John Stamos Admits He Tried to Fire the Olsen Twins from ‘Full House’

Our favorite Uncle is back to work.

John Stamos tried to end Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s careers before they even started.

The actor has been very vocal about how much he wants the Olsen twins to join Fuller House, but that wasn’t always the case during the Full House days.

He was questioned about the incident after a clip from Lifetime’s Unauthorized Full House Story was released and featured the actor playing Stamos trying to get rid of the twins.

Stamos confirmed it when he told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Beverly Hills, Calif. that because they “cried a lot” on set, he wanted to see whether another set of young kids would work for the show.

It was very difficult to get the shot. So that actually is 100 percent accurate. I said, ‘Get those kids…’ [gestures to get rid of them] and they brought in a couple of unattractive red-headed kids. We tried that for a while and that didn’t work. ‘Alright, get the Olsen twins back.’ That’s the story.

…and the rest is history.
