Sheen also had some strong words for ‘Two And a Half Men’ creator Chuck Lorre.
Never one for shying away from controversy, Charlie Sheen gave a bizarre interview to an Australian radio station this morning, where he took credit for Woody Harrelson’s entire career and called out Chuck Lorre, again.
But perhaps more surprisingly, Sheen had some kind words for Ashton Kutcher, the actor who replaced him after he was fired from sitcom ‘Two And a Half Men’.

Sheen went public with his HIV battle in 2015, four years after he learned of his diagnosis.
More than a year after he went public with his HIV diagnosis and over half a decade since his infamous ‘tiger blood’ meltdown, Charlie Sheen has revealed in a new interview that he contemplated suicide upon learning his medical condition.
The 51 year old spoke with Michael Strahan in a discussion aired on ABC on Wednesday (January 11th), and they touched upon the moment that Sheen discovered in 2011 that he was HIV positive.
When he found out, the former ‘Two and a Half Men’ and ‘Anger Management’ star said he “immediately wanted to eat a bullet,” but that “my mom was there. I wouldn't do that in front of her or let her find me to clean up that mess.” Discovering his condition led him into a spiral of substance abuse that he described as a “suicide run”.

Sheen was interviewed in depth by Piers Morgan at a London theatre this weekend.
Charlie Sheen is adamant that he has not infected any of his sexual partners with HIV since his diagnosis.

Sheen went public with his HIV diagnosis in November 2015, but confirmed that he had been diagnosed a number of years before that. Morgan directly asked him whether he had had unprotected sex since discovering his HIV positive status, which he denied.

Representatives for the ‘Two and a Half Men’ and ‘Anger Management’ star have not commented about the new reports at the time of writing.

Sheen says his income has dropped significantly in recent years.
Actor Charlie Sheen has asked courts to reduce the amount of child support he pays to ex-wife Brooke Mueller for the former couple's twins, Bob and Max. According to court documents obtained by People, Sheen currently pays Mueller $55,000 as part of their 2011 divorce agreement.
Charlie Sheen is asking for his child support payments to be reduced.
In the papers Sheen states that his child support payments should be reduced because his income has decreased dramatically from when the agreement was originally made. Back in 2011, Sheen was earning $613,000 per month for comedy 'Two and a Half Man', before his departure.
Scottine Ross, with whom Sheen split in November 2014, alleges that he didn't tell her about his HIV-positive status, among other accusations.
Charlie Sheen’s ex-fiancé Scottine Ross has filed a lawsuit against him, accusing the actor of assault, battery, false imprisonment and failing to disclose to her that he is HIV-positive.

The ex-'Two and a Half Men' actor was so impassioned by Williams' suspension that he posted an open letter to Twitter.
The recent suspension of NBC news anchor Brian Williams has ignited a powder keg of differing opinions. You might consider Charlie Sheen to be one of the less likely public figures to intervene on the debate – but he has, and on Williams’ side. Passionately, to say the least.
TMZ was first to report the bizarre open letter, which was penned by the former ‘Two and a Half Men’ actor and posted to Twitter on Wednesday. He describes Williams as a “victim of a transparent and vile witch hunt” and denounces his bosses at NBC as “cowards”.

Could Charlie Sheen return to Two and a Half Men for a one-off? Reply hazy, try again later.
After Charlie Sheen’s fallout with the producers of Two and a Half Men, his return to the show looked about as likely as Brad Pitt putting on a tutu and dancing the Macarena across Sunset Boulevard. More recently, however, several online sources have hinted that it’s looking more and more likely – the Two and a Half Men thing, not the Macarena, though we’d all love to see it anyway. For his part, Sheen apparently has no qualms about returning for the series finale.
Sheen is open to returning for one final farewell.
“I would definitely do it, yeah, yeah,” he told Extra. “If they’ll still have me, I will be there. Yeah, I owe it some measure of closure. I owe it to the fans… I just think it makes sense.”

Despite the 49 year-old's character dying in the CBS sitcom, he still wants to make a final appearance during in its final season.
Even though Charlie Sheen's beloved character Charlie Harper died on the CBS sitcom 'Two and a Half Men,' is there still a possibility that he will somehow make a return to the show? It seems the 49 year-old actor wants this to happen.
Sheen was fired from the sitcom in 2011
Sheen, who was famously fired from 'Two and a Half Men' back in 2011 by its creator Chuck Lorre, recently revealed in an interview with TV Guide that he would like to reprise his character on the show, especially since the series' final season approaches.

Good old Charlie Sheen - always throwing around his cash for good causes.
Charlie Sheen has waded in to the 'Tip War' involving NFL star LeSean McCoy, claiming he's offered $1,000 to the waiter who apparently received just 20 cents in tip from the Philadelphia Eagles.
Hey, It's Charlie Sheen!
The original story did the rounds earlier this week when waiter Rob Egg's boss posted a receipt online that showed McCoy - a millionaire football player - had tipped 20 cents on total bill of $61.56 meal at the PYT restaurant in Philadelphia. Apparently McCoy felt he was mistreated at the restaurant and although Rob admits to forgetting one of the group's appetizers, he claims McCoy and his pals were disrespectful from the moment they sat down.

The actor takes centre-stage in yet another strange occurrence.
Charlie Sheen has been caught on camera interacting with people at a Taco Bell drive-thru. The actor, who is no stranger to occasionally unhinged and bizarre behaviour is seen walking over to drunkenly greet two people waiting in their car. The passengers spot Sheen and call him over as they start filming.
The Two and Half Men actor sees them and comes ambling over through the bushes to say "hello." Sheen doesn't seem to be accompanied by any friends or security as he walks over to make friends with the driver. However, TMZ has pointed out that his typically chauffeur-driven Mercedes Benz is waiting in the background.
"Jayden, I'm Charlie," the 49-year-old says as he shakes the driver's hand, adding "Sorry, I'm so f**king hammered." Sheen then begins to casually have a chat with the two passengers through the window.

Charlie Sheen went in search of the Loch Ness Monster (Nessie) whilst on a flying visit to Scotland. Staying overnight at an ancient Castle, the Anger Management' star kept his temper and was a "perfect guest".
Charlie Sheen went in hunt of the Loch Ness Monster on a recent trip to Scotland. The actor flew into the country for just one day (4th July) specifically to track down Nessie.
Charlie Sheen at the premiere of Scary Movie 5.
Sheen flew to Scotland for a single night and jumped in a boat the minute he arrived at Loch Ness, according to The Sun. He visited the Scottish Loch with his friends Brian Pekk and Todd Zeile (TMZ reported).
Spoiler alert: he didn't find anything.
Charlie Sheen – actor, viral video sensation and… monster hunter? Sheen jetted off to Scotland this week, not just in need of some R&R, but also in pursuit of Nessie, apparently. The actor loaded up pals Todd Zelie and Brian Peck on his private jet and flew everyone off to Nessie’s home. Once there, the trio reportedly hired a boat and took it out to hunt for the mysterious prehistoric beast. As is usually the case with these things, they came up empty-handed, but the bottle of scotch they took along on the lake probably made for ample entertainment.
The trip might have been fun...
After the unsuccessful hunt, Sheen and co. stayed at the historic Aldourie Castle, before leaving the very next day. Hopefully it was the disappointment of an unsuccessful Nessie hunt and not a bad vacation experience that scared them. According to The Sun, the castle’s general manager, Lavinia Turner praised Charlie and his friends on being model guests and hopes to welcome them back sometime.

