Mandy Moore has opened up to Glamour about her past “ups and downs.” Currently, at a high point in her career, she is looking back on how she got where she is. Starting with hit pop songs to acting in films and TV shows, such as A Walk to Remember and Tangled, Moore said she didn’t get to where she is today without some roadblocks. One of the biggest, being her divorce in 2015. At the time, reps for both Moore and husband Ryan Adams called the split “respectful, amicable.” The This Is Us star is now saying that wasn’t exactly the case. She told the magazine that she “didn’t choose the right person.” Today, the 34-year-old is engaged to Taylor Goldsmith and part of one of the most emotionally charged primetime dramas on the air. There is also a potential for a musical comeback for the “Most of Me” singer.
The main stars of NBC tear-jerking drama “This Is Us” are making bank this season. Milo Ventimiglia, Sterling K. Brown, Mandy Moore, Chrissy Metz and Justin Hartley will each receive $250,000 an episode for the 18-episode season. That’s $4.5 million a year, each. Metz previously earned a relatively paltry $40,000 an episode. She said she had only 81 cents in her bank account when she landed the role. This also levels the playing field among all the stars. Milo Ventimiglia had been the lead earner previously, taking in $115,000 per show. They’re earning their keep — This is Us has been scoring a 5.4 in the 18-45 demographic, making it the Number 1 drama on TV.
