Mandy Moore is the Wave of the Future

Mandy Moore is the Wave of the Future

Mandy Moore looks absolutely stunning as she returns as the cover girl for Elle Magazine in their May 2007 issue (she was on the June 2006 cover).

This issue’s cover shoot included pieces from Roberto Cavalli, Dior by John Galliano, Calvin Klein, Vera Wang, Moschino, Alessandro Dell’Acqua, and Pete Sam.

Mandy Moore is done being a pop music also-ran and somebody’s girlfriend. Now–with another big push at film stardom and a brave new album–can she convince all those doubters?”

Check out some of the highlights from her interview below or click on the thumbnails below for the full Mandy Moore interview from Elle!

  • On ex-boyfriend Zach Braff: “Out of respect to Zach, who I still consider a friend and care about and support, I have nothing bad to say about him. It just didn’t work out.” (Mandy’s friend described him as toxic: “He’s a really bad combination of narcissistic and insecure.”)
  • Upon seeing of photo of herself being dissected on a blog: “People are so mean. (mimics) She’s fat. She’s untalented. I wish she’d shut up. I don’t want to hear another record from her.”
  • On her acting and singing abilities: “I’m mediocre at both. I’m not trying to be self-deprecating. I’m just being honest.”
  • On her body issues: “Sometimes I feel fine. Sometimes I don’t feel so great. I’m a regular person. I’m not that thin. I’m okay with representing a different type than the Hollywood beauty ideal. But other people aren’t so okay with that. I’ve been told that I have to lose weight for stuff before. It’s mortifying. It’s hard to have someone come up and go, ‘You should lose a few pounds.’ And they don’t say it delicately. How can you? It’s only happened to me once before (for her upcoming film License to Wed). But once is enough to make you feel awful.”

    “Iā€™m okay with representing a different type than the Hollywood beauty ideal.”

    Actually I can remember the times when MM was thin as a stick…

  • ella

    Mandy looks like Pete Wentz…which works if your a dude but……

  • Vera

    Mandy looks great, but I’m really bored with her advertising herself by taking about how natural she is…

  • Vera

    talking, i mean

  • Lo

    i love her but she comes off as a wanna be poser! In life, you need to be able to embrace all of you. i did buy her first cd, i was in high school and i loved it then, i still listen to it now. Its disrespectful to everyone that worked on and bought that album. i feel smited!

    “i have thing for jewish boys”
    “i like a good jewish boy”
    hey mandy thats christina aguilera’a line from 2005.

    you don’t like being called fat and untalented by BLOGS but its ok to call someone a toothpick in an MAGAZINE distributed worldwide. thats nice.

    she is such a saint!

    She actually looks good in some of the pics. Probably one of her best/sexiest shoots.

    But she looks pretty thin to me in that pic! Dont know how much thinner she is talking about.

  • lurker opinion

    The eye makeup is all wrong IMO. Stunning..No

  • [Fug Face [x]]

    those photos look real jennifer lopez’ish, and it’s not working.

    mandy-trash, photos-trash.

  • sasha

    Damn…those pics are absolutely stunning. I’ll be grabbing that mag for sure!

  • Natalie

    Mandy is adorable. I think she is a good role model for girls. I don’t really get these sexy poses w/ the heavy eye make up and the soaked clothing. Still love her though.

  • Minny

    To be fair, she was stick thin awhile back because she was only 15 when she came out with her first single.

  • Vicente

    Why don’t people let her to live peacefully?
    She can act, she can sing, she’s not doing nothing bad.
    Her fans are very very proud of her.
    People should have + respect.

  • Mia

    She’s really beautiful

  • ella

    i still think she looks like pete wentz!

  • Poor Mandy

    She’s so insecure and hard on herself. She should be putting positive energy out there. I think she’s good. I liked her in “A Walk To Remember” She did well for it being her first big acting gig.

  • N

    She’s a better actress than she is a singer. But I like her… she seems very down to earth.

  • babyt

    I love her, I always will. I remember when she was tooth pick skinny and it didn’t fit her very well. She’s a tall girl, she deserves to be the weight she is. She looks perfect and shouldn’t really care what other people say about her. Her singing is alright, she’s not exactly amazing, that’s my point of view. But I do love her movies, she has a great ability of putting a smile on my face. =-]

  • Loveformandy

    She was pretty and will always be. I love Mandy as she is. She is so natural, down to earth and would even cancel a flight just to surprise her fans. You will never spot this girl drunk while driving. Won’t sell her sexuality just to increase the sales of her album.
