John Stamos was initially upset that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen weren’t returning to the Fuller House. However, the 59-year-old improved his relationship with the former child stars after the death of Bob Saget.
What happened between John Stamos and the Olsen Twins?
During an appearance on the And this is the podcast you REALLY missed (above People) Stamos admitted he was upset that the twin actors didn’t want to be a part of the Netflix reboot. Stamos notes that they didn’t see the actors often and he wasn’t happy when they passed away after returning to the show.
“The twins moved to New York. And I have to tell you, one of the few good things that has come out of Bob’s (death). Well…Mary-Kate and Ashley, we didn’t see them much,” Stamos said. “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.” When I did Fuller House, they didn’t want to come back. And I was angry for a minute, and that’s what came out.”
But after the shocking death of Saget — whom Stamos credits with being “very instrumental” in helping hold the cast together over the years — Stamos said he and the Olsen sisters eventually reconciled over a chat at his home.
“But they said, ‘We loved our childhood.’ We enjoyed being with you. We miss Bob.’ They came to my house,” Stamos said. “They brought pork chop and sage. I don’t know why but thanks? It was a frozen pork chop that was really tasty. So we stayed very close.”
