The 37-year-old actress and singer, Chrissy Metz, is most famously known for her portrayal of Kate Pearson in the drama series, This Is Us. 


Metz and her partner, Josh Stancil, met on the set of the award-winning show, where Stancil worked as a camera grip. He has since "moved onto another show."

As reported by E-Online, Metz revealed the news on March 30, 2018, when she appeared as a guest on The Wendy Williams Show. Williams wanted to know if the duo was still together. 

Metz replied that she is currently dating herself but explained that she and Stancil parted on good terms and that they are "still friends." 


Metz added that she prefers to remain friends with her former partners because those connections are still important to her, and one doesn't stop caring for someone.

She explained that she simply could not just "dump them off" when a relationship ends. Metz is still friends with her ex-husband too. 

The My Name Is Earl actress tied the knot with British journalist Martyn Eaden on January 5, 2008, in a beachside ceremony in Santa Barbara, California. 


They parted ways five years later, and Eaden filed for divorce in November 2014. The couple cited irreconcilable differences as the reason. 

Their divorce was only finalized a year later in December 2015. Metz described herself as a romantic and recently opened up to People about her divorce. 


"It’s a compromise in any relationship, but that doesn’t mean you have to change who you are. Just because we got married doesn’t mean that we have to miserable trying to fix it.”

When asked if she'd get married again, the actor replied: "maybe, if it's the right person." She added that she would love to meet someone 'organically,' but feels that she isn't in the right headspace.
