‘The View': Candace Cameron Bure Reunites With Childhood Friend Fred Savage

Stars recall meeting in Los Angeles at age 12 and reenact dance number from Savage’s Bar Mitzvah

“Fuller House” star Candace Cameron Bure was reunited with her childhood friend Fred Savage on Monday’s “The View.”

Before he was busy promoting Fox comedy “The Grinder,” Savage was the child star of “The Wonder Years” and Bure was his first friend in Los Angeles.


The two met when they were twelve years old, they recalled on Monday’s show, and Bure even went to Savage’s Bar Mitzvah.

“How are you two the only normal child stars I’ve ever met?” asked Joy Behar, in what was probably not intended as a dig at “View” co-host Raven-Symone, who was not present during the interview.

The two attributed it to having great families, but got a little awkward when asked whether anything ever got romantic between them.

“I think that’s what made the friendship so great was that it just wasn’t [romantic],” said Savage. “It was just friends.”

“I probably had a teeny-tiny crush when I was 12,” Candace-Bure admitted, prompting Savage to retort, “Ok, fine, if we’re gonna say it, fine, Candace.”

The two ended the segment by dancing together to The Jackson Five’s “ABC,” reenacting a moment from Savage’s Bar Mitzvah.
