Angus T. Jones Rumored To Be Suffering A 'Breakdown'
Angus T. Jones, who plays Jake on Two and a Half Men, was recently spotted running errands around Los Angeles with a noticeably skinnier and scruffier appearance, causing friends and family of the actor to worry about his well being.
Jones has starred on the hit CBS sitcom since he was just 9-years-old, playing the half of the two and a half men. In October of last year, Jones, who had converted to the church of the Seventh Day Adventists, went onto a YouTube channel of a related group and called Two and a Half Men “filth,” and urged the show's fans to stop watching it.
“He seems to be a shadow of himself and desperate to get away from the looks that made him a global star and very wealthy,” one of Jones' friends told the New York Daily News. “We are concerned about his health, too. Angus has lost a lot of weight over the summer and looks very skinny compared to how he looked on the show."
“He seems to be suffering some kind of breakdown," another friend told the publication. "He appears in denial about the whole saga. And he just doesn’t want to look like Jake anymore.”
Jones’ parents, Kelly and Carey Jones, are wary of their son’s relationship with the Seventh Day Adventist Church, though it’s been reported that he’s recently begun to question his involvement. The actor reportedly plans to head to college this coming fall.
Jones was let go as a lead on Two and a Half Men in June, but may return to the sitcom in some capacity in the future. Two and a Half Men's 11th season will premiere Sept. 22 starring Jon Cryer and Ashton Kutcher, who took the place of Charlie Sheen in season 9.
