"That coincided with my personal life not being in a great place".
Mandy Moore might be focusing on her acting career as the stellar Rebecca Pearson on This Is Us, but that doesn't mean that new music is completely off the table. "I was really discouraged and dismayed at the sort of opportunities that weren't presenting themselves any longer", she told People.
2015 involved a lot of heartache for Moore: Her six-year marriage to Ryan Adams ended in divorce, and she was "barely treading water" when it came to her career. (Moore was Wednesday to rocker Ryan Adams for six years; they divorced in 2015).
Mandy explained that they spent hours FaceTiming and fell in love before they had ever even held hands or kissed each other. 'We started emailing back and forth, then we went on a date and the rest is history. Every day I drive into work I'm like, "Thank you, universe!"' "Thanks Instagram, for helping me meet my fiancé!"
Moore and musician Goldsmith, singer and guitarist for the L.A. band Dawes, have been together for more than two years - and kids, it seems, are a hot topic for the happy couple. Adds the star: "I'm better equipped to appreciate everything because of what I've gone through". The good news is that Moore's character on This Is Us does sing from time to time, so at least fans can get their singing fix from the actress on the drama.
