Former ‘Two and a Half Men’ star Angus T Jones says he was a ‘paid hypocrite’

In 2012 Two and a Half Men star Angus T Jones made headlines when he came out about his devout faith in Jesus Christ and bashed the very show he was a part of. Now Jones is speaking about his faith and what’s next for him. 

Angus T Jones as Jake Two and a Half Men photoIn an interview with Houston’s KHOU-TV, Jones expounded upon his career and the very public comments he made about Two and a Half Men that landed him in the spotlight and eventually off of the show.

“It was difficult for me to be on the show and be part of something that was making light of topics in our world where there are really problems for a lot of people,” said Jones. “I was a paid hypocrite because I wasn’t OK with it and I was still doing it.”

Jones left his role as Jake after nearly 10 years when his contract expired.

He admits he feels guilty for openly criticizing the show and creator Chuck Lorre.

“That’s his like baby and I just totally insulted his baby and to that degree I am apologetic but otherwise I don’t regret saying what I said,” said Jones.

These days he’s going to school in Colorado, growing a beard and spending time with the World Harvest Outreach Church in Houston.
