Charlie Sheen's Insults Almost Led To Chuck Lorre Quitting "Two And A Half Men"

Chuck LorreWhen Charlie Sheen took to the public airwaves and internet to verbally abuse his boss, Two And A Half Men co-creator, Chuck Lorre, he was ultimately fired from the hit comedy series.

However Lorre has now revealed that he wanted to leave the show before the Hot Shots star. Lorre told TV Guide, " I offered to quit the show last winter. I said, 'Listen, if for some reason I'm now the Antichirst, I'm happy to leav. It's not in my interest to stop the show, and I certainly don't want to put all these people out of work. Keep going. Get another guy. Don't stop on my account.'"

Lorre also noted that after Sheen was arrested for allegedly attacking his wife with a knife on Christmas Day in 2009, he wanted to quit the show and regrets not doing so. " When he started attacking people with knives, that's it. That should have been it. I should have walked. That's unthinkable. No more. I'm done. But for some reason I thought that because she was willing to forgive him .. we could emerge from this fiasco and be stronger and healthier."

Lorre still found time to prasise his former leading star, "Charlie is the epitome of cool and he made it look effortless. People never gave him enough credit for how skillful he was because he made it look so easy."

What about the attack cards that Chuck was using at the end of the episodes? It takes two to fight.
