Charlie Sheen Takes the Blame for the ‘Two and a Half Men’ Mess
During Charlie Sheen‘s meltdown after his exit from ‘Two and a Half Men‘ last year — something he now realizes was pretty ugly — he said some rather unpleasant things about his former boss, Chuck Lorre. But now Sheen seems to have some regrets about that, too.
[‘Two and a Half Men’ for me] ended in such a stupid way, that’s mostly on me … It all got icky because of me. Those guys were fine; they were classy. I was a f—ing idiot.
When it was good, it was great, man … Chuck Lorre gave me this arena to explore and succeed in and have a dream life. Thank you, Chuck. Seriously, Print that. He’s a f—ing genius. Print ‘thank you, Chuck.’
As for the sometimes lagging ratings of his old show since Ashton Kutcher replaced him, Sheen added, “They’re doing the best they can, man … They lost their anchor. It’s not an insult; it’s just — c’mon, guys, get it together. You can still win.”
But all that aside, he’s ready to move on with ‘Anger Management’ and praised its showrunner, Bruce Helford. “[He’s] the greatest showrunner alive. Period. The end,” Sheen said. “[He’s] compassionate, smart, noble [and] integral.”
Check out ‘Anger Management’ when it premieres tonight — Thursday, June 28 — at 9 p.m. on FX.
