Former Two And A Half Men star Angus T. Jones has attacked the sitcom again, revealing it was “difficult” for him to be part of a show that made light of “topics in our world where there are really problems for a lot of people.”
The grown-up child star upset producers and creator Chuck Lorre last year when he called the comedy “filth” and urged fans to stop watching in a video filmed for a religious group he was attached to.
Jones later apologized for his remarks.
He was then axed as a regular on the show and has yet to appear in any episodes this season.
Now, studying in Colorado, the Christian actor has taken aim at Two and a Half Men again in a new interview with Houston, Texas TV network KHOU.
Sporting a thick beard, Jones says, “I was a paid hypocrite.”
The TV interview came about as part of the star’s trip to the World Harvest Outreach Church in Houston, where he talks about his faith as a Seventh-Day Adventist.
He told a KHOU reporter that although he didn’t enjoy his final months on the show, that he feels bad for openly criticizing creator Lorre, adding, “I just totally insulted his baby and, to that degree, I am apologetic, but otherwise I don’t regret saying what I said.”
