Justin Hartley is back in the spotlight making his first public appearance nearly two months after filing for divorce from Chrishell Stause. The “This Is Us” actor joined his fellow co-stars at the Television Critics Association’s winter press tour in Los Angeles on Saturday. Sitting on the panel with the likes of Mandy Moore, Chrissy Metz, and Sterling K. Brown the 42-year-old star looked handsome wearing a tan coat, burgundy button-up shirt, and jeans. He also spoke to the audience about the importance of me-time.
Revealing he’s been practicing self-care more now than ever, Justin Hartley said, “Self-care. It’s good to do, right? We have hectic lives and everyone’s busy and rushing all over the place and trying to occupy space and time and get to the next thing.” He continued by stating, “You have to slow down every once in a while and just kind of realize where you are, appreciate what you’ve done and reflect a little bit and be like, ‘What’s going on here?’ And make sure you’re okay.”
Posing on the red carpet with his “This Is Us” co-stars, the newly single actor was all smiles for his first appearance back in the public’s eye view. He also took to his Instagram story to share a picture with his castmates writing, “Always a good time with the fam.” Saturday’s event comes just days after Justin Hartley made his return to social media. The actor hadn’t posted since November 19, three days prior to filing for divorce from his soap opera star wife.
The former duo, who married in 2017, shocked fans over their sudden split and, according to sources, Justin Hartley and Chrishell Stause were on two separate pages about their future. “Chrishell is really ready to just settle down and be a wife and stay-at-home mom and was hoping to start a family relatively soon,” an insider told People. “Justin wants that but also doesn’t think it has to happen in the near future and is at a point in his career where he wants to really be able to explore all the options that are coming his way.” There is also a dispute between the two on when they actually separated. Justin Harley stated “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split and listed the date of separation as July 8, 2019. In Chrishell’s response, she listed the day he filed for divorce as the actual separation date.
