Mandy Moore Disses Nicole Richie

Mandy Moore Disses Nicole Richie

Is the rift growing between Mandy Moore and Nicole Richie?

It certainly seems that way when Mandy lays the smackdown in the March 2007 Spring Shopping issue of Seventeen Magazine.

The 22-year-old actor/songstress is dating Nicole Richie‘s ex Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein and brings Nicole up in her yet-to-be-released Seventeen interview.

Mandy rips on Nicole‘s body image saying, “I’m not Nicole Richie. I’m not like a toothpick, and I will never be.” Them fighting words! The March 2007 issue of Seventeen hits newsstands Feb. 13 — just in time for Valentine’s Day!

Mandy Moore and Diane Keaton‘s romantic comedy Because I Said So hits theaters today.

UPDATE 1:: Here’s Mandy‘s full quote: “Oh, God! I tell you what: In this industry it’s my job to look a certain way or whatnot — and it’s’ weird for mem too. But I’m much happier to present this type of person. I’m not Nicole Richie. I’m not like a toothpick, and I will never be. I’m just a regular-looking person — and that’s okay. I’s taken a while to come to grips with that since its’ definitely not the norm in my business. But, like, who cares? If anything, that makes someone more special — or at least that’s what I tell myself. [Laughs]

  • hi

    Well she looks okay – I still think she is thin. But better than most. She probably still has to diet and excersise to stay this size and keep her calories under 1000.

  • nichole

    she is really tiny and not in a good way its grose sorry nicole!! i used to like u but now its just nasty!

  • Vicki

    didnt mandy used to sing? can we still call her a songstress?

  • Retro_Illusion

    I think she has a nice body and her comment on Nicole doesn’t really sound like she was putting her down, she’s just saying she’s not as skinny as far as Hollywoods standards go. On another note, that photo shoot is awful…what the hell was Seventeen thinking?!

  • hmmmm

    Wilmer, Andy Roddick, DJ AJ, that guy from Scrubs…..just making a list.

    she’s good at projecting that wholesome image, ain’t she?

  • Shannon

    I think it is possibly that her statement was taken a bit far, but who knows. She is dating the girls ex. Perhaps she was just saying because Nicole is one of the smallest in HWood. So, perhaps that is all she was meaning. As a PR person, this wasn’t the best thing since this is the ex. But, ooops! :)

    I like Mandy. She has dated a lot of guys though.

  • Tonya

    To hmmmm,
    OMG! How many people have YOU dated? Does that make you a wh*re the way you’re implying about Mandy? How many people do you know who only date one person and stay with them for the rest of their life? Yea, that’s what I thought so STFU!!!

  • WOW

    Mandy is gorgeous! I don’t know what she’s talking about I think she looks perfect! Nicole looks like SH*T! She has the same body as my little 9 year old brother. I don’t blame the guy for dumping Nicole for Mandy. Mandy looks like what a woman should look like.

  • krungkrung

    i like Mandy M. she’s 10x a lot better than Nicole R.

  • Nando

    Mandy’s cool. I used to have a crush on her…

  • Ams

    I don’t see where you would see a rift forming? Mandy simply states that she isn’t a toothpick. Nicole Richie is the most talked about celebrity when it comes to being too skinny. I think she just made a statement. Do we know when this interview was done? She hasn’t been dating that (disgusting) DJ AM guy that long. I don’t think she meant it as an insult. She doesn’t seem like that kind of girl. And as for the girl that commented this first… Mandy has had lasting relationships with Andy Roddick (Sigh) and Zach Braff (Sigh)… is two guys too many? It’s better than I can say for most of Hollywood.

  • i

    Mandy can act and sing. What does Nicole do?

  • May

    I love Mandy. I’ve seen her movie. She sings very well too. She is beautiful too. I just hope the guy she is dating now will not dump her as he did Nicole.

    I wish her the best.

  • Fabiola

    By Hollywood standards she is a “big girl.” But she is pretty and talented and I hope other talented “big girls” start getting more work, too!

  • Lisa

    both of them are completely talentless; i don’t understand why they are being discussed.
    *WOW — dj didnt break up with nicole FOR mandy, they simply broke up (awhile ago) his relationship with mandy is fairly recent.

  • michiewiwi

    please does anyone remeber how she looked when she broke on the scene, she too was a toothpick. it has been recently that she has gained some weight.

  • fi

    Lisa. . . word. mandy moore has gotten really far with a high school talent show bag of tricks. nicole ritchie i almost admire for turning an eating disorder, a famous parent and her relationships with various degenerates into a career.

  • anonymous

    her dare her say that! nicole cant help being naturally skinny!

