Jodie Lee-Ann Sweetin was born on January 19, 1982, in Los Angeles, California. Both of her parents were in prison at the time of her birth, so she was immediately adopted by her uncle, Sam Sweetin, and his wife.
Jodie began taking dance lessons at the age of three, learning ballet and tap dancing. During her high school years, she met actor Matthew Morrison and worked with him in several musical productions. Sweetin went to Chapman University after graduating from high school.
How Did She Begin Her Career?
Jodie’s acting career began at a very young age, with her first commercial roles booked before she was five years old. She landed the role of Pamela in the sitcom Valerie in 1987. The Hogan Family was eventually renamed. That same year, she was cast as Stephanie Tanner in Full House.
The show never received rave reviews from critics, but it did attract a large audience and received high Nielson ratings. Jodie remained with the show until its conclusion in 1995. It proved to be a pivotal role for the young actress, and big things were expected of her in the future.
Sweetin, like many other child stars during this time, succumbed to drug and alcohol addiction at the age of 14 after the end of Full House. Her addiction persisted for the next 15 years, during which she experimented with a variety of substances such as ecstasy, meth, and crack cocaine.
Her drug problems forced her to leave the entertainment industry for a long time, but she returned in 2006 to host Pants-Off Dance-Off, a dance competition show aired on the Fuse network. She also appeared in the pilot episode of Small Bits of Happiness.
Although the show was never picked up, it did win the Best Comedy award at the Independent Television Festival in Los Angeles. Following this success, Jodie shifted her focus to independent films like Port City and Redefining Love. She first appeared in the web series Can’t Get Arrested in 2011, and then starred in the television film Singled Out.
