Angus T. Jones: ‘I was a paid hypocrite on Two and A Half Men’


In an interview with Houston’s KHOU TV station, Angus T. Jones has attacked Two and a Half Men again.

The former child-actor, who used to play Jake Harper on the show, said he was “a paid hypocrite” and explained why it had been so difficult for him to be part of the sitcom.

He said: “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. I was a paid hypocrite because I wasn’t OK with it and I was still doing it.”

However, Jones, who has joined the Seventh-Day Adventist church, did say he could have been less harsh with his earlier remarks about the show since it was so important to its creator, Chuck Lorre.


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

In November 2012, Angus appeared in a YouTube video posted by Alabama-based church Forerunner Chronicles, where he implored viewers to not watch Two and a Half Men and to “stop filling your head with filth.” He later apologized saying he was grateful for the opportunity to be on the show.

    Adult and reasonable people understand that most of the reality shows on TV are hypocrite. People just want to see other people having problems; romance and coping with the interesting situation, nit just watch other’s boring life. That is why there is no way without acting and especially played situation for the viewers entertainment. In my opinion watching this is a simple waste of time and energy.
