Former â€œTwo and a Half Menâ€ star Angus T. Jones has addressed his former show once again, saying that he was â€œa paid hypocriteâ€ for the CBS comedy.
During an interview with Houston television station KHOU, Jones â€” who played Jake Harper on the series â€” took himself to task, admitting that he went along with the series even though it didn’t fit with his Christian beliefs.

â€œ[The show] 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,â€ Jones said.
Though Jones is now a student in Colorado and recently spent time with Houston’s World Harvest Outreach Church, the 20-year-old added that he would consider acting again, if the gig was in alignment with his religious convictions.
â€œThere’s a few different productions that do kind of Bible-based stories and stuff like that,â€ Jones noted.

Jones parted ways with â€œTwo and a Half Menâ€ last year after blasting the series, calling it â€œfilthyâ€ and imploring viewers not to watch it.
â€œIf you watch â€˜Two and a Half Men,â€™ please stop watching â€˜Two and a Half Men,’â€ Jones said in a video published online. â€œI’m on â€˜Two and a Half Men,â€™ and I don’t want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth. Please.â€
Jones quickly issued an apology for his comments, saying in a statement, â€œI 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.â€
