John Stamos Admits He Was 'Disappointed' the Olsen Twins Didn't Return for 'Fuller House'

John Stamos is talking the Olsen twins.

On Thursday (April 15), the 57-year-old actor appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen and during the interview, John was asked by a fan if he was surprised Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen decided not to return for Fuller House.

“We were disappointed, but we understood,” John admitted.

The 34-year-old actresses turned fashion designers rose to fame playing Michelle Tanner on the original Full House back in the ’90s.

When Netflix announced that they were doing Fuller House, Mary-Kate and Ashley were the only two original stars that decided not to come back, as they have put acting behind them to focus on their extremely successful fashion line The Row.

Over the course of the show’s five seasons, the Fuller House cast often poked fun at the Olsen twins’ decision not to come back.

“I remember [costar Lori Loughlin] saying to me, ‘They won like 2 or 3 CFDA Awards, that’s like winning 2 or 3 Oscars. If you won 3 Oscars, would you come back and do this?’ I was like, ‘Eh, maybe not!’” John added.

During another recent interview, John explained how sobriety helped him to decide to settle down and start a family.