A professional disagreement between actors Charlie Sheen and Selma Blair has resulted in Blair leaving 'Anger Management'; it seems highly likely that it was at the behest of Sheen.
Selma Blair will not be returning to Anger Management a spokesman from the comedy series has announced. Rumours have been circulating about a feud between Blair and the star of Anger Management, Charlie Sheen. The feud was revealed by TMZ on Monday when sources associated with the comedy series said Sheen would not return to the set if Blair was there.
Reports suggest the argument began when Blair criticised Sheen's work ethic in a meeting with Anger Management executives. Unfortunately for Blair, the notoriously irritable actor was informed of her complaint and made it quite clear that, using his powers as one of the show's producers, he would try to have Blair fired.
It was announced yesterday by an Anger Management spokesman that Blair would not be returning to the comedy. Rumours are currently circulating that Sheen has extended an offer to Mila Kunis (girlfriend of Ashton Kutcher, star of Two and a Half Men, a show from which Sheen was fired).

That ceratinly escalated quickly.
After Vivid’s release of her sex tape, Farrah Abraham keeps finding her way onto news feeds, for all the wrong reasons. Case in point: her text message exchange with Charlie Sheen, which Abraham leaked and which only earned her a vitriol-filled letter from the Anger Management star himself. Charlie Sheen might be a public figure by choice, in fact we often hear a lot more about him than we’d like, but he wasn’t thrilled about Abraham leaking their private correspondence to TMZ and he let her know about it – in the only way he could.
“hey, you desperate guzzler of stagnant douche agua,” Sheen’s letter begins on a strong note. “I truly do not recall giving you permission to globally reveal any communication between us. Congrats on surviving your lobotomy and an even bigger congratz on the recent attempt at porn. your daughter must be so proud.” And if you think that’s bad, hold on for the rest of the Anger Management star’s letter. It gets even worse.
“Please send my number to middle earth and if allowed, eagerly follow it into said abyss and slam the door behind you. the world will collectively sigh as the pungent memory of you vanishes into the pedestrian troposphere of lame-suck and zero-life.”
Can Amanda Bynes' apparent meltdown really be compared to Charlie Sheen's famous behavior?
Amanda Bynes latest Twitter rant was levelled squarely at drag queen RuPaul, whom the television star described as being as ugly as her father. Bynes had begun the day by referring to writers at People magazine as "faggots," saying, ""Um, Peoplemag Hello? I'm not lost and alone! W H A T T H E F * C K A R E Y O U T A L K I N G A B O U T ? Follow me on twitter you faggots!"
Though she quickly deleted the tweet, RuPaul caught a glimpse of it, replying, "Derogatory slurs are ALWAYS an outward projection of a person's own poisonous self-loathing @AmandaBynes." Of course, Amanda took the bait and responded to RuPaul with a wave of abuse, saying, "My dad is as ugly as RuPaul! So thankful I look nothing like you both! I had nose surgery after my mug shots so my nose and I are gorgeous!"
RuPaul is known for her strong stance on derogatory slurs and told the Huffington Post's Gay Voices last year, "[I]n the ACT UP age we called ourselves queers because we earned the right, we took the word back. But in reality, once you go even deeper, you know, you have to come from intent. And black folks call themselves the n-word all the time. It's because the intent is coming from a place of love. If the intent is coming from a place of hatred, that's different"

Robert Rodriguez's Machete sequel looks, err, interesting.
The trailer has finally been released for Robert Rodriguez's latest action movie: a sequel to 2010's cult-favourite Machete.
The director, who is also responsible for box office hits Sin City and Once Upon a Time in Mexico, hypes his latest follow-up by comparing it to previous successful action series: "We've given the character a much bigger playground. It's going to be like a James Bond movie, with a Bond-style villain", he said, talking to screenrant.com.
Watch the Machete Kills Trailer:
Reloaded for a second instalment that we'll have to wait for until its September release, the trailer tantalises the action-hungry filmgoer, with guns, grit, and girl-on-girl violence. Not to mention the promise of flaming vehicular explosions, over-the-top weaponry, and blistering clichéd one-liners only a blockbuster can deliver.

The bachelor pad will undergo a makeover.
It’s all changes all the time on this show with the latest being a “Two and A Half Men” lady character. After the departure of Charlie Sheen and the final departure of Angus T Jones, the house would have seemed a little empty. But no worries, for apparently the producers will inject a bit of estrogen to remedy the situation.
Though we would personally deem the show worthy of humane euthanasia at this point, the Two and a Half team has apparently gone for an altogether more complicated approach. According to Deadline, the new season will feature a brand new character, as yet uncast, who will play Charlie Harper's long-lost daughter. (That's Sheen's character). She'll show up at the house looking for her father and eventually move in with the two bachelors.
That certainly puts a new spin on the show’s title. What with no half-man and a brand new lady in the picture, there has to be a more appropriate title for this, But mostly, everyone – fan or not – just misses the show’s glory days. Back when the title really made sense and there was some semblance of humor left. But after Sheen left in a blaze of glory and Jones was booted off soon after for bashing the show, the question remains – even with an interesting female character in the mix, is there any hope for Two and a Half Men.

The singer is turning to acting, but will she be any good?
Lady GaGa will be making her big-screen bow, but our first glimpse of her in Machete Kills is a bit disappointing. She’s just on the screen for a bit, and then she’s gone. Now we’ll HAVE to fork out to see the film.
The trailer actually focuses more on some of the film’s other stars, who, admittedly, have dedicated their lives to a career in acting etc etc. Danny Trejo, Sofia Vergara, Michelle Rodriguez, Amber Heard, Charlie Sheen, Antonio Banderas, Jessica Alba, Demian Bichir, Alex Vega, Vanessa Hudgens, Cuba Gooding Jr., William Sadler, Marko Zaror, and Mel Gibson all make an appearance in someway or another. For instance, Gibson plays a crazy arms dealer, and Sheen, totally ridiculously, plays the President of The United States. We get to see him shooting a big gun, and, let’s face it, we all want to see Obama with a massive gun, so there’ that. Sheen (Mr. President) recruits Trejo (Machete, who kills) to take down Gibson (arms dealer), because obviously, no one else can get he job done.

