Playing ‘This Is Us’ Star Chrissy Metz Defends Latex Look at MTV Movie and TV Awards: 'It's My Body'

Chrissy Metz was feeling her style at the MTV Movie and TV Awards on Sunday night, and that's all that matters.

The 36-year-old actress hit the stage with her This Is Us co-star, Milo Ventimiglia, wearing a burgundy latex mini-dress and black ballet flats, and received some criticism for her stand-out style.

Metz took to Twitter following the awards show to respond to those negative remarks. "For the record, I wear what I want, when I want," she wrote. "News flash, it's MY body. #thankstho."

It was a fun night for Metz, who presented Best Duo with Ventimiglia, her onscreen father. "You know, Princess, these MTV awards, they were a little different in my day," Ventimiglia said, channeling his This Is Us character, Jack Pearson.

"What are you doing?" Metz quipped to her co-star. "Like, I know that I play your daughter, but you're only three years older than me."

At a Screen Actors Guild Awards party in February, Metz also turned heads when she made her first public appearance with boyfriend Josh Stancil, who works as a cameraman on This Is Us. “I don't know if I should be offended or not because I'm like, Is it because I'm a big girl and you're like, who's her boyfriend? Is he cute? Is he this? Is he that? Is he overweight? Is he tall?'” she told ET exclusively. “I know there's genuine interest and maybe it's my fault because it's been a secret but not intentional.”
