Lori Loughlin, 49, enjoys feeling she is part of other people’s lives. “I get a lot of people who tweet to me and say, ‘Will you be my Aunt Becky?’ ” says the former Full House star.
Loughlin, who has two teen daughters with her husband, designer Mossimo Giannulli, says, “I live a fairly normal life, although I know I can’t walk around Disneyland without a hat and sunglasses. That’s where I’d start to stir up a commotion.”
Loughlin’s life may change, though, with two new projects. In Garage Sale Mystery on the Hallmark Movie Channel, she plays a detective on the case of a neighborhood murder. In the series When Calls the Heart, launching Oct. 5 on Hallmark Channel, she plays a 19th-century widow in a frontier town.
“I’m no spring chicken anymore,” Loughlin says, “but people will say to me, ‘Oh you’re in good shape. What do you do?’ I tell them, ‘It’s all about taking care of yourself and being smart about what you eat, exercising and enjoying life. There’s really no mystery. It’s a little bit of work, but anyone can do it. You’ve just got to put your mind to it.’”
