Milo Ventimiglia’s Reason for Supporting Rebecca and Miguel on ‘This Is Us’ Just Made Us So Emotional

The cast of NBC’s This Is Us are as close off-screen as they are on. Not only do they have a Pearson family group text, but they’re also super supportive of one another’s partners and stand in solidarity with each other no matter what. Now, Milo Ventimiglia (AKA Jack Pearson) is admitting that he even supports the story lines on the show that are tough for fans to watch — namely, the relationship between his on-screen wife and best friend.


“I’m all for it,” he recently told Us Weekly. If you’re not familiar with the show, it depicts various timelines throughout the Pearson family’s life. In the present-day timeline, Jack is dead, and his wife, Rebecca (Mandy Moore), is partnered up with Jack’s longtime best friend, Miguel (Jon Huertas).

“People always sort of raise an eyebrow when they ask me about that,” Ventimiglia continued. “It’s like one of my best friends says, ‘Hey, if anything happens to me, make sure my family is okay.’ I feel like Jack and Miguel were very close friends. Understandably, I feel like there is a duty of friendship.”

The relationship reveal was made way back in the second episode of the first season, and fans were shook. From the very beginning, Jack and Rebecca were the ultimate in couple goals; it wasn’t until the rest of the season unfolded that viewers realized Jack was no longer alive in the present-day Pearson timeline — and that maybe Rebecca and Miguel’s union made more sense than many were willing to admit.

Ventimiglia added that even if he doesn’t get to be in every scene with his on-screen wife anymore, when he does, it’s pure magic. “I feel loved as Jack,” he shared. “She’s the best scene partner you could ever hope to have.” Lucky Miguel!

Ahhh, fall. There are so many things to love about this time of year (give us ALL the sweaters and pumpkin-flavored eats). But, high on the list comes autumn decor candles, throws, textiles — you name it. Of course, buying items and actually adding them to your room are two different things. So we're turning to Instagram for the best styling advice and inspo for the season. Scroll on to see everything you need to get those wheels turning!

@sbkliving: Sometimes, it only takes a chic doormat to transition your front steps for the season. Hello, fall!

@rachelpuccetti: Excuse us while we spend an entire lazy Sunday relaxing in this fall-infused space.

@farmhousetofrills: A monochrome mantel never looked so chic. (That fireplace pumpkin setup is seriously *genius*.)

@faith_hope_home: Greet guests with a fall-themed entrance to set the tone for a day of pumpkin carving or scary movie marathoning.

@simplysoutherncottage: Don't forget about those nooks and crannies! This entryway/mudroom situation is capturing our little harvest-loving hearts.

@6thirtydecor: Speaking of pumpkins, pick up a few extra gourds to pave the way into your cozy autumn abode.

@farmsteadonfirst: That guest bedroom you weren't sure what to do with it? Transform it into a rustic retreat with some fall signage and mustard-yellow and green accents.

@fiddleleafinteriors: We're going to take a second to *swoon* over this adorable kitchen setup. Those farmhouse accents and simple centerpiece setup? We're in love.

@ohmydearblog: Contrary to what you think, florals *aren't* just for spring. Bring them into your abode by selecting buds in moody tones to pay homage to the season.

@simply.mrs.z: Drawn to modern style? Play up the Halloween vibes by picking black, orange and brass accents to rock on places like your bookshelf. (Bonus points for carrying the theme over to your textiles.)

@drivewaytodreams_crystal: We're going to go ahead and give two thumbs up to all of these orange-hued accents. Backdropped with a neutral furnishings and they truly *pop*!

@cripcollectiveig: For those who don't want to go overboard with the "fall stuff" this one will speak to you. Compile a couple of cute throws and a minimalist pumpkin print on your mantle and you're set

@cavcottage: Who said fun pillows were limited to furnishings only? We're ALL about this entry display.

@houseon77th: This daybed setup is a *dream*. But actually, this would be the perfect space to doze off in come the colder days.

@kristenforgione: For a more festive Halloween look, overhaul your living space with a spooky handmade addition like this one. *Googles paper bat DIYs.*
