DEAR STACY: Outside of the recent "Full House" reunion, what has Jodie Sweetin been up to lately? I was so glad when she seemed to clean up and come back from her horrible life as a meth addict. — Pat H., Clearwater, Fla.

DEAR PAT: Sweetin recently completed production on a holiday movie called "Defending Santa" with Dean Cain in Canada. In addition to acting, she makes occasional "Full House"-related appearances. Last year, she wed her third husband, Morty Coyle, (who deejayed for that 'FH" reunion party, by the way). She and Coyle have a daughter, and she also has a daughter by her second marriage.

DEAR STACY: Whatever became of the little boy who played Billy, the friend of Tom Hanks' character, in "Big"? He was wonderful. — Bethany L., Springfield, Mass.

DEAR BETHANY: Jared Rushton grew up, of course. Prolific as a juvenile actor ("Honey, I Shrunk the Kids," "Overboard," etc.), he's now 39 and plays guitar in the rock band Deal by Dusk.

He kept active as an actor through the 1990s, logging lots of episodic TV guestings on shows from "ER" to "Cracker."

DEAR STACY: What happened to Peta Wilson from "La Femme Nikita? What's she doing now? — John, East Hartford, Conn.

DEAR JOHN: At 42, the Australian actress and model continues to work, though more sporadically than in her "Femme Nikita" days. Her next project is an action film called "Havana Heat," expected in 2014, in which she is to play a character named Captain Camille Davenport. She's done guest roles on "The Finder" and "CSI: Miami" in the last few years, and a TV movie, "Malibu Shark Attack" in 2009. She has an 11-year-old son, Marlowe, with British director-screenwriter Damian Harris, from whom she split in 2002.

DEAR STACY: What is the relation between Helen Hunt and Bonnie Hunt? — Gina A., Norfolk, Va.

DEAR GINA: No relation.
