The teen actor in the CBS comedy "Two and Half Men" is now apologizing for calling the show "filth" and telling people not to watch.
The sitcom is known for its raunchy humor and sexually explicit dialog. Nineteen year-old Angus T. Jones has played the character "Jake" since he was 10 years old.
In a video testimony with a Seventh Day Adventist radio broadcast, Jones said he had a spiritual awakening and that he no longer wanted to be on the show.
"Please stop watching 'Two and a Half Men.' I'm on 'Two and a Half Men' and I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it," he says in the video. "Please stop filling your head with filth."
"You cannot be a true, God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can't," he says. "I'm not okay with what I'm learning, what the Bible says and being on that television show."
But in a statement Tuesday, Jones said he's "sorry if his remarks reflected indifference to and disrespect to his colleagues and a lack of appreciation of a great opportunity."
Jones attends a Seventh-Day Adventist church in the San Fernando Valley.
Can a 30-minute sitcom really have that much impact on a person? Dr. Linda Mintle, family therapist and author, explains that and more.
