It’s hard to overstate the impact that Mandy Moore had on 2000’s era pop culture. Whether you recognized her from her pop hits “Candy” or “I Wanna Be With You” or from her iconic roles in movies like “The Princess Diaries,” “A Walk To Remember,” and “Saved!”: if you were growing up in the aughts, you knew her by name. But that’s just a fraction of her story.
Although her acting career steadily progressed over the years, for some time Mandy’s musical output mostly stopped. Last year, she revealed to the New York Times that musician Ryan Adams, her now ex-husband, had held her music career hostage for years. She stood in solidarity with a group of fellow women who told their stories of similar mistreatment. Although she had spent far too long being pushed out of recording studios and denied opportunities to create music, her honesty and courage ultimately paid off: this year, she released “Silver Landings,” her long-awaited seventh studio album.
Today, Mandy is in touch with her voice, which is evident through her evolved style of folk-rock-pop music. She continues to shine as an actor with her role on the critically-acclaimed show “This Is Us,” and she uses her platform to advocate for women everywhere. So whether you know her from then or now, you know that she’s not going to stop making her mark anytime soon. We got the chance to chat with Mandy about her career, her self-care, and how she’s managed to reclaim her power.
