Aw! Chrissy Metz Talks Real-Life Weight Loss Journey and Her New Boyfriend

This Is Us star Chrissy Metz, who battled body image problems for years, is talking about her experience so far in the acting world.

Metz’s character, Kate, nixes the idea of elective gastric bypass surgery and opts to join a weight loss camp instead. The actress had said last fall that when she got the part, she was told her character slims down. In January, she denied rumors she had gotten gastric bypass surgery.

“I think it’s a coincidence that I booked—well, maybe not a coincidence—that I booked a role that’s so similar to who I am and when that was obviously posed to me as, maybe this character’s going to be on a weight loss journey, I was like, ‘Oh! That’s convenient. Okay! I could do that too,'” Metz, 36, said on The Wendy Williams Show Friday.

“But I’m also at the place where I accept myself for who I am so I now can get to the place I want to be,” she added.

Metz said she was a lot like Kate when she was younger, before she was secure with who she is and “really knew that our bodies don’t define us—they just happen to be our vessels.”

“Kate was me probably about nine years ago, when I first moved to L.A. and so of course I have similarities,” she said. “But there are a lot of differences as well.”
