He was one of the highest paid teen actors on television but Angus T. Jones would rather preach than collect a six-million-dollar salary from “Two and a Half Men.”
In a new interview, the 20-year-old bearded Seventh Day Adventist explained his issues with his character on the hit CBS sitcom.
“[It turned out] I was making light of topics in our world where there are really problems for a lot of people,” he shared.
Furthermore, Jones notes there was an increasing disparity between his actions and his beliefs. “I was a paid hypocrite because I wasn’t OK with it and I was still doing it.”
And though he doesn’t regret his decision to leave the show, Angus regrets the way he slammed Chuck Lorre’s creation. “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.”
