Later, Metz also appeared in the America sitcom, All of Us, created by Will Smith, Jada Pinkett and Betsy Borns.
She soon welcomed Hollywood after being cast in a romantic comedy movie, 'Loveless in Los Angeles' directed by Archie Gips in 2007.

Her ex husband Martyn Eaden
Chrissy Metz' ex husband, Martyn Eaden is a copywriter. Martyn Eaden has written the short, 'spurned' in 2016 and 'Death Factory' in 2014. They met and married in 2008. Although Martyn Eaden is not well known in Hollywood and likes to keep his life very private, his ex wife gained a lot of momentum with her drama series, 'This Is Us'.
Martyn Eaden was an ordinary man earning a middle class income when he met his wife. Metz gained recognition as the overweight actress in 'This Is Us'. Her role in the show has opened many debates and discussions about obesity and the problem of weight loss amongst women. She has become a Hollywood starlet since her show first premiered. It is still not confirmed whether the divorce was due to her overnight success but today, Chrissy Metz continues to rise in Hollywood.
She managed to cast a very strong image of her character via her show. But at the same time, her personal life seemed to go in for a toss. As she made her Hollywood dreams successful, her marriage started failing miserably.
Martyn Eaden filed for divorce after stating that the couple's relationship could not be repaired or saved due to irreconcilable differences. He even declared that there would be no spousal support. He requested to be granted the sole ownership of their vehicle and personal bank accounts. Even after he filed the petition, Metz continued to ignore his petition thinking that all will get fine between them until the court agreed to Eaden's petition finally in 2015.
Chrissy Metz has never commented on their divorce or on her ex husband publicly. She did not even make any attempt to accept or deny any allegations made by her husband. Chrissy's mother had publicly commented once saying that Chrissy was badly hurt when she broke up with her husband just before she gained fame. Her mother added that Martyn was her first love and she was devastated. 'I remember when Chrissy told me they had broken up, but she never really went into why they split, and that was her business,' her mom said. Currently, Chrissy Metz and ex husband Martyn Eaden are living a much more content life away from one another.
Chrissy Metz has moved on in her life since her divorce. She has begun dating again and continues to play her role in 'This Is Us'.
