John Stamos reveals why he was heartbroken after Friends cameo 

In an interview with Access Hollywood, Full House star John Stamos revealed that he was left disappointed after his cameo on FRIENDS. John Stamos appeared as a potential sperm donor for Chandler Bing and Monica Geller's characters in season nine of the series. He further stated that his show Full House, which aired from 1987 to 1995 was a success, because of which he was offered a cameo on FRIENDS.

John said that he was instructed before filming that after he enters, he should hold for applause, as the show used to be shot in front of a live audience, take his moment and then move on with his dialogue. Stamos also added how Matthew Perry, the actor who portrayed Chandler said to him that the audiences would be thrilled to have him on the show. The reason why he was left heartbroken was that he was met with silence on his entry with no applause and he continued with his scene anyway. The Born to Ride actor concluded by saying that he was sort of heartbroken because everybody was waiting for the people to clap in the audience but they did not.
