Jon Cryer: I'm Happy Charlie Didn't Die

Jon Cryer thought Charlie Sheen was going to die. Even though Charlie once called his "Two and a Half Men" co-star a "troll," Jon Cryer still feared for Sheen, stating that he was afraid the actor would die from his hard partying lifestyle.

Believe it. This is real life and not an episode from TAHM. "Hey Charlie, don't die" says Cryer’s character. [Hot woman enters room] [Canned audience laughter] [Thunderous applause] [Cue intro music]

The prostitutes and the bizarre catchphrases are nothing compared to Sheen's drug problems who once bragged that he was "banging seven gram rocks" of cocaine. Which is not really bragging but rather an admission at Narcotics Anonymous.

Jon Cryer appeared on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and tells Degeneres, "Mostly I was worried that Charlie was going to die. That was the big fear for me. And that did not occur and I'm thrilled about that."

Sheen was dramatically fired from the show for being a lunatic but for also publicly criticizing TAHM show creator, Chuck Lorre.

Sheen also took some digs at Cryer, who he thought had "betrayed" him when he did not call after Charlie was fired.

Sheen once said, "Jon has not called me. He's a turncoat, a traitor, a troll. Like I said, you're with me, or you're with the trolls. Obviously he's with the trolls."

Obviously. Always with the trolls. There's no other way.

Sheen has since claimed that he was "in a mood" when he lashed out, and by "in a mood" he means, sucking on crack rocks. However, the two have yet to reconcile.

Jon says, "We have not spoken. I will accept an apology both public and private. But again, it was in the heat of the moment, I imagine, when he said it. So I did not put a whole lot of credence in it at the time."

Ellen echoed Cryer's sentiments, “Yes, I think we wish him well in health and that he goes on because he is a talented guy.”

Then in a weird sort of olive branch moment, Ellen presented Cryer with a t-shirt marked with Sheen's famous catchphrase "#WINNING"

Guess who's winning now Sheen? Yah, that would be Jon Cryer, who is STILL starring on TV's most popular television series. #Sorry

The season 9 premiere of TAHM returns on Monday September 19th on CBS with Ashton Kutcher replacing Charlie with a new character called Walden Schmidt and the first episode will feature a funeral for the death of Sheen's character.

Kutcher says the premiere does not handle the death in a sensitive manner, at all, "It's going to offend people just as much as every episode has offended people. We've definitely found our dynamic," admits Kutcher.
