The Real Reason We Don’t Hear About Emilio Estevez Anymore

The Real Reason We Don’t Hear About Emilio Estevez Anymore


Emilio Estevez was once listed among Hollywood’s
most popular actors. Born into a screen-savvy family that included
Martin and Charlie Sheen and raised among other rising stars, Estevez was part of the
“Brat Pack,” a young crowd of A-list actors that graced the screen in a string of hit
films during the ’80s and early ’90s. In recent years, however, Estevez has seemingly
slipped off the pop culture radar. Here’s how it happened. The Outsider Estevez starred in some of the most beloved
flicks of the mid-’80s, and even though the popularity of those pics has lasted for generations,
he’s been resistant to rejoining his former castmates for the celebratory cast reunions
that have taken place over the years. According to fellow Breakfast Club alum Molly
Ringwald, he’s the only one who doesn’t keep in touch with the others, even when there
aren’t any cameras around. She told Australia’s The Morning Show: “The only person I don’t really see is Emilio
Estevez. He really won’t have anything to do with anything
having to do with this movie… He’s just like, ‘That’s the past, and that’s
not really what I want to do.'” As for why he refuses to get nostalgic with
the rest of the pack, it’s hard to say. He’s certainly shown some social media support
for another fan favorite, The Mighty Ducks, by live-tweeting a crucial match-up involving
the Anaheim Ducks with some familiar “quack, quack” terminology. “We’re the Ducks!” “The Mighty Ducks!” Man at Work Like a lot of Hollywood stars, Estevez has
invested in side businesses to keep himself busy when he’s not working on films. In his case, he quietly owned a vineyard in
Malibu making Pinot Noir and other vintages for several years with his former fiancée,
Sonja Magdevski. As he told The Hollywood Reporter, he and
Magdevski initially bonded over making wine together. He explained: “On our first date, I dug the holes and she
planted the vines. There was never any grandiose plan to start
a winery.” Things escalated from there, and they established
Casa Dumetz Wines in 2004, complete with a Los Alamos tasting room and appearances at
high-profile food and wine festivals. The couple ran the business for over a decade
before their split, and he eventually sold the vineyard in 2016. The Wars at Home There’s no doubt that Charlie Sheen has emerged
as the more well-known of the Sheen/Estevez children, but these days he’s more infamous
than famous. Sheen has very publicly struggled with issues
of addiction, relationship woes, and financial crises, and Estevez has said that he believes
his duty is to provide a healthy lifestyle example for his problem-plagued sibling. He told The Sunday Times in 2011: “All I can do for Charlie, and I can’t live
his life for him, is to try to be an example. But really, I was a pretty poor one. As a kid, I was smart enough to be surreptitious
about all my misbehavior, or at least stealthy. But it means that my opinions carry little
weight with Charlie.” That’s not the only crisis Emilio’s been dealing
with on the homefront. In an open letter to fans of his film The
Way in 2015, Estevez revealed that he and his family had banded together to support
his father Martin Sheen through the quadruple bypass surgery to repair his heart. That was only a month after Charlie Sheen
revealed that he had been diagnosed with HIV, and according to Martin Sheen, the family
came together to support the actor’s decision to reveal his struggle with the disease. The Mighty Duck Although both Charlie and Martin Sheen got
their second career winds on the small screen — starring in The West Wing and Two and
a Half Men, respectively — Estevez has shied away from television, even at a time when
it’s arguably at a golden era for actors of his ilk. Estevez did come in for single-episode guest
stints on each of those series, but most of his TV-related work has been behind the lens,
directing several episodes of shows like CSI: NY and Numbers. The New Way Estevez has also written and directed several
of his own feature films, including the 1990 action-comedy caper pic Men at Work, which
featured himself alongside his brother. His crowning achievement came in 2006 with
his Golden Globe-nominated historical biopic Bobby, about the assassination of Senator
Robert F. Kennedy — an event which Estevez considered to be of grave importance to American
history. His most recent effort, the aforementioned
The Way from 2010, featured Estevez alongside his father, who starred as a grieving parent
on a spiritual adventure in France while retrieving his son’s ashes. He’s also been working to make Cincinnati,
Ohio a new hotspot for Hollywood movies. In 2016, Estevez made a rare appearance at
the Sundance Film Festival to speak to members of the Cincinnati Film Commission about his
hopes to bolster the city’s film industry opportunities as a nod to his father’s upbringing
in nearby Dayton, Ohio. Estevez himself has put his money where his
mouth is on this issue, as he shot his as-yet-unreleased pic Johnny Longshot in the city. Stakeout Estevez has found his name and face on the
cover of many a tabloid over the years, particularly when it came to the dissolutions of his relationships
with ex-fiancée Demi Moore and his former wife, pop starlet Paula Abdul. Considering the crowd he kept company with
— and the wild antics of his brother, no doubt — Estevez said he faced allegations
in the court of public opinion that he was a “partier and a womanizer,” but that it just
wasn’t true. After suffering the spotlight, Estevez has
lost interest in maintaining his celebrity — or even knowing who the paparazzi are
following now. Even so, he’s admitted to looking himself
up online and regretting it almost instantly. As he told The Guardian: “When journalists think that actors don’t
read what is written about them, they are mistaken. I would put my name in a Google site and see
what came up and often it was very hurtful. Hollywood is guilty of turning out s***. I’ve turned it out myself, but what the journalists
don’t do is to take a moment to think that maybe this actor has got a family and he has
got to feed them.” No wonder he’s been so shy lately … Thanks for watching! Click the Looper icon to subscribe to our

