Martin Sheen understands the "hell" son Charlie Sheen is going through.
He believes that Charlie, despite being 45, is still "emotionally" a child. "Because when you're addicted, you don't grow emotionally. So. when you get clean and sober you're starting at the moment you started using drugs or alcohol," the actor tells the U.K's Telegraph magazine. "You're emotionally crippled."
Sheen, 70, has been through similar difficulties, he concedes: "I know what hell he's living in. I've had psychotic episodes in public. One of them was on camera – the opening scene of Apocalypse Now. ... I know what Charlie is going through. And when you do something like that, that is out of control, that's the most difficult thing. You have to have courage."

Charlie Sheen's father, Martin, has already made an appearance on Two and a Half Men. Now Charlie's older brother is getting in on the family action.
PEOPLE has learned that Emilio Estevez will guest star in an upcoming episode of the CBS hit comedy – but he won't play a relative of Sheen's character, Charlie Harper. Instead, Estevez will play one of Harper's old drinking buddies.
"My dad did the show a couple of years ago," Sheen says, "so it was only a matter of time until someone of my brother's talent could also come and play in our sandbox."
