In a recent interview on the “Good Guys” podcast, actor John Stamos revealed a little-known fact about his time on the hit ’90s sitcom “Full House.” He admitted that he once got co-stars Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen fired from the show due to their constant crying as 11-month-old babies.
During the podcast, Stamos was asked by co-host Josh Peck if he had ever tried to get the Olsen twins fired from the show. Stamos replied, “Yeah, I did. It was only a few days, and I said, ‘Bring the Olsen’s back! These kids are terrible.'”
Despite their young age at the time, Stamos explained that the crew members kept swapping Mary-Kate and Ashley while filming a particular scene due to their constant crying. The actor revealed that he couldn’t handle the heat from the Olsen twins and made the decision to get them fired temporarily.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen played the role of Michelle Tanner, the youngest daughter in “Full House.” The beloved sitcom aired for eight seasons from 1987 to 1995 and was rebooted by Netflix in 2016, ending in 2020 after five seasons.
Stamos played Uncle Jesse Katsopolis on the show and starred alongside the late Bob Saget, who played Danny Tanner. Saget passed away unexpectedly in January 2022 at the age of 65, leaving his co-stars and fans in mourning.
While Stamos’ confession may come as a surprise to some fans, it’s clear that the actor has a deep appreciation for his co-stars and the show’s legacy.