  2. I always thought Emilio was a sweet down to earth guy. Paula Abdul said “He was the best really!” And always showered her with gifts. Seems like a really decent human being who is just trying to do what’s right for himself. I still love him in The Breakfast Club!!

  3. So there we were waiting to use the pay phone, when the man inside turns around and tips his hat…like this.

    And who do you think guy was?

    Emilio Estives, the Mighty Ducks man. I swear to God. I was like, Emilliooooooo!

  4. Emilio Estevez is a legend…RepoMan, Breakfast Club, St Elmos Fire, Wisdom, Maximum Overdrive, Stakeout, Young Guns, Men At Work, Mighty Ducks, Loaded Weapon 1….I miss this guy

  5. living in the past leaves no time to live in the present. perhaps it's a good thing we haven't heard anything.

    the way the video started made me think, "perhaps part of the reason we don't see him is because acting IS in his past and it makes no sense to reminisce or dally (or regret) unless there's something to glean from it. there's better things to do."

  6. Hey, the quick and simple answer is that he never had any talent to begin with and that fact eventually caught up with him and he was dropped as a viable actor.

  7. He can't get any rolls because he won't stop shaving his eyebrows. It's one of the side effects of the pesticides used in marijuana growing. All you guys who look like this need to know that you're not cool looking and everybody knows that you are smoking weed, Dumb_ss ! EVERYBODY.

  8. He is actually the older brother. Because he's shorter most people think he's the younger one. He's always been the sane & grounded member of the famous clan. Quietly plying his many talents. That's EXACTLY why he's not all screwed up. He doesn't need "The white hot spotlight!" More power to him. Would like to see him in anything he felt worthy of his talents though. He's a very natural & believable actor & real person. I think? I personally don't ACTUALLY know the man. Wish I did though. He's a stand-up guy. That's for sure!

