Jodie Sweetin To Child Stars: ‘Stay Away From Meth’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Former child star Jodie Sweetin went from starring on hit show to shooting up meth all before age 25.

Sweetin, who grew up in the public eye as Stephanie Tanner on Full House, has been open about her past meth addiction and doesn’t want today’s child stars like the Jonas Brothers and Miley Cyrus to fall into the same hole she did when her series was canceled back in 1995.

Says Sweetin: “I just want them to remember to keep going. It’s a hard business and there’s so much competition. You just have to get out there and give it your best. Don’t let anyone shoot you down too early.”

Although showbiz helped fuel Sweetin’s downward spiral, she would still have no problem if her six-month-old daughter Zoie wanted to follow in her footsteps and become an actress.

As she puts it, “My parents never forced me to act. They were always so supportive and I’d be the same way with my daughter.”
