Angus T. Jones: I Was a "Paid Hypocrite" on Two and a Half Men

by at .

Angus T. Jones has spoken out once again about Two and a Half Men.

The young actor, who trashed the sitcom as filth in November 2012, gave a radio interview on March 15 in which he opened up about his decision to leave a $300,000-per-episode paycheck.

“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," Jones told KHOU. "I was a paid hypocrite because I wasn’t OK with it and I was still doing it."

The 19-year old portrayed Jake Harper on the series for about 10 years before choosing to exit for personal and religious reasons.

Jones apologized for his previous slamming of the sitcom, saying he is grateful for having had the opportunity, but says in his latest Q&A that he has no regrets, except when it comes to creator Chuck Lorre.

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

What is next on his professional docket? Perhaps acting, it the right gig comes along.

“I really want to come into the light because I know that is where the healing is and I’ve seen God do amazing things,” Angus said. “There’s a few different productions that like do kind of Bible-based stories. Stuff like that.”

Angus visits ministries around the nation to share his story of how and why he made the transition he did and a local Houston pastor says he’s a welcome member of the congregation.
