Zac Efron and Miley Cyrus, who entered Madame Tussauds as teenage actors, have been given makeovers with their waxworks giving a more adult look.

High School Musical star Efron has ditched his original basketball strip for a suit and tie and Cyrus has swapped skinny jeans for a more glamorous silver, sequinned dress.

The figures were first unveiled around two years ago at the central London tourist attraction, reports the Telegraph.

Cyrus, 17, has been criticised in the past for posting provocative pictures of herself online.

Efron, 22, who made his name as the heartthrob on High School Musical, has recently taken on more mature roles.

His most recent film is the title role in Charlie St Cloud, which received a lukewarm reception from critics.

Charlie Sheen has pleaded guilty to a charge stemming from a Christmas Day dispute with his wife and has been ordered to spend 30 days in rehab.

The decision was part of a plea deal at a court hearing, in exchange of which, two other charges were dropped, People magazine reported.

The 44-year-old actor was also sentenced to three months probation and must complete 36 hours of domestic violence counseling.

However during the courtroom hearing, Sheen looked upbeat and when he was asked to enter a plea, he told the judge, "Guilty as charged your honor."

Asked why he was submitting that plea, he replied, "Because I'm guilty. I'm very grateful to the court and to the people of Pitkin County. I look forward to complying with the court's decision, getting on with my life and putting this behind me," Sheen said in a statement.

The Two and a Half Men star had previously pleaded not guilty to felony menacing, criminal mischief and assault against his wife Brooke Mueller Sheen, who told police he had pinned her down and threatened her with a knife.
