Whoever thought Jodie Sweetin was dead...




Ex-Full House Star: I Was Hooked on Meth
WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 01, 2006 02:55PM EST

By Stephen M. Silverman

Former Full House actress Jodie Sweetin has made startling admission: she once had a daily methamphetamine habit.

The problems began when Full House ended its run in 1995, the actress told Good Morning America on Wednesday. "There is a certain sense of loss when a series ends. 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," says Sweetin, 24, who played Stephanie Tanner on the series.

Seeking a "normal" life, Sweetin attended high school and college, and was married by age 20 – to a Los Angeles policeman. But two years ago, feeling bored and being unemployed, she says she began experimenting with drugs and got hooked on meth.

After a three-day "lost" weekend, reportedly followed by an intervention staged by her former Full House costars Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, John Stamos and Bob Saget, Sweetin checked herself in to the Promises rehab facility for six weeks of intense treatment.

Sweetin now owns up to "living a total double life," she tells GMA. "I was married to a police officer – we are going through a divorce right now – he had no idea."

As for the future? "I want to make movies, TV series, wherever the career takes me," she says. "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."






P.S. I'M VERY EMOTIONAL ABOUT THE TOPIC.

its sad to see the fall of stars this way. it must be really sad, to not hav a sense of identity or wen one feels his or her world is falling apart!

is the need to take drugs always associated with weakness?

= rich

Shitrint said...

@rich:
i think taking drugs is associated to either of these or all of them:

1. confused/troubled state of mine,
2. inappropriate upbringing or atmosphere,
3. too much money + too much free time
4. finally weak mind or willpower to let urself get started and/or addicted to it!

maybe there may be nmore reasons or i may be not right!

I didn't know it at all ... I still watch the re-runs every weekend ... and love it ... sad that not all child artistes make it big later on ... when they've practically worked all their lives ...
