"Yes, I was on sleeping pills and I was jet-lagged, but I was also just plastered. And I never said I wasn't, but that whole Warner Bros. publicity machine got involved and said, 'Just say he was jet-lagged.' I said, 'No, tell 'em the truth! I was f***ing drunk in Australia. Big deal.'"

John Stamos has blamed a wacky appearance on Australian TV on alcohol.

"When I went on that morning show, I was drunk," the star told The Advocate of his 2007 appearance on the Australian talk show "Mornings With Kerri-Anne," in which he insulted a Daily Telegraph reporter. "Yes, I was on sleeping pills and I was jet-lagged, but I was also just plastered. And I never said I wasn't, but that whole Warner Bros. publicity machine got involved and said, 'Just say he was jet-lagged.' I said, 'No, tell 'em the truth! I was f***ing drunk in Australia. Big deal.'"

John was candid on a number of topics with the mag, including his feelings about "Dancing With the Stars."

Asked if he would ever join the show to show off some of his Broadway moves, he said, "No."

"Not to be disrespectful, but isn't that the place you go when you don't have a career?" he said. "Why would I dance on that show when I get to dance on Broadway?"

John, now starring in Broadway's "Bye Bye Birdie," also opened up about his seemingly eternally youthful looks.

"It's funny, because I haven't had one ounce of Botox or any of that," he said. "I finally got gray hairs in the past couple years, and I wore it on 'ER,' but they made me cover it up in this show. I don't want to be one of those weird-looking guys who gets old but stays looking young."

As for his thoughts on his fellow Hollywood-turned-Broadway stars – including Daniel Craig and Hugh Jackman, starring in "A Steady Rain" – he joked that the handsome actors had a club.

"Some woman asked me the other day, 'Is there a place where all you heartthrobs hang out?' I said, 'Yes, it's called the Hollywood Heartthrob Club. We just sit around and talk about how hot we are.' There is a great bar, Bar Centrale, where everybody goes after their shows, so it's a good place to see your fellow actors."
