Angus T. Jones 'apologises' for TAAHM remarks

Angus T. Jones

Angus T. Jones didn't mean to "disrespect" the cast and crew of Two and a Half Men in his bizarre rant.

On Monday the 19-year-old actor released a YouTube video in which he begged people to stop watching the programme - branding it "filth". The religious-themed excerpt lasts for 14 minutes and sees Angus list reasons why people should not tune in.

He now regrets his actions.

"[Creator] Chuck Lorre, [producer] 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," he revealed in a statement.

"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 apologise 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."

Angus is paid a reported $350,000 for each episode of the series, which he has appeared on since it began in 2003.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
