“This Is Us” star Chrissy MetzÂ needed a wheelchair for a bum knee … NOT because she underwent gastric bypass surgery.
Chrissy was in a wheelchair Tuesday at LAX … because she hurt her knee in Florida during Xmas. She has some lingering pain but should be at full strength in a few days.
The wheelchair suggested she might’ve actually gone through with the surgery … after her character, Kate Pearson, vowed in the last episode to have gastric bypass. Her people tell us she absolutely did not have gastric bypass. Â
Chrissy’s people tell us the bum knee shouldn’t impact shooting the show, or this weekend’s Golden Globes, where she’s nominated for Best Supporting Actress.
