Do you watch This Is Us? Chrissy Metz, who plays Kate on the show, is making headlines for revealing certain details to her contract. According to Cosmopolitan, the 37-year-old actress is required to lose weight per her contract. Metz says it’s part of her character arc, and she’s completely okay with it. Part of Kate’s story on the show is dealing with weight loss and overeating.
She says “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 also says “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.”
