No matter what John Stamos does, he will always be best known for playing Elvis-loving Uncle Jesse on Full House, which is too bad because he’s done so much since. Even though it feels like we know a lot about John Stamos, here are 9 facts that prove that you don’t!
9. Early Life
John Phillips Stamos was born in Cypress, California, to Loretta, a model, and Bill, a Greek-immigrant restaurateur. He has two sisters, Alana and Janeen, who are both teachers. His family’s name was original “Stamatopoulos,” but his grandparents shortened it to “Stamos” when they emigrated from Greece. During high school, he worked at his father’s restaurant flipping burgers and playing drums in his high school’s marching band.
