John Stamos Reveals Why He Was ‘Angry’ That The Olsen Twins Didn’t Return To Fuller House

John Stamos admitted why he was furious after Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen decided not to reprise their roles in “Fuller House.

During an appearance on a recent episode of “And that’s what you really missedOn the Full House podcast, the actor talked about his “angry” reaction after the twins didn’t want to reunite with their former co-stars for the Netflix reboot of the beloved ’90s sitcom.

“The twins moved to New York. And I have to tell you that this is one of the few good things coming from Bob. [Saget’s death]Well… Mary-Kate and Ashley, we didn’t see much of them. I mean, we kept in touch for a bit, but Bob really talked. And they were so wonderful,” Stamos said.

The ‘You’ star continued, “You hear rumors like, ‘Oh, they hated their childhood, or they hated being on the show, or whatever.’ He then revealed how he reunited with the childhood actors after his co-star Bob Saget said.

Saget, 65 years old, died of a head injury in January 2022. He played Danny Tanner on Full House, which ran for eight seasons from 1987 to 1995.

Over 20 years later, Sage reprized his role as the widowed father of three girls in a five-season sequel that saw the return of all of the original stars except the Olsen twins.

“When I was doing Fuller House, they didn’t want to come back. And I was angry for a minute,” Stamos, who played Jesse Katsopolis, Mary-Kate’s uncle and Ashley Michelle Tanner’s character, shared. “And it came out.

Calling Saget a “tool” in keeping the cast in touch after the original series ended, Stamos said the comedian’s death led to a re-establishment of his relationship with the Olsens after they met and spoke candidly about the show.

“But they were like, ‘We loved our childhood.’ We enjoyed being with you. We miss Bob. They came to my house. They brought pork chop and sage. I don’t know why, but thanks? It was a frozen pork chop so it was really good. So we kept very close, ”the presenter recalled.

Last month, Stamos opened up about another tense moment for the trio during the early days of filming for ABC’s Full House. he briefly fired the twins for crying too much on set when they were only 11 months old.

“I said, ‘This won’t work, guys,’ and I shouted it 10 times. I said, “Get rid of them, I can’t work like this,” the 59-year-old man said on “Good guyspodcast.

Stamos’ demand led to the Olsen twins being temporarily replaced with “two red-haired kids” whom the former soap opera star described as “terrible”.

“It had nothing to do with [them being] redheads, but they weren’t attractive,” Stamos said, before sharing that the Olsens were rehired “after only a few days.”
