One of the most awkward moments at the Emmys did not happen on the stage, but it happened backstage. I know many people thought that Charlie Sheen
‘s heartfelt speech to his former-show was a little awkward, but I am sure that was a piece of cake as compared to finally meeting Ashton Kutcher
a few minutes later backstage.
The former Two and a Half Men star Tweeted the above top two pictures and said, “Giving the new kid a little advice..! With @aplusk backstage at the Emmy’s…” Which he then followed with, “Seriously… @aplusk great talking to you! We’ll all be watching! Make us proud!!” So how did the new Two and a Half Men star feel about their chance meeting? APlusk Tweeted, “@charliesheen good to meet you too. Wishing you the best on your new gig.” Before having a request for the man whose job he took over, “@charliesheen btw I’d love to connect with you at some point and talk about Human trafficking and what @dnafoundation is working on.” Ummm, who wants to tell Ashton that Sheen has a thing for hookers?
So how shocking was their special moment? Jeremy Piven
Tweeted the final picture of the two of them and said, “This just happens!” I think his candid photo says it best!
Now when it comes to how Charlie’s former-costars feel about his speech, they though that was the man they know and love. Holland Taylor
who played his mom Tweeted, “@charliesheen Wasn’t it great! SO glad he stepped up. Yes, the exchange moved me a lot. That reach across time and space.” And Melanie Lynskey
, his TV wife(?), girlfriend and stalker Rose Tweeted, “@HollandTaylor @charliesheen love this exchange.& charlie I was so happy to see your gracious & sweet self on TV tonight. Lovely job. xo mel” I guess there is a side of him, you and I have never seen.
And tonight we will see him die on Two and a Half Men
as the show returns without him on CBS at 9p.
