Jodie Sweeten

Jodie Leanne Sweetin (born January 19, 1982 in Los Angeles, California) is an American actress best known for her role as "Stephanie Tanner" on the sitcom Full House. She stayed with the program for its entire run, from 1987-1995. It is said that the producers cast her in the role based on her smile.

Sweetin first stepped into showbiz by doing a hot dog ad. Her debut role was in The Hogan Family in 1987, in which she played Pamela, the niece of Mrs. Poole.

Following the end of Full House, she said she'd try to be a "normal" teenager. She graduated from Los Alamitos High School in 1999 and attended Chapman University in southern California from 1999-2003. She majored in mass communications, looking forward to a show business career in teaching acting. She was also a member of Alpha Phi Fraternity while in college.

Sweetin also did a few guest appearances on TV shows, such as Party of Five, Brotherly Love, and Yes, Dear, after Full House ended. She currently resides in Los Alamitos, California.

Sweetin married police officer Shaun Holguin on July 27, 2002 and her flower girl was Full House co-star Candace Cameron's daughter, Natasha. In 2006, she told Good Morning America that she was in the process of a divorce.

While on GMA, she also revealed that she voluntarily checked herself into rehab in March 2005 to recover from a methamphetamine addiction. She said she's now clean and sober and denied tabloid reports of a "three-day bender" and an intervention from her former Full House castmates.

During an appearance on Good Morning America, Sweetin, who played middle sister Stephanie Tanner on the hit sitcom Full House, revealed that she is a recovering meth addict and once battled a daily drug habit, reports E!Online.

The ex-actress, 24, said she had trouble figuring out how to adjust to a regular childhood existence after Full House ended its run in 1995.
