“This Is Us” stars Chrissy Metz, Susan Kelechi Watson and Mandy Moore cover the November 2018 issue of Glamour Magazine photographed by Victor Demarchelier and styled by Alison Edmond.
“People who’ve never been overweight don’t understand what it all entails. They think you’re just sitting in the corner and all you do is eat,” she says. “My thing is, Let’s get to the real issues—because the food is the symptom; it’s not the issue. Everyone’s filling a void with something.”
“There are so many times in my life that I didn’t express how I felt,” she says. “Now I really try to remember, ‘OK, Chrissy, this is your life, and you are entitled to do what you want.’”
“It’s always really cool as an actor to have a character that people want to see the best for,” Watson says. “To know that people are behind her, to know that people are rocking with her and get her.”
“As a black woman in a world that has to try to invalidate me, I just wasn’t having it,” Watson says of her advocacy work. “Everybody has a purpose. Everybody has a validity.”
“I’ve never been a part of something that means so much to the outside world,” Moore says. “It means just as much to all of us.”
“This Is Us has allowed me to show people that I’m not perpetually stuck in the realm of teen romantic comedies,” she says. “I’m a woman now. I’ve been married and divorced. I’ve had ups and downs, professionally and personally.”
