Raise your hand if you think Charlie Sheen should get married again.

No one?

Apparently you aren't alone, because Sheen himself agrees with you. The former "Two and a Half Men" star's new interview with Katie Couric airs today, and during it he asserts that three marriages are enough for him.

When Couric asked Sheen whether he thinks he may ever tie the knot again, the actor said, “In baseball, when you strike out three times ... it’s a golden sombrero. Four times is a platinum sombrero. ... I’m not wearing the platinum sombrero of marriage.”

He immediately amended that thought, however, saying he'd rethink his position if Couric were to offer.

“What are you gettin’ at? Uh-oh, Page Six!" he joked -- or so we hope. “That’d be awesome! Just the rumor — wouldn’t it?"

Couric didn't seem quite as forthcoming about the matter though.

"Maybe for you," she responded.

Sheen's three marriages have all ended in divorce. His first engagement, to actress Kelly Preston, ended in 1990 after he accidentally shot Preston in the arm. In 1995, Sheen married Donna Peele, but they divorced after it was revealed that Sheen was a client of Heidi Fleiss' Hollywood escort service. Sheen famously gave marriage another try in 2002 when he got hitched to actress Denise Richards. They divorced because of Sheen's notorious drug and alcohol abuse and threats of violence. His latest effort came in 2008 to socialite Brooke Mueller, who later filed a restraining order against Sheen, worrying that he was "currently insane."

Sheen's interview with Couric airs today on "Katie." The promo features the two discussing Sheen's partying past, with the "Anger Management" actor saying, "Some of it's memorable, but a lot of it's very cringe-able."
