Mandy Moore: I'm an Early Bird, It's a Problem

Mandy Moore: I'm an Early Bird, It's a Problem

Self-proclaimed “mediocre” singer-actress Mandy Moore is C Magazine’s May 2007 cover girl. The photo shoot was taken March 5th at designer Tony Duquette‘s “Dawnridge” estate in Los Angeles. (It’s the same place that Reese Witherspoon was photographed for Harper’s Bazaar.)

  • On her music career and new album Wild Hope: “Not to sound cheesy, but it was a period of intense self-reflection. I was asking myself all these questions: ‘Who am I? Am I doing what I love? Do I want to be doing this as a career? … While I was making the album, I was on the roller coaster that is love and going through breakups… so it was cathartic, too. … I’m not being self-deprecating. I can listen to good pop, but I would not include myself in that category. It’s embarrassing. I wish I could make those records disappear.”
  • On partying: “I’m an early bird. It’s a problem. My friends are always, like, Really? You can’t go out again?”.
  • On her figure: “I’m not willing to deprive myself. I am who I am. I know I don’t fit into the trendy look right now, but I’m much happier representing this body type. I have to make other sacrifices, like not seeing my friends, for my career, so if I want French fries, I’ll have them.”
  • On her admission of having been depressed: “I’m used to being a very positive person, and all this stuff I was writing about for the album made me feel like I was wearing these blue tinted glasses. It’s not like I was every diagnosed, and I’ve never seen a therapist, although I’d love to, because I don’t want to keep burdening my friends.”
  • On living in LA with her two brothers: “I’m a scaredy-cat when it comes to spiders and bugs.”
  • On why she hasn’t changed her name to reflect her adult work and outlook: “Amanda’s a chainsmoking cabaret singer in her late 60s singing in the Catskills. Maybe when I’m that old, I’ll become Amanda.”
