Emilio Estevez is an actor, writer, and director. He comes from a Hollywood family. His dad is Martin Sheen and his younger brother is Charlie Sheen. He could have used his dad’s stage name to break into the scene and gain a foothold. Instead he decided to keep the family name to avoid being known as Martin Sheen’s son. He was the leader of the Brat Pack and a certified movie star in the ‘80s and ‘90s. He was wildly successful, appearing in The Outsiders, The Breakfast Club, St. Elmo’s Fire, Young Guns, and the Mighty Ducks trilogy. He was able to transition from a teen icon into an established Hollywood presence. Then his career stalled and he hasn’t been in anything relevant in years, and his brother’s career took off. Emilio did everything right. He worked hard, he wrote and directed his own projects, he appeared in franchises and family blockbusters, while his little brother did massive amounts of drugs and slept with prostitutes and porn stars and raised a finger to the world. And Emilio Estevez faded away while Charlie Sheen took over the world, one bad sitcom at a time. At one point Emilio Estevez was hosting the party, now he’s just lucky to be invited, and Charlie Sheen is the party.
