Charlie Sheen jokes that Lindsay Lohan held his show ‘hostage’

Charlie Sheen had some kind words to say about working with Lindsay Lohan when he appeared Wednesday on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.”

He had some other words for the troubled actress, too, though he refrained from throwing her totally under the bus.


Discussing Lohan’s guest turn on his FX series, “Anger Management,” Sheen said Lohan showed up on time the first day, knew her lines and was “fabulous.”

Then, he told Leno, “we had to deal with Day Two.”


Said Sheen, “It was as though she had us held hostage.” Lohan wasn’t feeling well, suffering from an ear infection, and was late. He said the show worked around her, and she was fine and professional when she finally arrived.

As for the rumors that Lohan stole props or clothes from the set, Sheen said she “borrowed” things, and then had the cost of the items deducted from her check.
