Charlie Sheen has never been one to hold back.
The 51-year-old actor appeared on Watch What Happens Live! on Wednesday, when he got candid about a number of his female co-stars over the years. When host Andy Cohen asked him to rank a few of his leading ladies from favorite to least favorite -- including Selma Blair, Lindsay Lohan, Jenny McCarthy and Heather Locklear -- Sheen was only fond of his Spin City co-star.
