John Stamos was in the headlines recently for a rumored relationship with his former Full House costar Lori Loughlin, but another actress is coming forward with tales of a date she had with the handsome actor.
Amy Poehler told Howard Stern this week that she once went to dinner with Stamos after he asked her, but looking back on it now, she thinks she blew it.
“I was at a restaurant. We were having dinner and I was like ‘Oh maybe this is a date,’ but I didn’t know. I blew it. I remember thinking ‘Oh s–t,’ like halfway through, ‘if this is really a date’… I think I was wearing a Leslie Knope shirt. I think I was wearing a shirt from work,” Poehler said.
The date occurred after she split from Will Arnett in 2012, and the actress–who is promoting her new book Yes, Please this week–said the night ended early.
“Well I think everything ended up the way it was supposed to end up,” she said.
Stamos and Loughlin have both said that they care about each other very much, but were never able to find the right timing.
“I was married at the time I was doing the show to my first husband,” Loughlin said earlier this year. “Literally when I was getting divorced, he met Rebecca [Romijn].”
Poehler is now happily dating comedian Nick Kroll, who has made appearances on Parks And Recreation as radio personality The Douche. Her book, Yes Please, hits stores on Tuesday.
