'How I Met Your Mother' Stella Actress Still Faces Angry Fans in the Street for Leaving Ted
Despite the hate towards her character for leaving Ted at the altar, the actress insists the show was all "so worth it."
How I met Your Mother's leading character, Ted Mosby, had a pretty long road before he ultimately found his true soulmate, and for a while, it looked like The One could have been Stella Zinman.
It wasn't to be, of course, as she went back to her ex-husband – dumping Ted at the altar, no less – and clearly, the fans aren't over it yet, even after the show ended six years ago.
The Stella actress Sarah Chalke told the Metro, "I still get people get so mad at me for leaving Ted at the altar on social media, and sometimes in the street."

The star revealed she was originally signed for one episode until she was offered a bigger part and was expected to be the mother in the scenario the series wasn't renewed.
Chalke explained, "I was doing Scrubs at the time. We were supposed to be starting our next season of Scrubs the following week."
The actress continued, "So I had this one week off before we started, so I went and did Stella and then they said, 'Can we actually extend this and do more?' Luckily, my boss at Scrubs was very generous to say, 'Yes, we can make it work. We'll just have to kind of schedule it creatively.'"
The 43-year-old added, "I would go to How I Met Your Mother at about 5am for hair and make-up, and then shoot there for about five hours and then I would drive to Scrubs and shoot there till about midnight. It was a busy time and did not involve a lot of sleep! But it was so worth it and I had the best time."
