The actress, who plays Rebecca Pearson on the hit show, recently spoke with ABC News’ “Popcorn with Peter Travers” about the show's never-ending emotional drama, revealing that she sometimes feels a bit annoyed with her TV husband, Jack Pearson (Milo Ventimiglia).
“I’m frustrated with Jack. Why couldn’t he just do it for her?! Goodness! Just take care of the kids,” she joked. “He fell apart, started drinking again. It’s like, come on!”
Despite her feelings, she had nothing but positive things to say about her co-star.
“He’s the guy, I kid you not, who, like, walks around every morning and shakes every crew member’s hand and says hello to everyone,” Moore said of Ventimiglia. “I thought that I was a nice person until I met Milo. And now I’m, like, actually scum of the earth because I don’t go around and shake everybody’s hand.”
Moore also dished on fans' frustrations, revealing that while she understands some fans are upset with her character for pursuing a music career, she doesn't totally agree with them.
“Don’t ever go on Facebook, guys, and read the comments — but there’s so many women who are like, you know, ‘Rebecca has it all. How could she possibly, like, leave her husband and family? Isn’t that like her responsibility — is to them and them alone?’” she said. “And I’m like, we’re in 2017, guys. Women can try and do it all.”
The This Is Us season finale airs Tuesday on NBC.
