The Full House star, 52, reveals in this week’s PEOPLE that the last time he cried was when he saw the Tanner house onscreen again.
“This is so stupid, but it was when I saw the first promo for Fuller House,” Stamos tells PEOPLE. “Even shooting it, I never got too emotional. When they released it, I woke up and watched it in my bed with my dog just bawling my head off.”

Stamos previously spoke to PEOPLE about the bond he and his costars share.
“We never stopped loving each other,” he said. “That magic you saw? It’s still there because it never stopped from the day that we ended the show.”
Fuller House premieres on Netflix Friday.
