Mandy Moore is back in the game and how! With a hit show and a new fiancé, she seems to be on the roll.
While talking to PEOPLE, Moore said, “I’m more grateful than I ever have been in my life.” “It’s a very happy time.”
She went on to talk about her personal and professional low. “I had a few years of just unhappiness,” the Walk to Remember actor discloses.
“From a career perspective, I felt like I was barely treading water. I was really discouraged and dismayed at the sort of opportunities that weren’t presenting themselves any longer. That coincided with my personal life not being in a great place.”
Mandy Moore was previously wed to rocker Ryan Adams for six years. They got divorced in 2015.
When Moore realized she was heading towards doom, she set her foot down. “I stopped, I regrouped, I got myself better situated, and six months later [This is Us] came around. And I was ready for it,” she said.
Talking about the show ‘This Is Us’, she says, “I’ve never been part of a project where [fans] are so willing to be vulnerable and talk about their lives. It’s pretty mind-boggling. And [the cast] is one big family. We all dig in and do the work and connect to it every single day. Every day I drive into work I’m like, ‘Thank you, universe!’”
Moore can’t stop thanking the social media for introducing her to her now fiancé Taylor Goldsmith, frontman of the band Dawes.
Moore revealed, “I took a picture of their album and posted it on Instagram.” “Somehow, Taylor saw it and sent a note to me. We started emailing back and forth, then we went on a date and the rest is history. Thanks, Instagram, for helping me meet my fiancé!”
Divulging into the details of their relationship, she says, “We spent hours FaceTiming each other.” “We fell in love before we’d even really held hands or kissed or anything. It was great.”
The couple who got engaged in September is not planning an OTT ceremony for their wedding. “We are both pretty quiet, private people,” says Moore. “I never imagined myself with some beautiful dress in front of 300 people. It will be quiet and private — just for us.”
When Mandy Moore can find her love on Instagram, there’s plenty of hope for singles who haven’t found love in this hopeless place!
