John Stamos, known for his role as Jesse Katsopolis in Full House, recently revealed a surprising fact about his relationship with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who played the role of Michelle Tanner on the show. In a TV movie titled The Unauthorized Full House Story, it was portrayed that Stamos had tried to have the Olsen twins fired from the show.
According to the movie, Stamos, played by Justin Gaston, convinced producers to let go of the twins, as he felt they were not a good fit for the role. While this may seem unbelievable to fans who have seen Stamos express fondness for the Olsen twins in the past, he confirmed that the incident actually took place in real life.
In an interview, Stamos explained that the Olsen twins used to cry a lot during filming, which made it challenging to get the shots they needed. Frustrated by the situation, he gestured to the producers to replace them. However, it didn’t take long for everyone to realize that the Olsen twins were perfect for the role of Michelle Tanner.
Stamos later clarified that the decision to bring the twins back was made after the producers experimented with other sets of twins, but none of them worked out. In the end, it was clear that Mary-Kate and Ashley were the right choice.
Despite the initial difficulties, Stamos and the Olsen twins developed a good relationship over the years. This is evident from the throwback photos they have shared on Instagram, showcasing their bond. In fact, Stamos spoke highly of the twins when they reconnected after the unfortunate passing of their co-star, Bob Saget.
During an Instagram live session, Stamos revealed that they hadn’t been in touch with the Olsen twins for many years, but their reunion was filled with love and kindness. It was evident that they missed each other and cherished the time they had spent together on Full House.
Ultimately, while there may have been some challenges behind the scenes, the Olsen twins’ portrayal of Michelle Tanner was integral to the success of Full House. Their performances left a lasting impact on the show and continue to be remembered by fans worldwide.
In conclusion, despite the initial attempt to have them fired, Stamos and the Olsen twins have maintained a positive relationship. Their shared experiences on Full House will forever be a significant part of their lives and the show’s legacy.
