It would be safe to assume that a 19-year-old who makes $350,000 per episode on a hit show would be a happy one.
Not in the case of “Two and A Half Men” star Angus T. Jones.
In fact, he has labeled the show, in which he plays Jake, as “filth” and urged fans stop watching the CBS hit.
In a new video for the Forerunner Christian Church, part of the Seventh Day Adventist movement, Jones lashes out saying he doesn’t even want to partake in it anymore.
“I’m on Two and a Half Men and I don’t want to be on it,” he says on the clips below. “Please stop watching it and filling your head with filth. People say it’s just entertainment.
“Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you’ll have a decision to make when it comes to television and especially with what you watch on television … it’s bad news.”
He continues: “If I am doing any harm, I don’t want to be here. I don’t want to be contributing to the enemy’s plan.
“You cannot be a true God-fearing person and be on a television show like that. I know I can’t. I’m not OK with what I’m learning, what the bible says and being on that television show.”
In the video, he seemingly looks uncomfortable as he laughs and admits his worried family have described his recent “awakening” to the Seventh-day Adventist movement as a “cult”.
We are also sure that his bosses at Warner Brothers are going to be less than thrilled by this out-of-nowhere outburst.
Despite Katy Perry being honored in five different categories, the highlight of the evening was the adorable Bettty White who received an ovation when she went onstage with her co-stars after they won the best comedy for their show Hot in Cleveland.
The television veteran, who is celebrating her 90th birthday, told the crowd, “I haven’t done anything.”
If only some of the younger generation of stars were this modest.
Simon Helberg has upgraded his living accommodations in a big way with the purchase of Hollywood bad boy Charlie Sheen’s Mediterranean mini-mansion.
Charlie Sheen purchased this with former wife Brooke Mueller in 2007
for $2.575 million and has had the house on the market since mid-2009.
Built in 1927, the newly-minted Helberg manor measures in at just
under 4,200-square-feet and features a restored interior with Bouquet
Canyon stone flooring, capacious living room with trestle-style
vaulted ceilings, formal dining room and a generous master suite.
Known for his role as ultra-nerd aerospace engineer Howard Wolowitz
on the CBS comedy The Big Bang Theory, Helberg is reportedly shelling
out $2.9 million for the Los Angeles, California property, located
just south of the Griffith Observatory and Mount Hollywood in the
prominent Los Feliz neighborhood.
