Admit it, you were crushed when you heard the news that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen would not take part in Netflix's Fuller House. Rumors soon flew that the twins' younger sister Elizabeth Olsen would fill the shoes of all-grown-up Michelle Tanner, because who else could master the role? But sorry to break it to you folks, she won't be making an appearance on the series.

In an E! News interview at the red carpet premiere of I Saw the Light, Olsen said she didn't get an offer from producer Jeff Franklin (the Full House creator has known her since infancy). "If I did, I'm pretty sure no one on my team heard it. I don't  know where that started," she stated.

John Stamos was part of the Tanner rumor train back in January, as he claimed the cast was in cohorts with Olsen. "We talked to her agent, and her agent was like, 'Come on, she's not going to do that.' But we did call her agent," Stamos shared on Andy Cohen's SiriusXM show.

Despite not being on the show, Olsen did watch the first Fuller House episode and said it was "great" (there was no further comment on the rest of the season). The show has received its fair share of harsh critics' reviews, yet that didn't stop Netflix from renewing it for a second season
