Chrissy Metz Defends Chris Sullivan's Fat Suit on 'This Is Us'
The Golden Globe-nominated actress spoke out during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live on Thursday night (February 16) in New York City.
“We tested a lot of gentlemen who were bigger, and I get it. Like, people think the authenticity is kind of ruined by that. But Chris has been heavier, so I think he understands the plight of being overweight,” Chrissy said.
“Also he was the best man for the job. And people wear prosthetics all the time — this happened to be weight as opposed to, like, a nose or a chin,” she added. “It’s just kind of the name of the game.”
