READ about Piers Morgan's long career in journalism here.
Coming up this evening at 9, "Piers Morgan Tonight" welcomes a guest whom the host introduces by simply saying "he's honest, he's funny, candid and completely, gloriously unpredictable." The gentleman in question – who joins Piers Morgan in studio for a primetime interview – is the infamous Charlie Sheen.
Two years since the actor's last appearance on the program, which came amidst a whirlwind period of media attention and public scrutiny as part of his leaving CBS's "Two and a Half Men, tonight Sheen opens up about another well-known Hollywood partygoer, actress and recording artist Lindsay Lohan.
Having worked together on the film "Scary Movie 5," Sheen details the circumstances behind a rather large sum of money he passed along to the 26-year-old.
"Why did you give Lindsay Lohan $100,000?" asks Morgan.
"I thought I was going to get it back," jokes Sheen. "No, no, no. It wasn't about that."
In truth, the money was simply to cover the fee that Lohan was promised, but not paid, for her work on the movie:
"They shorted her 100 [thousand dollars] on what I thought they were going to, so I made up the differences, that's all it was."
Noting that Lohan and Sheen have shared some similar experiences, the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host wonders if they've ever compared notes:
"You know, she was very famous, very young, and she's clearly struggled with that," begins Morgan. "And with various demons, alcohol, drugs and so on. Can you actually, even you, give somebody like that advice?"
"The only thing that I was saddened about...if she'd asked me questions about some of my own stuff, I would have gladly given her advice. But she didn't, and I found that interesting. Maybe she didn't want to bother me or...didn't want to pry."
Watch the clip, and listen to the interview, then tune in this evening at 9 for the full interview, as Sheen opens up about his feelings on guns in America, as well as Lance Armstrong, and his current relationship with CBS' Chuck Lorre, the man who fired him.
