“What I realized now is that he wrote a fantastic memoir called Brat and he was already struggling with alcoholism when we were filming that movie,” Cryer said.

Cryer added that he “projected all these things onto him at that moment.” I thought he was a surly guy who doesn’t want to talk to me. Yes, we’re kind of enemies in the movie, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be friends.’

He admitted that when they were filming the movie, “we just didn’t have any relationship at the time.”

“I later found out that I was going through some really difficult things, so that was a big lesson for me, because it’s all about projection,” Cryer admitted.

Cryer was also asked about the chances of reconciling with another co-star, Two and a Half Men’s Charlie Sheen, as there have been rumors of a reboot lately.

‘Charlie is doing much better now, which is wonderful. “He and I haven’t spoken in a few years, but he’s doing a lot better, which I’m obviously very happy about,” Cryer added.

He said that Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre is one of the most “legendary” television producers and when the show fell apart, “he really felt like he was friends with Charlie and when he lost that it was very difficult for him.” “. That they have reconciled is really nice.’

“The thing for me is, when they were on Two and a Half Men, Charlie was like the highest-paid actor on television, probably of all time. There’s been no one who’s surpassed the enormous amount of money he was making and , however, blew it up,” Cryer said.

“What I realized now is that he wrote a fantastic memoir called Brat and he was already struggling with alcoholism when we were filming that movie,” Cryer said.

“So you have to think: I love him, I wish him the best, I hope he lives in good health for the rest of his life, but I don’t know if I want to do business with him.” for any period of time,” Cryer admitted.

He said it might be different if it was a “one-off” or something, but not a full series.

Cryer’s new series, Extended Family, follows a divorced couple, Jim and Julia (Cryer and Abigail Spencer), who try to manage co-parenting their children.

Their lives become even more complicated when Trey Taylor (Donald Faison), the owner of Jim’s favorite sports team, the Boston Celtics, starts dating Julia.
