In perhaps an awkward moment, Charlie Sheen met Ashton Kutcher face to face backstage at the 2011 Primetime Emmy Awards on Sunday, September 18. Their encounter was documented in a picture which was shared by the 46-year-old actor to his Twitter followers.
"Giving the new kid a little advice..! With @aplusk backstage at the Emmy's...," Sheen wrote under the image, which features him talking to his "Two and a Half Men" replacement. Jeremy Piven also captured Sheen and Kutcher's meeting, tweeting another picture with a message, "This just happens!"
The husband of Demi Moore later took to his own Twitter page to give a shoutout to Sheen after their meeting. "@charliesheen good to meet you too. Wishing you the best on your new gig," he wrote. Sheen wrote in return, "Seriously... @aplusk great talking to you! We'll all be watching! Make us proud!!"
Just moment before they bumped into each other backstage, Kutcher poked fun at Sheen on Emmy stage. "I don't think you look like a troll," the 33-year-old hunk told Jon Cryer, refering to an insult Sheen made at his former "Men" co-star a few months ago.
Earlier that night, Sheen also took the stage to present a kudo for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series to "The Big Bang Theory" star Jim Parsons. Before announcing the winner of the category, he made a nice statement about his former show, saying, "From the bottom of my heart, I wish you nothing but the best for this upcoming season. We spent eight wonderful years together and I know you will continue to make great television."
Kutcher will make his debut on "Two and a Half Men" as a new character, Walden Schmidt, during the season 9 premiere on Monday, September 19 at 9 P.M. on CBS. On the same day, Comedy Central will air a roast of Sheen at 10 P.M. The former "Sin City" actor will next headline a new sitcom "Anger Management".
