Is it possible that Chrissy Metz from This Is Us is a diva? As shocking as it is, that’s exactly what an inside source is claiming about the plus-sided actress.

According to In Touch, This Is Us star Chrissy Metz often snaps at people and pitches a fit that the wardrobe department has a difficult time fitting her.

Chrissy plays in Kate in NBC’s newest hit, This Is Us alongside Mandy Moore, Milo Ventimiglia, Sherling K. Brown, and Justin Hartley. Her character, Kate is a morbidly obese woman that struggles with her self-image. She discovers that one of the reasons why she cannot lose weight is she is holding on to emotional trauma which seems to stem from her father’s sudden death.

“She snaps at makeup people, she won’t take direction,” the inside source tells In Touch. “She has fits because wardrobe has the toughest time fitting her!”

The source claims that her alleged behavior is making the This Is the Us set pretty uncomfortable. Ever since the show was picked up for two more seasons, her ego is “out of control.”

Radar Online learned Metz signed up for the role knowing that she would have to drop a massive amount of weight. At the beginning of the show, she weighed around 400 pounds. This Is Us showrunners wanted her to lose weight at a “believable rate” so the audience would identify with her.

The source revealed that the pressure to lose weight is causing Chrissy to amp up her diva act and her co-stars are at their wits end with her ridiculous demands.
