March 18 (UPI) -- If you were wondering what Angus T. Jones has been up to since his dramatic departure from Two and a Half Men, the 20-year-old college student has resurfaced in Houston sporting a massive beard and speaking at the city's World Harvest Outreach Church.

KHOU sat down with Jones, who attends school in Colorado, to discuss his Christian faith and his feelings about the show that made him a star.

"It was difficult for me to be on the show and be part of something that was making light of topics in our world where there are really problems for a lot of people and I was a paid hypocrite because I wasn't OK with it but I was still doing it," Jones told KHOU.

In 2012, Jones appeared in a Christian video making disparaging comments about Two and a Half Men, calling it "filth" and asking people not to watch it.

Jones said he doesn't regret leaving the show, but he does feel bad about criticizing work that was so important to Two and a Half Men creator Chuck Lorre.

“That’s his like baby and I just totally insulted his baby and to that degree I am apologetic but otherwise I don’t regret saying what I said,” he said.
