Charlie Sheen tells KISS Australia that he regrets being mean to Ashton Kutcher when Ashton took over for him on Two and a Half Men “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. 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’. 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. 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.”
