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

Speaking out against the flak the girls have received in recent years from fans who wanted to see them reunite with the rest of the cast on their show鈥檚 reboot, Fuller House, Saget said he doesn鈥檛 blame them and doesn鈥檛 think others should, either.

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鈥檛 feel obligated to keep up their acting careers if that鈥檚 not what makes them happy. 鈥淧eople should do what they want with their lives, and when they鈥檙e nine months old and they get a job, [they have a right to stop doing it],鈥 he told the outlet. 鈥淚 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.鈥 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鈥檚 last role was in 2011鈥檚 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鈥檒l have to settle for re-runs.
