John Stamos He recounted his early concerns about playing Uncle Jesse in “Full House” after young star Jodie Sweetin stole the show during a table reading so much that he “hated” the show.

“We set up a table to read about, and I was the star. I was walking out of ‘General Hospital,’ and all the moms were like (nodding at him),” Stamos said during an episode of “hot. We sit down and start reading. Jodie Sweetin who plays Stephanie reads her lines and people are dying laughing I mean screaming. I was like, ‘What’s going on here?'”

“I hated this show at first.”

Stamos said that “Full House” was initially pitched to him as a different kind of sitcom, with fewer actors and more focus on his character, similar to contemporary shows like “Bosom Buddies,” the 1980s sitcom starring Tom Hanks.

Stamos recalled his initial reaction to “Full House” while on the Hot Ones show.

However, during the casting, Stamos begins to realize that the show is shaping up to be something much more than he was prescribed.

“While we were doing it, I was like, ‘They spend a lot of time choosing these kids who are going to be in the background,'” Stamos recalls laughing.

His concerns grew during the initial table read, as Sweetin’s personality began to outpace his own.

“I was slumping in my seat, you couldn’t even hear my lines, they were laughing so hard at it.”

Stamos then recalled leaving the table and immediately calling his agent to say “Get me out of this show!”

“I fought that for a long time.” “And then finally I said, ‘What I’m doing, it’s a beautiful show,'” Stamos said ruefully. “We built it with sweetness and kindness.”

Stamos had similar problems with his “Full House” costumes, and at one point even tried to replace the Olsen twins when they were just 11 months old.

The conflict arose during the filming of a now-iconic scene, in which Stamos’ character, He tries to take care of Michelle Tanner – A role shared by the twins – when their father is away.

After a short stint with two understudies, Stamos realized his mistake and told a producer, “Bring back the Olsens! Those kids are terrible.”

So after eight years as Uncle Jesse on Full House and five years producing and starring in the spin-off “Fuller House,” Stamos has definitely changed his mind about the cast.

“There was no central character on this show, the central character was love,” said Stamos. “We were the best representation of a loving family, not an ordinary family. The new normal is now an unconventional family.”