    Well I don't know about any of these players that you're talkin about this is a real bad thing going on at the Cowboys defense is what's going to win the game the problem here is the cap the cap is destroying the NFL was too many injuries we know that already these players come in we don't have the quality backups that we used to have because of a cap and it seems like Rodger Goodell is not going to do anything about this show Cowboys whoever you sign it doesn't matter because injuries is what takes over the game when you start getting all these injuries the whole team it's like lose your running back and you don't have a quality back to fill in the Cowboys had the kid from the Redskins 46 he was very good but they got rid of them and then NFL is so wrapped up with this cap and they cannot perform and play to the the best that they could be with all these injuries and then you have these cheap backups Arab paid little money unexpected to do a big job there's really nothing much to say or talk about anymore I've had it with this whole fucking thing already with the way the rules are some of the rules are really terrible horrible the fuck up the game but nobody wants to change them so you know what everybody else can watch it but when I see that the Cowboys don't get any injuries during the season for instance last year has he had six games that he was suspended take a look at the numbers on those six games that the Cowboys had on offense it was fucking horrible and right now if the Cowboys do not sign Lawrence to a big contract Cowboy world and all the fans are going to be very upset because you guys are going to get wiped out with no defense of line and a Florence go somewhere else what the Rams did to us with Lawrence was a taste imagine without him you're done son and I'm done watching the game because as long as his ass hole of a fucking commissioner who doesn't have any consistency of any fucking thing with the game while you don't want you can have the game because I'm sick and tired of getting frustrated that these guys can't pay anybody beside the star players they have to pay and they're going to get most of the money and then what what happens then you got to come in with some fucking guys that are that's a waste of time to even talk about this man and signe fucking thing does Commissioners from hell he can't get shit done cuz a lot of rules in the game that are wrong right now what's going on with the game fucking helmet-to-helmet what the hell is that that only going to take a player out and his career is over and you can snap his neck and you put them away for life you can be done what the hell is wrong with this league or is it that you like to see injuries because the bastard does the NFL has right now is a method that is always going to hurt the players they're going to get injured there's no question about it I'm done the cab will not let the NFL play at its full potential it's a simple as that if you don't understand that and These Guys these players you know there to get the trouble you know you look at this guy from the Kansas City what he did hit or kick the girl hit the girl what the hell is that what is so professional athlete and a man don't hit a woman a man that hits a woman is a faget that's the way I look at it unless she comes at you with a gun and she's going to blow your head off or she picks up on machete and she's going to cut your head off then you you could do something but that's not the case none of that was going on I have to say players like this should not be playing in the NFL he's got an eight-game suspension that's it hey I remember a player that hit some young lady in an elevator I believe his name was Ray Rice everybody saw that will his careers all over he'll never play again in the NFL I don't think personally but these are athletes and their gifted and it's either they get hurt on the field will they get in trouble off the field for instance you got a player by the name of David Irving if if he became a true Cowboy that only that he would have a great life and you never know when I see them play you could stop and I said oh my God David Arlen clothes back with Gregory and Lawrence and you get another monster on that line and then we got it they going to Superbowl now that that Scott Linehan has gone fired should have threw his ass out a long time ago but he's finally gone I'm going to give this young kid a chance see if he could pull it off if not we get somebody else that can like a North Turner who's offense of coordinator the nineties only won three Super Bowls all I could say it's all this is for nothing good for nothing players will get paid but they will suffer from various injuries that occur on the field at some of those injuries can haunt them for the rest of their lives and that's the way it goes because the rules in the game are all wrong okay until you get it right you going to hurt these great athletes they are great athletes are athletic people not just anybody's going to get on that football field and perform and do what they've done no way I saw a running back by the name of Everett Schmidt play in a game with a separated shoulder against the New York Giants and I believe he gained over a hundred fifty yards that game to me he's a hero to get out there and perform and being the pain that you were in most players would just walk right off the field and they won't even look back without Emmitt Smith so the thing is to protect the players and limit the injuries you have to change the rules of the game would you know what it'll make it a much better game my vision already told me all these things I've seen it already so I mean you get these teams in opportunity to spend money and get quality backups and get all the whole games going to change because right now with your stars go down you go down real simple it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure it out you know what I mean well enough is enough you can't get it right well I feel bad for the players because I've seen some very very incredible injuries boy and I mean injuries that are going to be with them for the rest of their life because the rules you have to change the rules first of all those wide receivers that go out and catch a pass well go back in the seventies the rules with different defensive back in and then a wide receiver all the way down the field like 30 40 yards down there be no penalty today you will 5 yards are you going to be on that the defensive guy can't touch you did you go back to the way it used to be no cap no cap let the teams be free to pay for Quality backups the game is going to hell okay and that's the way it is if they don't get it right and do the right thing salsa for the players also it's all for the players really saying it's all about the players is if you don't have these athletes you have no games sucker well the teams that spent a lot of money on quarterbacks you know I Green Bay of course in New Orleans but it's funny because Russell Wilson I seen Russell Wilson the other day on TV who the Yankee had in everything in the end with the Yankees should wow how he what he was saying how he loves the Yankees and how he used to watch him and all that well I mean the Yankees are my team in baseball what else has very little kid I used to go to Yankee Stadium 3 things I love that Yankee Stadium beside the games was the food the hot dogs the pretzels are those big steak fries I have to say one thing it would only be fair to all NFL teams and owners if the NFL gave them the opportunity to be able to spend money it's like the players that they want and not have to worry about a cap and this and that which is totally absurd ridiculous and has no place in this league right now that we need a cap it's actually destroying the the teams because how the hell you think you're going to play when you're when you're stars go down are you going to bring in some cheap backups this is not the way the NFL used to be different Palmetto Pete Rozelle had it going course he couldn't be there forever but ditto he set the you set the standards and you know they came in and change them so just screw up the NFL everything else players getting hurt they need to do something about this personally I do not want to see no players injured you know it just changes the game and changes everything that team is that's worked for it's very hard to have that same hi performance player when he gets hurt the player that's going to replace him the player that's going to replace him is not a high price player you they don't they can't afford that because of the cat

