Former child star of the CBS comedy ‘Two and a Half Men’ Angus T. Jones, said during his interview on Houston’s KHOU television station, that he was a “paid hypocrite” on the CBS comedy.
Jones was one of the highest paid child actors in Hollywood today, making up to $300,000 per episode. He played Charlie Sheen’s young nephew Jake Harper, and admitted that “he went along with the series even though it didn’t fit with his Christian beliefs.”
According to wonderwallmsn.com in a report on March 17, Jones stated, “It was making light of topics in our world that are really problems for a lot of people and I was a paid hypocrite, because I wasn’t OK with it, but I was still doing it.”
Jones admits that he has no “ill will” towards producer Chuck Lorre or the show, and that he feels bad for criticizing the show like he did saying, “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.”
Today Jones is a student in Colorado, and works with the World Harvest Outreach Church in Houston. He is an “outspoken believer of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, and he “doesn’t appear to be invested in material goods.”
When asked if he would ever act again he said there are “a few different productions that do Bible-based stories” he would consider, but he “isn’t particularly interested in returning to acting.”
Jones continued, “I really want to be able to come into the light because I know that’s where genuine healing is, and I’ve just seen God do amazing things.”
