One of the finest gifts the Isles of Greece have ever given us (just a notch below democracy and just a notch above the art of storytelling), John Stamos only gets better with age. He's starring in the new Fox sitcom Grandfathered, filmed My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2 and next year he'll be reprising the role of Full House's Uncle Jesse for the Netflix series Fuller House, all while continuing to work for the adoption charity Project Cuddle. He's so busy that it's no wonder that he forgot to wear pants for our shoot. In the spirit of our new #Fandemonium issue, celebrating stars with devoted online fan bases, we asked John to answer some internet-y questions in the below questionnaire.
What is the craziest thing you've done all year?
Pose bottomless for PAPER.
What is something no one knows about you?
I'm a crappy singer. (Well, maybe some people know.)
What is the most amazing thing about being you?
Basically, I get to meet truly extraordinary people. I especially like the funny ones. This life has surpassed my ability to describe it. It's wondrous. I've found myself in so many absolutely unbelievable situations… it's all wonderfully insane.
What is the most stressful thing about being you?
Answering questions like this. And learning lines is the hardest part of the acting process.
When you want to get attention, what do you do?
Pose for PAPER.
Have you ever edited your Wikipedia page?
I never have — but I remember early on reading it and someone else edited in that I had done a bunch or porno films with very funny titles. Clever.
What is the first website you check in the morning?
The Huffington Post.
Do you have a Google Alert for yourself?
No way. I rarely read about myself — mostly because I'm tired of "me" — and also if you believe the good stuff, you have to believe the bad stuff. I just stay away.
What was the last show you binge-watched?
Inside Amy Schumer.
Have you ever left a comment on a story about yourself?
No, don't really read the comments — but [my Grandfathered co-star] Paget Brewster left a scathing one defending me on Deadline recently — I found that quite funny (and sweet).
What is your favorite social media account: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or something else?
Sometimes they all drive me crazy. Other times, I'm thoroughly entertained. I've probably gravitated a little more towards Twitter, but I like Instagram quite a bit, too. Facebook is pretty cool. And I've been having a lot of fun on Snapchat lately.
