John, who recalled being nicknamed “Big Nose Stamos” as a kid, shared why he turned to plastic surgery. “Everyone who gets a nose job tries to find some excuse other than vanity,” he wrote, “but let’s call it what it was—vanity.”
And while the Big Shot actor admits that he would’ve probably continued to tweak his face during this time in his life, his mom, Loretta Stamos, helped him stay grounded.
“My mom figures if I want to continue doing this work,” John added, “she’ll make sure I’m safe, supported, and having a good time. It matters to her that I don’t get so swept up in the moment that I lose my connection to family, friends, faith, and fun.”