The actor says "call me Carlos" for his next role in Machete Kills.
Sheen changes name. Actor Charlie Sheen has decided to drop his screen name for the upcoming movie Machete Kills, instead reverting back to the name his father gave him; Carlos Estevez. The actor Americanised his name, just as his father Martin Sheen had done before him, in order to appeal more to Hollywood executive and American audiences, however he has decided to go back to his roots for his next appearance.
The upcoming Robert Rodriguez movie will see the actor portray the American president and in order to get into the mood of the Latino action thriller, Sheen has decided to revert back to his Latin American roots, despite taking on the most American of roles. TMZ first broke the news, obtaining a screenshot from the opening credits that sees the former Two and a Half Men star assume his birth name. Interestingly enough, this will be the first time that Charlie has assumed his birth name in any acting role.
Charlie's dad, Martin Sheen, was born Ramón Antonio Gerardo Estevez, but changed to the more American audience-friendly name in order to gain more exposure in Hollywood. Despite retaining this name throughout his career the veteran actor never changed his name legally and thus his children were all born with the name Estevez. Unlike his brother Emilio, Charlie decided to follow his father's example and use a more American-sounding name; a decision that worked tremendously in his favour.

The pair are working out the future of 3-year-old Max and Bob with the help of the LA court.
The tale of Charlie Sheen’s kids continues. After the twins got taken away from Brooke Mueller, due to her persistent abuse of prescription drugs, and placed in the care of Denise Richards, the court, Sheen and Richards herself are in the process of figuring out a more permanent living situation for the kids. The actors met up at an L.A. area court last week to discuss the matter, E!News reports.
Both Richards and Sheen were very formal, sporting all black ensembles and dark glasses when they entered the building. However, beyond the fact that the meeting did happen, nothing else has been revealed to the media. Sheen’s lawyer Mark Gross revealed that the judge issued an order stating that none of the parties involved or their lawyers could comment on the case. That was probably a wise move, considering the extensive coverage the case has been getting ever since the twins were taken away from Mueller.
Meanwhile, Mueller is still checked into the UCLA Center, since the incident during which the children were taken away a couple of weeks ago. She is expected to move straight to a residential treatment facility – also known as rehab. The twins, Max and Bob, are currently living with Richards, along with their two half-sisters.
Who knows what will happen now
Brooke Mueller’s rep has confirmed where and how the celebrity is, explaining that she has been admitted to hospital surrounding prescription drug abuse, US Weekly reports.
"Despite reports to the contrary, Brooke is currently at UCLA Medical Center where she has been since being admitted May 3," a rep for Mueller, 35, explained. "Brooke will be [at UCLA Medical Center] for several more days, and will likely transition directly into a residential treatment facility to get help for prescription drug abuse." Back in December of last year Mueller was treated for an addiction to Adderall. Charlie Sheen, 47, who if of course well versed in this area, said - via his rep - that he "supports the actions of the Department of Children and Family Services," and that he would "fully cooperate and fully participate" in any future proceedings. "He knows Max and Bob are safe in a stable, loving environment with Denise and the boys' sisters.”
“They've been under her care many times before," an insider told Us. "This isn't unusual. Truthfully, Denise and [her daughters] are the only consistency those poor kids have had. [Bob and Max] are her family, and Denise would do anything for them." Mueller is known officially as a sociatlite, which basically just means ‘person’ but with the added caveats: ‘has money’ or ‘knows someone famous’ or ‘slept with someone famous’. More often than not, it’s all three. Bye.

Charlie Sheen's kids were removed from their mother's home, over what has been suspected as a relapse in her substance abuse.
Last Thursday night, the news broke out that Charlie Sheen’s 4-year-old twin boys had been taken from the home of their mother, Brooke Mueller by the LA County Department of Children and Family Services. The home was deemed an unsafe environment by the Department and Max and Bob were taken away and put under the care of Denise Richards, the mother of Sheen’s two daughters, TMZ reports. The process went quickly and painlessly however, with Mueller hardly putting in any resistance, a source close to the family told New York Daily News:
"It just wasn't a stable environment with different nannies coming in and out, and child protective services came in and did their thing, and this is the outcome," a source close to Mueller told the Daily News. "Brooke didn’t have a say in this. They came in, assessed the situation, asked Denise to take the boys, and Brooke agreed."
Mueller has been struggling with substance abuse for several years now, and it has been speculated that this is what led to the children’s removal this time. A court date has been set for next week to determine whether the twins will be returning to their mother, or alternatively, to find a more permanent living situation for the boys. Richards however, didn’t have any problem with taking them in, the source also claims:
Charlie Sheen's sons have been taken into care after their mother's home (Brooke Mueller) was deemed unsafe for children.
Charlie Sheen's twin boys were taken into protective care by the L.A. County Department of Children and Family Services from the home of their mother Brooke Mueller on Thursday (May 2) night, TMZ report. Apparently the Los Angeles officials decided her house was an "unsafe environment" for children, with Sheen's former wife and mother to his daughter, Denise Richards, offering her services as a carer.
According to the sources speaking with TMZ, officials from the Children and Family Services Dept. arrived to Brooke's home on Thursday with a warrant, leaving with 4-year-old Bob and Max. The officials deemed Brooke's home as being unsafe for the children because they suspected she has relapsed into using drugs again, something she's been struggling with for years, and they believed drugs may be in the premise and the children were in genuine danger.
Is Charlie Sheen ready to take care of his kids full-time?

The two-man show will return this fall, with a helfty pay increase for Ashton Kutcher
The long-running CBS series Two and a Half men has been renewed for its eleventh season, which will see a return of the entire cast, though some appearances will be less frequent. Unsurprisingly, Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer have signed on to play their characters again for this go round. It’s a pretty safe deal for both of them and quite lucrative, if we may add, considering that Kutcher has now topped the chart for highest paid sitcom star, with a $700 000 per episode deal, as reported by Us Magazine. That’s still less than previous Two and a Half Men star Charlie Sheen’s $1.2 million per episode salary, but it isn’t a bad deal at all. Yes, a renewal of the show means that both of its stars will be making bank.
Angus T Jones, who plays Jake, on the other hand, isn’t going to be as involved this season, as his role has been demoted to a recurring character. This is still better than the rumors that he would be getting fired, due to some less than affectionate comments he made towards the show earlier this year, though. There are a number of reasons why his presence on the series could have been decreased. While according to CBS entertainment chief Nina Tassler, there are no grudges between Jones and the network, it could be that the relationship is still strained. Additionally, Jones has made comments in the past that he would like to free up some time for college (which seems like a perfectly reasonable decision.) Whatever the reason, the bottom line is that we’ll be seeing less of Jones and presumably more of Kutcher this season. He’s gotta earn that fat paycheck somehow.
Kutcher's days as a celebrity prankster are behind him, as he is now the highest paid actor in TV.
Reese Witherspoon made a nuisance of herself when husband Jim Toth was arrested by police on Friday.
"Do you know who I am?" It's the quote that has left celebrities cringing and police officers grinning with delight over the years. Reese Witherspoon is the latest Hollywood A-lister to use the immortal phrase (almost) before her arrest for DUI in Atlanta early on Friday morning (April 19, 2013). Cops told TMZ.com that they spotted Reese and husband Jim Toth's car, a silver Ford Fusion, weaving in and out of lanes, pulling them over shortly afterwards.
Much to the delight of the arresting officer, and the millions reading gossip blogs in the subsequent days, Reese pulled out the celebrity card. As officers dealt with Jim, Witherspoon asked one cop, "Do you know my name?" The officer answered by saying, "No, I don't need to know your name." The Oscar-winner came back with, "You're about to find out who I am. You are going to be on national news." Of course, it was Reese that ended up on the news, having been arrested and told to attend a court hearing in Atlanta on May 22, 2013.
The actress released a statement apologizing for her behaviour. "Out of respect for the ongoing legal situation, I cannot comment on everything that is being reported right now. But I do want to say I clearly had one drink too many and I am deeply embarrassed about the things I said," she said, adding, "It was definitely a scary situation and I was frightened for my husband, but that was no excuse. I was disrespectful to the officer who was just doing his job. The words I used that night definitely do not reflect who I am. I have nothing but respect for the police and I am very sorry for my behaviour."

