Two and a Half Men Star: So Sorry


Now that the video in which Angus Jones — the moron son in the hit sitcom Two and a Half Men — blasts his television show as “filth” and tells viewers to stop watching has gone viral, it seems he’s had a change of heart. Via the Los Angeles Times:

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.

I’m just guessing here, but I think the potential loss of his $300,000 per episode salary might have had a little something to do with his change of heart. I mean, if they were willing to replace Charlie Sheen . . .
