The Sweet Reason ‘This Is Us’ Stars Chrissy Metz & Justin Hartley Brought Young Actors as SAG Awards Dates

Reason number 3,483 the cast of This Is Us is absolutely amazing? They look out for each other, just like a real family.

When stars Chrissy Metz (Kate) and Justin Hartley (Kevin) were invited to the 24th annual SAG Awards on Sunday, they used their plus-ones to make sure their young, on-screen counterparts could attend, too. Aww, you guys, that’s so generous.

Following the event, Hancsicsak took to Twitter to thank Metz for the invitation, writing, “Just want 2 thank Miss @ChrissyMetz again 4 very graciously & selflessly giving up her plus one so I could attend the SAG awards. Some of the kid ensemble didn’t appear in enough episodes 2 qualify, but when the adults found out, they stepped up & offered their plus one. Thank U!”
