10 Things You Didn’t Know About Mandy Moore
8. Friendly Exes
Not many people can master the art of being friends with an ex, but Mandy Moore and Wilmer Valderrama can! The two stars dated from 2000 to 2002 and just recently shared a selfie together on Instagram after running into each other on the Paramount Studios lot. He captioned the photo: “A Paramount Studios moment…When one of the most special people just so happens to be shooting her show @nbcthisisus at the same lot you’re shooting @ncis_cbs…Love you Mandela!” Their friendship is so sweet! She even admitted that she’s close friends with another one of his linked love interests, Minka Kelly. Moore apparently is best friends with Kelly who was linked to Valderrama in 2012 and again this past October after they were spotted in Mexico. When asked about this apparent love triangle on WWHL, Moore said it’s not awkward at all. “It’s not weird. I love them both. We’re like very, very close friends. [We dated] for a year – he was my boyfriend when I was 15. We can still be friends!”
7. Naming her Cat
Mandy Moore recently went on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and revealed that since she moved from her longtime home, her cat won’t stop crying through the night. “When we moved my cat, the grey one you just saw, was crying all night. And I gave him different food, I fed him early, I fed him late, I closed the door, I left the door open. I tried everything because, I mean, it was like a baby keeping us up all night. My last resort was, I had a friend who had a difficult period with his dog and he called a pet psychic. So I was like, I’m calling a pet psychic! That’s it! That was my last resort,” she said. “She told me that he [Addison] hated his name and that the reason he is crying all night is that he loves the acoustics in the apartment and he loves to hear himself sing.” The psychic then told her to change the name of her cat to “Fig, like Figaro. And what do you know? It worked!” Her ex-husband had named the cats after the characters on the show Moonlighting.
