Despite his exit, the actor managed to establish himself as one of the most entertaining characters on the show. Even his ex-wife, Denise Richards, admitted that no one could’ve replaced him on the show. Denise Richards’ visit to the sets of the show once proved to be quite hectic for the actor.
Denise Richards once visited Charlie Sheen on the sets of Two and a Half Men
Actor Charlie Sheen‘s ex-wife, Denise Richards once visited the actor on the sets of Two and a Half Men when they were together. She caught him off-guard as the actor went into full “panic mode” as he gave some of his belongings to Jon Cryer. Cryer recalled the conversation,
“One day during the first season of Two and a Half Men, I got a knock on my trailer door. It was Charlie — my trailer was next to his — and he seemed panicked.’
‘Dude! Dude! I need your help.’ ‘Sure thing,’ I said and ended the cellphone call I was on. ‘What’s going on?’
He handed me a heavy shopping bag. ‘Denise is coming over,’ he said, ‘and I need you to hide something for me.’ Oh, boy, I thought. If this is drug paraphernalia.’
‘Is it legal?’ I asked. ‘What? Yeah, oh, yeah. It’s legal. Hey, thanks.’ He left, and I had to look.”
As per Jon Cryer, the bag contained adult films that the actor was trying to hide from his partner.
Why did Charlie Sheen and Denise Richards end their relationship?
Three years after Charlie Sheen started his run in 2003 in the sitcom Two and a Half Men, the actor finalized his divorce from Denise Richards. Richards once opened up about their split. The relationship reportedly ended because of Sheen’s behavior and the kids. She said,
“The behind-the-scenes stuff was way worse than what was out there. Would I want my daughters to be married to this man? No offense to him, but I think he would take that and understand what I’m saying. It was very toxic.”
Their relationship came to an end in 2006, however, Richards once admitted that their relationship wasn’t “that bad” as there was a “beautiful love story between them.”
Denise Richards said no one could replace the actor
Despite the fallout in their marriage, Denise Richards once explained that no one can replace Charlie Sheen as Charlie Harper in the sitcom. She talked about his exit,
“I am sad to see Charlie not on the show. Nobody can replace Charlie. The show was written for him and he was so brilliant at it, but I think Ashton will make it his own.”
In 2011, Sheen was fired from the show because of his “dangerously self-destructive conduct,” difficulty at work, and inflammatory comments to producers. He began making a string of negative comments about series creator Chuck Lorre and that did not sit well with everyone.
