Charlie Sheen has been praised by his former Two and a Half Men co-star Holland Taylor.

Charlie Sheen has been praised as likeable and smart.

While the Anger Management actor has a reputation as a hellraiser thanks to his past which has included hiring prostitutes and taking drugs, his former Two and a Half Men co-star Holland Taylor has nothing but praise for the 47-year-old star.

She told Parade magazine, "Anybody who's spent time with Charlie likes him. He's as smart a person as you'll ever find."

Charlie was memorably fired from Two and a Half Men over his erratic antics, which included partying with prostitutes and blasting the show's creator, Chuck Lorre, but Holland (70) ? who plays Evelyn Harper, matriarch of the Harper family ? believes Charlie's upbringing and early fame is responsible for his meltdown.

She explained, "He grew up with a movie star father [Martin Sheen] who was gallivanting around the world. [Today] Martin is a big AA [Alcoholics Anonymous] person and very public about it. But back in the day, Martin was a young, crazy, brilliant talent ? always gone, sometimes bringing his kids along."

"It was just a madhouse way [for Charlie] to grow up. And then Charlie himself was a teenage movie star with hundreds of thousands of dollars in his pocket at any given moment. It sounds great to a lot of people, but it's not that easy to mature and to have a regular life."
