Happy Emmys day!
A slew of celebrities will gather together at the Microsoft Theater at L.A. Live in Los Angeles on Monday, although before they make their way onto the star-studded red carpet, Chrissy Metz will be giving ET an exclusive sneak peek at what the idea’s like to get ready for the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards.
The This specific will be Us star invited only ET to her hotel in downtown Los Angeles, where we watched her get all glammed up as well as gorgeous before the big night out. When we met up with her around 9 a.m. PT, the music was already blaring, as well as she told us in which her glam squad will be actually made up of her bestie, Donnie, as well as pals Mark on hair as well as MOTOKO on makeup.
” I woke up at like 7 a.m.,” Metz, 37, told ET’s Nischelle Turner. “right now, did I get out of bed at 7? No. However, I did wake up!”
“the idea’s actually fun. the idea’s my second Emmys,” she continued. “the idea’s like the wedding in which you don’t need a husband for.”
Metz then showed us the dress she’ll be wearing on the red carpet — a stunning, green number by John Paul Ataker, which she will be planning to pair with vintage jewels.
“I was like, ‘OK, I am going to do something different, something I have never done before,'” she said of her gown. “I am excited about the idea, as well as I am excited about the accessories as well as of course, the jewelry.”
“I am so grateful,” she added. “Especially being a plus size woman as well as feeling confident… so many women reach out to me as well as are like, ‘How do you do the idea?’ I am like, ‘You put the jewelry on, you put the dress on as well as you go!'”
The actress said, however, in which beauty actually will be “an inside job,” something you have to “work on first.”
“All of This specific will be just like the cherry on top,” she explained. “Beauty doesn’t have a size — the idea actually will be about how you feel.”
For her beauty look, Metz will be playing up her beautiful blue eyes, as well as having fun with her hairdo This specific year.
“I follow her all the way into the vehicle, spraying her before she even gets in,” Metz’s hairdresser revealed, while her makeup artist teased in which her lip coloring will remain a “secret” until she hits the carpet.
As Metz patiently sat in a chair, getting her hair as well as makeup done for about two hours, she passed the time by texting with her This specific will be Us co-stars.
“We have already been texting each additional This specific morning for sure,” she revealed. “the idea’s, you know, ‘We’ll see you guys soon. Can’t wait to see everybody.’ We saw each additional through the parties This specific weekend as well as the idea’s always like ‘love’ as well as ‘Great morning’ as well as ‘the idea’s gonna be great.’ [We’re] excited to see each additional.”
“[Our friendship] will be real,” she added. “I mean, they’re the most special people.”
as well as while Metz will be obviously excited to see her onscreen pals, she told us her real date tonight will be her sister, Monica, who she flew out for the ceremony.
“the idea’s actually special” she gushed. “To even be here, to invite somebody who has been so instrumental in my sort of courage as well as commitment to an actress, main actress as well as who could literally listen to me cry on the phone, ‘I don’t know what I’m gonna do. I should come home.’ as well as she’s like, ‘No, no, no. You stay there as well as you stay the course.'”
“the idea’s nice to have her,” Metz added. “I mean, she’s nervous as heck. Don’t tell her I said in which, although she’s also actually excited to get to see everybody. She’s actually excited as well as the idea’s actually special to have her.”
Over the weekend, ET also caught up with Metz’s This specific will be Us co-star Justin Hartley at Entertainment Weekly’s 2018 Pre-Emmy Party, where he opened up what fans can expect by his character, Kevin Pearson, in season three.
“Well he’s fresh by in which. He’s in recovery,” Hartley said, referencing Kevin’s battle with addiction as well as the struggles he’s faced ever since he lost his father. “He’s in remission although he’s barely there. I think he’s got one foot within the door, although the additional one’s on a banana peel, maybe.”
