Two can play that game: after Charlie Sheen blasted his “Two and a Half Men” co-star Jon Cryer for being a “troll” and not having his back, Cryer comes out of the trolls' closet and admits that this is, in fact, true.
Cryer, who, as far as the media knows, is still on board of “Two and a Half Men” assuming it ever comes back on TV, has chosen to respond to his former co-star’s diss in the most gracious manner ever: with humor.
Those who’ve been following the Charlie Sheen frenzy of recent weeks know that he said of Cryer he was a “troll” for not reaching out to him when he was publicly fired from the show.
In the meantime, Charlie has apologized (half an apology, an “apol,” he called it). Either way, Cryer doesn’t seem to hold any grudges, as the video below will confirm.
Coming out on Conan’s show, the actor admitted that he was really a troll who had underwent lots of surgical interventions to look human and be able to work in Hollywood.
“Those words were very painful to me for many reasons, not least of which is. I can't believe I'm saying this. But the fact is I am a troll,” Cryer said, barely fighting back tears.
Having Sheen say that publicly forced him to come out, he went on to say. The truth is, there is not a lot of “tolerance” in Hollywood as regards trolls.
“It's not something I like to talk about. My parents don't even know... Of course, I guess they do now,” Cryer said.
“You have no idea how much time I've spent on electrolysis and hair dye and reconstructive surgery,” he added.
Now that he’s been outed, there’s no reason to keep the existence of other trolls from the public: so the actor goes on to reveal that there are many trolls working in showbiz, thus outing them.
Below is the video of Jon Cryer on Conan O’Brien, it’s a must-see. Enjoy.
Have always enjoyed Jon Cryer...wonderful actor...will always be the "duckman"...
It's too bad you couldn't get Bruce Willis (with that smirky little grin) combining their talent and potential chemistry....the viewers would laugh until they cried.......

I always knew there was something funny about John Cryer, but I didn't know he was a troll, and how big of pencil does he sit on top of? I laughed so hard when I first this that I woke my roommates up. They couldn't figure out what was so funny till they watched it. Working at DISH Network at night I have to DVR everything, and I watched this clip 4 times over just cause it was so hilarious. And John Cryer does not look like a troll in HD, and since my HD is free with any top package, I can afford that pencil for my under the bridge troll.
