This Is Us star filed for divorce from Chrishell Stause nearly a year ago and revealed he is happy with his life.
Justin Hartley opened up while talking on Radio Andy Thursday with Bevy Smith. The actor said he is really happy where he is. He said, “I’m happy with my career. I’m happy with my personal life.” The Young and Restless actor is currently dating his former costar, Sofia Pernas.
The actor revealed that he is healthy, safe, and very thankful. He shared that he does not necessarily mind the attention his personal life gets but he does not encourage it. He said, “If they’re getting entertainment from that, I think it sort of comes with the territory, but I’ve also sort of always had this view that I will have a public life, but I will be very private about my personal affairs.”
The This Is Us star said he thinks people want to know about other people’s personal life but he would caution people. He shared that he alerts his daughter on this all the time. The actor revealed he tells her daughter to not believe everything she reads.
The actor has been private about his personal life and not addressed his split from ex Chrishell Stause. Their breakup was the highlight of the recent season of Selling Sunset as Chrishell claimed she got the news about their divorce via a text.
Justin has been linked to co-star Sofia in May this year after being spotted kissing her while running errands. However, Chrishell had revealed last month that it was painful for her to see the actor move on but she is ready to get back in the game herself.
