Did Chrissy Metz Lose a Lot of Weight on ‘This Is Us’?

Ever wonder what the stars of This Is Us are doing now? Wonder no more. Here’s a roundup of everything they’ve been up to since the last time you checked in on them.

They’re Actors, First And Foremost

While the spotlight often shines on their famously handsome co-stars, it’s the women of This Is Us that really steal the show. From the moment we meet Kate Upton in the pilot, we see that she is a force to be reckoned with. Born and raised in Michigan, she is the complete opposite of the cool, California lifestyle that Milo and Jack embrace. Even before the cameras start rolling, she’s made an impression on the whole clan. She brings a feisty attitude and a killer instinct to the table that will prove to be a valuable addition to the family.

They’re Actors, But Also Models And Entrepreneurs

Before she became an actor, Chrissy Metz worked as a model and a waitress. It was her acting debut that put her on the map. We first meet Chrissy in the pilot episode when she plays Kate Upton’s best friend. She goes on to appear in several episodes as a guest star and then is cast as the lead in the next season. By the end of the first season, she’s made quite the name for herself and become one of the prominent faces of the show. Even before the show began, Chrissy was making headlines for all the right reasons. In 2015, she was named the face of Marc Jacobs’ spring 2016 advertising campaign and then went on to appear in several more advertisements for the iconic fashion house. She also launched her own fragrance, Metz, which is now sold at Macy’s and other major department stores. It’s been a successful run for the former model and chef. As of 2018, she is a prominent spokeswoman for Oliva, along with her This Is Us co-star, Mandy Moore.

They Like To Shop

While some stars use their time off to rest and relax, the shopping-obsessed stars of This Is Us go above and beyond. Even before the show began, Kate Upton was determined to prove that Michigan isn’t really cold. After wrapping up filming on the series, she headed to Canada to spend some quality time with her family and also to fulfill her fashion needs. Naturally, she took the opportunity to shop for expensive clothing. In one instance while in Canada, she was seen getting a full makeover and spent a small fortune. It’s fair to say that Canadian shoppers can definitely complain about being overcharged, but it’s also a testament to how much the woman loves to shop. Since the show began, Kate Upton has proven herself to be a bit of a fashion icon and often gets recognized for her style choices. While in Toronto for the premiere of This Is Us, Kate Upton bought several dresses and a top hat for her mom. She also picked out an outfit for herself that consisted of a white shirt and grey skinny jeans. Even now, six seasons later, Kate Upton continues to be seen in all black, white and beige – the classic women’s attire of today. You’ll usually see her wearing a classic white shirt with black or beige skinny jeans. The fashion choices of Kate Upton and her This Is Us co-stars are often inspirational and prove that you can always be stylish no matter what time of day it is.

They Have A Napkin Ring Brand

While some stars like Jennifer Lopez and Gabrielle Union have been in the business for years, the younger generation is hoping to make their mark on the industry. Just like with Kate Upton and her fashion choices, we meet Megan Rapateau in the pilot episode as she tries to make a name for herself. She’s a waitress who is determined to show everyone that she’s more than capable of doing the job. After wrapping up on the series, she was offered a spot on an online shopping channel where she discussed fashion and lifestyle. Naturally, she took the opportunity and now hosts a weekly fashion show, Megan’s Monday, on the channel. She also has a fashion newsletter, which she shares with her fans. While on the subject of fashion, it’s hard to forget about this young star and what she did with her napkin ring. Before the series began, she was often spotted with a napkin ring on her right hand. After a while, she began to use it as a necklace. Since the show began, Megan has been seen wearing her napkin ring nearly every day. Some of her favorite outfits include a red silk dress with a white collar, a white dress with a red tie and a black dress with white flowers. Like her fellow co-star, Mandy Moore, Megan seems to favor high quality accessories and clothing. In 2018, she was seen wearing a multi-colored Michael Kors handbag and matching shoulder bag. She also has her own collection of jewelry, which she shares on social media. You can’t help but notice her when she walks in a room. She has a unique and distinctive air about her that makes her feel like a celebrity even when she’s dining with her family at home. Megan is definitely someone to keep an eye out for in the future as she makes her mark on the world of fashion.

They Like To Host Events

While some stars prefer to stay low-profile and out of the spotlight, the hosts of This Is Us love to be seen and be a part of the community. After wrapping up on the series, co-star Chrissy Metz started a nonprofit organization called The Kindness Project, which provides free blankets and pillows to women and children in need. The blankets are embroidered with the faces of famous people, including the stars of This Is Us. The blankets were originally created as fun, personalized presents for Chrissy’s fans. In time, she started collecting the blankets for families that could not afford them. While in Toronto for the premiere of This Is Us, Chrissy surprised fans with a visit and donated blankets to those in need. She continued to be a presence at different events and fundraisers throughout the city. In 2018, she was a guest speaker at the United Way’s annual New York City fundraising gala.

They Travel The World

While some stars prefer to keep a low profile, the globe-trotting stars of This Is Us can’t help but draw attention to themselves. Starting with the pilot episode, this group of stars is determined to prove that Michigan isn’t actually cold. After wrapping up on the series, Randall Park set himself on a course to visit every country in Europe. His trip was inspired by the series and he even brought his cameraman, Jeevan Kulbunchian, with him to document the journey. In the first episode of the next season, we find Randall Park in Madrid, Spain, where he attempts to find a sense of harmony between his Jewish heritage and his new lifestyle in Spain. After wrapping up on the series, he set his sights on a journey around the world and is now in Kathmandu, Nepal, where he is exploring the country and its people. While in Spain, he discovered that many people didn’t know what a Jew was and so he started a new Instagram account, where he shares pictures and videos from his travels. In Nepal, he is documenting the culture and the locals’ reactions to him discovering his Jewish roots. It’s been a glorious voyage for the former child star. He still travels the world regularly, sharing pictures and videos of his latest adventures. Here’s to you, Randall. May your travels and your Instagram account inspire many. Keep sharing.

They’re all beautiful, bright and successful women that you’ll be inspired by. Whether you agree with their style choices or not, you’re guaranteed to walk away with a smile on your face.
