John Stamos was not a happy camper when Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were not part of the “Fuller House” show.
Stamos discussed his feeling on a new episode of the “And That’s What You REALLY Missed” podcast. The sitcom star said he was initially “angry” when he found out the twins had passed on the “Full House” Netflix reboot.
"The twins moved to New York. And I gotta tell you, one of the only good things to come out of Bob’s [death] Well... Mary-Kate and Ashley, we didn’t see them much. I mean, we stayed in touch a little bit, but Bob really did. And they were so great. You hear rumors, 'Oh, they hated their childhood, or they hated being on the show or whatever,’” Stamos said.
“When I did ‘Fuller House’ they didn’t want to come back. And I was angry for a minute,” he continued. “And that got out.”
Stamos revealed the late Bob Saget was the cog in keeping the original cast together. His untimely passing eventually brought Stamos and the Olsen’s together to discuss the show.
“But they were, like, 'We loved our childhood. We loved being with you. We miss Bob.' They came over to my house. They brought a pork chop and sage. I don’t know why, but thank you? It was a frozen pork chop, so that was really nice. So we stayed very close,” he said.
Stamos also recently discussed the Olsen twins saying he tried to get them fired from the original show when they were just toddlers.
During one of “Full House”’s first few episodes the tiny actors couldn’t handle a scene where they were being bathed in a sink and Stamos thought they weren’t cut out for the small screen. He initially told producers to “get rid of them.”
Eventually, him and the rest of the cast wanted them back after their replacements were much worse.
