Sheen's Pre-Denise Firefight

Charlie Sheen was at the Cannes Film Festival on Sunday for a special 20th anniversary screening of the hit film, 'Platoon.' A new DVD edition hits stores May 30.

Sheen was asked what life was like for him when the film was made 20 years ago.

"Everything was normal," Charlie joked, in a reference to the current controversy over his divorce battle with Denise Richards. "I was just trying to be a working actor and do good work and be respected in the film community... It changed my life."

'Platoon' won four Academy Awards, including best picture and best director for Oliver Stone.
