Charlie Sheen is set to make his return to the small screen in the upcoming “Anger Management” on FX, but which female actress is in the lead to play opposite the headline-maker?
”[Selma Blair] is a strong frontrunner. She’s a very special lady and is as pretty as the day is long and has never really had the opportunity to do something where she can shine, because off camera she’s hilarious,” Charlie told Billy Bush on Tuesday’s Access Hollywood Live, which aired live from a poolside at the Fontainebleau Hotel in Miami Beach. “I think [she’s] one of the prettiest women in Hollywood.”
As for his former real life leading lady, Denise Richards, who he recently vacationed with in Mexico, the actor said he was overjoyed to reconnect with his children — daughters Sam, 7, and Lola, 6 — and his and ex-wife.
“It was fabulous. It was one of those trips that reestablished what should have been in place a long time ago. But things happen when they’re supposed to,” Charlie continued. “I came home with like a whole new family.”
The trip even made the actor ponder why their marriage went south.
“She’s really fabulous, best mom in the world,” he said of Denise – who he affectionately referred to as a “stone cold hammer.” “I’m like, ‘Why did I leave her?’ Oh right, she left me!”
Currently, Charlie doesn’t have a serious relationship with anyone special.
“I don’t have a girlfriend, no, but I’m having a good time,” he explained.
His good times include owning up to his past mishaps and shenanigans.
“Listen to this crap! Did this really happen? It’s so silly. It was an odyssey of, ‘What was that?’” Charlie said as Billy read the actor a few of his now infamous phrases like, “Winning,” and “Tiger Blood.” “I don’t think that can happen again, but I own that whole experience. It was really kind of an elaborate lesson to remind me to basically stick to what you know.”
Adding, “I insist on enjoying every moment these days.”
“Anger Management” premieres on FX in June.
