What a difference a beard makes.
Former Two and a Half Men star Angus T. Jones was recently spotted in Venice, California, looking nothing like his clean-cut, on-screen persona. The 22-year-old actor sported a beard and long hair, keeping warm in a letterman jacket.
According to an eyewitness, Jones was friendly with everyone, taking selfies with his group in front of the restaurant. "He seemed to be a little uncomfortable with the attention, but was very nice," the eyewitness says. "He said he has not spoken to Charlie Sheen [who revealed he's HIV positive in November] and does not know how he is doing. "
Jones became famous for playing Jake Harper on the hit CBS show, which he first joined at 10 years old. In 2010, he became the highest paid child actor in television history at 17, earning a reported $300,000 per episode.
However, in November 2012, he bashed the show in a surprising video posted on the religious website, The Forerunner Chronicles. "If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop watching Two and a Half Men," Jones said. "I'm on Two and a Half Men and I don't want to be on it. Please stop watching it. Please stop filling your head with filth."
The comments, for which he later apologized, came during an apparent religious awakening for the actor in the Seventh-Day Adventist Church.
"I apologize 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," he said in a statement later that month. "I never intended that."
ET caught up with Two and a Half Men creator, Chuck Lorre, in January 2013 at the People's Choice Awards, when he made it clear that he had no hard feelings towards Jones.
"He's part of the show. He's part of our family; we love him," Lorre said. "[I] can't really disagree with him -- the show's kind of filthy. What he said wasn't wrong. It might have been indiscrete, but, we aspire to [create] funny filth, so what are you going to do?"
Jones left the show at the end of the 10th season, but made a cameo in the series finale. Although in March 2014, he made it clear that he stood by his thoughts on the show, calling himself "a paid hypocrite."
"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," Jones told Houston, Texas television station KHOU. “I was a paid hypocrite because I wasn’t OK with it and I was still doing it."
Of course, Jones isn't the only Two and a Half Men star finding himself in the headlines recently. Charlie Sheen, who played Jones' uncle in the sitcom, revealed that he's HIV positive in November.
When asked by Today's Matt Lauer if his infamous meltdown and firing from the hit CBS show was because of his reaction to his HIV diagnosis at the time, Sheen said, "I wish I could blame it on that. That was more of a 'roid rage. But this was -- this was -- on the heels of that, let me say, yeah."
