She was abused by her stepdad

The actress who got candid on how she found love at the age of 38, said she met through direct message on Instagram.

She said:

I know, cute, right? As the kids say, ‘He slid into the DMs. I get thankfully a lot of messages and I don’t always get to see them all. “He had messaged a couple of times, very sweet but not obnoxious or weird.

Chrissy continued:

And then I was like, ‘Let me see if he’s cute. Oh, he’s cute! Okay, I guess I can respond.’ But I waited a little bit because you can’t be an eager beaver. And then I responded, and then we just sort of hit it off.

Chrissy on self-acceptance
