Mike Tyson pretended to bite Charlie Sheen’s ear during the red carpet event for the horror-comedy Scary Movie 5.
The former heavyweight champion and the former Two and a Half Men star recent showed up for the premiere of their movie in Hollywood, California. The event was held at the ArcLight Cinemas Cinerama Dome on Thursday evening.
Tyson decided to goof around with photographers by pretending to take a chunk out of Sheen’s ear. The actor played along by pretending to scream in pain. Although the pictures are certainly amusing, Evander Holyfield probably didn’t think the exchange was too hilarious.
The Scary Movie 5 premiere also served as a mini-reunion for Charlie Sheen and Lindsay Lohan. The two have spent a fair amount of time together in recent months. In addition to sharing a bed together in the big-screen comedy, the two joined forces for an episodes of the FX sitcom Anger Management.
While Sheen recently said that Lohan held his show hostage during her appearance, there appeared to be no bad blood between the two friends. Charlie was snapped delivering a delicate kiss to Lohan’s cheek at one point during the event.
Mike Tyson, Lindsay Lohan, and Charlie Sheen’s ear weren’t the only celebrities in attendance for the Scary Movie 5 premiere. Ashley Tisdale, Heather Locklear, Jerry O’Connell, and DWTS contestant Andy Dick also showed up to promote the film.
Although Scary Movie 5 is expected to make a modest sum of money over the course of the weekend, analysts believe the upcoming Jackie Robinson biopic 42 will take the top spot when all is said and done. The horror-comedy is expected to earn around $17 million at the box office.