  10. Rembrandt van Rijn

    Same reason many people switch jobs, they want to do something else. Some actors get tired of the limelight and just want to do their job and be left alone.

  11. Hardly Anyone Mentioned "The Outsiders" That Was The Shit!! When they were ALLL Young & Blew Up…Now this is One To Grow on…Martin & Charlie Had Longevity Also SKY Rocketed Elected to CHANGE Their Names to Charlie from Carlos & Sheen from Esteves Along w/ Pops….Emelio Chose to Represent his Nationality/ Ethnicity & Did Not have Longevity like Brother and Father.. I'm jus Sayin, Something to Think about, We're Talkin bout Hollywood…Peace

  12. He doesn't want to look in the past because he wants to move forward and look to things he can do in the future. Holding on to something you have done in the past could hold you back. Also he decided he wanted to make films for himself that are meaningful. You could have done better research. It's not a secret.

  13. The bit at the end about what's been written about him and how it affects careers is another example of the God Ego of Hollywood and the Media. They don't care who they hurt as long as they can manipulate.

  14. We was just hacking on you billy, we heard you killed a man, why? “He was hacking on me!”😂😂
    Best William h Bonney 👌🏻👌🏻

  15. He’s a normal guy, didn’t let fame go to his head. & one of the best actors of my childhood at least.
    “Make ya famous” 😉

  16. Hmm, that's interesting, I wondered what happened to Emilio and what he was doing. I'd like him to come back with some more acting though, if he gets something he wants to do. I respect that he's stepped back, but it would be good to see him again in a good role.

  17. I have no respect for this guy. His daddy got him all his acting jobs. He has no real acting talent. He was never a good actor. He is just a wimpy Sheen sibling like his H.I.V. JUNKY brother Charlie.

  18. Hollywood went racial over the last 20 year's. His last name Estevez got in the way. Just saying what everybody was thinking.

  19. Not exactly the bets movies..His few roles early in his career were funny.Stakeout was good tho Dreyfus shined…

  20. Makes total sense about the tabloids and journalist… They all write pure bull shit and lies to sell their shit papers and magazines. I would not spend one red cent on those bull shit papers or magazines. They are the ones who create and support those paparazzi bastards that invade the privacy of our famed celebs. Those low life sons of a bitches caused the death of Princess Dianna. They all SUCK!!!
    Come on people… Stop buying them bull shit mags and papers, put them all out of business and kill off the paparazzi bastards!!!

  21. Estvez was and is a second rate actor. He never amounted to anything and faded off to wherever he may be. Good riddance to his brother , father and any other siblings that may pop up…

  22. The Wide Awake Club

    I would have thought that it was because he never signed his souls to the Hollywood devil. He doesn't seem the type of guy to steal children to sacrifice.
