"It’s difficult. And it’s hard, but listen, I just want to encourage you that you are not the only one and there are lots of us, and we are always stronger together," Bure said on "Unapologetic with Julia Jeffress Sadler.

Bure faced criticism last year after she told the Wall Street Journal that the network’s programming "will keep traditional marriage at the core."

"It's important to me because I want to see better films in entertainment. I grew up in the industry. My father was a superstar in the thirties. I'd like to see movies get better. And we've seen that," Baehr exclusively told Fox News Digital.

"When we started, there was just a handful of movies with faith and values. Last year, in the top ten, 80% had strong faith and values…powerful stories that were extremely patriotic and a lot of them referring to faith. So, we've seen a lot of good changes."
