Lori Loughlin gave federal prosecutors a close-up in court on Wednesday — shaking hands with each of them before her hearing in the $25 million college admissions scam.
The fired “Fuller House” actress flashed a 1,000-watt smile as she approached the prosecution table around 2:30 p.m.
All four feds shook hands with Loughlin, who faces up to 20 years in prison for allegedly paying $500,000 to get her daughters fraudulently admitted to USC as recruits for the women’s crew team.
Loughlin’s husband, designer Mossimo Giannulli, is also charged in the case.
Despite her show of friendliness inside the Boston federal courthouse, Loughlin ignored about a dozen, young female fans who shouted, “We love you, Lori!” while holding up paper cutouts of her face as she left following the brief hearing.
She and her hubby — who were surrounded by deputy US marshals, a beefy Homeland Security agent and at least one private bodyguard — both hopped into a waiting black SUV and were driven off.
Loughlin and Giannulli were among 13 parents who appeared in court on Wednesday.
The others included “Desperate Housewives” star Felicity Huffman, who’s accused of paying $15,000 to have her daughter’s SAT exam doctored to boost the score by 400 points.
