John Stamos on Saturday poked fun at Kirk Cameron and said that he was proud to be considered an “honorary gay man.”

Speaking at GLAAD's Media Awards, Stamos honored Smash producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron before he and Bernadette Peters presented the producing couple with the group's Vito Russo Award.

“I'm a better person because of the wonderfully artistic, smart, imaginative, vibrant and expressive people I've worked with from this community, like my friends Neil and Craig,” Stamos said. “As an actor, they have cast me in some very provocative and challenging roles.”

“They also cast me in my very first gay role – Uncle Jessie from Full House.”

“One of the things I'm sort of proud of in my life is that many of my friends like Neil and Craig sort of consider me an honorary gay man, which I'm honored by. Personally, I believe it's because of my steadfast support of GLAAD. Neil and Craig say it's because of my dreamy hair and eyes.”

Stamos also joked that while working on the daytime soap General Hospital “strange men repeatedly told me how they wished I were gay. But enough about Kirk Cameron.” (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
