son's erratic behavior and bizarre Twitter rants. "Except to pray for him and lift him up."

Sheen says he has tried to be "as present as possible" for Charlie but taht there were "many things that the public was not aware of" at the time.

"Only those of us that knew him understood what was going on," he shared. "I'm talking about steroids, at that time. He was in a very desperate situation. And he was doing what he felt would get him out of it going public. And it was very painful. No less painful for him."

He also talked about Charlie's alcohol addiction, admitting that no one else could fight it for him except himself.

"You can assure them you're there and you love them, but you cannot effect change," Sheen said. "That's your ego, for the most part. You pray for a moment of clarity, you trust in a higher power, and you never, ever give up hope. Because that is a measure of despair."
