"How Rude" star does Meth!

Stephanie Tanner a.k.a. Jodie Sweetin appeared on Good Morning America this morning to talk about her recent drug of choice, Meth. This appearance is part of a series on GMA called "The Price of being a Child Star."

As you may know, meth takes a brutal toll on one's physical appearance. Here's Jodie right before her interview on GMA...


Here's a briefing on what happened:

When the show ended in 1995, she said she wanted to be a normal kid. She went to high school and college and by age 20 was married to a Los Angeles police officer — TV older sister Candice Cameron was in the wedding party.

But two years ago, she found herself dangerously addicted to one of the most debilitating drugs, methamphetamine. She said she was unemployed and bored and began simply by experimenting. Soon, she was using meth everyday.

The tabloid press reported a three-day bender as well as an intervention staged by her "Full House" castmates — including the Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, John Stamos and Bob Saget.

Sweetin, 24, never went as far as to blame her life as a child star for her addiction, but said that it was difficult to discover who she truly was after the show ended.
