Charlie Sheen is ever the ladies' man.
While Jon Cryer has remained quiet about the nuclear explosion at Two and a Half Men, prompting his former costar to label him a "turncoat" and other choice adjectives, a couple of the show's female stars are expressing their sadness over the way things turned out.
And apparently the castmembers have been talking to each other, if not to Sheen, who complained last week that no one had called him after production was suspended.
"I've been talking to a lot of the cast, and we all have a desire to gather as a group and express our feelings about what's happened," Marin Hinkle, who plays Cryer's ex-wife, tells E! News.
"We've been calling each other and we've been trying to come up with a way to get out there how we feel about what's happened with the show. It's so sad that this may be the end of something amazing all because of a lot of ego-fighting and pain, and obviously the sad condition of Charlie's health."
Sheen's condition was depicted as particularly bad in a letter sent to the actor's attorney by Warner Bros. Television, which basically said Sheen had become incapable of doing his job properly for a variety of reasons, including a decline in his appearance and his decreasing ability to productively collaborate with producers.
Hinkle is one of the non-"trolls" who have since given him a ring, along with Angus T. Jones, Conchata Ferrell and Melanie Lynskey, Sheen told E! News today.
Adds Holland Taylor, who plays Sheen and Cryer's mother: "Charlie was cordial and polite with all of his castmates and crew, sometimes even courtly—and always witty. We watched movies at his house occasionally—warm evenings with interesting, spirited conversation. This is the guy I know."
Presumably that was before the goddesses moved in...
"In this very sad and complicated time," Taylor continues. "I really have no comment beyond valuing my own history with Charlie, and my abiding affection for him."
The Emmy nominee was one of the first to lend her support to Sheen when he was hospitalized last month for a hernia flare-up following a marathon party session.
