Angus T. Jones Slams Two and a Half Men Again: I Was “Paid Hypocrite” (VIDEO)
Angus T. Jones, the former “Two and a Half Men” star whose role on the show shrunk after he blasted it as “filth” in an infamous 2012 Christian testimonial video, says in a new interview that he was a “paid hypocrite” and does not regret leaving Hollywood.
The actor, now sporting a long beard, has taken his Christian faith more seriously in recent years, and during a recent visit to Houston on behalf of church outreach, Jones explained his decision to blast “Two and a Half Men.”
“It was difficult for me… to be part of something that was making light of topics in our world that are really problems for a lot of people,” he told CBS affiliate KHOU. Jones added, “I was a paid hypocrite because I wasn’t OK with it, but I was still doing it.”
He said he’s somewhat remorseful about openly bashing the show because it was like creator Chuck Lorre’s “baby.” “I totally insulted his baby, and to that degree I am apologetic,” explained Jones. “But otherwise, I don’t regret saying what I said.” The former child star had much more to share.
