During the interview, she admitted she “was a mess” for most of the lockdown.

“I was not a fully functioning person,” she continued.

“I lost like 37 lbs. during [quarantine], because I’m a stress starver, and not in a good way. I just stopped eating. I couldn’t keep food down,” she revealed.

“I have severe anxiety and depression anyway, so it really didn’t do any favors for my mental health. I really struggled with it, and for me it was a time of feeling really out of control.”

She also opened up about mental health for the rest of the world.

“I can only imagine, as semi-smooth sailing it was for us, what other people went through. I think that collective trauma and pain has really affected us, and is really going to affect everyone’s mental health in ways that we haven’t seen yet,” Jodie said.

“I can’t imagine how it affected people who were working on the front lines. People who were nurses, people who were losing family members to COVID. I fell apart and I was managing to do okay but I was terrified for my kids and the world and all of it.”

One of her Full House co-stars managed to get an iconic prop from the set. Find out what happened!
