Actress Candace Cameron Bure revealed that she’s getting more and more uncomfortable as she gets older kissing other men on-screen who aren’t her husband.

In a recent interview with Us Weekly, Cameron Bure revealed that she’s not the only one squeamish about it — her husband, hockey player Valeri Bure, hardly even visits the set of her hit Netflix series, “Fuller House,” anymore because he’s also uncomfortable.

What did she say?

Cameron Bure told the magazine that she’s “over” having to kiss multiple men on “Fuller House” and wishes that her character would stick with one man on the Netflix show.

“I’ll be honest, I’m, like, I’m kind of over it in the sense that I don’t like that I keep kissing two different men! I’d like to stick with one guy,” she said of her character arc on “Fuller House,” which includes a love triangle with Scott Weinger (Steve) and John Brotherton (Matt), two of the show’s male actors.

She added, “Sometimes I’m doing my Hallmark movies and we’ve got a new guy in each movie. I’m getting more uncomfortable with it the older I’m getting. I’m like, ‘I don’t want to keep doing this!'”

Cameron Bure said that her husband has limited his visits to the set of “Fuller House” because it makes him uneasy.

“He actually doesn’t watch anything that I do for that very reason,” she revealed, “because it is uncomfortable and I totally understand and respect it.”

She added, “He’s always held a position that, ‘I don’t want to ever tell you not to or stop you from your job,’ and all that, but he doesn’t want to watch and I respect that. And it’s the boundaries.”

All in the (Christian) family

Cameron Bure isn’t the only one reluctant to lock lips with someone who isn’t her spouse — even in the name of acting.

Her brother, Kirk Cameron, outright refuses to kiss other women when filming projects and will bring his wife on set in order to film kissing scenes with her instead.

Appearing on NBC’s “Today” in 2008 to promote his Christian film, “Fireproof,” Kirk told hosts Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford that he has a “commitment not to kiss any other woman” and explained why he won’t kiss other women even on-screen.

He revealed that any stand-in used for his television or movie love interest is, in fact, his wife.

“When I’m kissing my [on-screen] wife, we’re actually husband and wife honoring marriage behind the scenes,” Kirk said.
