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.

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.
