It was a painful moment for the actor, who appeared on “Conan” to make a confession: “The fact is,” Cryer says, “I am a troll. It’s not something I like to talk about.”
We hate to overuse a phrase, but this monologue? Winning.
“There’s not a lot of tolerance for people like me,” Cryer says. “… To avoid ignorance and bullying, I’ve had to hide the fact that I’m a troll. You have no idea how much time and money I’ve spent on electrolysis and hair dye and reconstructive surgery so I can look like this.”
Cryer also outs a few other celebs who he says are trolls — Paul Giamatti, Helen Mirren, Andy Richter (who was not pleased about it) — and closes with a messages for all the trolls who are still living “under the bridge.”
“I’m here to tell you: It gets better,” Cryer says. “Not gay better. But sort of better.”
We’re sure Sheen will have something to say about this down the line. But for now? Funny, funny stuff from the only actor to win an Emmy for “Two and a Half Men.” Take a look:
