Jodie Sweetin shares sweet memory of Bob Saget about nickname he had for her
'I met Bob as a member of my family,' said Jodie Sweetin, recalling some of her favorite memories with him, on and off screen
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Jodie Sweetin was recently at the Scleroderma Research Foundation's (SRF's) signature fundraising event, 'Cool Comedy, Hot Cuisine,' when she talked about Bob Saget and shared some sweet memories. She mentioned that she got to know Bob as a part of her family and that he had a special nickname for her, as his on-screen daughter.
Bob Saget was known for his role as Danny Tanner on the ABC sitcom 'Full House', a role he reprised for its Netflix sequel 'Fuller House' along with Jodie Sweetin who played the role of Stephanie Tanner, his daughter on the show.
The Scleroderma Research Foundation was an organisation Bob Saget supported himself, so it was only natural that Jodie Sweetin spoke about her former co-star. In her interview with Hollywood Life on September 21, 2022 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel, Jodie said, “I don’t know if I can ever pick out one favorite memory, but I will say, I spent weekends with Bob’s kids at his house growing up. I got to know Bob as part of my family, not just as this celebrity or this bigger-than-life person." She recalled, “And I’ll say the one thing I can always remember is a hug from Bob and him saying your nickname. He’d be like, ‘Oh, Jod,’ and he’d give me this hug and he’d lean down into it and I will always be able to remember what that hug felt like.”
Jodie also mentioned that she always feels Bob’s spirit is with her “I have pictures of him all over my office from you know, Full House days and all that stuff, he’s always there,” she gushed. “I still haven’t gotten used to saying, Bob was, I still say Bob is.”
Jodie added that even Bob Saget's character Danny Tanner taught her several lessons. “End everything with a hug. And keep your room clean. As I’ve become a mom and gotten more, my kids are 14 and 12 now, and it’s just, keep your room clean. So I get it, I think I’m Danny Tanner in that regard,” she concluded saying she is thankful for his character and role it played in her life.
