Charlie Sheen admits being ‘stupidly mean’ to Ashton Kutcher

Charlie SheenCharlie Sheen is handing out olive branches this year.

The Two and a Half Men star appeared on the Kyle & Jackie O show on Wednesday and admitted that he regretted being “stupidly mean” to Ashton Kutcher, who replaced him on the show in 2011.

“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.”

The 51-year-old actor was on the show for eight seasons before he went to rehab. Shortly after, he was fired for throwing shade at Chuck Lorre, the show’s creator.

It was not long before his character was killed and replaced by Kutcher, 38. For quite a while Sheen, who was then the highest paid television actor, repeatedly slammed Kutcher on TV and on social media. Now the actor has turned over a new leaf.

“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 added: “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.”

Last week, Sheen extended an online olive branch to Rihanna after calling her a “b-tch.” At least, he’s trying. What do you think? ~Marriska Fernandes

    He was stupidly mean to a lot of other people. Now that the in-coming roles are fewer and fewer, and most of Hollywood don’t want to work with him, because he’s bad news, so now he’s playing mister nice guy. Even in this role, he’s bad at it.

    it’s never easy to say your sorry…. he was deep in addiction and feeling very sorry for himself. Take the apologies people. Might do you good to give and accept one every once in a while.

    I don’t think it’s ever too late to apologize…I’m impressed Charlie Sheen at least is trying to make amends…It’s great if him & some of his enemies agree to be friendly…It shows the world hey I f***ed up but now accept my apologies!!! Charlie Sheen is an amazing actor & he deserves the second chance.
