Charlie Sheen admits he "cringes" at some of his behaviour.

CHARLIE Sheen blames testosterone cream for his bizarre behaviour after getting fired from 'Two and a Half Men'.

The 50-year-old actor infamously ranted about being a "warlock", "winning" and having "tiger blood" in a series of outbursts in 2011 and though he felt "superhuman" at the time, he believes the hormone supplement had affected his behaviour.

In an interview airing on 'The Dr. Oz Show' today, he said: "That was a very specific period of time that did feel very out-of-body and very just detached from all things real.

"I felt superhuman during some of that.

"It was a lot of highs and lows. I was taking a lot of testosterone cream, and I think I went too far with it. It was kind of like a borderline . . . not a 'roid rage, but a 'roid disengage."

The 'Anger Management' actor - who even went on a tour titled 'My Violent Torpedo of Truth/ Defeat In Not an Option' at the height of his bizarre conduct - admits he "cringes" at some of his behaviour, which included publicly criticising 'Two and a Half Men' creator Chuck Lorre, and though he enjoyed some "empowering" times, he didn't like how angry he got.

He added: "That's the stuff that I do look at [and] cringe a little . . . It was nice to give people a bunch of slogans and T-shirts and all that.

"[But] the rest of it was a lot of work.

"There were things about that person that were empowering, that were vibrant . . . but I didn't like the anger. I tend to be victimised by my anger at times."
