‘I was born in the wrong decade’ – the Mandy Moore interview

Posted in INTERVIEWS with tags , , , on January 24, 2011 by Ross McG

From pop princess to Disney princess, Mandy Moore has come a long way. At just 26, her albums have sold millions and she has starred in a whole host of movies. These have varied from the syrupy (A Walk To Remember) and the downright forgettable (Licence To Wed) to the completely inspired (Saved!). She has backed those up with TV roles in the likes of Entourage, Scrubs, Grey’s Anatomy and The Simpsons. She is married to singer Ryan Adams. In her latest film, Disney’s rather fun 50th animated feature, Tangled, she voices Rapunzel.

But which of these animated gems outshines the other? You decide. Click HERE or the pic above to read this battle we’ve done for Metro Film Fight Club. Continue reading
