Chrissy Metz on American Horror Story

Chrissy Metz says This Is Us changed her life

Chrissy Metz says This Is Us changed her life

"I kept auditioning, with no savings and no money, credit card debt gaining interest". "Sometimes I cry on the way to the set still".

Raised by a single, working mother in Homestead, Florida, Metz says she knew from a very early age what it was like to go without.

'I remember when Chrissy told me they had broken up, but she never really went into why they split, and that was her business, ' her mom said.

It should also be noted that prior to booking her current show, she had a small recurring role on "American Horror Story: Asylum".

As Kate in This Is Us, Chrissy Metz deals with her share of emotional turmoil. The 36-year-old This Is Us star said after her parents divorced when she was 8-years-old, money was tight, food was scarce, and there were times she anxious that the electricity in her family's house would be shut off. And yes, she still lives with her roommate, despite her success. "I'm so convinced I shouldn't have bought them, I still haven't busted them out of the box".

"I've had women - average women, older women, teenagers - who say to me, 'Your role and this show has changed my life.' That makes all the struggle, all the ramen noodles, all the times when I couldn't pay my bills, all the times where I was like, 'I can't do this, ' worth it". "People who supported me were like, 'If you don't have money for food, I'll cook you dinner". I bought ramen noodles at dollar stores. "And three months ago I finally paid my credit cards off!" You don't have money for acting class? As I got older, that turned into, 'Oh, I'm happy-let's celebrate and eat.

Chrissy has now become the breakout star of the show.

Take a look at the video below to see Chrissy Metz talking about the tough road that led her to This Is Us.
