Chrissy Metz gives us an inside look at her “Halloween-themed” purse from Proenza Schouler — and you might be surprised at some of the items she keeps tucked away.

“It’s sturdy, folks. It’s real sturdy in case you needed to know,” Metz, 43, exclusively tells Us Weekly, while promoting her new children’s album Prayed For This Day. The This Is Us alum also reveals that she often carries multiple small bags inside of her bigger bag when she travels: “Do people do this? So, there’s a bag within a bag, within a purse, within a bag.”

Red Leather Zip Wallet With Passport and ID Cards

“I have my SAG-AFTRA card, I got my CVS card,” she explains, adding that she also has a card for the “Good Dog Clubs” for when she gets treats for her dog Mable.


“I just love things from the earth. I know that sounds so hooky, kooky,” Metz tells Us. “Some of them are grounding crystals. And I’ve been told that when we travel and we’re on a plane, that it’s important to have something from the earth to sort of ground us. So wherever I’m traveling to, I also like to put my feet on the ground once I get there. Who knows? It works for me.”

NYX Butter Gloss in Creme Brulee

“If I go to any store that has this brand, I will buy every single one,” she gushes, clarifying that “you never know when they’re going to discontinue.”
