Mandy Moore Says She Is Still Haunted by Justin Timberlake Comment About Her Feet
Mandy Moore revealed on The Late Late Show this past Tuesday night that she is still haunted by a comment Justin Timberlake made about her feet when they were on tour. Moore was really on the show to talk about her new role in breakout drama This is Us, but the conversation soon turned to her times on the road with *NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys.
Moore and host James Corden were bonding over their mutual love for boy bands when Moore described an incident with Timberlake backstage that still bothers her.
“I was 15 when I started singing and I went from watching them on MTV as I would get ready for school in the morning to six months later I was on the road with *NSYNC."
After Moore shot her first music video, she was then flown to Virginia Beach to join the band on their big summer amphitheater tour. The singer and actress, now 32, admits that she is a terrible dancer and the comment happened after she performed onstage.
“I was just the peasly opening act, nobody cared about me,” she said. “And Justin Timberlake was there and somehow there was a conversation about feet or foot size and all the background dancers and my background dancers and I stroll up at 15 freaking out that Justin Timberlake is there and he’s like, ‘you have big feet for a girl!’”
Moore also opened up about her divorce from her husband of five years, Ryan Adams, about two months after it was finalized back in August. She described being able to focus on herself again now that the marriage was finally over. The two filed for divorce this past January citing irreconcilable differences and the separation was finalized this past June.
“It’s tough,” E! Online reports that she said during the Television Critics Association panel while appearing on behalf of new film This Is Us. “I think it’s been great to be able to take all of the chapters in my life and be able to pour it into a job like this because it helps. It’s all fuel.”
While Moore is currently working on television and film projects, she said that she fully intends to return to a career in the music industry.
