John Stamos recently spoke to GQ about being an elderhottie (I’m not kidding, that’s pretty much the gist of the article, but who can argue?). And because John Stamos will forever be Uncle Jesse to some people, he was of course asked what he thinks about the college bribery situation with Aunt Becky. If Uncle Jesse was actually answering, he might say: “Have mercy and FREE BECKY, thankyuhverymush.” But this is John Stamos, and he was just a bit more subtle in his support of Lori Loughlin.
Lori Loughlin and her husband/alleged co-conspirator Mossimo Giannulli have pleaded not guilty to allegedly bribing admissions officials to secure a spot at USC for their daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella. Both Lori and Mossimo believe they’re going to be found innocent. They’re not the only ones, because John Stamos believes his former Full House co-star is pretty sure no crime has been committed. via GQ:
“I gotta be careful. I want to wait until the trial happens, if it does, or whatever the result is, and then talk about it.”
Are you close with her?
“Yes. And I’ll tell you one thing that has been strange is: Honestly I can’t figure it out. It doesn’t make sense. I talked to her the morning everything hit. I just can’t process it still. Whatever happened, I’m pretty sure that the punishment is not equal to the crime, if there was a crime.”
Um, it’s strange? It doesn’t make sense? Which part, because all parts make sense to me. It probably makes sense to John Stamos too, he’s just so ride-or-die for Aunt Becky that he’s willing to believe what he wants to believe. Actually, he’d make a great character witness for Lori. She’ll just have to coach him first to make sure he doesn’t slip up.
“Your honor, does this look like the type of woman who would feel so entitled as to use her financial privilege to cheat the system? She’s nothing but humble and honest! For example, she once lived in an attic with myself, two kids, and a dog! And this was in 1990s San Francisco, before the tech boom made it so you had to live like that.”
