Charlie Sheen Reveals He Once Tried to Hunt Down the Loch Ness Monster | “Unfortunately, Didn’t See Any Sign of Nessie”
As a kid, we believed dinosaurs were real. So are Unicorns, Lassie, and Loch Ness monsters. But Charlie Sheen is one adult who traveled to Scotland on a hunt to find the monster. The 47-year-old actor flew from the States and hit the Scottish Highlands in a bid to find the Loch Ness Monster. Yes, the Hollywood actor actually believed the monster exists, and even went in search of it. He based his hunt on a fairytale castle on the southern shores of the loch. Bizarre but this is what beliefs can make you do.
The Two and a Half Men actor is known for frequent hell-raising outbursts and wild antics. Not sure whether he was sane to go for a hunt of a mythical creature, but the man really crossed the line when he climbed a Nessie sculpture on a roundabout, near Inverness. Sheen's behavior naturally shocked the onlookers. In 2013, he grabbed his pals, Todd Zeile and Brian Peck, and in a true Charlie Sheen fashion, he advanced to hunt down the mythical long-necked creature as if it existed.
The odd fellow shared his madcap Nessie mission on Twitter with a picture where he posed along with what he called "hunting gear" and a bronze battle helmet with his friend, Brian Peck, on top of a wooden Nessie structure. The snap read, "Once again MIT grant-sanctioned archeologists Pekk & Sheen rig battle gear for tonight's sortie on Loch Ness." His obsession is unbelievable.
A Twitter user, @campfireNguitar commented under Sheen's post, "Next time you head over on an expedition, take me with you." Another user, @ShannonForTrump, asked Sheen, "Did you meet Allen while searching for Loch Ness?" The expedition lasted only 24 hours. The Anger Management star is not known to be the most level-headed individual so his sudden travel plans did not surprise people. While in Scotland, he ventured out for the evening on a boat in Loch Ness near Inverness with their "gear" - a leg of lamb, a big hook and a bottle of whisky.
The castle's general manager, Lavinia Turner, confirmed that Sheen and friends went on the Loch during their stay. She reported to Daily record, per Daily Mail, "All I can say is that Mr. Sheen and his party were perfect guests and thoroughly enjoyed their trip to Scotland and Loch Ness." She added, "They had a wonderful and relaxing time but unfortunately didn't see any sign of Nessie, although I am sure they will be back in the future to try again." A report by Daily Record also claims that Hollywood's bad boy, Sheen, may have scared off Loch Ness and it went hiding. Hahaha!!

MIT grant sanctioned archeologists
Pekk & Sheen,
rig battle gear
for tonight's sortie on
the Loch Ness.
Sheen is an adventurous oddball and the history of Loch Ness has been a source of public intrigue since 1933. Scientists brush it off as nothing more than a myth and a fictitious mind's wishful thinking.
