Teenage actor Angus T. Jones has apologized to his "Two and a Half Men" colleagues for publicly trashing the hit sitcom, labeling it "one of the most significant experiences" in his life.

The 19-year-old has played Jon Cryer's onscreen son Jake Harper in the popular series since its launch in 2003 but has openly criticized the show, insisting that it's full of "filth."

Jones revealed he had become more involved in his local church -- and the more he learns about his Christian faith, the more he despises his job. In a candid video for the Forerunner Christian Church, which has been posted online, Jones even pleaded with fans to quit watching the program for their own good.

In his statement, Jones praises the executives behind the sitcom and apologized for any disrespect he may have caused them, insisting that being part of the show is a blessing. He says, "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 (creator), Peter Roth (producer) 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 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."
