Thursday gossip roundup: Charlie Sheen thinks Lindsay Lohan is ‘terrific’

Lindsay Lohan wasn’t too sick to fly after all. Despite reportedly being too under the weather to make it from New York back to L.A. this week for a Wednesday court date, the troubled actress showed up after all, wearing a little black dress and Louboutin heels, according to the Associated Press. “I’m glad to see you’re feeling better,” Judge Stephanie Sautner told Lohan at the hearing. Lohan pleaded not guilty to three misdemeanor counts stemming from a car crash last summer. If found guilty, she could face 245 days in jail because of probation violations. “She’s on probation,” Sautner said at the hearing. “The condition is that she obey all laws.”

At least Charlie Sheen isn’t worried about Lindsay Lohan‘s legal troubles. “She’s terrific,” he tells Jay Leno in an interview. “I mean she’s going through a lot of stuff, but she’s smart and super-talented and will come out on top eventually, you know.” As for the $100,000 Sheen loaned the troubled actress — money she reportedly put toward her massive tax bill — Sheen says, “I didn’t know it was for taxes. If I had known that, I’d have given her half, you know.”

John Mayer is definitely mellowing when it comes to dealing with paparazzi. “The way that the media plays a part in everyone’s life has changed over the last several years,” he tells RollingStone.com. “I mean, I used to be incredibly put off by somebody taking a picture, thinking as if in some way it was it was invading my brain. But all it is is you can see where I was last weekend. That’s all. And I think time has shown that nothing will be stolen from you. It’s just a photograph of you and your dumb scarf that you put on because it wouldn’t fit in your suitcase. Cool.”

Oscar-nominee Jennifer Lawrence recently told Metro that her “Silver Linings Playbook” co-star Bradley Cooper had taught her that she can’t go to the grocery store anymore now that she’s famous. ” It’s fine, I can get friends to get my groceries,” she said last month. But apparently Lawrence thought the height of awards season was a good time to try again, as she was spotted this week at a Los Angeles supermarket, buying groceries incognito under a large purple hat and a massive scarf, according to photo agency X-17.

Steven Soderbergh might be retiring from directing, but that doesn’t mean a sequel to last year’s “Magic Mike” isn’t on the way — at least according to Matthew McConaughey, who played the leader of a team of male strippers in the film. “I know it’s something that’s legitimately brewing,” McConaughey tells MTV News. “In the right way [I would come back. It would be so much fun, but I would only be able to revisit [my character] Dallas if I really go, ‘OK, that’s what he would be doing.’ I’d have to keep him the same tone.”
