Sheen re­grets Kutcher jibes

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS -

CHAR­LIE Sheen re­grets be­ing “stupidly mean” to Ash­ton Kutcher.

The 51-year-old ac­tor was fired from Two and a Half Men in 2011 fol­low­ing his in­fa­mous melt­down, with the for­mer Punk’d star step­ping in as the new lead cast mem­ber.

With hind­sight, Sheen wishes he’d been kin­der to his re­place­ment as he knows how dif­fi­cult it can be to step into some­one else’s shoes.

Speak­ing on KIIS 1065’s Kyle & Jackie O Show, he said: “I was stupidly mean to him be­cause I over­looked the re­al­ity and dif­fi­culty of tak­ing over a show.

“Which I did. I took over Spin City when Michael J Fox was too sick to work, but no one ever put those two to­gether. So, I should have been nicer.”

Sheen, who re­peat­edly slammed Kutcher af­ter he took over Two and a Half Men, took steps to bury the hatchet with the 38-year-old star a few months ago.

“I saw him at a Dodgers game back in Novem­ber and I forced him into a hand­shake. I said, ‘Give me that cup of cof­fee, young man, and shake my hand.’ It was awk­ward but I made it fine, be­cause I felt bad for him.

“He thought he was go­ing to catch a right cross, but I just wanted to give him a hug. He was tasked with such an up­hill strug­gle and I was more into my own ego than I was aware of his own bat­tle. And for that I am re­gret­ful.”

How­ever, one per­son Sheen still holds a grudge against is the show’s cre­ator Chuck Lorre. “The most ridicu­lous im­pos­tor. ”

The Anger Man­age­ment star ad­mit­ted that while he was still strug­gling with his per­sonal prob­lems, Lorre called him to ask if he was de­lib­er­ately try­ing to sab­o­tage the show. Show­ing that his anger man­age­ment was sub par, he said, “What I should’ve said is, ‘Dude, when you’re done touch­ing it, suck it!’” – Bang Me­dia
