During a time in his life when he was depressed, John Stamos revealed in an interview that he didn’t care whether he lived or died.

Stamos is now a well-known actor who has received acclaim for his work on the family comedy series. He’s 59 years old and has been sober for over 10 years.

In a new interview with “CBS Sunday Morning.” Stamos claimed that he had Peter Pan syndrome, which can be dangerous.

The actor candidly stated, “For the longest time when I was not sober, or I was fuzzy, I thought ‘I’ve done it all.’ I don’t — I wouldn’t — I don’t want to kill myself, but I didn’t care if I died.”

In a new interview with “CBS Sunday Morning.” John Stamos spoke candidly about his life after getting sober following a DUI charge in 2015.

“If I was dead tomorrow, it’s OK.” he said. However, with age, Stamos realized that his mentality was incorrect. “What was I thinking? I hadn’t done it all. I still haven’t done it all — not even close.”

Stamos became a household name after landing his part on “Full House,” He also met his brother, Bob Saget, his co-star on the show, before it finished airing.

In January, Saget died unexpectedly. “He was there for everything — all the good, all the bad. He was my brother; he’s the brother that I always wanted.” Stamos recalled. He’s my brother; he’s the brother I’ve always wanted.

Stamos’ checkered past includes both excellent and terrible things. In 2015, he was charged with a DUI.

“You know that faithful night… I got in my car, I thought I could drive, and I couldn’t,” he recalled. “I just have flashes in my mind about driving in circles… People were driving near me and they’d roll the window down and say, ‘Uncle Jesse, pull over.’”

The process — rebuilding — is what Stamos refers to as “the hardest thing ever.”

In 2018, John Stamos married his wife Caitlin McHugh. The two have a son together Billy, who is 5 years old.

Stamos reflected on a difficult period in his life, saying “I thought I was fooling everybody, that’s the thing,”

Since then, he’s experienced the good.

He was cast as the father and husband, respectively to Billy and Caitlin McHugh.
