Charlie Sheen: Lance Armstrong is kind of a d*!$#@
Charlie Sheen isn't a fan of Lance Armstrong.
"He's kind of a douche," the "Anger Management" star told Jay Leno on Wednesday's "The Tonight Show." "Wow, I didn't just say that, did I? ... That's based on meeting him."
Sheen recalled his first encounter years ago with the now-disgraced cyclist, who, after years of denials, recently admitted in an interview with Oprah Winfrey that he used banned substances and blood doping to win seven Tour de France titles. Sheen said he introduced himself to Armstrong, who pretty much dismissed the actor.
"He said, 'That's nice,'" Sheen said. In an aside to Leno, Sheen pretended to address Armstrong: "Sorry to bother you, Captain Bitchin'. Go get a paper route, dude."
Leno added that Armstrong is getting more heat than he might have not just because he "cheated, but the fact that he ruined the lives of people" who called him out. Sheen -- who himself is no stranger to scandal -- agreed.
"If he was a better guy ... in his life, he'd be forgiven a lot faster and a lot easier -- kinda like me," he said to audience applause.
Sheen also weighed in on the rumor that he recently gave $100,000 to troubled star Lindsay Lohan. After joking that was "just for dinner," he revealed that it had to do with their appearances in the upcoming "Scary Movie 5." He said that when Lohan signed on for the movie, she was supposed to be given half of Sheen's salary but was shorted.
"They took half of my money to give to her, and she didn't get it all," he said. "So when I found this out, I said, 'You got shorted a hundred grand.' So I gave it to her."
He added of Lohan: "She's going through some stuff, but she's smart and super talented, and I think she will come out on top."
