Watch: John Stamos Pokes Fun at "Full House" Hair!

You can't touch the hair. But you can make fun of it.

Though Full House's Uncle Jesse will forever remain one of our ultimate TV crushes, the man himself John Stamos did not hold back while talking about his infamous hairstyle when he caught up with E! News. 

"It was like two crows had died on my head!" he told Kristin Dos Santos at the 2015 Television Critics Association Press Tour on Thursday. "The sideburns were big!" 

But come on, at the time, Stamos, who is reprising the iconic role but not the early hairstyle) of Jesse for Netflix's 2016 revival Fuller House, must've loved the 'do as much as Jesse did on the show, right? Wrong.

"No! I look now and I go, 'Why didn't anybody say something to me?!" he quipped.

But Stamos, whose new Fox show Grandfathered premieres this fall, is actually excited to see his old hair return in Lifetime's upcoming TV movie The Unauthorized Full House Story, with a "pretty dreamyJustin Gaston taking on the role of Stamos/Uncle Jesse. "I can't wait for that TV movie!" Stamos admitted. "Is that bad to say?"

And Stamos also admitted he did almost have Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen fired when they were younger because they wouldn't stop crying, telling us, "I did. I was a thespian! I was coming off of General Hospital. I was a real actor! I had to pull off these scenes and these kids were crying!'" As Stephanie Tanner would say: How rude!
