  • Quotes

    • Angus T. Jones: (about "Two and a Half Men") I feel really lucky to be on the show every episode and get a lot of really funny lines. What's not to like? I'm learning a lot about comedy, and everyone is just hilarious. Sometimes the hardest thing for me is not to laugh.

    • Jon Cryer: (on Angus) He's a very instinctive actor - and I think he's enjoying just being a part of the learning. In the first season, he wasn't even sure he wanted to be an actor when he grew up, and I think he's sort of come around to feeling like that's what he wants to do. And I attribute that to his admiration of me!

    • Charlie Sheen: (on Angus) He's more like a younger brother. He's so smart, He's so well-adjusted and focused, and he reminds us that we need to enjoy this. He's a real special kid. There's nothing Hollywood or affected about him. He has a regular life away from here - regular friends, a regular school and regular interests - and I think he just sees this as a job - a very unique job. We have a lot of fun.

    • Angus T. Jones: (About Jake's relationship with Charlie in Two and a Half Men) He likes him a lot, he does stuff for him. He buys Jake a lot of foods that I want and wouldn't usually get.

    • Angus T. Jones: (About Jake's relationship with his dad in Two and a Half Men) Yeah I think his dads going to get a lot cooler, hes going to get a little bit more like Uncle Charlie and Jakes going to start liking him a lot.

    • Angus T. Jones: (About Charlie Sheen and his character Charlie in Two and a Half Men) Charlie is cooler than his dad and I think he likes him a little bit better than his dad and yeah, cause his dads a little bit paranoid and stuff.

    • Angus T. Jones: (About his character Jake in Two and a Half Men) He has moved into his Uncle Charlie's house and he is teaching him a lot of new stuff like different words and stuff and like getting him a lot of treats he wasn't allowed to have with his mum.

    I am disturbed by some of the negative comments made about Angus's opinion's.

    Give the kid a break, he was a child actor, his parents set him up for that, he grew up on the show. He didn't just walk in the studio and say I want a job. Lord knows what he has been exposed to on that show through the years. So many child actors have been swallowed up in the hollywood fast lane, and unable to cope and handle success. For one reason or another he came to a crossroad in his life, where as he has reached out to religion. Becoming a true christian is far better then getting into drugs and alcohol.moreless
