John Stamos talks about his "player" image and his first movie role! PDF Print E-mail


If you think of Greek-American TV actor John Stamos as a Playboy, you're not alone. But there's one person who doesn't agree with the image: Stamos himself.

"It's like all of a sudden you're that guy that everybody's calling Casanova, or whatever. It just sort of snuck up on me," Stamos tells omg! from Yahoo!. "I don't want to be caught up in the responsibility of maintaining that image, because it's not me. I don't like it. I don't think it's a good look, a guy who's dating a bunch of different girls all the time. And I really don't."


In a candid conervsation, the (Full House, Glee) Greek-American actor John Stamos admitted he’d like to settle down but can’t seem to shed his player persona.

Since his divorce from Rebecca Romijn in 2004, Stamos has been romantically linked to several women in Hollywood, sending his over-the-top image into overdrive.

“I try not to get trapped into everybody’s image of who they think I am or who I should be. You turn on Howard Stern, he’s making me out to be this guy that I’m really not,” Stamos said.

“I’m a guy that wants to be in a relationship and should be in a relationship. Sometimes I’m afraid of it because I don’t want to let people down… You get caught up in it. You don’t want to disappoint people.”

Stamos, who is currently filming his first lead in a indie movie in New York, also talked about his exploits — which couldn’t seem further from the party animal he’s portrayed to be.

“You think I’m in New York, playing around. I sometimes feel the responsibility to be that guy… [but] I’ve been in New York for five weeks now, and I’ve gone to bed by myself,” he said.

Still, the same swingin' single image that haunts the 48-year-old has come with a few benefits, namely helping land him his first lead in a film, the upcoming indie movie "My Man Is a Loser" in which he portrays a ladies' man whose two beleaguered married friends (played by "True Romance" star Michael Rapaport and former "MadTV" actor Bryan Callen) enlist him to help them spice up their own relationships.
