EXECS TO SHEEN: NOPE – AND NO BUTTS ABOUT IT
LOSING!! CHARLIE SHEEN’s not just starring in his upcoming TV series “Anger Management,” he’s trying to practice it now that he’s been told by producers: NO! You CANNOT smoke on the show!
“Charlie’s been battling with show execs since Day One, saying he wants to smoke on the show because he feels it fits his character,” said my hush-hush source, Onda Settalot.
“But more than that, Charlie smokes like a chimney in real life, and hates the idea of slipping outside or sneaking off to his dressing room to puff away.
By incorporating smoking into the show, the star can smoke on the set anytime.”
But producers still are standing firm on their no-smoking edict, saying it projects a negative impression.
“They want Charlie to be seen in the best light possible for the sake of the show,” said the source.
“But more than that, they don’t want to pay for an extra Fire Marshal to be present on the set when Charlie’s smoking.”