  • Leia

    Let’s face it – Hollyweird is fickle. Say what is popular now, change it later, no problem. Perhaps Mandy wasn’t slamming Nicole Richie, but it sure was a dig. How sad. There’s enough crap in the world without Hollyweird actresses creating drama in their own lives.

  • vdsgfsd

    yeahhh thats rude saying shes a “toothpick” she cant help being so naturally thin.

  • Jacinda

    Umm…’hi’? Nicole IS a toothpick. Heck, she probably takes that as a compliment. Mandy rocks!

  • Khloe

    First of all, why exactly is Nicole Richie famous? I am so sick of no-talent socialites and all of the press that they receive. I like Mandy Moore and I also do not think she was trying to personally attack Nicole Ritchie, but the girl is the most sickly skinny, constantly photographed female in Hoolywood. She was just stating the obvious and the girl is obviously an extremely nasty looking bag of bones.

  • Please…

    Ok..wait…since when has Nicole ever been “naturally skinny”? She wasn’t fat, but she was what Hollywood would consider “chubby” her entire adolesence. It was only last year, after a “Simple Life” got huge and the tabs were posting pics of her and calling her fat, that she all of a sudden dropped the weight and got waaaay too thin. AND, why are any of you defending her? She didn’t wake up one day and had miraculously lost weight. She dieted, did drugs, whatever…but I can tell you, from partying in some of the same circles, she didn’t just get a disease and suddenly become super skinny! I live and work in Hollyweird and the girl made herself super skinny. I can’t say whether or not she f’d up her system so bad that she now can’t gain weight, maybe true.

    Mandy is seriously pretty. And, no, she isn’t considered “big” here in Hollywood. She’s considered normal. And, sad, by normal, she’s like 5’3, 120lbs…and fact is that isn’t middle America normal.

    Whatever…I’m bored now.

  • bdj

    Now this is a girl fight I would love to see on Pay-per-view. However, I wouldn’t take on Nicole, hunger makes you a fighter.

  • citygurl

    Wilmer, Andy Roddick, DJ AJ, that guy from Scrubs…..just making a list.

    she’s good at projecting that wholesome image, ain’t she?

    Whatever!!! she is young and single she can date who she wants and i dont think she’s ever said she was a goody goody. She’s just not a skank. She is a real woman and that is refreshing in hollywood or otherwise.
    Single women can fuck who they want, guys do it so who cares. Wear a condom and have fun ! I’m so sick of people like you judging women who dont get married at 18 and have 10 babies. She is 22 she shouldnt have to settle down right now. give her a break. I’m sure you wish you got laid as much as she did !
    Besides relationships and marriage are wayyyy overrated.

  • Jen (The Original)

    Maybe she did the interview before she started dating him?
    Wouldn’t that make it a lot less catty and gossip-worthy?

  • meeeeeeeeee

    I don’t understand… how is that ripping on her? Nicole is extremely thin- Mandy Moore has a normal figure. I don’t think she was being rude- just simply making a statement about her own figure. And Nicole Richie knows she is a toothpick.

  • hey

    Well I don’t think Mandy is like some curvaceous bombshell for her to be dissing Nicole’s frame.

  • Ash

    Mandy is not curvy, but at least she looks healthy, not someone whose about to disappear anyday from lack of weight.

  • Sweet83

    Mandy is a good talent. A nice voice but a better actress but I do wish she would drop DJ AM…dude is not hot!

  • Lisa

    a better actress than singer?! how about neither. which movie could you possibly referring to which she acted even half decent in that shows talent? let me see….one of her typical (all she has ever made) teen movies that any person who can memorize a script could easily have done just as good if not better in. she’s not a good singer, not a good actress = no talent. i honestly don’t know how she has lasted this long… i think it has something to do with just dating famous people to keep her name relevant.

  • hahh

    i hate mandy, i don’t care what she thinks i still love nicole. it’s nasty of mandy to bring nicole into this by dissing her looks.

  • mimmee

    Well Mandy is wonderful, and i think her statement was really blown out of context as usual. OMG to me i read in this that she cares, and is probably a bit worried about other’s out there who are ruining thereselves, because of the industry. I think Mandy has a beautiful heart, and is a beautiful woman, and should never change anything about herself.

    I saw her movie, and i have heard her music, and she deserves some kindness for hanging in their when other’s failed, because they can’t take the pressure of what they go through. Mandy continues to hold her head up high, and she is very lovable.

    I don’t think she was putting anyone down. She was just saying she was not the type that could be used, and change in the business. I am glad she is proud of the way she looks now, and doesn’t let the industry influence her, and break her down.

    Wonderful movie, and i so related to it, and her new music is fantastic.

    Love to you Mandy

    Someone who really cares!!

