David Hasselhoff And John Stamos Talk About Their Dating Lives On A 1989 Episode Of 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' (VIDEO)

On a 1989 episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show," Oprah visited Los Angeles to sit down with some of the hottest television stars at the time, including David Hasselhoff of "Baywatch," John Stamos of "Full House," Clarence Gilyard Jr. from "Matlock" and Stephen Nichols from "Days of Our Lives."

Back then, women went wild for "Uncle Jesse," Stamos' character on the popular family sitcom.

"I was on a date a couple weeks ago and at the end of the date, the girl started busting up," Stamos recalled back then. "I asked, 'What's so funny?' and she [said], 'I'm with Uncle Jesse!'"

The audience burst into laughter. Oprah invited a female audience member to stand up and ask all of the men a question. "All you guys would be classified as 'pretty boys,'" the audience member began. "Do you ever date… just your average, everyday pretty girl that's not glamorous?"

"You know what? None of us are 'pretty boys,'" Gilyard said. "We're just regular guys."

The audience audibly disagreed, but the sexy celebs insisted that they were very down-to-earth.

"I have the same insecurities about approaching women as women do about approaching me," Hasselhoff told the crowd. "I'll see a pretty girl or someone over there and I'll say, 'God, you think I'll have a chance with her?'"

Another audience member jumped up. "And do you ever get turned down?" she asked.

"Yeah, there's always the one person in the crowd when four girls are going, 'Oh, yes...' There's always one who goes, 'Well, he's stuck up, you know. He's a TV star. Obviously he's a jerk,'" Hasselhoff told her with a grin. "You know, that's probably the one you're attracted to."