Baseball biopic '42' stormed the box-office this weekend, following strong reviews.
In the end, it wasn't even close was it? Baseball biopic '42' surged to the top of the box-office this weekend, earning $27.3 million to comfortably see off the star-studded 'Scary Movie 5.' The movie, starring Chadwick Boseman and Harrison Ford, tells the story of the first black major league baseball player, Jackie Robinson.
Many industry analysts had '42' and 'Scary Movie 5' neck-and-neck going into the weekend's box-office, though the latter had to settle for $15.2 million despite its cast including Lindsay Lohan and Charlie Sheen. Elsewhere, animated movie The Croods took third place for a second week, while horror remake Evil Dead faded to fifth place despite topping the pile last week. Tom Cruise's new big-budget movie Oblivion earned $61.1 million internationally following its launch in 52 countries and should perform strongly once it opens in the U.S on Friday (April 12, 2013).
However, the success of '42' may continue this weekend as Major League players mark the 66th anniversary of Robinson's professional debut by wearing his famous shirt number on Monday. "Think of what a tribute that is for what he accomplished. Every player wearing 42 on his back," said Dan Fellman, head of distribution for Warner Bros. "It's a story that has so much emotion to it. Jackie Robinson's life had such an influence on our country," he added.

Lindsay Lohan arrived at the Scary Movie 5 premiere 30 minutes after the red-carpet was supposed to close.
Lindsay Lohan arrived fashionably late to the premiere of Scary Movie 5 in Hollywood last night. We say fashionably late, what we actually mean is she arrived 30 minutes AFTER the red carpet was due to close and moments before the movie was about to start. Lohan - who is rehab bound - posed for a couple of solo photos before being joined by co-star Charlie Sheen. The actress wore a sleek knee-length dress, which worked well with tousled auburn hair. It's safe to say she was very much the star of the show and photographers jostled for position to get the perfect snap.
Lohan and Sheen exchanged greetings and took pictures together before Sheen left her to her press duties. However, there was little for the waiting journalists as Lohan was rushed into the screening with her publicist in tow, having no time to stop and greet her fans who had congregated outside the theatre holding up 'Team Lohan' signs. Who in their right mind would... forget it. Though Lohan was the main event, the likes of Ashley Tisdale, Simon Rex, Mike Tyson, Heather Locklear, Kate Walsh and Jerry O'Connell attended the premiere too.
The actress flew into Los Angeles from New York very early on Thursday morning (April 11, 2013) and is scheduled to attend the Coachella music festival in Indio, California, this weekend. However, according to TMZ.com, the actress is telling friends she "doesn't care about all the snipers who are scoffing" at her rehabilitation and insists she will stay clean at the festival, which she, err, enjoyed last year. A judge in her criminal case has warned her to stay away from people who do drugs or alcohol, which could be problematic at Coachella, headlined this year by The Stone Roses, Blur, Phoenix and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Scary Movie 5 won't have it all its own way at the box-office this weekend.
Pre-release tracking figures suggest this weekend's race for the box-office top-spot, contested by a biopic of baseball legend Jackie Robinson and the big-budget Scary Movie 5 starring Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan, could be closer than first assumed. In fact, surveys suggest both movies are on track to pull in somewhere in the region of $17.5 million each - though which will prevail?
Scary Movie is the latest instalment in the long-running franchise, that dates back to 2000. Though critical reception is almost always relatively poor, the films do generally good business and the heavyweight cast this time around - which also features Ashley Tisdale - will help it to solid takings. The previous movie, Scary Movie 4, opened to $40 million in April 2006, though The Weinstein Company's Dimension films isn't expecting those numbers this time.
Meanwhile, baseball picture '42', starring Harrison Ford as the Dodgers general manager Branch Rickey, was made for around $40 million and has the benefit of word of mouth marketing. Warner Bros showed the movie to various baseball teams, including the Los Angeles Dodgers during spring training and there's already quite a buzz. The reviews are pretty good too, with Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times saying, "Robinson's story had so much drama in real life, and his sacrifice and pain made such a lasting influence, that "42" ends up being effective in its gee-whiz way almost in spite of itself." It opens in 3,002 locations throughout North America this weekend and the studio is anticipating takings of around $15 million, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Whether that's enough to steal away the No.1 spot from Scary Movie 5 remains to be seen.

Anger Management appearance finds Lindsay Lohan back in bed with Charlie Sheen
They might seem like an unlikely couple but the Lohan and Sheen scene in Scary Movie 5, which saw the two Hollywood stars in bed together has been reprised. Lindsay and Charlie clearly thought that filming one bed scene together just wasn’t enough for them and decided to do it again; this time for Charlie’s popular FX comedy Anger Management.
Lindsay is currently awaiting news on where she is supposed to serve her 3 month ‘rehab lockdown’ sentence, for lying to cops about a car crash. In the meantime, whilst her lawyer wrangles with court officials over whether or not the concept of a locked rehab facility is something that actually exists, in real life, Lohan had some free time on her hands and made an appearance in the comedy series. After Sheen suffered a series of very public dramas and embarrassments, it was Anger Management that managed to get his public image back on track. Perhaps he’s hoping an appearance on the show will do the same for young Lindsay?
According to E News, Lindsay Lohan plays herself, but in the show, she’s a patient of Sheen’s therapist, who falls in love with him. The storyline apparently draws on her troubles with the police and pokes fun at her fondness for partying. The episode is scheduled to air in April.
Charlie Sheen's poo slinging threats might land the star in more trouble than he expected.
The latest development on the Charlie Sheen versus Fancy Private School – now the parents of children attending his daughter’s former school want the Two and a Half Men star prosecuted.
Does that surprise anyone though? After Sheen put forward a call to arms for all of his fans, urging them to smear the school building with poop, something like this was bound to happen. Granted, Charlie’s tiger blood might have been boiling with righteous anger, after his 9-year-old daughter reportedly got bullied at the institution and the management turned a blind eye on her. But perhaps the actor didn’t choose the best way to seek justice. Last Thursday, a parent meeting was held at Viewpoint School in California to address Sheen’s rants and his devious dog poop plot. As far as the parents are concerned, Sheen’s numerous antics over the years – you know, things like threatening to shoot someone and holding a knife to his ex-wife’s throat – make him untrustworthy and a straight up danger to society. They would therefore want to have the actor prosecuted on charges of inciting violence and criminal threats.
He might be rightfully angry, but Charlie Sheen's threats could still get him into trouble with the law.
The Anger Management star has recently lend Lohan $100k towards her tax troubles
Well how about this for gratitude? Lindsay Lohan is reportedly angry at Charlie Sheen – that’s right, the Charlie Sheen who recently gave her $100k to help her pay off her back taxes, who supported her for Scary Movie 5 and who has been publicly defending the wayward star. We’ll bet he wish he hadn’t bothered.
Apparently Lohan is angry at Sheen’s suggestion that he could act as a mentor figure to the actress, who is currently in legal, financial, career and social turmoil. That’s a lot of turmoil. Sheen of course had his own well-documented break down a couple of years back, but has made a pretty excellent fist of getting his life back on track, and is currently starring in the sitcom Anger Management. You’d think he’d be exactly the man to give Lohan an instruction manual on how to get things going again after quite a big screw up (or several.) However, according to TMZ the star isn’t happy with Sheen’s suggestion, with insiders saying that she doesn’t believe the adage ‘it takes one to know one’ would be the way to go – in fact she just wishes he’d stop talking about her in public at all. Time to call that $100k back in we reckon, Charlie.

