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.”
