How did John Stamos become famous?

Though he initially wanted to attend college, Stamos decided to head down a different path in the early 80s, quickly landing a starring role on the soap opera General Hospital in the role, Blackie Parrish. Stamos was nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award for that role and was quickly given a lead role in the short-lived CBS series, Dreams.

From there, Stamos landed his most well-known role as Jessie Katsopolis aka Uncle Jessie on Full House. On the show, Stamos played a young bachelor who, following his late sister’s death moves in with his brother-in-law and his three nieces.

Since then, Stamos has gone on to star in everything from Two and a Half Men to Necessary Roughness and the Netflix fan-favorite series, You. He has also had numerous guest-starring roles in series like Friends and Law and Order.

All of Stamos’ hard work has certainly paid off over the years. According to Celebrity Net Worth, the actor, singer, and musician is worth $25 million.

However, Stamos’ life hasn’t been a fairytale, he’s been open about his alcohol addiction and the downward spiral that he took following his divorce from actor, Rebecca Romijn and the deaths of his parents. Still, he has never let his missteps define him.

What color are John Stamos’ eyes?

A massive music fan who can play the guitar and who has often performed with the Beach Boys, one of Stamos’ major music inspirations is the late legendary Elvis Presley. It fits then that the California-born actor shares the same blue eye color as the rock and roll singer.

The actor who has also been vocal about his Greek heritage with pride has also mastered Presley’s smoldering stare, which he often did on Full House delighting fans.
