Actor Angus T. Jones has just released a statement to address his behavior in a recently released video of him slamming his show “Two and a Half Men.”
In the video, made as a testimonial for Forerunner Christian Church, Jones appears with his spiritual advisor and proclaims that his show is “filth” and out of line with his deep Christian faith. He urges fans to stop watching the show and states that he does not want to be on it.
Many people were baffled that Jones would bash the show he has worked on for the last ten years and has made him a very rich man. He earns more than $300,000 per episode. Others were pleased that he took a stand for what he believes in.
Jones’ co-star Charlie Sheen, no stranger to outrageous behavior himself, characterized Jones’ behavior as cult-like, telling People.com, “With Angus’s Hale-Bopp-like meltdown, it is radically clear to me that the show is cursed.”
It’s interesting to note that in his statement, Jones does not apologize for what he said on the video; he only apologizes if what he said makes him sound disrespectful and ungrateful.
No word on if he plans to leave “Two and a Half Men” or keep working on a show he clearly does not want to be on.
Here’s Jones’ statement in full:
“I have been the subject of much discussion, speculation and commentary over the past 24 hours.
While I cannot address everything that has been said or right every misstatement or misunderstanding, there is one thing I want to make clear. Without qualification, I am grateful to and have the highest regard and respect for all of the wonderful people on Two and Half Men with whom I have worked and over the past ten years who have become an extension of my family.
Chuck Lorre, Peter Roth and many others at Warner Bros. and CBS are responsible for what has been one of the most significant experiences in my life to date. I thank them for the opportunity they have given and continue to give me and the help and guidance I have and expect to continue to receive from them.
I also want all of the crew and cast on our show to know how much I personally care for them and appreciate their support, guidance and love over the years. I grew up around them and know that the time they spent with me was in many instances more than with their own families. I learned life lessons from so many of them and will never forget how much positive impact they have had on my life.
I apologize if my remarks reflect me showing indifference to and disrespect of my colleagues and a lack of appreciation of the extraordinary opportunity of which I have been blessed. I never intended that.”
Do you think Jones will leave “Two and a Half Men?”
