  • Quotes
  • The competition is so fierce once you become an adult. I'll probably move on to something else.
  • I get recognized all the time, although people are like, OOh my gosh, you're not, like, 11 any more!" It's funny. People don't expect you to grow up.
  • I don't have any desire to ever act again full time. I don't mind doing occasional guest appearances on shows, but I have other things I'd like to do in my life now. I would like to get into teaching actors and starting a family with Shaun.
  • Sometimes when someone recognizes me, they are like, "You're alive!" I don't know why people thought I died. I guess that happens when you make a life for yourself outside of Hollywood.
  • [on the close relationship among the cast members of Full House (1987)] We all get along really well and we all are the best of friends. They really did become my other family and my group of friends.
  • It is kind of hard to figure out who you are when you've lost your job at age 13, when that was basically how you identified yourself.
  • I want to make movies, TV series, wherever the career takes me. I really hope this isn't the last people hear of me. In fact, I would like to make this a footnote in my career, not the end.
