“Look what happened to Angus T Jones, man”: Charlie Sheen Blamed ‘Two and a Half Men’ Creator Chuck Lorre for Devouring Child Co-Star’s Life

It was when Melanie Lynskey left one of the biggest TV shows, Two and a Half Men, that she exactly started to flourish. After serving as a main cast member for two seasons, she infamously left Two and a Half Men in 2005. Then she made appearances on a number of popular shows, including HBO Max’s The Last of Us. 

She has excelled in every episode of Yellowjackets, one of the hottest shows on television right now, and Lynskey has really established herself as a star with her performance since then.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Lynskey discussed a personal experience that influenced her portrayal of Shauna in Yellowjackets, which has been praised for its excellence.

However, when talking about her exit from Two and a Half Men in 2005, the Yellowjackets star told Vulture that she had spent nearly a year negotiating with the makers. In addition, Charlie Sheen, who played the lead in Two and a Half Men, added to the rumors by claiming that Chuck Lorre was the person in charge of the unfavorable atmosphere on set.

Charlie Sheen blamed Melanie Lynskey’s divorce on Chuck Lorre

Everyone knows by now that even before Charlie Sheen left Two and Half Men, he didn’t think too highly of Chuck Lorre. He also made fun of The Big Bang Theory in some of his criticisms. When Sheen made a brief cameo appearance on the show, he attacked the show’s creator while also expressing his “sorrow” for the cast.

Sheen made further revelations while speaking with The Guardian, claiming that Lorre’s direction had destroyed many lives, including his co-star Melanie Lynskey’s personal life, following her divorce.

“Look what happened to Angus [T Jones], man. Look what happened to me, look what happened to Melanie Lynskey, who’s getting divorced. That show devoured like 12 marriages.”

Of course, everyone is aware of what happened to Angus T. Jones, who quit the series after having an outburst about it on the set. While Melanie Lynskey, who is currently succeeding in The Last of Us, had been in the phase of divorcing. Though, it reportedly appeared that her marriage ended amicably.

Melanie Lynskey enjoyed her time alongside Charlie Sheen

Melanie Lynskey, who played Rose on Two and a Half Men, had a cult following while appearing on the show. She filmed a total of 63 episodes of the sitcom, between 2003 and 2015. Despite her success as Rose and her popularity on the show, Lynskey’s experience behind the scenes was very contrasting. She was reportedly paid very little and was also constantly demotivated from taking on other roles at the time.

“When the show got picked up, they asked me to be a regular; that was a harder decision. But everyone around me was like, ‘Wow, this is great, congratulations.’ So I decided to try it on.”

Despite the unpleasant atmosphere and her sour experience on the set, Lynskey reportedly couldn’t stop praising her co-star Charlie Sheen.
