Will Chrissy Metz get engaged soon? While she and her boyfriend Josh Stancil are taking things slowly, the This Is Us star’s romance is getting serious!
Metz, who is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actress at this weekend’s Emmy Awards, recently told People that she enjoys living on her own and has no plans to move in with Stancil anytime soon.
“[We are] just enjoying life together,” she said last month. “You know, we work more than we don’t work so when we do get some time with each other, we enjoy it. We went to a Dodgers game [recently] … we’re just living life. I’m not rushing into anything, and I don’t think that when you really care about somebody that you need to.”
Metz met Stancil on the set of the hit NBC series, where he works as a cameraman and she plays Kate Pearson. They started dating last fall and made their public debut at a Screen Actors Guild Award party in January.
“I kind of made the [first] move,” Metz previously told Wendy Williams. “He was eating [with the crew]—I talk to everyone, ’cause I love people, like I don’t care what you do, we’re all the same, we just have different jobs—so I was like,’ Oh my God, he’s really cute,’ so I said, ‘Slow down, you’re gonna choke on your food!’ and he starts cracking up and I was like, ‘Why did I just say that? Why did I just say that? So we just started chatting and it was like instant.”
Since then, Stancil has proven to be the sweetest boyfriend. He even left her a note in her clutch before the Golden Globes that read, “You are already a winner no matter what and I love you.”
Of course, things can get a bit awkward between them on set sometimes, especially when she has to kiss her on-screen fiancé. “Initially, I was like, ‘This is gonna be weird,’ but he was fine with it,” she admitted to Wendy Williams. “And then there was a really big kissing scene Chris [Sullivan] and I did, who plays [Kate’s fiancé] Toby, and he was like, ‘I didn’t like that.’ He was like, ‘Truth be told, that wasn’t my favorite thing.'”
But Stancil and Metz try to keep things as professional as possible. Stancil even volunteered to quit working on This Is Us if things got too weird. But Metz refused to allow that.
“My priority is my job and his priority is his,” she told People in February. “He’s been doing this for many … 15, 16 years, and he even said to me, ‘Listen, if it’s ever weird, I will leave. I will leave the show and go work on another show.’ I’m like, ‘No! Don’t leave the show.’ But I am there as Kate. I’m there to do a job, and it’s never become an issue.”
