Not 24 hours after releasing a bizarre 14-minute video message urging viewers to stop watching Two and a Half Men, star Angus T. Jones released an official "apology" statement. The 19-year-old actor seems to be concerned about the bad impression he's set with the people he works with on the show.

In his statement, Angus expresses deep appreciation for the opportunity he was given (Hello, $350,000 an episode!), "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." Angus goes on to praise the cast and crew as "an extension of [his] family" that has had a lot of positive impact on his life. 

He closes his statement with an apology (of sorts) that implies that there was some other more positive way to interpret his harsh video, "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. I never intended that."

Below is Angus's statement in full: 

"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 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. I never intended that."

It's still unclear as to whether he'll be asked to leave the show or make the choice to exit, but due to the show's filming schedule he won't need to return to set (or face his co-stars) until 2013
