Why does Charlie Sheen give Lindsay Lohan so many chances?
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, he says it’s because he’s worried about her and thinks she’s an “absolute genius.”
“I think she seems a lot more focused now than she was five, six months ago,” says Charlie, who gave her a guest starring role on his FX series Anger Management. “There is a reason that I root for [her] because we fell in love with this little girl that was just an absolute genius and had this great light about her and that’s still there. You can’t extinguish that. I root for her because when you’re that talented it just doesn’t go away. Sometimes your appetites get in the way.”
There are conflicting reports on Lindsay’s demeanor on set. TMZ reports Lindsay was 45 minutes early, knew her lines and nailed a bedroom scene with Charlie. However E News is reporting she decided to leave with a few bracelets from the set.
Oh Lindsay! Remember that jewelry heist from 2011 that started your legal troubles?
When asked if Charlie identifies with Lindsay and her substance abuse issues and run-ins with the law, he replied, “Hell yeah. But I, not to insult her because I’m who I am and she is who she is, I got things a little bit quicker or had better opportunities, better timing. They let me off the hook a lot sooner then they seem to want to do with her.”
