Charlie Sheen: I wish I'd swallowed my pride

Charlie Sheen thinks he made the damage he caused on the set of Two and a Half Men "irreparable".

The 49-year-old actor starred in TV show Two and a Half Men for eight years but was dropped from the programme in 2011. His dismissal came after he criticised creator Chuck Lorre, calling him "stupid", as well as bragging about his drug use and dating two women at the same time.

While he has moved on with his career since by starring in the likes of Anger Management, Charlie regrets how things went down.

“Yeah, I should have been a little more humble, more regretful, shouldn’t have attacked them like I did and I probably should have begged for my job back," he laughed to Extra. “Beg is a colour I don’t wear well. I probably should have requested my job back. I think that what went down was fixable, and I made it irreparable."

Anger Management ran for 100 episodes and Charlie enjoyed working on a set full of "compassion" and "creativity" where there were no raised voices.

While his acting schedule is relatively quiet at the moment it doesn't bother the star, who is making the most of his time off by spending it with his family.

“Five kids and a granddaughter, my oldest daughter Cassandra has a daughter named Luna," he grinned, referring to his daughter with high school girlfriend Paula Profit. He also has daughters Sam and Lola with ex-wife Denise Richards and twins Bob and Max with other former spouse, Brooke Mueller.

When quizzed on the differences between being a parent and a grandparent, Charlie joked he's able to leave his grandkids with diapers that "stink".

After an ongoing feud with Brooke over the custody of their boys, which Denise also became embroiled in when Brooke entered rehab, Charlie insists things are better now and even spent Mother's Day with both his ex-wives and their offspring.

“We're all smart and accomplished, and we're all adults, there's so many kids involved that it’s so much better for them," he added.
