Charlie Sheen Regrets Throwing Ashton Kutcher 'Into A Crossfire'
Well, whaddya know? Even a self-professed "warlock" can have a heart.
Following a frustrated blow-up four days ago in which Charlie Sheen claimed "I'm tired of pretending Ashton (Kutcher) doesn't suck" or that the CBS hit "Two and a Half Men" that Kutcher replaced him on didn't do the same, Entertainment Weekly reports that Sheen has found his senses. An open letter to Kutcher posted Tuesday on Charliesheen.com admits that Sheen was too hard on "a man doing his best."
Sheen called into "TMZ Live" Feb. 16 and spouted off "I'm tired of lying. I'm tired of pretending the show doesn't suck. I'm tired of pretending Ashton doesn't suck. I'm tired of pretending they're not completely adrift . . . I just feel bad for [Kutcher]. He's saddled with such bad writing . . . It's kind of leaving your child behind with somebody and them not really taking good care of it."
I was disrespectful to a man doing his best.
I got excited and threw you into a crossife.
The rest of my statement I stand behind.
You, however, deserve better.
Safety in your travels good sir.
-The "late" Charlie Harper
To put it into fair context, Sheen's rant followed a dispute in which Warner Bros. and "Two And A Half Men" creator Chuck Lorre informed Sheen that he couldn't use clips from his run with the show to promote his newly picked-up FX comedy "Anger Management," set for a 10-episode initial order. According to Digital Spy, Lorre has even claimed he has "no intention" of checking out Sheen's new show once it debuts.
He's set to start shooting the new comedy March 22.
