Love him or hate him, Charlie Sheen made an unforgettable impact on the hit TV show Two and a Half Men. However, his on-set behavior was nothing short of outrageous, particularly when it came to his ex-wife, Denise Richards. According to co-star Jon Cryer, Sheen panicked when he discovered that Richards was on her way to the set.
Charlie Sheen’s tumultuous career has been a wild ride filled with ups and downs, but one particular incident left his Two and a Half Men co-star Jon Cryer in disbelief. In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Cryer revealed that Sheen went batsh*t crazy when his ex-wife Denise Richards visited him on set.

In the show’s first season in 2003, Sheen was still with Richards, and she unexpectedly visited him on set. This made Charlie Sheen panic and turned to his co-star Jon Cryer for help. In the interview, Cryer recounted the incident, saying that Sheen rushed to his trailer with a heavy shopping bag and begged him to hide its contents.
“One day during the first season of Two and a Half Men, I got a knock on my trailer door. It was Charlie – my trailer was next to his – and he seemed panicked. ‘Dude! Dude! I need your help.’ Denise is coming over. I need you to hide something for me.”
Cryer feared the worst and asked if it was something illegal. Sheen assured him that it was legal and then left. When Cryer opened the bag, he shockingly found adult films but nothing unusual. While this may seem like a relatively tame request, it only began Sheen’s descent into madness. In the years that followed, the actor’s erratic behavior would spiral out of control, ultimately leading to his departure from the show.