More problems follow Lindsay Lohan as she rejects a plea deal and is given advice to change her lawyer.
They've tried to make her go to rehab but she said no, no, no. Lindsay Lohan was offered rehab over jail recently in court, but Lohan turned the offer down, as the Sun Times reports. It seems she's taken Amy Winehouse's lyrics to heart. We truly hope she changes her mind though because continuing in Winehouse's footsteps can only lead to a tragic end, and no one wants to see Lohan join the 27 club.
Her litigious history is getting messier and messier, not least because of the change of lawyer. Here's a very quick breakdown: a few years ago she was arrested and convicted of having stolen some jewellery. She went to prison briefly but was released quickly due to overcrowding. She has been on probation ever since. However, after a car crash last summer which the prosecution are claiming she lied to the police about, she's had her probation called into question and revoked. She's now set to be in court on March 18th for a trial. However, back in January she was also forced to change her lawyer and now has Mark Heller, a New York attorney, representing her... in California, despite not knowing or understanding the different court procedures. See, messy!
To make matters worse the judge in the courtroom last week told Lindsay and Heller that they would need another legal representative to help Heller because, as TMZ say he's "incompetent to practice law in California and said Lindsay either has to get another lawyer who knows what he's doing or she has to come into court and waive her right to a competent California lawyer."
Lindsay Lohan reportedly returned a borrowed dress, slashed in half, claiming she damaged it in a nightclub and asked a bouncer to cut it.
What EXACTLY happened to that glittering ball-gown that Lindsay Lohan borrowed to wear to an amFAR event earlier this month? According to US Weekly, it was cut in half by the time she returned it and sources say that she claims it had to be cut in half after it ripped during her evening out and says that she asked a bouncer to help her to cut the dress. In the pictures, it has been cut so that the formerly full-length dress is now longer at the back than it is at the front.
The source told Us Weekly “She said that the dress had ripped [at a club after the fundraiser] - she couldn't possibly wear it like that - so her stylist friend went to the club bouncer and requested some scissors to repair the torn part of the dress” and added “But what bouncer has scissors?” It certainly seems strange that Lohan would think that the best alternative to returning a damaged, borrowed dress would be a halved, borrowed dress. Reportedly, her pal Charlie Sheen helped her source the posh frock, hooking her up with celebrity stylist Philip Bloch. That’s the same Charlie Sheen who apparently loaned her a heap of money to help pay off her taxes. We bet he’s decided not to offer to help LiLo anymore, after all the hoo-ha it’s brought with it.
Lohan’s money worries stretch beyond not having a posh frock to wear. The Liz & Dick actress has been forced to move back in with her mom Dina after struggling to pay the rent on her previous home.
So we know who’s going to be on the cover; it’s Kate Upton. Everybody knows that. So how do you drum up interest after the fact? Send every swimwear model onto The Late Show With David Letterman, that’s how.
All the girls – looking slightly odd fully dressed – participated in the Late Show Top Ten list, with Monday's topic being the top 10 questions on the application to become a SI swimsuit model. Emily Didonato started things off with: "How naked do you see yourself in five years?" Nina Agdal asked "Have you ever dated Charlie Sheen? (we can’t work out what the right answer for that question is)."Have you ever used any pose-enhancing drugs?" posed Julie Henderson. "Are you willing to visit the elderly at his late-night talk show?" offered Genevieve Morton and "How would Brent Musberger describe you?" was Miss Alabama Katherine Webb’s. No. 1 was cover girl Upton, with: "Where's the strangest place you've found sand?"
We’re pretty sure the application for swimsuit model on Sports Illustrated sounds like the worst thing ever - if you’re at all into feminism, equal rights or any of that left-wing cushiony nonsense that is. But if you like the idea selecting people based solely on their looks and their answers to sleazy questions, they my-oh-my, it’ll be right up your street. We jest, of course (sort of). The new issue of Sports Illustrated is released on Tuesday 11 February (TODAY!).
Charlie Sheen has released a video of himself speaking an open message to the ex-police officer who is thought to be responsible for the shooting of three police officers, TMZ reports.
Ex-cop Christopher Dorner is now a fugitive. Having been fired from his job as a police officer in 2008, he has since accused LAPD, where he used to work, of racism. In an online 'manifesto', in which he threatens the safety of LAPD personnel and their families, he spoke of Randy Quan, who was a part of the 'review process' which led to Dorner's dismissal. Last Sunday (3rd February), Quan's daughter and her fiancee were found dead.
The LA Times quotes Dorner's manifesto, a passage that relates directly to Quan: "Your lack of ethics and conspiring to wrong a just individual are over. Suppressing the truth will leave to deadly consequences for you and your family. There will be an element of surprise where you work, live, eat, and sleep," he wrote."I never had the opportunity to have a family of my own, I'm terminating yours."
While Denise Richards mourns her pet bulldog Hank - who died aged 13 on Sunday (Sunday 20, 2013) - fellow Jennifer Lopez is just getting to know her new addition to the family, a boxer dog named Frank. Richards - the ex-wife of Charlie Sheen - took to Twitter this week to express her sadness over the passing of lovable Hank.
"Last night we lost our beloved Hank," the actress wrote. "I will miss him dearly, 13 yrs old... been there for me thru it all Best dog ever & part of our family." Fortunately for the Hollywood actress, she recently adopted a rescue puppy, possibly acknowledging the fact that old Hank didn't have much left in the tank. Animal lover Richards also has many other pet cats to keep her company, and her three children of course!
Meanwhile, Jennifer Lopez and Casper Smart are expanding their family with the arrival of a little brown boxer dog named Bear. Smart, 25, who works as a backing dancer for his high profile partner, tweeted the news last week, saying, "Introducing the new addition to the family..." before uploading a snap of the pooch. Lopez, a mother of 4-year-old twins Max and Emme with ex-husband Marc Anthony, re-tweeted the message, adding, "So happy! Lilbabybear. Could get confusing!" Bear is known as the couple's pet name for each other.

