Candace Cameron Bure has dominated the movie and TV business since the early 1980s, but it hasn’t always been an easy road for the Fuller House star.
While stopping by the to promote her new Hallmark movie, A Shoe Addict’s Christmas, the 42-year-old revealed that she has received her fair share of criticism for her beliefs throughout the years.
“I have experienced discrimination in the faith department for sure in my career,” she said, adding, “But I don’t experience it as much now and I think because so many people know me for it.”
The actress and author of Kind is the New Classy attributes the change to people understanding where she stands on the topic. “I think they look to me for my faith and if they’re not looking for that then they probably just don’t hire me,” she explained. “But it’s not thrown in my face like ‘We’re not having her on because she talks about it.’’’
When Wendy questioned how Candace knew this had happened in the past, she was quick to answer: “Because I had been booked for things and then I would get cancelled a few days before,” Candace said. “The booker would go, ‘Oh, we don’t want her on.’ That happened a handful of times.”
But Candace hasn’t let Hollywood see her sweat, forging on with projects that speak to her.
“I’ve chosen to be in family entertainment. That has been a very intentional decision on my part,” she said. “I’ve always wanted to do family entertainment, I’ve never wanted to go down a dark road even as an actress.”
