Sheen was quite clear, though. If Lohan wants to get clean, or straight, or whatever, she needs to listen to him, and do what he says.
I have a kinship with somebody [Lohan] who clearly needs a mentor, whether she wants one or not. She can continue to hang out with her dress shredding club buddies, or turn to me for some advice from a guy who's been down the road as well as every other side trail on the journey.
If she listens, she'll win. If she doesn't, that's on her.
There are some in-jokes there. When speaking about "dress shredding," Sheen is referring to the recent incident when Lohan ripped a borrowed designer gown. The $1,750 gown was worn to the amFAR gala in New York City, and Sheen is well aware of its value: He helped Lohan get the loan.
He's also back to referring to "winning."
Prior to that, as you might recall ... Sheen and Lohan became friends while working together on "Scary Movie 5," after which he gave the actress $100,000 to help with her income tax problems.
It took her quite some time -- and prompting -- to thank him, and that might explain her upcoming appearance on Sheen's cable TV show, "Anger Management." It is, of course, possible that Sheen is throwing Lohan a bone, since roles don't seem to be coming easy for her.
Sheen emphasizes that her friendship does not include benefits. He said,
I love her, I respect her, and I've never laid a finger on her that wasn't on film. How ya like me now, America?