Charlie Sheen had one of the most famous melt downs of recent celebrity news, equalled only by the Britney Spears' shaving-her-head incident. His spiral down into mental health and drugs problems spawned some popular catch phrases including 'bi-winning' and 'I got tiger blood', but two years on and his life seems to resemble something that's back on track. He popped in to see David Letterman on the Late Show for a chat and to promote his latest television series 'Anger Management'.
Of course, Letterman asked him the kind of questions that everyone wants to answer to. Namely, did crack cocaine have a part to play in his break down? Sheen replied: "Here's the confusing part... I wish it was crack cocaine. It wish it was an ocean of vodka, a bathtub full of pills... It was just my brain was kind of separated into itself. I just had to take a stand for what I know was right."
He also admitted to wanting to head back to Two and a Half Men, despite his character getting killed off. "I would like to go back. I would like to appear on their final episode." He said, adding: "I am dead, but so is the show!" Finally, in the most positive news of the evening, Sheen has also said that his daughter is expecting a baby, which will make him a grandpa for the first time! The prospect of it is 'fabulous' he said, admitting however that the title of 'Grandpa' is not one he's ready for yet.
Charlie Sheen is to be a grandfather after announcing that his 28-year-old daughter Cassandra Estevez is pregnant. The 47-year-old Anger Management star shared the happy news with David Letterman on his Late Show after the host pushed him about "fessing up to a big development" in his life.
"You are going to be, in the next several months...fill in the blanks," teased Letterman. "You are going to be a..." Smiling back, Sheen replied, "Grandfather," to the delight of the audience, adding, "it's fabulous," though suggesting that 'Grandpa' was "not a title I'm ready to adopt." When Letterman asked whether Sheen thought he would make a "good grandfather," the former Two and a Half Men actor quipped, "Yeah, because you can leave the kid!" We don't know about you, but Charlie Sheen seems like a pretty decent guy to have as your grandfather, at least the visits to his house would be mildly entertaining? Cassandra is Sheen's daughter with his high-school girlfriend Paula Speert and in 2010, he walked her down the aisle when she married Casey Huffman in Santa Barbara.
Later in his chat with Letterman, Sheen gave his thoughts on Two and a Half Men - now led by Ashton Kutcher - claiming he'd like to appear in the final episode of the show. We reckon the odds of that happening are slim to none.

Like his former co-star before him, Angus T Jones' rant against his employers on Two and a Half Men looked to have cost him his job, unlike Charlie Sheen though, Jones may have dodged a bullet and looks likely to reclaim his role as Jake on the popular series.
In an online rant, Jones called the popular sitcom "filth" and "very inappropriate," and unfitting of his newfound religious calling. For a while it looked as though it would be him leaving the show before the producers even had the chance to fire him, however he looks to have held on to his post for a little bit longer, having apologised for his rather unwise words shortly after the derogatory video went viral.
With filming for season 11 getting under way next week, CBS Entertainment President Nina Tassler issued a statement yesterday (Jan 12) seemingly signalling her forgiveness towards Jones, saying: "We move on."
Just when Charlie Sheen was starting to redeem himself and repair his damaged reputation, he decided to inexplicably launch into an insulting tirade against the audience gathered to see him at the opening of his new bar in Los Angeles. He’d barely opened his mouth before he unleashed a homophobic slur, calling the gathered throng a bunch of “fa***t a**holes.” Way to go to thank people for supporting your new venture, there Charlie.
As Sheen took to the stage, he appeared to be channelling the spirit of Bill Hicks, switching his voice to a low growl. The difference, of course, is that Hicks was actually funny. Unlike Sheen, who, once he had the microphone, greeted the crowd by saying “How we doing?” and then when the crowd did not respond enthusiastically enough for his liking, he growled “whining bunch of fa***t a**holes, how we doing?” He then went on to welcome them all to Sheenz, “with a z” and then telling them all that they suck. The crowd at Sheenz – part of the ultra-hip El Ganzo hotel, included the mayor of Los Angeles, Antonio Villaraigosa.
Sheen’s defence, according to TMZ, was “I meant no ill will and intended to hurt no one and I apologize if I offended anyone.” Somewhat less believably, he also told them “I meant to say maggot but I have a lisp.”
According to sources the script called for her to kiss Sheen three times in the scene in the bedroom, but she couldn't bring herself to even kiss him once! This is all due to his 'spotty history' and wild partying days, apparently, and for some reason she fears where he's been. They both had to sign releases that neither of them had cold sores, such were Lohan's fears. She'd told the producers ahead of production taking place about her trepidations, but it was too late to change the script - they even tried to use body doubles, but apparently they didn't really work and as much of the kissing as possible has since been written out.
Many people feel that Lindsay's being a bit of a hypocrite, but there's no need to jump to Sheen's defence because apparently he didn't care- and proved it by giving her a wopping $100k. In other Lohan news, she's still in a whole bunch of debt, and she's set to return to court after the revocation of her probation having lied to police about crashing her Porsche - she could face over 200 days in jail. She's never filled a term yet so we're not holding out much hope of that.
Is there not anybody out there looking out for Lindsay Lohan’s public image?
Or did her parents simply not teach her to say please and thank you when she was a child? Apparently, Lohan hasn’t actually bothered to say thanks to her Scary Movie 5 pal Charlie Sheen after he valiantly stepped in and tried to help get the IRS off her back. And just how did Charlie do this? He reportedly gave her a cheque for $100,000 to help pay off some of the money she owes. And has she said thank you? Not according to Sheen.
Perez Hilton have quoted Sheen on the matter and we reckon he’s being pretty polite about the whole thing. “[She’s] a very good and decent young lady that is just going through a lot,” said the Anger Management star. “I'm still waiting for a text to say 'thank you.' Anything, you know?” Either Sheen is joking, or Lindsay’s lost her manners, as well as her marbles, it would seem.
Sadly, overdosing on prescription drugs is far from a new idea around Hollywood. The latest addition to the lineup is Strictly Sexual actress Brook Mueller, probably most known for her short-lived marriage to Charlie Sheen.
On Friday, Mueller was rushed to a hospital near her home in Tarzana, Los Angeles. She was found unconscious and initial reports mention high levels of Adderall – ADHD medication – in her blood, as well as low levels of alcohol. Her publicist denied these claims at the time, attributing the hospital stay to exhaustion and dehydration. However, yesterday Mueller voluntarily checked herself into rehab, admitting to a serious addiction to the prescription medication. According to TMZ, this will be the actress’s 19th visit to a rehab facility.
This may also have some more serious consequences, as Mueller is still on probation for a previous possession offence. Under the terms of her probation, she is not allowed to drink alcohol. According to her publicist, quoted by The Daily Mail, the levels of alcohol found in her blood at the time were not high enough to constitute a violation. However, with Mueller’s previous drug history, this incident is not to be taken lightly.

