LOS ANGELES--Some alleged reporter welcomed Lucy Lu to the cast of ABC's Dirty Sexy Money with the following press tour zinger:
"You're going to be 40 next year...talk about being sexy over 40 on TV these days."
"There goes my career," Lu said under her breath before answering the question. "I can speak about being sexy after 40 in January."
Castmate William Baldwin saved the day by being his own direct self. He was asked about the similarities between his "morally compromised" New York politician character and some real life politicians (including prostitute-lovin' N.Y. governor Eliot Spitzer). Baldwin said he was surprised these guys were dumb enough to get caught. "Every time I've ever been with a hooker, there's never been any kind of an electronic trail," he volunteered.
Somewhere, Charlie Sheen is laughing.
