Charlie Sheen regrets being 'mean' to Ashton Kutcher
Actor Charlie Sheen feels extremely guilty about his behaviour towards Ashton Kutcher when he was replaced on 'Two and a Half Men' by the latter.
The 51-year-old actor was fired from the popular sitcom in 2011 following his infamous meltdown, with Kutcher, 38, stepping in as the new lead cast member. Sheen wishes he had been kinder to his replacement as he could imagine how difficult it would have been for Kutcher to step into someone else's shoes, reported Femalefirst.
Speaking on 'Kyle & Jackie O Show', Sheen 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.'"
However, the 'Anger Management' star, who repeatedly slammed Kutcher for some time after he took over 'Two and a Half Men' said he did take few steps to bridge the gap between them.
'"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.