The IRS has seized Lindsay Lohan's bank accounts in an attempt to recover the $233,904 in unpaid taxes from 2009 and 2011, plus an unspecified amount from last year, according to TMZ.com.
The seizure has prompted Lindsay's father Michael Lohan to speak publically of his concern for the actress, "Where is all her money going?," he said to the New York Daily News. Good question sir! Lohan could really do without a battle with the IRS, given she's due in court on December 12 concerning her three misdemeanour charges related to her June car crash. It's likely that Lindsay will be forced to cough up bail money in the Los Angeles County, if Superior Court Judge Jane Godfrey revokes her shoplifting probation. Father Michael confirmed that his daughter made over $100,000 to promote the new Mr Pink energy drink and also helped mother Dina stave off foreclosure on her Long Island home with $40,000 in cash. "I care about one thing: Lindsay's life," said Michael, "I know she's drinking again, and that's bad enough. What happens if she goes to jail? They don't detox you in jail. I want her in rehab. I wanted her in rehab six months ago." Last week, it was reported how Charlie Sheen signed a cheque for $100,000 to help the actress - his Scary Movie 5 co-star - with her tax problems.
Lohan was arrested on Thursday after allegedly punching a woman at a Manhattan nightclub. Hours later she was charged with lying to police, relating to her June car crash. If the judge determines that this constitutes a violation of her probation, Lohan faces up to 245 days in jail (which means she could be behind bars for Christmas).
Continue reading: IRS Seize Lindsay Lohan's Bank Accounts (Despite Charlie Sheen's Help)
Lindsay Lohan's life has gone from bad to worse, and now that the IRL has taken control of ALL her money, she's pretty much hit rock bottom. The young starlet owes in excess of $230,000 for unpaid taxes from 2009-10, and naturally Uncle Sam wants it back, according to TMZ who first broke the news.
Charlie Sheen in his recent philanthropic endeavours gave her $100,000, because apparently these days she's a charity case, but according to further reports this huge sum of money "barely scratched the surface" due to more money that she owes for 2011.
This is hardly the least of her worries and simply tops off a long list of things to be concerned about. Most notably her court date of December 12th which addresses three incidents dating back to June this year, which may cost her even more money (that she doesn't have) for bail if her probation is revoked. She has been involved with many lucrative projects recently including Liz&Dick, The Canyons and promotions for 'Mr Pink Energy Drink', according to NY Daily News, but despite all of this she still doesn't have enough money to pay the taxman? Very confusing, and her father agrees.
Who to hire first? A therapist or an accountant? That’s presumably what Lindsay Lohan’s trying to figure out right now as her bank accounts have reportedly been seized by the IRS. Add to this the news that she is downing two litres of vodka a day and things aren’t looking peachy for Lindsay Lohan right now. Actually, we can’t remember a time when things were looking peachy for Lindsay Lohan and frankly, if she’s downing two litres of vodka a day, we doubt that she can remember much at all.
According to The Hollywood Gossip, the IRS got tired of waiting for Lindsay to sort out her unpaid taxes so decided to take matters into their own hands and have seized pretty much every cent that the actress has to her name, it would seem. It’s worth remembering that her Scary Movie 5 co-star Charlie Sheen recently took pity on the Liz & Dick star and chucked $100,000 in her general direction, to help pay off the debt. Just how much does Lindsay owe, then, if the IRS haven’t considered that enough to convince them that she’s getting a handle on her financial affairs? She reportedly earned $2 million this year.
As for the reports that she’s drinking two litres of vodka a day, we’re inclined to think that that story is one hell of an exaggeration, or we’d wager that Lohan would no longer be with us. There’s no denying that Lohan’s still got problems, though. Here’s hoping the 26 year-old gets the help she needs to straighten herself out, once and for all.
After his online tirade against the show, Angus T Jones looks 'likely' to be given the boot after the current series of Two and a Half Men comes to an end, a number of online sources have said.
To be honest, anyone who publicly disowns their employer, including referring to it as 'filth' and urging people not watch the hit comedy, are more than likely to be given the heave-ho by their employers no matter who they are, and Jones looks likely to be no exception to the rule. VH1 and Zap2It have both reported that Jones could well be on the way out, with other websites even claiming that Miley Cyrus could be replacing the young Christian actor.
Whilst some people are commenting on solely on Jones' outburst against the show, what many people are discussing instead is whether this latest dispute may spell the end of the show. Should Jones be given the boot, it would mark the second star to leave the show, which would frankly make the show look all the more like a sinking ship. With Charlie Sheen gone and Jones on the way, how much of the already dwindling audience are likely to stick around to see Jon Cryer and Sheen's replacement, Ashton Kutcher. Only time well tell whether enough is enough, but we think maybe it is.
Angus T. Jones has somehow talked himself out of a 350k per episode television job. As we reported earlier this week, the Two and a Half Men star taped a video for the Forerunner Christian Church, calling America's most popular sitcom "filth" and urging viewers to stop tuning in. He made a hastily prepared statement half-apologizing for the remarks, though there appeared to be a clear lack of contrition.
We speculated on the whether or not the show could continue with Angus T. Jones still on-board, and it seems as though he and production bosses have made a decision. A source close to the show has confirmed to E! News that Jones plans to complete filming the current season and will most likely not return should CBS order another season (something almost nailed on given the recent acquisition of Ashton Kutcher). It looks as though creator Chuck Lorre is planning to phase out Angus from the plotline and it actually ties in well with the star's current status on the show (he enlisted in the army at the end of season nine). The insider said, "He won't be in every episode.How much they use him will be up to [creator] Chuck Lorre. The intention wasn't ever for him to be in every ep this year anyway. Now it might be less." Jones, Kutcher and Emmy winner Jon Cryer all have contracts through the end of this season though Warner probably intended to sign all three stars up again once CBS picked up the show for season eleven. Should it be renewed, it's "unlikely" Jones were return as a series regular. "You might see him for a few guest spots," said the source.
It would be a pretty sad end for Angus T. Jones, given that he's been a mainstay on the show since the Charlie Sheen days. His old pal reacted to the controversy this week, calling his former employer "cursed". No surprises there then.
Continue reading: Angus T. Jones To Leave 'Two And A Half Men': Is The Show Doomed?
We should be used to Two and a Half Men stars going a little crazy on the internet. This time it's Angus T. Jones, who plays Jake on the popular but hugely lucrative sitcom, which saw its star Charlie Sheen go viral recently.
"Jake from Two and a Half Men means nothing. He is a non-existent character. Two and a Half Men[sigh]...if you watch Two and a Half Men please stop watching. I'm on Two and a Half Men and I don't want to be on it," he said on a video posted to The Forerunner Chronicles YouTube channel. "Please stop watching it, please stop filling your head with filth." He went on by imploring people to "research the effects of television on your brain" saying: "People say it's just entertainment. The fact that it is just entertainment...It's bad news. It's bad news. I don't know if it means any more coming from me, but you might not have heard it otherwise. So, watch out."
Are you thinking what we're thinking? Jones grabs $300,000 per episode of Three and a Half Men, making him the highest paid teen actor in the U.S, so, this outburst has come as quite a shock. In fairness to him, he joined the show at a very young age, and probably hadn't formed his own ideas of the world, and before he knew it, he was part of something huge. Still, it seems strange for someone to denounce the medium that has made them financially secure for life. Perhaps we'll buy it when he donates all that evil money to religious charities.
Charlie Sheen, who suffered a remarkable fall from grace last year before somehow turning it in his favor, has paid off Lindsay Lohan's 100k tax bill in one go. According to TMZ.com, the Liz & Dick star had mentioned her problems with the IRS on the shoot of Scary Movie 5 in September, which is when Sheen opened his check book, scribbled down a '1' followed by five noughts and made her problems disappear.
Despite her tax problems, Lohan has had a pretty decent year, getting paid $1 million for her Playboy shoot, before pulling in another $1 million from Liz & Dick, Scary Move 5 and The Canyons. However, Sheen continues to earn a fortune from Anger Management and is truly one of the highest paid actors in television. On top of that, he finalized a multimillion-dollar settlement with Warner Bros following his firing from Two and a Half Man. According to the Los Angeles Times, he walked away with around $25 million in profit sharing and will get another $100 million in syndication profits over the next 7 to 10 years. He was previously paid around $1.44 million per episode of the show, before his behavior left bosses with no choice other than to fire him. Without taking into account the settlement (or FX's massive order for Anger Management) Sheen's net-worth is said to be around $85 million.

