Holland Taylor defends Charlie Sheen: 'Charlie was cordial and polite'

Posted on

Image Credit: Mitchell Haddad/CBSIs Holland Taylor drinking the Tiger Blood (along with Roseanne Barr)? The actress, who plays Charlie Sheen and Jon Cryer’s mother on Two and a Half Men, is one of the few in the industry coming to Charlie Sheen’s defense. In an email to the Associated Press, Holland wrote, “Charlie was cordial and polite with all of his cast mates 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.”

Taylor continued: “In this very sad and complicated time, I really have no comment beyond valuing my own history with Charlie, and my abiding affection for him.” Sheen’s three other main co-stars — Angus T. Jones, Jon Cryer, and Conchata Ferrell — have remained silent on the actor’s bizarre media blitz, but Cryer did appear on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last week after CBS shut down production on the series, starring in a sketch as DeGeneres’ receptionist and claiming, “I needed the work.” For more on Charlie Sheen, visit EW’s Charlie Sheen Central.
