Candace Cameron Bure Reveals She Turned Down Many Roles Because They Weren’t Family-Friendly

By Tess Farrand, Associate Content Editor

Candace Cameron Bure revealed in the May edition of Good Housekeeping that she turned down many roles because they weren’t family-friendly.

“The values that my parents instilled in me included family being the most important thing. And so I always knew, even in my early 20s, that it wasn’t my goal to do something that I felt kids or my own parents couldn’t watch — even if a role was amazing. Because of that, I’ve said ‘no’ a lot over the years,” Bure told Good Housekeeping (GH).

Bure made similar comments at the 27th annual Movieguide® Awards, which she co-hosted with her daughter Natasha Bure (HOME SWEET HOME).

“[Faith and family movies, inspirational content], that’s what I’ve intentionally done with my career,” said Bure to Movieguide®’s Evy Baehr Carroll.

Among her books, killer workouts and acting career, Bure recently told Hoda Kotb on TODAY that faith sustains her and her family.

Fans of Bure aren’t surprised by her resolved stance, but that doesn’t always mean the general public agrees with the FULLER HOUSE star. Yet, Bure never shies away from proclaiming her faith, even when she co-hosted THE VIEW.

“[THE VIEW] was a super tough job,” Bure told GH. “It helped me grow a lot, but that was the most difficult job I’ve had to date.”

Unlike many people though, Bure enjoys the busyness and challenges.

Bure said to GH, “The work keeps me going. I love what I do. It’s what energizes me.”
