Mandy Moore


Amanda Leigh "Mandy" Moore (born April 10, 1984) is an American pop singer, songwriter, actress, and fashion designer. She grew up in Florida and came to fame as a teenager in the early 2000s, after the release of her teen-oriented pop albums So Real, I Wanna Be with You, and Mandy Moore. Moore has branched out into a film career, starring in 2002's A Walk to Remember and later appearing in the lead roles of other movies also aimed at teenage audiences.


Two of her later films, American Dreamz and Saved!, were satires in which Moore portrayed darker characters than in her previous roles. Moore's private life, including her relationships with tennis player Andy Roddick as well as with actors Wilmer Valderrama and Zach Braff, has been much discussed in the media. Moore's fifth album, Wild Hope, was released in 2007.

Fashion career
Moore has branched into the fashion world with her own fashion line named Mblem., a brand of contemporary knitwear and cashmere. The line is sold in over 500 specialty boutiques including Ron Herman and Lisa Kline and in some department stores such as Macy's West, Bloomingdales and Nordstrom.
Personal life
Moore's favorite musicians include Elton John, Switchfoot and Bette Midler; Midler is also Moore's favorite actress, and her film Beaches was Moore's favorite film when she was a teenager. Moore also enjoys Annie Hall and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and has described herself as a "glass-half-full kind of person". She says she does not know how to cook, but has set a goal for herself to take cooking classes.

Moore has also become a fan of mixed martial arts, often attending UFC events and being noted as one of the mainstream celebrities on hand. As to her religious beliefs, Moore considers herself spiritual, and has said that she does not think of herself as either Catholic or Christian. In early 2007, Moore stated that during the previous year, she had undergone a "really crazy time" in her life, asking herself "life-altering questions".

I also love her version of Umbrella :)

I think she sound much more better when she sings country songs (e.g in her Wild Hope album).. She has the voice to fit with..

Anyway, I missed her acts in How I Meet Your Mother (one of my favorite tv series ever!!)
