Bob Saget still has love for his Fuller House co-star, Lori Loughlin.

The actor made an appearance on the Today show on Tuesday to talk about his new movie, Benjamin, and he was asked about Loughlin recently pleading not guilty to all the charges against her concerning her alleged involvement in a massive college admissions scam. The 54-year-old actress and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, are accused of paying $500,000 in bribes to get their daughters, 19-year-old Olivia and 20-year-old Bella, admitted to the University of Southern California as recruits for the crew team, even though neither of them participated in the sport.

"I think I'm underqualified," Saget said.

When asked if he's spoken to Loughlin since the scandal erupted, he joked, "We go by carrier pigeon."

"But, I will say I love her and I will say no comment," he continued. "It's a personal thing because it's a strange time and what do you say?"

Saget has previously shown his support for Loughlin. In late March, he commented on the sensitive predicament he was in when asked by paparazzi about the actress' current legal troubles.

"I usually don't do interviews on the street, but you love who you love in your life," Saget told cameramen after leaving lunch in Los Angeles with his fellow Fuller House co-star, John Stamos. "Candace [Cameron Bure] said it really good at the Kids' Choice Awards. You love who you love." 

"I'm on the team of people that I love, but life's complicated," he added. "I don't like talking about it, but you gotta love your people."

Meanwhile, Stamos commented, "I'm just not ready to talk about it."

Cameron Bure and Fuller House stars Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber appeared to reference Loughlin's situation while accepting the award for Favorite Funny TV Show for the popular Netflix revival at the Kids' Choice Awards last month.

"A loving family sticks together no matter what," Cameron Bure said onstage. "They stick together through the hard times, they support each other, they encourage one another, they pray for each other, and they stand by their side, no matter how tough it gets."
