Chrissy Metz: “I thought I was gigantic. By then the beating had escalated”

38225763-818f-4a35-a086-af229d05bd68-getty-902337914 - Chrissy Metz: "I thought I was gigantic. By then the beating had escalated"

37 year-old This Is Us actress Chrissy Metz recently wrote a memoir where she describes being fat-shamed and physically abused by her stepfather as a child.

On how her stepfather shamed her for her weight:

”My body seemed to offend him, but he couldn’t help but stare, especially when I was eating. He joked about putting a lock on the refrigerator. We had lived with a lack of food for so long that when it was there, I felt like I had to eat it before it disappeared. Food was my only happiness. And so, I began to hide my eating. I’d get up in the middle of the night and eat. I’d sneak food to eat in the bathroom. Cookies, chips. Things I could eat as fast as possible to avoid detection,” she writes. “Things that would give me the brief bliss of numbness.”

On how she was physically abused by her stepfather:

“He sat in a chair next to the scale as I got on. ‘Good God almighty!’ he yelled every single time. The number then was about 140 or 130. Most of my friends weighed about ninety pounds. ‘Why are you getting fatter?’ he demanded. I look at pictures of me from that time, and I would be so fine with being that size now. But I thought I was gigantic. By then the beating had escalated. One time he hit me, and I looked right in his face. If I had a gun, I thought, I would shoot you.”

On weather she currently has a relationship with her abuser:

“We have a relationship now. I do love him and I do care about him.”

… says Chrissy.

Chrissy Metz Brings the Quote of the Day

44BEF71700000578-4922766-This_is_Us_star_Chrissy_Metz_revealed_on_Tuesday_that_she_s_endu-a-76_1506459817690 - Chrissy Metz Brings the Quote of the Day

On being the constant target of weight criticism:

‘There’s been a lot of body-shaming, and a lot of really hateful comments. For me, I can’t take it personally because people’s perception is their reality. They don’t know me and they don’t know my plight, they don’t know my issues – they don’t know who I am. I know that hurt people hurt people. My thing is, I can’t respond with hate or with hurt because it doesn’t help the progression of the growth so I’m always like not even engaging.’

… says the 36 year-old This Is Us star Chrissy.

Chrissy Metz: “For the record, I wear what I want”

Untitled-1-1 - Chrissy Metz: "For the record, I wear what I want"

36 year-old This Is Us actress showed up last night at the MTV Movie & TV Awards, where she wore a midi burgundy latex dress. Shortly after the event, Chrissy was body shamed online by critics, who disliked the star’s outfit of choice. Chrissy replied:

For the record, I wear what I want, when I want. News flash it’s
MY body. #thankstho

Back in March, the actress was quoted saying:

Size doesn’t equate to beauty. I don’t understand why that’s a thing. Well, I do, because the media has told us thin is beautiful. But is it?

Chrissy Metz: “If I had lost weight, I would never have gotten this role”

FFN_vcv_52286131 - Chrissy Metz: "If I had lost weight, I would never have gotten this role"

On wanting to lose weight:

I would love to go on The Biggest Loser, where it’s a concentrated thing. My father is a big guy; he’s had a quadruple bypass surgery, and that’s scary. Those are real things that happen in families with overweight people, and I don’t want that. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve tried [to lose weight]. But if I had, I would never have gotten this role.

On being an emotional eater:

If I’m upset or I have to confront somebody, I’m like, “This feels really icky. Let me have a burrito.” I believe that if we haven’t learned our lessons, they will continue to come and circle back around. Obviously I haven’t figured it out with food.

On dressing up for events:

I’m so grateful for the designers who are excited — I remember growing up and having no options at all — but other designers haven’t really reached out. I don’t know why they think that their clothes lose integrity by being cut bigger. But it’s their art. It would be nice if Valentino was like, “Hey girl, want a dress?”.

On carrying a lot of weight in her stomach:

I just want to have…not even a number, but to have my body in a different shape.

… says 36 year-old Chrissy.

Chrissy Metz Talks about Her Weight Journey: “I lost 100 lbs. in less than five months”

chrissy-metz-weight - Chrissy Metz Talks about Her Weight Journey: "I lost 100 lbs. in less than five months"

The full story from People:

“I’d be getting maybe two auditions a year, and I’d always see the same small group of girls,” says Metz, who was a size 12 when she was first scouted but dropped 50 lbs. at the recommendation of her then-manager before moving to L.A.

With work slow, she took a job as a junior commercial casting agent but says having to backburner her own dreams “was like watching your boyfriend take another woman out every day.”

Depressed and “eating my feelings,” Metz gained more than 100 lbs. before a panic attack on her 30th birthday sent her to the hospital and snapped her back into reality.

She set about overhauling herself physically and emotionally, including following doctor’s orders to lose weight. “I was so gung ho, I lost 100 lbs. in less than five months,” she says. “All I did was eat a 2,000-calorie diet and walk 20 minutes a day.”

As the numbers on the scale fell, Metz regained confidence. Then she landed the recurring part on American Horror Story: Freak Show that would kick-start her career.

Playing a “fat lady” meant stepping into a fat suit. “It was sobering,” she says. “I thought, ‘What if I become that heavy and can’t walk around or get stuck in the doorframe? I was like, ‘I don’t want this for me.’ ”

The role also lead her to This Is Us. Baring her body and stepping on a scale within the first few minutes of the show’s pilot this past September, Metz — through her character — Kate instantly instantly became a fan-favorite.

“You don’t realize that somebody who’s average or even very fit could relate to someone who’s overweight,” she says of the feedback she’s gotten, “but it’s not about our size — it’s how we look at ourselves and how we feel about ourselves.”

As for what’s next, while Metz says she’s taking steps to lose weight, she does make it clear that the stops along her weight loss journey are “not for anybody but myself. … I want to have a fit, healthy body and not have to be put in a box. I don’t want to be limited by anything.”
