Bravely facing her insecurities, Chrissy reveals painful moments from her past. Poor body image, abandonment, finding relationships, and lack of love are just a few of the things Ms. Metz opens up about in This Is Me.
“I’ve found a lot of freedom in speaking my truth. It’s really hard and it’s scary because you’re vulnerable, but I think the past two years of my life have been so well-received because [the way I play Kate Pearson] and the way that I try to live my life is through vulnerability.” – Source: People
