The first of Charlie Sheen's "Two and a Half Men" co-stars to speak out about the controversy surrounding the show is saying she's had no problems working with Sheen.
"Charlie was cordial and polite with all of his cast mates and crew, sometimes even courtly -- and always witty," actress Holland Taylor told the Associated Press in an email. On the show, Taylor plays Evelyn Harper, the conceited mother to Sheen's character and that of his co-star, Jon Cryer.
"We watched movies at his house occasionally -- warm evenings with interesting, spirited conversation. This is the guy I know," Taylor said. "In this very sad and complicated time, I really have no comment," she added, saying "beyond valuing my own history with Charlie, and my abiding affection for him."
Warner Brothers -- which produces Sheen's hit CBS show "Two and a Half Men" -- announced Monday that it was firing the star in this statement: "After careful consideration, Warner Bros. Television has terminated Charlie Sheen’s services on 'Two and a Half Men,' effective immediately."
