Fans are defending Angus Turner Jones's new look after he was spotted in Los Angeles for the first time in a year.

In pictures obtained by The New York Post, the 29-year-old actor had a rare sighting in a Californian neighborhood on Sunday (May 21).

The now-bearded former star - who played Jake Harper in the CBS sitcom Two and a Half Men - donned an oversized grey T-shirt and dark grey shorts.

Jones was walking around barefoot and completed his new look with a glasses and backward red baseball cap that covered his head.

Check out the pictures below:

Upon seeing the pictures, many users have taken to social media to defend Jones against criticism. One user wrote: "Leave him alone. As much as I loved the show, he has stated he just wants to be left alone. He's happy and living his life. He'll be getting royalty checks for the rest of his life."

Another person remarked: "'First sighting in a year' really? We're dogging former child stars as if they're some [elusive] endangered creature that scientists can't determine are still around or not? Leave him alone."

A third commented: "He has found something at peace in his life. His earnings were not squandered down to griping by his handlers. He is able to live peacefully and no negative stories published about him. Let him live at peace."

And, a fourth person said: "Leave him alone ppl grow and change [their] appearance. Couldn't imagine working at such a young age."

Jones rose to fame in the highly successful sitcom, which also starred Charlie Sheen as Charlie Harper and Jon Cryer as Alan Harper.

However, in 2012, he made headlines after he abruptly announced his exit from the popular show in a 10-minute testimonial, citing that he had found God and urged viewers to stop watching.

"If you watch Two and a Half Men, please stop watching Two and a Half Men," he told people in a YouTube video posted by the Christian group Forerunner Chronicles.

"I’m on Two and a Half Men, and I don’t want to be on it. Please stop watching it and filling your head with filth. People say it’s just entertainment…" he continued.

Jones added: "Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you’ll have a decision to make when it comes to television, especially with what you watch."

The former child star has stuck to his decision and hasn’t acted in anything since he left the show. He instead enrolled at the University of Colorado.

However, two years after his departure, he spoke out at the Seventh-Day Adventist Church World Harvest Outreach and doubled down on his choice to leave the series.

He thought the show "was making light of topics in our world that are really problems for a lot of people," adding that he "was a paid hypocrite because I wasn’t OK with it but I was still doing it," per Page Six.
