'This Is Us' Star Chrissy Metz Says Her Contract Included Mandatory Weight Loss
When the 36-year-old actress signed on for the show, she understood that her character was going to go through a weight loss transformation, which meant she would have to as well!
“In our contract, it did state that that would be a part of it, to lose the weight in the trajectory of the character as she comes to find herself. That was a win-win for me. Because it’s one thing to try to do it on your own. But as human beings, it’s an ego thing: We’re more likely to do something for someone else,” she explained to TVLine.
Chrissy later added, “I just have to be very clear. Whether or not I lose weight or stay the same, it’s purely a choice of mine for health. Not because I think that plus size, curvy, voluptuous, big bodies aren’t attractive — because I think they’re awesome and sexy!”
