Well, this is pretty rude. Chrissy Metz, in her soon-to-be released memoir, This Is Me: Loving The Person You Are Today, tells a pretty sad story about how a boy she liked during her teenage years (and had shared intimate moments with) would shun her in public. He did this because he didn’t want others judging him for liking someone who didn’t fit in with society’s ideal notion of beauty.

The actress writes about the first boy she fell for, Derek. “Let me tell you, my first kiss with Derek was — to this day! — one of the most amazing kisses, if not the best of my life.”

“The next time we were all at Mya’s his sister, I waited for him to acknowledge me in a real way, not just through his secret signals. When he didn’t, I decided this was what I needed to settle for — a wink here and there. He couldn’t let anyone know he liked the fat girl. Got it.”

Since being thrust in the spotlight with the success of NBC’s This is Us, Chrissy’s weight has been a topic of discussion, and she hasn’t been afraid to open up about her body, and make it known that she embraces her curves, though it took some time.
