‘This Is Us’ star Mandy Moore says she has received ‘very small’ outstanding checks for the show.

Mandy Moore is revealing how much she got in the “This Is Us” streaming deal with Hulu.

Moore — who played Rebecca on the hit NBC series — has expressed support for the SAG-AFTRA strike. In a recent interview, Moore talked about getting an “81 percent” check for the show’s streaming residual deal.

“The rest issue is a huge issue,” Moore told The Hollywood Reporter from the Disney Packet Line in Burbank on Tuesday. She was joined by Katie Lowes as the pair of actors joined the actor’s strike.

“We’re in incredibly fortunate positions because working actors have been on shows that have been huge hits in one way or another … but many actors in our position were able to stay away from us in arrears or at least pay their bills for years,” Moore continued.

Moore told the outlet that he received “very small, like 81 percent checks” for the outstanding “This Is Us” streaming deal. “I was talking to my business manager, who said she received a penny and two in arrears,” she continued.

Lowes — who starred as Quinn Perkins on “Scandal” — echoed Moore’s comments, sharing with the outlet that she hasn’t received “anything significant” from Disney following streaming deals with Netflix and Hulu.

“If you’re somebody who’s been lucky enough to do 120-plus episodes of a hit show over the years — 10, 15, 20 years ago — this rerun will be something that can sustain you through the years where I did this little project or I wanted to do a drama or you have kids and you have a family to provide for,” Lowes said. “And that’s not reality anymore. The whole model has changed.”

Hulu and Netflix did not immediately respond to Fox News Digital’s request for comment.
