Without any prompting, John Stamos, who played the disgustingly handsome Uncle Jesse on Full houserecently admitted to actor Josh Peck that he got Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen temporarily fired from the series while they were just 11 months old.
Stamos recalled one of the first scenes he worked with the twins on the April 24th episode of Peck’s Good Guys podcast (via Entertainment Weekly). It didn’t go well, because, by the time the scene was done filming, he’d had enough of the twins’ incessant crying (apparently, babies aren’t allowed to cry).
“I did it. I didn’t try,” Stamos so rudely boasted to Peck about successfully getting them fired.
“[Dave Coulier] and I were changing the baby,” he continued. “We’re carrying the baby downstairs, I think I was holding on to their armpits and Dave was holding her little feet. We take her into the kitchen and hosed her down, we put a fan on her, wrapped her up in paper towels. She was screaming. Both of them, they wanted to be anywhere else but there, and so did I. They were 11 months old, and God bless them. And they kept switching.”
As if it couldn’t get any worse, Stamos doubled down on his dickishness by shaming the appearance of the twins who replaced the Olsens during their temporary absence. They were wide-eyed and red-headed, leading to Stamos regretting his impulsive decision.
“I’m sure their parents loved them and thought they were attractive,” he joked, before adding: “It had nothing to do with [them being] red-headed, but they weren’t attractive.”
“I said, ‘Bring the Olsens back, these kids are terrible!’” he finished. “It was a day or something, we tried the other kids, it didn’t work.”
