Full House star Dave Coulier is finally speaking out about inspiring Alanis Morissette's bitter, break-out hit "You Oughta Know."

The comedian told the Calgary Herald that he dated the much-younger singer-songwriter – but that he had no idea she planned to take their breakup public.

When he first heard the song, "I said, 'Wow, this girl is angry,' " he recalled. "And then I said, 'Oh man, I think it's Alanis.' ... I listened to the song over and over again, and I said, 'I think I have really hurt this person.' "

But there's no lasting animosity, he said – adding that the exes even decided to meet up once.

"We saw each other and hung out for an entire day," he said. "And it was beautiful. It was one of those things where it was kind of like, 'We're good.' "