We already knew Charlie Sheen has a pretty hefty bank balance, though it appears he also has a charitable side to go with it. It has emerged that the former Two and a Half Men star paid off Lindsay Lohan's massive tax bill: just like that.
According to sources who spoke with TMZ.com, Lindsay and Charlie became good friends on the set of Scary Movie 5 in September and began spending more and more time with each other. During this period, Lohan had mentioned her on-going tax problems, which were said to be mounting by the day. The IRS was going after the actress in a big way, though Sheen wasn't having any of it. Despite Lindsay's initial reluctance to accept, he wrote out a check for $100,000 which immediately wiped the bill. She originally owed around $244,904, though thanks to Sheen's bumper one off payment, that number was almost cut in half with no questions asked.
After a pretty successful year (Scary Movie 5, Liz and Dick, The Canyons, Playboy), Lohan is set to earn over $2 million, though let's just hope she has a decent accountant by now. Then again, there's always Charlie Sheen.

Charlie Sheen threatened to gun down a former associate of his with a Super 90 semi-automatic shotgun, according to a police report filed with the LAPD. Law enforcement sources tell TMZ.com that the man in question is "deathly afraid" that Charlie will murder him based on a text message that Charlie sent to a mutual friend.
The unnamed man fell out with Sheen recently and later learned that the Anger Management star vented about him in a text message to a woman. "I'll blow his head off with my Super 90," the message allegedly read. Police are currently investigating and want to speak with Charlie about the threats. A source close to the actor refused to go into detail but said, "The accuser is a dishonorably discharged military person with multiple probation violations who is trying to shake him down for money." Doesn't exactly deny the whole shotgun thing then?
Sheen will next be seen in Roman Coppola's A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III, about a graphic designer's slide into despair when his girlfriend breaks up with him. The movie boasts a stellar cast, which also includes Jason Schwartzman and Bill Murray.

Ashton Kutcher has been named TV’s highest paid actor. The Two and a Half Men star may have disgraced himself in the celebrity gossip world, by allegedly cheating on his partner Demi Moore, but in the world of television, he’s still hot property and commands a staggering fee for his appearances in the show.
According to Forbes’ annual survey of the highest paid television actors, Kutcher earned $24 million between May 2011 and May 2012. His predecessor on Two and a Half Men, Charlie Sheen (who left the show in a pretty dramatic fashion after suffering what appeared to be some kind of mental breakdown) did not even make the Top 10. That said, when Sheen was at the top of his game, he out-classed Kutcher significantly, with earnings of $40 million. Sheen wasn’t the only big name star to mysteriously disappear from the Top 10 though. Steve Carell, who proved to be a massive hit on the small screen with the US adaptation of Ricky Gervais’ The Office, also dropped off the list.
Snapping at Kutcher’s heels at the top of the list was Hugh Laurie, who ranked second with $18 million, largely for his role in House. Ray Romano earned an equal amount, and still appears to be raking it in with re-runs of his classic Everybody Loves Raymond comedy. Alec Baldwin’s in next with $15 million, still charming TV audiences with his role in 30 Rock.
Scary Movie 3 sticks with the program: mind-bogglingly dumb characters hustle their way through spoofs of the industry's most popular recent films. It's no mistake that the roasted movies -- in this case: Signs, The Ring, and 8 Mile -- all pull in huge money and attract a young audience.

The phrase, now famous via Douglas's Oscar-winning performance, was initially uttered by Ivan Boesky, the 1980s business biggie who thrived on doing whatever it took to become rich, and paid the price as a result. Director/co-writer Stone, with Douglas at the epicenter, erects an overdone behemoth of a movie that, like Boesky himself, is an ageless -- and, at times, clichéd -- cautionary tale.

In this Bounce, Wilson plays vagabond Jack Ryan, a man who's bad luck and bad choices have landed him on the North Shore of Oahu where he takes a job in construction working for shady hotel developer Ray Ritchie (Gary Sinise) and his assistant Bob Jr. (Charlie Sheen). It's not long before Jack gets fired and finds new employment as a handyman at a complex of vacation bungalows owned by Judge Walter Crewes (Morgan Freeman). While working for Crewes, Jack becomes enamored with Nancy Hayes (Sara Foster, the poor man's Bridget Fonda), Ritchie's sexpot girlfriend and house-sitter while he escorts his wife (Bebe Neuwirth) on shopping trips in Honolulu. Nancy has a plan to milk Ritchie out of $200,000, and she needs Jack's help to pull it off.

Lisa Picard is a struggling New York actress who has had her 15 minutes and just doesn't realize it yet. She starred in a rather carnal breakfast-in-bed commercial for Wheat Chex that made her notorious and got her fired from her steady job playing "Sally Starfish" in a production that tours elementary schools.
"If the director's cut could be seen, this would be a non-issue," she grouses in "Lisa Picard Is Famous" -- an inept documentary by an under-prepared filmmaker who has decided this starlet is on the verge of being discovered and he's determined to capture the moment when it happens.
In actuality, "Lisa Picard Is Famous" is a mock documentary by actor-director Griffin Dunne ("Practical Magic," "Addicted to Love") -- and a whimsically sardonic concept that just doesn't quite congeal because the movie is more uncomfortable than it is funny.
