Chrissy Metz Reveals Reaction to Hearing About Her 'Sexy' Photo Shoot

This is Us star Chrissy Metz dons a red swimsuit in this photo shoot for HarpersBazaar.com.

Here’s what the 36-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On hearing about the photo shoot: “When I first heard Harper’s Bazaar wanted me to be sexy, I was like, ‘Who, me?’ I knew y’all were edgy but this is incredible—it’s validation.”

On how her self-worth isn’t made by validation: “Like, if I ever end up on the worst-dressed list, it’s not going to make me fall apart. I want to look great and feel good and be comfortable, but at the same time, none of this really matters. This is the fun stuff.”

On the industry being more accepting of all people: “There’s more room for all of us now—no matter our sexuality, race, body size, gender or whatever else.”

    “Industry being more accepting of all people” – really, which industry? Last time I checked Hollywood was mostly fond on white, emaciated and wealthy people. Correct me if I am wrong.

    That Harper’s Bazaar shot is a big step forward but I doubt it’s going to be groundbreaking.

    yeah, let’s celebrate morbid obesity. most men won’t find this sexy and most women don’t want to be obese

    I’m all for loving yourself, confidence, being curvy and all that but this isn’t sexy. This isn’t healthy. This woman is morbidly obese, plain and simple, and nothing about that should be celebrated.

    No, my jaw didn’t drop . . . I just hurled.

    Ugh. Just glanced over article. “Hollywood’s New Pin-up Girl?” That’s baloney. LA is extremely/horribly dictatorial of women’s THIN-ness. If you’re thin enough, you can be anointed. Otherwise? Ms. Metz is an exception on TV. She’s it. No other woman is as morbidly obese on TV without having some sort of hand in Stand-Up or Improv comedy. The Industry will NOT consider other morbidly obese women. so CUT IT OUT, entertainment media! This is BULL-shtein!

    Oh yeah that’s as sexy as genital warts from your belly button to the small of your back.
