I have decided not to make a new gallery so that I can update regularly. I will just replace some captures and photos with better quality pictures. To start with… I am working on catching the gallery up with the latest event photos.

Hello, my name is Samantha. I am the new owner of Mandy Moore Central. I am a huge fan of Mandy. I ran my own site for her back in 2004 (it was called American Beauty). My friend Kate will also be helping out. So you will now see regular updates here! We have a gorgeous new layout! The header was designed by Kimberly and coded by me. I am working on a new gallery so the old one will no longer be updated. You can still view it here though. I will also be going through our entire site and re-do all of our site pages! This site has had quite a few previous owners and all will be credited on our credits page soon. Thank you so much for visiting and please check back for updates!

Mandy Moore Chats With Glamour About Her Partnership With Dove (And Her Beauty Faves Too!)

For the record, I love everything about Dove, especially since they launched that amazing ‘Real Women’ campaign back in 2004. It’s nice to see a mega brand take such a strong stance on uplifting everyday women—and bringing celebs on board with them. Like Mandy Moore, who serves as the spokesperson of their newest campaign, “Women Who Should Be Famous”, which introduces new real women role models that girls can (and should) look up to. I chatted with the singer-actress-designer-philanthropist about her involvement with the initiative—learn more about it here—and of course I snuck in a few beauty questions too!

How does it feel to be the spokesperson for Dove’s Self-Esteem Movement? What inspired you to sign on?
I’ve always loved Dove’s focus on real women and really share in their spirit and commitment to inspiring all women and girls to reach their full potential. Dove believes that all real women who are positive role models should be famous and I’m proud to be a part of movement that offers a different POV on “celebrity” by widening the definition of who we consider famous.

Mandy to collaborate with husband

(CBS News) When Mandy Moore sits down to write her next album, she won’t be alone.

Her husband, singer-songwriter Ryan Adams, will likely be along for the ride. The couple, who wed in 2009, recently started collaborating for the follow-up to Moore’s 2009 release, “Amanda Leigh.”

“I’m probably going to work with my husband on this album,” Moore told “I’m not sure necessarily in what capacity, but we’ve been writing a little bit together. He has a studio, so I definitely want to make my record there.”

Since her last studio release, Moore, 28, voiced a character and recorded songs for the 2010 animated film “Tangled.” She also performed the Oscar-nominated track, “I See the Light,” at the 2011 Academy Awards ceremony.

“There’s a lot to say and a lot that’s happened to me in the last three or so years since the last record’s come out,” Moore explained. “So I have been writing a lot and it’s definitely going to be an intense, emotional record. I’m excited about it. I’m excited to get into the studio and start recording.”

As for the album’s sound, Moore said she’ll follow the path she’s been forging on the last couple of albums. She’s also expanded her musical palette, thanks to Adams.

“He certainly inspires me,” Moore said of her husband. “There’s tremendous influence right now around the house — from the music I’ve been introduced to, and being very happy and in a healthy, happy relationship. I think that still garners a lot of material to write about.”

Although Moore is focused on music at the moment, she hasn’t forgotten about her acting career. Moore, who’s appeared in “Princess Diaries,” “License to Wed” and “A Walk to Remember,” wants her next film role to feel “organic” and “right.”

“I like to have my plate as full as possible. I also try to be picky and choosy and find things that are going to help you grow and evolve and challenge you,” she said. “If projects don’t really fit that kind of criteria then I’m happy to try to be as patient as possible and wait for the right things to come along.”

For now, that “right thing” is music. Moore told she’s eager to get the album done and released by the end of 2012 or early 2013.


mandy felt uncomfortable about her body

Mandy Moore used to be uncomfortable in her own skin.


The ‘A Walk To Remember’ star spoke about how grateful she is to have had parents who reminded her she was beautiful as an adolescent.

She said: ‘Growing up I’m 5’10 and I sort of went through that awkward stage as a kid and was incredibly uncomfortable in my skin and felt very awkward about my height.

‘My mum who is 5’2 would always impress upon me how I should stand tall with my shoulders back and be proud of my height. It was something she really envied but I guess it was a reminder of the grass is always greener. I felt very lucky to have that kind of role model in my life at an early age.’

The face of Dove’s new self-esteem campaign continued to explain why she is excited about representing normal women.

She added: ‘I’ve always been a fan of Dove’s campaign around real women and the fact that they are very committed to inspiring women to reach their full potential.

‘What I love about having this opportunity and being able to use my voice behind movement such as this is the idea that there are so many real women out there who deserve to be famous. Through this campaign we’re beginning to highlight a different definition of what being a role model can be.’

Mandy Talks TRON and possible Tangled Sequel
Posted by Fay on May 29, 2012 • Leave a message? / No Comments

The animated series TRON: Uprising, debuting with a special preview on the Disney Channel on May 18th before premiering on Disney XD on June 7th, takes place after the 1982 feature film and before the events in TRON: Legacy. Produced in CG animation with a 2D aesthetic, the series follows the heroic journey of a new character named Beck (voiced by Elijah Wood), a young program who becomes the unlikely leader of a revolution inside the computer world of The Grid.  You can watch the first episode here.

At the press day for this highly anticipated new show, actress/singer Mandy Moore, who voices Mara, the lone voice of reason and Beck’s loyal best friend and fellow mechanic, talked about how her character fits into the TRON universe, what she thought when she saw how her character would look, what a big TRON fan her husband (singer/songwriter Ryan Adams) is, how excited she is about how cool the show has turned out, and that she’s more of a girl’s girl than her tomboy character. She also talked about writing songs for a new album, doing voice-over work and singing on another Disney animated show, called Sheriff Callie’s Wild West (for Disney Junior), what she looks for in a role now, and that she would definitely be up for a Tangled sequel. Check out what she had to say after the jump:
