EARLIER: Angus T Jones is "grateful for the extraordinary opportunity" to star in 'Two And A Half Men'.

The 19-year-old actor - who recently filmed a video urging people not to watch the show because it goes against his religious beliefs - released a statement to apologise to the cast and crew if he offended them.

In the statement released to gossip website TMZ, he said: "I have been the subject of much discussion, speculation and commentary over the past 24 hours.

"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, 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.

"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 also want all of the crew and cast on our show to know how much I personally care for them and appreciate their support, guidance and love over the years.

"I grew up around them and know that the time they spent with me was in many instances more than with their own families. I learned life lessons from so many of them and will never forget how much positive impact they have had on my life.

"I apologise 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 (sic)."

It is believed Angus' role on the show is safe despite the outburst in a video to promote Forerunner Christian Church which where he called 'Two And A Half Men' "filth".

BREAKING: Ashton Kutcher's 'Two And A Half Men' costar has begged viewers to stop watching the sitcom.

The 34-year-old actor's young costar Angus T Jones, who has been playing Jake Harper since the show made its debut in 2003, has encouraged fans of the hit comedy series - which previously starred troubled actor Charlie Sheen - to boycott the show and called it "filth".

In a new video to promote Forerunner Christian Church, the 19-year-old actor - who is the highest paid child actor on TV and reportedly earns $350,000 an episode - claims it completely contradicts his deep Christian values and he doesn't want to be on the show any more.

He said: "If you watch 'Two And A Half Men', please stop watching 'Two And A Half Men'. I'm on 'Two And A Half Men' and I don't want to be on it.

"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, especially with what you watch.

"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."
