Bob Saget Defends the Olsen Twins’ Decision to Turn Down “Fuller House”

The RL Danny Tanner still has his onscreen daughters’ backs! Though it’s been more than 20 years since Bob Saget played dad to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen on Full House, he’s still sticking up for the twins he once called “Michelle” on TV.


The comedian stopped to talk to Entertainment Tonight while attending the Stand Up for Pits benefit in Hollywood on Sunday, addressing the situation head-on to say that the sisters shouldn’t feel obligated to keep up their acting careers if that’s not what makes them happy. “People should do what they want with their lives, and when they’re nine months old and they get a job, [they have a right to stop doing it],” he told the outlet. “I love them very, very much, Ashley and Mary-Kate, and they love what they do and acting is not what they want to do. People should do what they want to do.” Awwww!

The Olsens were just nine months old when they jointly took on the role of Michelle Tanner, playing the part from 1987 to 1995. They famously went on to star in their own movie franchise through Dualstar Entertainment Group before setting their sights on the fashion industry and leaving acting behind: Mary-Kate’s last role was in 2011’s Beastly, and Ashley took on only minor parts and video roles for years before quitting for good in 2013. Together, the sisters went on to build the sartorial empire they rule today, with fashion brands Elizabeth and James and The Row.

And while fans will surely always hold out hope that the ladies will have a change of heart and pop up on Fuller House sometime down the road, for now, it looks like we’ll have to settle for re-runs.

What do you think about Bob Saget’s take on the Mary-Kate and Ashley sitch? Let us know @BritandCo!

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
