In the photo, which can be seen here, Jones sports a much slimmer figure and a big, bushy beard. If he is trying to distance himself from his famous television character, then he’s doing a pretty good job.
“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,” a source tells 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.”
Another insider thinks Jones’ new look could be a sign of bad times ahead. “He seems to be suffering some kind of breakdown,” the friend says. “He appears in denial about the whole saga. And he just doesn’t want to look like Jake anymore.”
Jones’ final “Two and a Half Men” episode was on May 9, 2013. His departure came after he did an interview where he begged fans to stop watching the show.
