A HARD-KNOCK CHILD­HOOD

NW - - This Week Big Questions -

WEIGHT WOES While her fuller fig­ure helped make her a house­hold name – “If she lost all that weight, she couldn’t play Kate,” says Cray­ton – Chrissy has al­ways had a love-hate re­la­tion­ship with her body.

Cray­ton says she con­stantly wor­ried about her weight grow­ing up and even sought help from a doc­tor. How­ever, “We never put any pres­sure on her to eat dif­fer­ently or work­out,” he says. “It’s hered­i­tary.”

DADDY DRAMA Chrissy hasn’t seen her bi­o­log­i­cal fa­ther, Mark Metz (left) for two years, but he de­nies ever aban­don­ing his daugh­ter.

“She never reaches out – I’ve called her, I’ve left voice­mail mes­sages, con­tacted her on Face­book,” says the Navy vet, who blames Chrissy’s mother Denise for the on­go­ing fam­ily rift. Still, Mark’s proud of what Chrissy’s achieved.

“She’s done well in Hol­ly­wood, she al­ways did well in school, she was the smartest out of all of my kids,” he says.
