'This Is Us' Star Chrissy Metz Says Her Contract Included Mandatory Weight Loss

Chrissy Metz just revealed that her This Is Us contract required her to lose weight…but she didn’t mind!

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!”
