NEW YORK (AP) — Teenage actor Angus T. Jones of the comedy "Two and a Half Men" is apologizing for a series of interviews attacking his own show, at one point calling it "filth."

Jones issued a statement Tuesday saying he's sorry if his remarks reflected indifference to and disrespect of his colleagues and a lack of appreciation of his opportunities.

The 19-year-old star plays the son of actor Jon Cryer in the comedy, which once starred Charlie Sheen before he was kicked off the show for drug use. Jones has been giving a series of interviews detailing his religious awakening and distancing himself from his work.
