Jon Cryer on embracing the effeminate heterosexual dork within
No, Duckie didn't get the girl — but that hasn't stopped Jon Cryer from venturing forth in the world as a self-described "effeminate heterosexual dork". The former Pretty in Pink star joins Shad to discuss his new memoir — So That Happened — and why we celebrate "bad boys" and stigmatize "good guys".
Cryer, who starred opposite Charlie Sheen in Two and a Half Men, also opens up about his friend and co-worker's very public meltdown, the events that gave him some "much needed perspective", and how he felt when test audiences said Duckie wasn't worthy of Molly Ringwald's character in Pretty in Pink.
Speaking of Duckie ...
"The great thing about Duckie is that he was unafraid of being himself in a social situation where he was ridiculed for it and ostracised but he just kept doing it." — Jon Cryer.
