Charlie Sheen Hunts For the Loch Ness Monster

Charlie Sheen indulged his inner explorer when he headed to Scotland last week to hunt for the mythical Loch Ness Monster.

The former Two and a Half Men star traveled to Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands last week with a group of friends on a mission to find the beast, nicknamed Nessie.

The actor stayed at Aldourie Castle on the shores of the loch during his trip, but failed to catch a glimpse of the fabled creature during his stay, however, he did have his picture taken with a wooden sculpture of Nessie.

Sheen took a private jet home to the U.S. on Saturday and he climbed on board the plane to the sounds of a former Scots Guard playing traditional Scottish tunes on the bagpipes.

Two and a Half Men’s Holland Taylor: ‘I’ve Suffered Depression’: A Parade Magazine Exclusive

Two and a Half Men’s Holland Taylor has gone back to her theater roots with her one-woman play Ann, which has earned her a Tony nomination. In a candid interview with, Taylor opened up about her struggle with depression, why the late Ann Richards would have thought Angelina Jolie was “the bomb,” how former costar Charlie Sheen’s Hollywood upbringing shaped his life, and more.

Here are the highlights:

You often play strong, buoyant, confident women, like Judge Kittelson on The Practice or Gov. Ann Richards in your play. You seem very self-confident, never self-doubting.
“Well, I’ve suffered depression. From my early 40s into my mid-50s.”

How bad was it?
“Bad enough for me to entertain the idea of going into a hospital. I actually wasn’t a danger to myself, but I really sometimes wondered how I could get out of the house to go get food. I was on antidepressants for over 15 years, with very intermittent counseling. It was a very dead period of my life. Antidepressants take away the lows but they also reduce the highs. And for me, over a long period of time, they didn’t really work. So I quit taking them, and my life has been afire since then.”

Ann Richards was transparent about the things she wanted to share, like Angelina Jolie was in opening up about her double mastectomy.
“I think what Angelina Jolie is doing is right up Ann Richards’ street. I was dazzled by it, and I thought it was a wonderful sharing, and just fantastically wonderful for thousands of people who are going through that. I think the world of Angelina Jolie, and infinitely more now, because that was really a dazzling, generous effort on her part. Ann Richards would just think that was the bomb.”

What do you think of Charlie Sheen’s replacement on Two and a Half Men, Ashton Kutcher?
“He’s very charming. Very affable and smart. But I’ve hardly been exposed to him at all.”

And what about Charlie Sheen?
“Anybody who’s spent time with Charlie likes him. He’s as smart a person as you’ll ever find.”

He sometimes hasn’t behaved like he’s smart.
“He grew up with a movie star father [Martin Sheen] who was gallivanting around the world. [Today] Martin is a big AA person and very public about it. But back in the day, Martin was a young, crazy, brilliant talent—always gone, always traveling, sometimes bringing his kids along. It was just a madhouse way [for Charlie] to grow up. And then Charlie himself was a teenage movie star with hundreds of thousands of dollars in his pocket at any given moment. It sounds great to a lot of people, but it’s not that easy to mature and to have a regular life.”

Charlie Sheen Felt ‘Held Hostage’ By Lindsay Lohan During Sitcom Filming

Charlie Sheen has confirmed rumors that suggest troubled actress Lindsay Lohan frequently arrived late to work while filming a guest spot on his TV show Anger Management.

The Mean Girls star, who recently teamed up with the 47-year old in Scary Movie 5, plays herself in an upcoming episode of Sheen’s popular sitcom, and the actor admitted he felt like a “hostage” on his own set because he had no control over her tardy behavior.

Recent reports suggested Lohan was often late to set and attempted to walk away with pricey jewelery from the shoot, and on Wednesday Sheen addressed the tabloid gossip during an appearance on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.

When asked whether it was true Lohan was late to work, Sheen quipped, “Not on day one… 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 also explained the star once showed up over two hours late after complaining of an earache: “She was really not feeling well. We worked around it. She was late, what can I say? But she got to the shoot prepared with an excuse.”

Host Leno then wondered whether any props went missing after Lohan appeared on the program, and the actor responded, “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.”

Lohan’s stint on the TV show will likely be her last acting job for the next few months – she is due to check into rehab by May 2 after pleading no contest to charges relating to a car crash in California last summer, which violated her probation on a jewelery theft charge.

Sheen has not confirmed the exact amount of his generous gift, but he recently claimed the money was simply to help Lohan’s cash flow after she failed to receive payment for another project – although he was a little annoyed that theMean Girls star had yet to thank him for the favor.

He said, “She’s a very good and decent young lady that is just going through a lot. They owed her money, didn’t pay her, so I took care of it. My whole code’s about pay it forward.

“She got shorted and I found out, so I said, ‘Here.’ I’m still waiting for a text to say thank you. Anything, anything, you know?”

His comments subsequently reached Lohan, and she promptly had a bouquet of flowers sent to Sheen to apologize for the delay and show her appreciation for his act of kindness, according to

Charlie Sheen and Warner Brothers Reach Settlement In $100 Million Lawsuit

Charlie Sheen’s massive lawsuit against Warner Bros. Television and ‘Two and a Half Men’ creator Chuck Lorre has been settled to all parties “mutual satisfaction,” Warner Bros. announced Monday. The studio said the terms of the settlement will remain private.
“Warner Bros. Television, Chuck Lorre and Charlie Sheen have resolved their dispute to the parties’ mutual satisfaction. The pending lawsuit and arbitration will be dismissed as to all parties. The parties have agreed to maintain confidentiality over the terms of the settlement,” the studio said in a statement.
Sheen filed the $100 million lawsuit in March following his firing from Two and a Half Men. He sought compensation for himself and the show’s crew for the eight episodes that were canceled as a result of his departure. “Defendant Chuck Lorre… believes himself to be so wealthy and powerful that he can unilaterally decide to take money away from the dedicated cast and crew of ‘Two and a Half Men’ in order to serve his own ego and self-interest, and make the star of the Series the scapegoat for Lorre’s own conduct,” Sheen claimed in court documents.
Ashton Kutcher was introduced as Sheen’s replacement on the season nine premiere of Two and a Half Men. The episode raked in 27.8 million viewers – the highest viewership ever for an episode of the show.
