Bye-bye, tiger blood. Sayonara, "winning."

Charlie Sheen's antics and life in the spotlight may soon be taking a back seat to reality and fatherhood, he says in a new interview with The New York Times.

After his very public implosion following his termination from Two and Half Men, Sheen is preparing to unveil his FX sitcom Anger Management. However, he claims that when Management has completed its run, he'll be ready to hang it up.

He calls the show his "swan song" and says that when it's done, he'll focus on spending time with his young children.

"When I'm done with this business it's just going to be about soccer games and amusement parks. And when this ends, I'm done. This is my swan song."

He adds that he's grateful for the fame and fortune he's accrued in his career, but that he's ready to start being himself and not hide behind characters.

"I've been doing this 30 years. And there's a lot more out there to do than make-believe, you know? I mean, I'm grateful. I've got a dream life as a direct result of television, you know? But at some point you just get tired of wearing somebody else's clothes, saying somebody else's words and working in somebody else's space. I'm also aware of the fact that you don't get these kinds of shots in the same lifetime. You're only supposed to have one hit show, unless you're Kelsey Grammer."
