Muniz appeared on the Australian edition of ‘I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here’, where he dropped a bombshell on the team behind ‘Malcom In The Middle’, including the only time he left the set.

“There were two episodes that I’m not in. I left the set,” he revealed, according to News.AU before saying “certain people” created a toxic environment on the sitcom’s set, leading the cast and crew to fear them.

“Everyone was too afraid to stand up when certain people were controlling, rude or disrespectful. Like they were walking on pins and needles,” she said. “I was so mortified to see people afraid to defend themselves, that I thought, ‘Say something.'”

He continued: “I didn’t care if they told me I would never come back, because to me it was worth it. He helped make the program based on me.”

Last week, the former child star opened up about her days in Hollywood, admitting that she “never felt like I fully fit into the world of Hollywood, even though I was in the world.”

“I was nominated for the Emmys and the Golden Globes, I was going to all this, I was there and I thought, how am I here?” he said AU News.

He added: “I hated Los Angeles, so I stayed in my own little world, my own little bubble. And moving to Arizona, I did it on a whim, and I immediately realized that I started looking up. I started to “I enjoyed looking at trees and birds in the sky. Going to the grocery store was fun. You don’t get that in Los Angeles. It’s a miserable experience.”

Last year, Muñiz dropped the bombshell that he never took drugs and never took a sip of alcohol.

“There are times when I think about the things I had to do as a child actor or… my early years as an adult,” he told Mayim Bialik on her podcast, “and having stepped away from the entertainment world, from “That business, at the height of my career, right when it ended (‘Malcom in the Middle’)… It allowed me to have a greater appreciation for life in general.”

He went on to say, “I think little things, as silly as they may seem, like moving to Scottsdale in 2008, saved my life. I’m 38 years old. I’ve still never had a sip of alcohol. I’ve never done drugs. I have never done anything. So I don’t mean in that sense… like, ‘Oh, I’m going to go crazy,’ like a lot of child actors do. I mean, I realized when “I moved (out of Hollywood), that I started looking up… This is so cheesy… but it’s like I looked at the sky. I looked at the trees.”

Muniz played the title character of ‘Malcolm in the Middle’ for seven seasons alongside Amanda Bynes.
