Bob Saget & John Stamos 'Clashed' On 'Full House' Set Before They Eventually 'Met In The Middle'
John Stamos is reflecting on his friendship with late pal Bob Saget — but the dynamic duo weren't exactly fast friends.
In the wake of Saget's devastating passing earlier this month, Stamos sat down for an interview with The New York Times to share unexpected details about his relationship with the late comedian.
When they first started filming Full House together, Stamos claimed their styles "completely clashed. He was a comic. If there was even one person on the set, he had to make them laugh. And I was like, 'Where is the drama?'"
"I think we met in the middle," he added. "But we both went in kicking and screaming, not wanting to bend what we do."
"He could be painfully distracting — disruptive," the Grandfathered actor continued. "He couldn't stop [making jokes]. I think, if I may say, that it could have been a detriment sometimes to him."
Stamos — who played Saget's brother-in-law on the hit ABC show — also shared with the outlet a conversation he had with the comic's ex-wife Sherri Kramer at the funeral services a couple of weeks ago.

"At Bob’s memorial, his ex-wife, who is the mother of his three kids, came to me. She was crying. 'He loved you so much. He loved you so much. But in the beginning, he hated you,'" Stamos recalled Kramer reportedly saying. “'He would come home and he was so jealous of you. He would just complain about you so much.'"
But the Scream Queens actor didn't forget to say some kind words in honor of his beloved costar, who he described as "bombastic with his love and friendship" later in the interview. He even pointed out Saget was his "biggest cheerleader" and "biggest fan," aside from his mother.
"I guarantee you he went into that grave not knowing the love that his world has for him," Stamos said during the interview, "and that saddens me so much because he wanted that so bad."
While describing the last time he saw the stand-up comic, Stamos explained Saget's wife, Kelly Rizzo, said she had a "premonition" about his sudden passing before it happened, as the actor apparently talked about death frequently.
"The last time we were all together, we went on a double date to Nobu, maybe a month before he passed away. He didn't look like a guy who was going to die, but he was very calm, which was odd for Bob," Stamos reportedly recalled. "He was at peace somehow."
The cause and manner of Saget's death have not yet been revealed, although drug use and foul play have been ruled out by medical examiners.
