When Charlie Sheen reunited with his Scary Movie 5 co-star Lindsay Lohan for his FX sitcom Anger Management, it wasn’t exactly drama-free — but it also wasn’t quite as bad as the tabloids would have you believe.
Sheen says the idea for her to guest-star on his sitcom — in which he plays a therapist — was generated through the show after the two shot their cameos in Scary Movie 5.
“It came up that she could be on the show playing herself, that she might need some help in my group,” he says.
Asked if it was true that she was late to set, Sheen quipped: “Not on day one.”
He added: “Day one, she was fabulous. She was on time; she knew her lines, hit every mark, made us look off our game. … Then we had to deal with day two. It was as though she had us held hostage because she gave us half a show.”
Sheen explains that Lohan said she had an earache and showed up two hours late.
“She was really not feeling well,” he says. “We worked around it. She was late, what can I say? But she got to the shoot prepared with an excuse.”
Leno also asks about rumors that some props or jewelry went missing from the set. (Lohan, of course, pleaded no contest to stealing a necklace in 2011.)
“She borrowed some stuff and was told she had to pay for it and they would take it out of her check, and she said fine. That’s all it was,” he explains.
