Off his game
John Stamos has apologized after making an unusual appearance on the Australian talk show “Mornings With Kerri-Ann.”
According to People.com, the actor, 43, who was Down Under to promote his long-running medical series “ER,” wandered around the set of the morning show, read host Kerri-Anne Kennerley’s lines from the teleprompter and made lewd gestures in front of her.
“John has been traveling extensively for the past few weeks in Greece, Egypt and Tokyo and had a difficult time adjusting to the time difference in Australia, which in turn led to many sleepless nights since his arrival,” the actor’s representative, Lewis Kay, told People magazine. “He acknowledges that his behavior was completely out of character during these interviews and apologizes.”
During a segment with Miss Kennerley, Mr. Stamos took issue with a Sydney Daily Telegraph newspaper claim that he was “bleary-eyed, staggering and slurring,” saying, “[The reporter] took a shot at me in the papers today at being tired.” Mr. Stamos also insulted the writer.
Later in the broadcast, during a discussion about deceased celebrities, Mr. Stamos asked, “Who else died?” and then answered jokingly, “My career after coming to Australia.”
