Jodie Sweetin on Olsen Twins Skipping Fuller House: 'I Love Them No Matter What'
Leave it to Bob Saget to provide a Full House.
Jodie Sweetin, John Stamos and Andrea Barber are just a few of the celebs who showed up to support Saget as he hosted the Cool Comedy Hot Cuisine charity event, benefiting the Scleroderma Research Foundation, on Friday night.
After news broke that TV’s favorite family will be reuniting in a Netflix Full House reboot, the cast cannot seem to get enough of each other! Jodie Sweetin, for one, could not stop gushing about the upcoming reunion.
“I think it’s going to be a really strange dream – something that I never imagined or thought possible,” Sweetin, 33, told PEOPLE. “To be able to bring back such a well-loved show is, I mean it’s crazy. I don’t think it’s really sunk in yet, and I think the first day we’re all going to be on the set it’s going to be a really wonderful experience.”
Though Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen will not be joining the Fuller House cast, Sweetin says there are no hard feelings.
“I love them and support them no matter what,” Sweetin said. “Whatever it is that they choose to do, I’m behind them 100 percent. I love them no matter what.”
Though Stamos, Sweetin and Barber were not joined by fellow cast mates Lori Loughlin and Candace Cameron Bure, they were among other well-known names who were there to support the cause including John Mayer, Jimmy Kimmel, Queen Latifah, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrara and more.
Saget, 59, seemed overwhelmed with joy that his friends and fellow cast mates were there to support a foundation that it is so near and dear to his heart.
Though the night was centered around comedy, music and fine food, the true meaning behind the cause is heartfelt. The actor’s sister, Gay Saget, passed away from scleroderma at the age of 47. Saget’s involvement with the Scleroderma Research Fund has been constant and more evident throughout the years, and the event itself raised $600,000 for scleroderma research.