  • anne

    Mandy used to look like a toothpick when she first came out with her singing career so what is she talking about? her arms were so freaking skinny…look at her old video Candy and u will see. She was the stereotype of a pop star w/ blond hair and all. Also i doubt she will be with Dj Am for very long, she isnt that good looking to me…shes so plain. And shes been gaining lots of weight anyways….she shouldnt even comment on self image and stuff. Look at the cover of 17, shes totally airbrushed in the face and thats sad when u have to be airbrushed in the face….

I’d rather spend a day with nicole than mandy moores boring ass. she makes me want to hit myself in the face with huge frying pan…mandy is not anything special….she needs to just stick with indie films and shut up.

  • Lily

    I am naturally skinny…………….Nicole Richie, that girl is just anorexic or something! Guys, naturally skinny does not include having every bone in your body sticking out…………I should know…………people tell me I’m too skinny all the time, even tho I EAT, but I still have some meat on my bones…………..

    Anyaway, Mandy looks great, I’ve always liked her :)

  • lalaaaaaaaaaaa

    I dont think Mandy would say something like that..she also seemed like the Low, down to earth girl, who is always innocent..Well It proves of what Media could do to you..

    How Dare she same something that mean to Nicole..
    Big deal if anyone loses wait..Im 17 and i weigh 98 pounds althought im NOT annerxic or belmic..
    And you dont see anyone writing storys on me, or people bringing me down like that..

    Sometimes people need to get a grip on life, and start worrying on theirs.
    People have to much time on their hands to make up whatever!

  • kathy

    Mandy shoudn’t have said that! Bringing people down doesn’t make you look better.

  • Apassionata Von Klymaxx

    How dare that little clitface Mandy More, more, more….how do you like it? How do you like it……diss on Nicole? Nicole has her beat by miles. Mandy needs to go leave her slimy snail trail somewhere else and watch herself closely. Nicole will have her ass beat into a pulp before I have a KLYMAXX fo sho, honeychile! Mandy looks like a little Mormon whore, which she probably is. Ick!

  • james

    mandy thinks with her genitals & nicole richie is a talentless freak.

  • kowalewiczislove

    I THOUGHT it was about SONNY moore
    not mandy

  • bitchplease

    this quote was nothing personal against nicole….isn’t obvious that nicole is the constant target when it comes to being skinny in hollywood…it’s really not a big deal she used her name! if any other actress said it no one would of said shit but just bcuz shes been seen with DJ AM people lose their shit! get over it!

    oh and nicole is NOT naturally skinny!!!!!!!!

  • bitchplease

    oh and ANNE

    mandy was like 16 or 17 when “candy” came out, she’s 22 going on 23! she a woman not a little girl anymore, it’s defiently natural that she has gained weight!

  • MirandaMoon

    To whoever said Mandy was 5’3″….whoa, you are WAY off!

    She’s 5’10″ and in the 135-140 range.

    She used to be good at manipulating the public into believing she was wholesome and virginal. I think the facade has slipped a bit recently. Her taste in men is questionable.

    Funny that she has kept the innocent virgin shtick going for so long considering that she let Wilmer pop her cherry at 16.

    I don’t know if she’d fall into the Slut category…..but at 22 with 4 *known* consorts, she isn’t exactly uptight. Between the ages of 16 and 22 I’ve had TWO long-term relationships. And in the first one I waited until I was 20 to do the deed.

  • Queen Bee

    One nobody talking about another nobody…yawn

  • Sarah

    Lisa,you’re an idiot. Watch Saved,she has a lot of talent. Apassionata Von Klymaxx,HAHAHA. Mandy is famous for having a career. Nicole is ugly,anorexic,and doesn’t have a career or job. More like Nicole has nothing on Mandy. And Queen Bee,you’re the nobody. Neither of these two know you exist!.

    Mandy is gorgeous and a lot better than Nicole.

  • Amber

    Mandy Moore is great. I love how she’s ok with her body (which looks great) and doesn’t want to be the smallest girl in Hollywood.

    Everyone keeps saying Mandy has dated a lot of guys, but everyone she was with was a long term(no flings) relantionship. She didn’t just jump from guy to guy every other day like a lot of other girls do. Plus, she’s young. She should be dating and having fun.

  • Kendra

    Magazine interviews are done WAY ahead of the publication date. I’m willing to bet that she wasn’t even dating DJ AM when she gave the interview. But now that she’s dating him, the reporter jumped on the quote.

  • what!??!

    Is it me or does mandy moore have a face the size of a pizza pan LMAO.

    That ugly face is just jealous! Team mandy my ass!

  • Emmy

    I wonder why is everyone dissing Nicole, but she never disses back? I guess she doesn’t give a *beep* and is too cool…
