It has been about a year since Angus T. Jones left the show Two and a Half Men, after playing the character Jake for nearly 10 years.
His leaving was controversial. In an interview he blasted the sitcom and asking people to stop watching it.
Jones claimed he wasn’t living the life he wanted as a Christian. He found himself rediscovering his faith and that was making it difficult to play his role in the hit show.
“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,” said Jones. “I was a paid hypocrite because I wasn’t OK with it and I was still doing it.”
So he left the show after his contract ended. But in hindsight he says, he could’ve approached it differently. He admits he feels guilty for openly criticizing the show and creator Chuck Lorre.
“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,” said Jones.
These days he’s going to school in Colorado, growing a beard and spending time with the World Harvest Outreach Church in Houston.
Saturday, he told his story to parishioners about how he found God. He’s become a close follower of the Seventh-day Adventist Church.
