He may have been recently booed on stage in Detroit, but Burbank still loves Charlie Sheen. Though the crazy train that is Sheen's 22-city live tour has yet to schedule L.A. as a stop, the warlock/tiger/Adonis/violent torpedo of truth himself stopped by Hyaena for Winning: The Charlie Sheen Exhibit (running through April 15). And what better place to host an art show inspired by his wacky ramblings than a gallery that specializes in Gothic, horror and serial killer art? (That cleaver painted with Anton LaVey's face would work for cutting up lines of coke).

After word of the exhibit reached Sheen, the actor popped into the Burbank gallery -- which is conveniently located only a few blocks from Warner Bros. Studio where Two and a Half Men was filmed-- last Wednesday, with his "goddesses" Bree Olsen and Natalie Kenly in tow. He posed for pictures with owner Bill Shafer, signed and bought a few of the art works, and even provided commentary on some of the pieces, which the gallery had on video and played on constant rotation during Saturday's opening reception.
