Charlie Sheen Says Sean Penn, Johnny Depp Are Best Partiers
Charlie Sheen is well-known for being quite the party boy in Hollywood, but you may be surprised to hear who he thinks are the craziest partiers.
"Johnny Depp," he says. "Johnny is hardcore, man. Sean [Penn] is hardcore. Sean is hard to keep up with when he's going. And he's gnarly. He's the best actor alive."
In a new interview with The Daily Beast, Sheen discusses everything from Two and a Half Men to him almost getting the lap dance of his life from Lady Gaga. Check out some highlights below:
Scoop: Is Jane Lynch guest-starring on Anger Management?
On what he thinks about Two and a Half Men now: "I feel bad for Jon [Cryer]. They lost their anchor and really went adrift. I think they're all doing the best they can with what they got left, but I don't think it should continue past this year. I really don't."
On how his meltdown showed everyone the real him: "I think that whole meltdown a couple of years ago, as bizarre as it was and whatever happened as a result, it gave people a chance to see that I didn't have to play the part of the guy being interviewed or whatever mask I had to put on. I just went, 'F--- it. This is who I am.' But now, people are like, 'Well, this is the guy we came to know way back when.'"
On his former flame Kelly Preston, who went on to marry John Travolta: "Kelly was a sweetheart, man. Super gorgeous and very cool. I don't know anything about John's sexuality and all that because I wasn't there. There have been rumors and this and that, and she had a very strong stand against—not the [gay] community, but that she would never want to be 'at risk'' like that. But then she went out with somebody who was radically rumored to be bi. It's a trip. Good guy, though. Met [Travolta] a few times and like him a lot."
Charlie Sheen apologizes for using homophobic slur at bar opening
On Lady Gaga, who makes her acting debut in Machete Kills, which Sheen plays the President in: "We didn't share any scenes, but I actually spoke to her on the phone. She wanted me to do a music video with her that was going to be the first X-rated video. It's her going to this strip club, with Britney Spears or somebody, and they're dancers and I'm the customer. And she wanted to do a full striptease as a lap dance for me, and she told me, 'If there's one person that should receive this X-rated lap dance, it's you.' I was so flattered, but we never spoke again."
On paying Lindsay Lohan's tax bill after co-starring with her in Scary Movie 5: "They offered me a ton of dough for one day, half a mil. But then they said they were going to cut it in half when they were hiring Lindsay. I asked her how much she was being paid, and she said $100,000, so I just gave her $100,000 of their money. Paying it forward... I was hoping that she would pick my brain a little bit on the set. That's the one thing that was really missing from the experience."
