This Is Us star Chrissy Metz might star in one of the biggest, most popular shows on television now, but she has been very open in the past about what it was like growing up in poverty. She opened up in Glamour about often going without basic necessities:
"I’d be nervous walking home from elementary school, thinking, If that red tag from the power company saying our lights are turned off is on the door handle, I don’t know what I’ll do.
And there were nights my mom wouldn’t eat dinner. She’d be like, 'Oh, I’m not hungry.' I knew she was giving up food to make sure we could eat, but when you’re 9 or 10 years old, you can’t help."
