It's been a strange couple of days for Angus T. Jones.
One day after a video
of the Two and a Half Men
actor calling his show "filth"
and urging viewers to stop watching went viral, Jones, 19, issued an apology.
"Without qualification, I am grateful to and have the highest regard and respect for all of the wonderful people on Two and a Half Men
whom I have worked and over the past ten years who have become an extension of my family," Jones said in a statement Tuesday night.
"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," he continues in the statement.
He adds: "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."
In his video interview on a religious website, Jones proclaims: "I'm on Two and a Half Men
and I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it … I'm not okay with what I'm learning [about] what the Bible says and being on that television show. You go all or nothing."
In Tuesday's statement, Jones thanks the cast and crew for their "support, guidance and love over the years. I grew up around them … I 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," Jones concludes. "I never intended that."
