Charlie Sheen: Life After "Two and a Half Men"

Fresh off of being fired from his hit comedy, Charlie Sheen stepped out with 'goddess' Natalie Kenly in Beverly Hills, California on Monday afternoon (March 7).

Seemingly not having a care in the world, the 45-year-old actor puffed a cigarette and wrapped his arm around his lady while visiting a local office building for a business meeting.

As for being let go from "Two and a Half Men", a letter from a Warner Bros. legal staffer told Sheen's attorney that his client should "focus your energies on what no one so far has been able to do: get your client the sustained, rigorous and effective treatment he so urgently needs. It is clear that [Sheen] has no intention of agreeing to the intensive evaluation and treatment that his condition require. It is also clear he does not believe he has a problem and that he will continue to conduct himself in a destructive manner."

In response to the dismissal notice, Charlie's legal eagle, Marty Singer, told THR, "We will sue. It’s a matter of when. It could be this week, it could be in a little while. We’re in no rush. But we will sue.”

Singer continued, “Their position is absolutely ridiculous. Warner Bros. had no objection to my client pleading guilty to a felony while they were actively negotiating his new deal—they did his deal before his plea bargain!”

“From January 2010, even after my client was arrested and then charged with a felony and misdemeanor charges, Warner Bros. did not suspend my client. Instead it wanted my client to agree to commit to do additional seasons of [Men]. Warner Bros. confirmed that it would continue to employ Mr. Sheen even if he pleaded guilty to a felony as long as he did not serve jail time that would interfere with the production schedule."

Sheen's lawyer finished by stating, “This is nothing but Warner Bros. acting on behalf of Chuck Lorre."

Scarlett Johansson: MANGO Madness

She’s no stranger to the MANGO catalog, and Scarlett Johansson looks especially sexy in the brand’s March 2011 offerings.

The “In Good Company” babe really shows off her full range of modeling prowess, and no matter what she’s wearing, Scarlett looks amazing.

Ms. Johansson was spotted in Cabo San Lucas last Tuesday with Sean Penn, though she’s since returned to the States to work on her new film “We Bought a Zoo.”

However, Scarlett and Sean are said to be planning a humanitarian trip to Haiti sometime this spring.

Documentary Film about Set to Open Tribeca Film Festival

Set to take center stage, the documentary about the making of Sir Elton John's album "The Union" will open the 10th annual Tribeca Film Festival.

Organizers just announced that "The Union" will be one of the 32 featured films of the festival, with the "Tiny Dancer" based picture to be the very first one shown.

Of the decision, festival co-founder Jane Rosenthal told, “Cameron Crowe gives audiences unprecedented access into Elton John and Leon Russell’s artistic process in an emotional and realistic way."

"The Union" is set to be shown on the Tribeca Film Festival's April 20th kickoff, with Elton set to perform live after the screening.
