John Stamos reveals he tried to fire Olsen twins from ‘Full House’

(WRIC) – Did you know John Stamos once tried to get the beloved Olsen twins fired from ‘Full House’ when they were babies?

The information came out in an interview at the TCA Press Tour in Beverly Hills after a clip from Lifetime’s “Unauthorized Full House Story” was released and featured the actor playing Stamos trying to get rid of Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, now 29, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Stamos says the toddler twins “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 I [gesturing], ‘Get them out … ,’” he told reporters of the show that first aired in 1987. “That is actually 100 percent accurate. They brought in a couple of unattractive redheaded kids. We tried that for a while and that didn’t work. [Producers] were like, all right, get the Olsen twins back. And that’s the story.”
