has opened up about which movies he chooses to make.
Sheen spoke to the Los Angeles Times
about his wide range of roles, admitting that he elects to participate in a film only if it appeals to him.
"I suppose [the range] reflects my taste as an audience member," said Sheen. "I'm as likely when I'm deciding what film I want to watch to go to the small art-house cinema as I am to go to the big multiplex."
The Midnight in Paris
actor continued: "And I don't see why my acting career shouldn't reflect my taste as well. I do things that I would like to go see ultimately. They're all things that I'd like to watch myself, and therefore I should like to be in them."
Sheen recently revealed that he loved filming Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris on location in the French capital
, asserting that making the movie was not "like work".
The 42-year-old is currently dating his Midnight in Paris co-star Rachel McAdams
. The couple made their first public appearance
at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
Sheen can be seen next in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1
, in US and UK cinemas on November 18.
