"So again I use that word [submissive], but I feel like it's taken so strongly when I'm kind of like, 'Everyone just calm down.'"

Candace Cameron Bure, formally known as "DJ" on the 1990s family show, Full House, has come forward to defend her conservative and Christian beliefs.

In a recent appearance on HuffPost Live, Candace outlined her views on marriage as stated in her new book, "Balancing It All: My Story of Juggling Priorities and Purpose."

In the book she writes: "I am not a passive person, but I chose to fall into a more submissive role in our relationship because I wanted to do everything in my power to make my marriage and family work."

She expanded on that on HuffPost Live by saying, "The definition I'm using with the word 'submissive' is the biblical definition of that. So, it is meekness, it is not weakness. It is strength under control, it is bridled strength."

She takes her views from the biblical passage, 1 Peter 3:1: "In the same way, you wives, be submissive to your own husbands so that even if any of them are disobedient to the word, they may be won without a word by the behavior of their wives."

"It is very difficult to have two heads of authority," Candace said. "It doesn't work in military, it doesn't work - I mean, you have one president, you know what I'm saying?"

Candace has been married to ex-NHL player Valeri Bure for seventeen years. They have three children together.

"Listen, I love that my man is a leader," she said. "I want him to lead and be the head of our family and those major decisions do fall on him. It doesn't mean I don't voice my opinion and it doesn't mean I don't have an opinion - I absolutely do but it is very difficult to have two heads of authority. It doesn't work...And when you're competing with two heads that can pose a lot of problems or issues. So within my marriage we are equal in our importance...But we are different in our performances in our marriage."

However, today in an interview with Fox News, when asked if Candace would ever play a hooker in television or film, she said, "It really depends on the story because I am an actress. I don't want to play myself otherwise I would be a host, so I can't say I would never play a hooker. It would depend on the story. Is there something redeeming about the character or within the story? Is something going to be taught? If the answer is yes, then absolutely I'll play a hooker."

No word on if her husband, Valeri, would allow her to do so.
