Jon Cryer and Andrew McCarthy, known for their roles in "Pretty in Pink," resolved their long-standing feud on 'The View.'
Cryer shared the reconciliation during an appearance on the daytime talk show, attributing their initial tension to McCarthy's struggles with alcoholism during the filming of the 1986 cult classic.
The actors, who starred alongside Molly Ringwald in the John Hughes film, had a strained relationship during the movie's production.
Cryer, promoting his new show "Extended Family," revealed that reading McCarthy's 2021 memoir, "Brat," provided him with a better understanding of the underlying issues.
McCarthy's book detailed his time as a member of the "Brat Pack" and shed light on his personal struggles, including alcoholism.
Cryer acknowledged the impact of projection, realizing that his assumptions about McCarthy's demeanor were unfounded.
Despite the reconciliation, Cryer expressed no intention of collaborating with former "Two and a Half Men" co-star Charlie Sheen for an extended period, citing concerns about Sheen's history of addiction.
Cryer humorously noted that McCarthy still maintains his distinctive head of hair, a characteristic from their time shooting the film in the '80s.
