Actor JOHN STAMOS' start is showbiz was far from glamorous because his dad made him work at the family burger restaurant - even after he landed his first screen role.

The former FULL HOUSE star, who split from REBECCA ROMIJNSTAMOS earlier this year (04), admits he was still forced to continue making burgers for customers after becoming a soap star.

He says, "I started on General Hospital when I was 18, but I was still flipping burgers at my dad's restaurant. He wouldn't let me quit.

"People would come in and say, 'Aren't you on General Hospital?' I'd say, 'No.'"
