Candace Cameron is One Hot, Thin Mom

by at . Comments

It's a slow celebrity news week, apparently.

Former Full House star Candace Cameron explains, in the newest issue of Us Weekly, how she went from a "chubby" child star (her words) to a hot mom of three!

The actress, 32, lost 22 pounds without typical Hollywood help: trainers, surgery or a special diet prepared by a chef. Those perks, she says, are "not realistic" for most individuals, and credits - gasp - diet and exercise for her change.

Cameron - who currently weighs 110 pounds, and is "5'2" - says she began taking heat from others, and herself, to lose weight as a teenager on Full House.

No word on whether Kimmie Gibbler peer pressured her.

"Then when I was 16, I filmed an episode of Full House where my family goes to Disney World. I remember putting on baggy overalls just to hide my stomach," she says. "When I watched it, I was pretty disappointed and bummed out."

Candace's diet roller coaster continued after after marrying Russian-born, former NHL player Valeri Bure in 1996 (unfortunately, her co-star Jodie Sweetin and her husband, Cody Herpin, could not achieve such long-lasting marital bliss).

After trying trying to follow a diet plan without much success, Candace Cameron turned to diet pills and "stuff like that, which never worked."

"You try bad things here and there," she admits.

"When I first met Val, I would eat as much food as him - but then he would play hockey for three hours!" she says.

Bure, 34, retired from the NHL in 2006, and started Bure Family Wines.

Then Cameron - who, at her heaviest, weighed 132 pounds - struggled with weight during her first pregnancy to her daughter Natasha, who's now 10 years old. She's also mom to Lev, 8, and Maksim, 6.

To stay slim, the actress now eats an easy-to-do diet. Even though she's now a size 0, Cameron still faces pressure in Hollywood to be even thinner.

While filming her recent Hallmark Channel flick, Moonlight & Mistletoe, the female director would instruct Cameron to "Suck it in!" she says.


I started watching Full House a few years ago, and i ABSOLUTLY LOVE IT! candace cameron is awesome, and so is jody sweetin. mary-kate and ashley look like trash now, but they were super cute during full house (basically when they were young!) i think that show was a huge success. i am so happy for candace, because she and her husband stayed together, which is hard to do for most celebrity couples, like stupid Jon and Kate. its too bad that Jodie and her husband didn't stay together. really, Jon Gosselin needs 2 get his crappy act together!


First off, I want to say that i grew up rushing home from school to catch the latest episode of Full House. I'm a huge fan! Candance Cameron is someone I greatly admire. She was a huge star and then dropped it all to settle down and focus on her family; not many stars can do that. Then, when she made her come-back she was a hot momma!! She is so precious; I adore her. She looks absolutely gorgeous right now! I aspire to look like her, but also to be able to devote myself to my family,as she does. Candace Cameron is a huge inspiration and role model to many young women. I am very proud of her for losing that weight, and think that she looks great!


ok this is sad cuz ya know 132 lbs is seriously overweight!!!! Are you kidding me this is what were trying to tell people? if your at 132 it's not good enough, I am 5'6 and 160 i am seriously happy with where I am at. I am happy for her yey her!!!! but don't encourage people who are that weight and healthy to drop another 20 lbs, it's not necessary!!! how dare they!!!!


She looks great but doesn't need to lose anymore weight! I mean shes a size 0 what else do people want? If she lost more weight she would look sick...
