The star of the TV show “This Is Us,” Chrissy Metz is one of the rising talents in Hollywood, whose net worth is about to increase during next few years.
Chrissy Metz – private life
Hollywood has specific standards. Young actresses are mostly beautiful and flawless, marked as sex symbols. This also applies to older generations of actresses who try hard to stay young and desirable forever. Being overweight doesn’t fit the Hollywood criteria. Well, Chrissy Metz, the lovely thirty-seven-year-old star of “This Is Us” is a proof that you can succeed even if you don’t have the ideal body size. Chrissy Metz was born in America but spent part of her childhood in Japan, and after her parents divorced, she lived with her mother and a new family in Florida. Recently, her family discovered that Chrissy Metz was a victim of peer violence. Because of her appearance, children called her various names, and Metz admitted that she suffered a lot because of that. However, the Metz’ family is proud that the young actress managed to get out of it without consequences and that she succeeded on the big screen as part of a popular TV show. They also revealed that Chrissy Metz didn’t change at all and that she’s still a simple, good girl from the neighborhood.
Metz’s love life
Chrissy Metz was married to journalist Martyn Eaden and had no children. The two met in 2008 when Metz was still unknown to the public. They filed for divorce after 6 years of marriage and neither of them gave any reason for the separation. Although the divorce was relatively peaceful, Metz’ ex-husband did not agree to pay monthly support for his wife, saying that she had a higher income than him. Although without scandals, the entire divorce process was stressful for Chrissy Metz, who admitted Martyn Eaden was her first love. Even Metz’ mother admitted that her daughter suffered after the separation and that her ex-son-in-law was a good man. However, it seems that Metz moved on, as she’s now dating Josh Stancil, meaning that the painful period is behind her.
Chrissy Metz – career and net worth
The beginning of Chrissy Metz’ career was not easy, and she knew what to expect in Hollywood. When she moved from Florida to Los Angeles, Metz got herself an agent, but there were no job offers. Although she did not want to give up on her dream, the young actress realized that she had to start making money as soon as possible, so Metz started working for her agent as an assistant. She proved to be a good talent scout, and as her career developed, she worked on several scouting companies. In several interviews, Metz acknowledged that sometimes extremely non-talented people, who paid well, came to her. Then she had to find them a good job, although she knew that even she would do better than them.
Metz checked herself for a TV show audition
Still, Chrissy Metz waited for her chance, and it finally came in 2014. At the audition for “American Horror Story – The Freak Show,” she checked herself in, and she got the role of Ima ‘Barbara’ Wiggles in 5 episodes of the popular series.
After that, she got an opportunity that changed her life. In 2016, she got one of the lead roles in the TV show “This Is Us” where her character, Kate Pearson, soon became one of the public’s favorites. Due to its uniqueness, the series was very well received by the audience. Currently, NBC negotiates buying several more seasons of “This Is Us.” Chrissy Metz has been nominated twice for a Golden Globe for her role of Kate in “This Is Us.” This year she got a nomination for the Emmy PrimeTime Award for Best Performance by an actress in a supporting role. Considering how popular this TV show is with the audience, there are good odds for Chrissy Metz to win the Golden Globe next year. The net worth of this young actress is not estimated yet because she hasn’t achieved more noticeable roles yet besides the abovementioned TV shows. But there’s no doubt that Metz’ net worth is going to rise in the near future.
Chrissy Metz’ struggle with weight loss
Since an early age, Chrissy Metz was chubby. Due to specific hormonal disorders, she was unable to lose weight. When she moved to Los Angeles, it was harder for her to fight obesity. Metz knew that she wouldn’t become an actress if she didn’t take care of her looks. And Metz is still aware of that. Before she moved from Florida, Chrissy Metz managed to lose almost 50 pounds, but due to the lack of work, she quickly fell into depression and returned to her initial weight plus an extra 50 pounds. Metz’ fight with obesity persists even today with more or less success. Although she began to succeed on the small screen, Chrissy Metz admitted that she was fighting a daily battle with her weight loss in terms of her private life. It’s not easy for her, but she has set her own goal to accomplish. We believe her because Metz gained the sympathies of the audience, and apart from the acting, she showed that she’s grounded and modest. Chrissy Metz, we wish you all the luck!
