Full House Costars John Stamos, Bob Saget and Candace Cameron Bure Reunite, Reminisce About Show
Back together again! Full House costars John Stamos, Bob Saget and Candace Cameron Bure reunited at the Starlight Awards at L.A.'s Skirball Cultural Center on Wednesday, Sept. 25. The '90s TV stars posed for a photo together on the red carpet and reminisced with Us Weekly about starring on the beloved ABC sitcom.
"There was actually a lot of love, that's why the show's a hit," Saget, 57, told Us. "It was a nicely written kid show for 12-year-old kids, mostly girl friendly. Any cast that does well now is because there's stuff going on that's not in the lines where you can see there's a spark going on with them, and that's with the love of that show. This was a kid show and a family show so we all genuinely have affection, a love for each other."
"It is a part of culture and it's not going away," the actor added. "Little kids are watching it now like it just started, so it's really quite funny. The biggest compliment I get, me especially because I'm the oldest, is, 'You look the same!' I'm like, 'No I don't, dude, I'm all older and puffy,' but they're like, 'No, no.'
Fans of the show also still refer to Saget as his character name, Danny Tanner.
"It's like being in a Big Bird suit," the stand-up comedian explained, "but it's an honor having done a show that so many people love."
Stamos, 50, told Us that the same thing happens to him, with fans calling him Uncle Jesse -- but he doesn't mind it a bit. "I've done so much work since then, but it just doesn't ever go away. I never tried to run from it, but I've really embraced it the last 10 years," he said. "I'm proud of it and then main thing is that I really feel that Full House helped a lot with Starlight and we helped a lot of kids through Full House through the Uncle Jesse thing to make a lot of kids happy," Stamos added of the charity, which helps families with hospitalized children, at the event Wednesday. "I could be called worse, right?"
The Glee guest star also still gets a lot of attention for being a hot eligible bachelor. Cameron Bure, 37, who played D.J. Tanner on Full House, told Us that she's hoping he gets taken off the market soon. "I can't think of a name," she said when asked who'd she'd love to see him with. "Someone who just makes him happy. He's such a great guy!"
Stamos, however, who was previously married to Rebecca Romijn from 1998 to 2005, isn't so sure he wants to settle down. When asked if he is going to be an ultimate bachelor and the new George Clooney, Stamos told Us it's a possibility.
"I'm the old George Clooney! George is only one year older than me, I think," he said of the 52-year-old actor. "I always used to look at George and go, 'Aww man, I don't know about that life, I'd like to settle down,' but now I'm pretty happy being a bachelor so . . . I can just sort of walk in my own shoes, but I don't know."
