“He and I famously did not get along when we were shooting Pretty in Pink,‘” Cryer told “The View’s” co-hosts Friday morning after host Sara Haines asked him about the feud. “It was because there was tension. Interestingly, I saw him backstage, and we had a lovely time; we had a great talk.”

McCarthy and Cryer starred opposite Molly Ringwald in the 1986 cult classic John Hughes film.

John Cryer learned Andrew McCarthy was going through ‘some tough stuff’ while filming ‘Pretty in Pink’s Jon Cryer’

Cryer was on “The View” to promote his new show, “Extended Family,” on Friday morning. Previously, more than a decade ago, Cryer and McCarthy each appeared on an episode of “The View” in 2012 to promote respective projects during their feud. ‘Pretty in Pink’s Jon Cryer learned Andrew McCarthy was going through ‘some tough stuff’ while filming ‘Pretty in Pink’

Cryer said Friday that he better understood the tension between him and McCarthy after reading the latter’s “terrific” 2021 memoir “Brat,” which chronicled his time as a member of the “Brat Pack.”

“He was already struggling with alcoholism back when we were shooting that movie. I’d projected all this stuff on him at the time, I thought, ‘He’s this sullen guy that doesn’t want to talk to me.’ We’re enemies (in) the movie, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be friends,” Cryer said.

“But we just had no rapport whatsoever at the time. I found out later he was going through some tough stuff. That was such a lesson for me. It’s all about projection. You never know,” he continued. On a lighter note, Cryer joked that McCarthy still has his recognizable head of hair, which he has had since they originally shot the film in the ’80s.

While Cryer said he has reunited with McCarthy, he has no plans to get back in business with former “Two and a Half Men” co-star Charlie Sheen. Sheen, who has long struggled with addiction, was famously fired from the show in 2011 after a drug-fueled tirade against co-creator Chuck Lorre. (Pretty in Pink’s Jon Cryer)

“I love him, I wish him the best,” Cryer said. “He should live in good health for the rest of his life, but I don’t know if I want to get in business with him for any length in time.” He added that he would be open to considering a one-off collaboration. Almost three decades after he starred in the Pretty in Pink’s Jon Cryer is still recognized for the role that catapulted him to stardom.

In the 1986 teen classic, Cryer famously played Duckie, the quirky high school classmate of Andie (Molly Ringwald), who falls for the dreamy rich guy Blane (Andrew McCarthy). While Andie and Blane ultimately end up together by the film’s end, Duckie left an indelible impression of his own as a lovable outsider who provided the film’s most memorable moment: a lip-synced dance to Otis Redding’s “Try a Little Tenderness.”

“Duckie was very aspirational for me, because he was the guy I wish I was,” says Cryer, who currently stars in the new NBC sitcom Extended Family. Being a self-proclaimed “theater dork” at the Bronx High School of Science made Cryer, 58, realize he was, what he describes as a “funny person.” “I was actually decently good at this being on stage thing,” he explains. “But I never had the confidence I think that Duckie had, and I wish I did, because he really lived his life out loud in a way I could only aspire to.”

Cryer admits he “felt like an outsider” himself during high school. Besides falling in love with one girl during his senior year in high school — “that didn’t end up working out,” he says — he didn’t date much during that time. (Pretty in Pink’s Jon Cryer)

“I think that really is a universal experience for most people,” he continues. “I don’t think most people go through high school thinking, ‘I was the she–. Everybody really dug me in high school.’ But Duckie was … a bit of a conglomeration of several of my friends growing up. I had a friend named Artie who had this ridiculous pompadour. I stole some of the sayings of my friend David, who would go, ‘Do I offend?’ And so he was a great way to represent for my peer group.”

While Cryer has since gone on to other successful projects, including the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men, which ran from 2003 to 2015 and earned him two Emmy Awards, it’s the role of Duckie that people return to time and again. (Pretty in Pink’s Jon Cryer)
