(LOS ANGELES) — Charlie Sheen has changed his opinion of Ashton Kutcher, his replacement on the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men.
Speaking with TMZ.com last week, Sheen said, “I’m tired of lying and tired of pretending Ashton doesn’t suck.” He also said he “feels bad” for Kutcher because he’s been, “saddled with such bad writing” on Two and a Half Men.
Sheen was more complimentary of Kutcher on Tuesday, when he wrote on his website, “Dear Ashton, My bad. I was disrespectful to a man doing his best. I got excited and threw you into a crossfire.”
Sheen didn’t bother trying to make amends with Kutcher’s colleagues on the Two and a Half Men set.
He wrote to Kutcher, “The rest of my statement I stand behind. You, however, deserve better.”
Sheen signed the message as “The ‘late’ Charlie Harper,” in reference to his Two and a Half Men character, who was killed off the show.
Sheen was fired from Two and a Half Men last year due to his erratic behavior at the time. He then filed a $100 million lawsuit against Two and a Half Men producer Warner Bros. that was later settled.
Warner Bros. recently demanded that he stop using publicity photographs from his Two and a Half Men days to promote his upcoming FX comedy, Anger Management.
According to E! News, Sheen will begin shooting his new series on March 22. It debuts in June.
