Bob Saget, best known for playing Danny Tanner on ‘Full House,’ defended his “TV daughter” Candace Cameron Bure, who played the eldest sibling DJ Tanner on the sitcom.
While speaking to Saget on his “Here For You” podcast, Bure explained that she gets accused of being “fake” because of her upbeat personality, according to Today.
Saget replied that she is the “opposite of fake” and that she was “raised all positive” with “a lot of love and a lot of family.”
“When you are doing anything, you don’t phone it in,” he said. “You’re a businesswoman. You sell things and you try to put your branding on it. That means something to you. You’re not going to sell something that doesn’t mean anything to you, and you’re not faking. … It’s beautiful the way you’re doing it, and you’re doing it earnest. And I’m sorry you’re perky sometimes! What’s wrong with being perky?”
“When you watch the old episodes (of Full House), when it first started, you did have that positive light in your eyes that I did at 10 years old,” he continued. “You had a very positive glow about you, period.”
“That’s what you were like,” Saget said. “And that doesn’t mean you don’t become a teenager and go through the stuff that girls and women and men and boys go through. You know, you’re a positive person. So if you’re perky, it’s because you’re excited and/or you’ve had a lot of caffeine.”
Bure elaborated that it is hard for her to ignore criticism “when people are annoyed that I’m such a happy person,” she added. “I’m just like, let someone speak into this who’s known me since I was 9 years old.”
“That’s what people should know,” Saget replied. “There’s nothing fake about you.”
‘Full House’ produced 192 episodes across eight seasons. The two would reprise their roles as Danny and DJ Tanner in the sequel series ‘Fuller House,’ which ran for seventy-five episodes, concluding with the fifth season on Netflix.
