JODIE SWEETIN IS ‘DISAPPOINTED’ THAT HER NEW MOVIE WAS SOLD TO CANDACE CAMERON BURE’S NETWORK: Jodie Sweetin revealed in an exclusive statement to People that she was “disappointed” to learn that her upcoming film, Craft Me a Romance, was sold to her Full House costar Candace Cameron Bure‘s network, Great American Family. “Sometimes, we, as actors, don't have control over which network buys the projects we are in, nor are we a part of the process in which they get sold,” Sweetin said in the statement. “So I was very surprised to learn by reading about it in the press yesterday that the independent film I worked on over a year ago was sold to Great American Family.” She added, “I am disappointed, but in keeping with my mission of supporting the LGBTQ+ family, any potential or future money made from this sale will be donated to LGBTQ+ organizations.” Bure has faced backlash since telling The Wall Street Journal in November of 2022, “Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core.”

Danson, who has been involved in ocean conservation for decades, told The Hollywood Reporter, “We do what we do because things are going to be getting worse and worse … Climate change can undo literally everything — 100 degrees off of Florida this summer. We’re here, this is not a warning.” He added that he’s “tired” of trying to convince people who don’t believe in climate change. “I will have a conversation with them that goes like, ‘Alright, forget what you call it, how can we help you when your neighborhood floods? What do we do now, because this is going to be happening, whether you believe it or not. How do we help you with your forest fires and your drought? How do we mitigate what’s already happening?'” the Cheers actor said.
