‘This Is Us’ Star Mandy Moore Just Opened up About The Dark Side of Her First Marriage & The Details She Revealed Are Heartbreaking
Mandy Moore was one of the most popular actresses and pop stars from the late 1990s and early aughts. However, the young star eventually seemed to have taken a break from the limelight in the years that followed. In fact, it was only recently that the now-35-year-old Moore released a single in about a decade.
Now, the ‘This Is Us’ star is opening up about the circumstances that led to her music and acting career being put on the back burner.
As Moore revealed in a podcast interview, she had an ‘unhealthy dynamic’ with her first husband Ryan Adams. Due to this, the singer said she ended up ‘with no sense of self’ and realized how she was living her life for him. All of these negative emotions culminated with Moore finally deciding to leave Adams, who is also a musician.
She further elaborated on how she felt lonely when she was with him. And when she tried to set goals for herself outside of the marriage, their relationship tended to fall apart. Thus, she decided to only take on small acting jobs at the time.
Meanwhile, her then-husband also promised to help her out with continuing her music career. This promise didn’ materialize though as Adams reportedly even gave away Moore’s studio time to other musicians.
Restricting Her Career
The singer also talked about Adams’ tendency to be controlling. Not only did he prevent her from releasing her new material for years, but he also ended up restricting her acting career. According to Moore, she had trouble doing her job feeling like she needed to constantly pay attention to her then-husband, who didn’t really let her do other things.
It’s worth noting though that the actress managed to score a co-lead role in the acclaimed NBC dramedy series ‘This is Us’ just half a year after parting ways with Adams. The show is currently in its fourth season and seems to be going strong. Meanwhile, Moore has been nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role as mother of three Rebecca Pearson.
After her separation from her first husband, Moore began dating indie rock band singer Taylor Goldsmith. The couple got engaged after two years together in 2017 and married each other more than a year later. Talking about her relationship with The Dawes lead singer, the star said she’s found the right person.
Moore’s career seems to be thriving once again as she works on more acting and music projects. Just last October, she followed her single ‘When I Wasn’t Watching‘, which she co-wrote with Goldsmith, with a second song called ‘I’d Rather Lose’. Her seventh album is also reportedly in the works.
