Milo Ventimiglia Lets 'This Is Us' Use His Car as a Prop in Exchange for Food for the Crew

We already know just how hard it is to handle any episode of This Is Us, but sometimes there's a happy story to ease the pain the emotional show can cause. In fact, this tale about Milo Ventimiglia, who plays Jack, proves that the behind-the-scenes of the series are just as heartwarming as TIU itself. 

It turns out Milo is actually the nicest person ever. In an interview with Access Hollywood, the actor revealed that he lets the show use his car as a prop in exchange for food for the crew. Be still my heart.

Yes, the Chevelle Jack drives on the show is Milo's car IRL. The crew was apparently looking for a Camaro for Jack when Milo jumped in with a suggestion. He explained, "They were looking for a Camaro and I was like, 'You can’t put Jack Pearson in a Camaro.' I say, 'Well, I have a Chevelle…' And then the transportation guys were like, ‘You know, Milo, your car looks really nice and it’s period correct?’ I said, ‘Yeah, it’s period correct. You want to use my car.''' And just like that, the decision was made.

Milo had one condition, though. He asked that the money the show was going to pay him for using his car go toward food for the crew. "I go, 'Okay, well you can use my car no problem, but whatever you’re going to pay me for it goes back to coffee trucks and burger trucks for the crew. Make it work for the crew.'" Is that not the nicest thing you've ever heard? 

Somehow, hearing this story makes Jack's impending death even worse. Thanks a lot, This Is Us
