Best known for her role in This Is Us as the kind, overweight, relatable and talented Kate, today we welcome Chrissy Metz to Sway in the Morning.

From her love life to her past marriage, Chrissy talks about the men she’s attracted to and the different types of jobs she had before becoming an actress (a pre-school teacher, McDonald’s employee and Talent Agent). And since Sway also knew about her love of hip-hop and talent for singing – we put her on the spot and she instantly sang LL Cool J’s “Around the Way Girl.”

Chrissy’s infectious positive energy hasn’t always come easy, she opened up to the squad about dealing with rejection and learning to love her body. Watch below for our feel-good interview with Chrissy Metz, and catch This Is Us on NBC, every Tuesdays at 9/8c‎.
