Sheen and Lohan Make It a Date (Sort of) at ‘Scary Movie’

Duo play up cameo appearances in horror spoofer

Raucous fans rimmed Sunset Boulevard’s sidewalks April 11, all clamoring for the same hotshot heroes: “Lindsay! Lindsay!” they screamed. “Charlie! Charlie!” they yelled. Many of the shouting heads also came equipped with hand-drawn signs, sharpies and cameras in tow.

And so began Dimension’s preem for its horror spoofer “Scary Movie 5,” in which Lindsay Lohan makes an acrobatic, sexual cameo appearance with Charlie Sheen.

Photogs, journos and pedestrians alike all wanted a piece of the notorious thesps, who were reportedly going to make their entrance as dates. Lohan, of course, quickly became the topic of conversation on the Cinerama Dome carpet. Producer and scribe David Zucker, for one, offered up his opinions and cited Robert Downey Jr. as a figure of inspiration for Lohan.

“People turn their lives around all the time,” he said. “(Hollywood) seems to be the business for addictions and craziness. I don’t know what it takes for these people — finding religion or whatever — to straighten themselves out, but, you know, she’s a troubled human being.”

Also on hand were Katt Williams, Mike Tyson, Andy Dick and “Scary Movie” topliners Simon Rex and Ashley Tisdale. Tisdale, who momentarily plays Jessica Chastain’s character from “Mama,” and additionally spoofs roles from “Paranormal Activity” and “The Black Swan,” did not get to work directly with Lohan, but said she visited her on set.

“She’s hilarious in the movie, and Lohan and Sheen are both really funny together. The fact that they could just go out there and make fun of themselves takes a lot of guts,” Tisdale said. “I don’t really know what’s going on in her personal life — if anything I’d just love to see her do more movies.”

Whether Tisdale was serious or not, the two cameo champs eventually made their appearance and had the chance to speak for themselves.

“I’m taking care of myself,” said she.

“This town loves a comeback,” said he.

Sheen gave Lohan a kiss. Otherwise, they avoided each other while he made a beeline for the movie theater, flashing a peace sign to the press, and Lohan zipped by reporters to let out a horrified “Jesus!” as they asked more questions.

Before the screening, Zucker quipped that all the celebs — all two or so dozen of them — would be onscreen for at least one minute. Then, after the preem, guests crossed the street to Lure for the afterparty.
