Actress Candace Cameron Bure isn't shy about sharing her Christian. She is unabashedly a follower of Jesus.
However, that hasn't always made her life in Hollywood easy. She told Wendy Williams that she has faced discrimination for her Christian beliefs.
Bure revealed the discrimination while promoting her new Hallmark movie “A Shoe Addict's Christmas." While on Williams' talk show on Tuesday, the host asked if Hollywood has ever punished her for her faith.
“I have experienced discrimination in the faith department for sure, in my career. But I don’t experience it so much right now,” Bure replied.
“I don’t experience it as much now, I think because so many people know me for it," she added. "I think they look to me for my faith. If they’re not looking for that, they don’t hire me.”
However, that wasn't always the case for Bure. When she was better known for playing DJ Tanner on Full House than for her faith, Bure found that acting jobs would mysteriously disappear.
She revealed that in the past, she would be booked for things and then get canceled right before the event. She said she put that down to bias against her Christian faith.
In the interview, Bure also revealed that she never wants to return to being a co-host on "The View." While on the show, Bure often voiced the minority opinion.
“I don’t miss ‘The View,’ at all,” said Bure. “I love being on talk shows, I love hosting talk shows but that was a hard job every single day, talking politics.”
However, she did reveal that her favorite part of being on "The View" was talking about her Christian faith. She said that is when she felt the most comfortable in her role.
“That was the easiest part for me, to be able to talk about my faith and share my faith,” she said.
