John Stamos Open Up About DUI, Sex Tapes, Deciding To Have An Abortion In His 20s And His Feelings For Fuller House
John Stamos spilled it all by getting up close and personal at the Howard Stern Show on Monday at SiriusXM. In the heels of the Fuller House reunion in Netflix, the actor talked about the issues surrounding him all these years and how he felt about them now.
"I had a horrific DUI, which I am so embarrassed by. I could have hurt somebody, it was really stupid and ignorant of me. And I hated myself for that. It was a bad, bad thing. So I said to myself, I have to stop this up and down, up and down, I have to," the actor said as mentioned in People.
During the interview, Stamos said he used to have no problem in stopping his drinking habits when needed but not until summer last year when he was arrested for DUI that led him to be sentenced of three years of probation.
Currently, he said that he is living a clean life without drinking and getting high 'at all.' He also shared that he entered a 30-day substance abuse program in July, a decision in which he put a hundred percent effort to change his bad habits.
The Godfather star also answered the rumors that in his 20s, he urged the woman who he previously impregnated to have an abortion. He, however, did not name the woman he is talking about.
This was just bad timing. It really wasn't my choice ... I think it was sort of a mutual decision," the actor told Stern as mentioned in Life News.
Stamos also talks about how sad and heartbroken he was in losing his parents.
I derailed over the years. I never really got back on track. A piece of me just was gone. ... It was a big part of my purpose for many, many years to be there for her and be a good son," he shared.
Meanwhile, during the interview for People's January 18 cover, John Stamos shared that the whole Fuller House cast has 'chemistry' that keep them together all these years, according to Today.
Magic happened. You can't cast chemistry, and we never stopped loving each other. The magic you saw 25 years ago? It's still there because it never stopped the day that we ended the show," he said.
