Juan Pablo Di Pace is opening up about self-love.

The “Fuller House” actor hosted a talk at the TedX event in March and chatted about his decision to come out and what it took to accept it.

“Acceptance was my fuel, and when that is the case, like an addict, you do whatever it takes to get a fix,” he told the crowd in a clip posted to YouTube at the end of Pride Month. “I figured if I changed my f–t self, I could be in.”

But finally excepting himself allowed him to be better at his craft, and led him to his dream role, the 2015 NBC series, “A.D. The Bible Continues”.

“Many years later and still justifying my being gay with my critic, I get offered the role of a lifetime: Jesus Christ,” he explained. “Well, you know, of all the people in the world that could play this part, they gave it to me.”

He continued, “So there I am, hanging on the cross… in Morocco… and I look up at the sky, and I think, ‘You could still strike me down with lightning. Are you sure you want me to play your son? Instead, what I felt was an overwhelming feeling of love and acceptance and freedom that I could never even put into words. A message from God? Maybe.”

Season five of “Fuller House” returns to Netflix later this year.
