But wait, you might be asking, isn’t Lowe happily married? Why yes, yes he is. But Lowe and Stamos hilariously revealed their secret relationship at the Television Critics Association summer press tour on Thursday while promoting their new Fox series.
During a panel for his new comedy The Grinder, Lowe was basically asked if he and Stamos have ever bonded about their “criminal” handsomeness.
Lowe, of course, was more than game to riff on their good looks, saying, “As a founding member of Jimmy Kimmel’s Handsome Men’s Club, Stamos has been up for membership. So far, the board hasn’t voted him in yet.”
Say whaaa?! So what’s the hold up? “Sting is really lobbying hard on his behalf,” Lowe joked. “David Beckham has blackballed him every time he’s gotten close. I am looking forward to when John eventually makes it in. It’s a wonderful club.”
Oh, it gets even better. Set to take the stage after Lowe to promote his own comedy, Grandfathered, Stamos, out of nowhere, from the back of the ballroom, yelled, “Rob, tell the truth, we’ve dated for years!”
Too. Much. Handsome. For. One. Couple. Right?!
But seriously, have the handsome duo actually ever met? Well, Lowe said it’s possible.
“There’s a rumor that in my lost decade that I may or may not have sat on the lifeguard tower on the Beach Boys concert as John was playing the drums,” he quipped. “There’s talks I did it. I’ve seen footage of it. But I have very little memory. Yes, that was my John Stamos moment. And he’s a hell of a drummer!”
In case you didn’t know, Stamos is friends with the band and has actually played drums for the Beach Boys before, including on Full House! He also appeared in their music video for “Kokomo” in 1988.
The Grinder and Grandfathered both premiere Tuesday, Sept. 29, on Fox.
