It was in the ’80s, so I guess big hair and high bangs. And I had so many gummy bracelets! While we were doing ‘Full House,’ we were like, ‘You know, in 10 years, we’re going to look back on this and think this is horrible.’ But everyone looked like that!
I had no style when I was 17! I look at teenagers now and say, ‘I wish I’d looked like them when I was that age.’ I had no style whatsoever, but style also wasn’t as prominent as it is today. I was just very laid back, usually wearing jeans and tank tops and flip flops.
Our marriage is grounded in the word of God. That’s really it. God is the core of our marriage, and the foundation and the blueprint for it is how we live, and being open and honest and communicating, but ultimately doing what pleases God, and not in a selfish manner.
I did a lot of my school on set. Some years I went to a private school for a couple of hours, and then I’d always finish up with a tutor. I couldn’t do full days, but I tried to maintain my friendships and some normalcy while doing a show.
We turn off the TV, video games and computer – except for homework – during the week. The TV’s reserved for Friday night, Saturday and Sunday just because that’s the time to do homework, and it makes it that much less chaotic in our house.
My mom and dad – they were always there. They were always on the set. They focused on our family life. The entertainment business wasn’t the end-all. They weren’t out to get the next big paycheck or the next big movie. It was about ‘What can we do as a family.’
