Jon Cryer, one of the many people Charlie Sheen has revolted against, put aside his feelings about his former co-star’s rants and revealed a stunning admission about his true feelings for his longtime friend.
After being mum on the subject for months, Jon Cryer finally admitted on today’s Ellen DeGeneres Show that he was worried for his former c0-star’s life during those tumultuous weeks after Charlie Sheen was let go from Two and a Half Men.
He revealed, “Mostly, I was worried that Charlie was going to die. That was the big fear for me.”
Cryer, who successfully made the segue from teen idol to sitcom superstar, revealed for the first time how concerned he was about Sheen’s state of mind and the quick downward spiral he took in the early months of 2011.
“I am glad. And that…did not occur and I’m thrilled about that,” he stated.
DeGeneres also asked Cryer the one question everyone was dying to know the answer to. How did he feel when Sheen tried to publicly humiliate him by calling Cryer a troll and did Sheen ever apologize for the hurtful things he had said.
Always a gentleman, Cryer responded with, “We have not spoken. And I will accept an apology both public and private. But again, it was in the heat of the moment I imagine when he said…So I did not put a whole lot of credence in it at the time.”
Back in Mar. of this year, Sheen did apoligize to Cryer, sort of, when he appeared on K-Earth 101 in Los Angeles and said, “I was in a mood and I threw that out there…It’s a half apology, it’s an apol.”
When Cryer appeared on Late Night with David Letterman in June, he stated, “As friends do, I love him. He’s a great friend. All of us, none of us wanted to continue with the show if we felt like it was hurting him, and there was a point at which, we felt like, there’s no control over him.”
