Mandy Moore is surely hot enough to convince any guy to sit through NBC’s one-hour drama every Tuesday night, right?
From good girl singing bubblegum pop to the gorgeous woman starring on the hit NBC show, Moore has been a knock out through it all. Below are seventeen sexy photos of Mandy Moore that will convince any man to tune into NBC's This Is Us.
17. Baby Mandy Moore
Mandy Moore rose to fame at a really young age... like a really, really young age. She was just 15-years-old in 1999 when her debut single “Candy” was released. The video is some vintage ‘90s, with Moore driving a Volkswagen Beetle and wearing headphones. Even at 15 years old though, she looks gorgeous in the "Candy" music video. While this photo was taken a few years following “Candy,” Moore is still mega young in this photo, but it’s a great example of the fact that Moore has been hot forever.
Yes, she still has that good girl vibe going in this photo, but her body is smokin’ hot. In a white bikini with the teeniest tiniest belt that has ever been made, Moore looks phenomenal. Also, her face has looked the same since she popped on the scene as a 15-year-old. She has literally not aged a day.
16. At 2004's Saved! Premiere
At the premiere of 2004’s Saved!, Mandy Moore brought the heat. While she has an amazing body, it’s not often that she shows it off in such an overt way… but maybe she should. She looks amazingly hot while sporting a dress that reveals an ample amount of side boob. If there is something hotter than frontal cleavage, it is side boob and Mandy Moore apparently knows that.
Saved! was a satire in which a girl attending catholic school becomes pregnant and ostracized by her classmates. Moore played one of the students who bullies the protagonist once she becomes pregnant. Moore also played the resident mean girl in 2001’s The Princes Diaries. We don’t know if we buy Mandy Moore as a bully because she seems sweet as pie, but she certainly acted the part in both films.
15. No More Bubblegum Pop For Mandy Moore
In breaking away from her bubblegum-pop-good-girl image, Mandy Moore had to adjust her look. She did so by dying her hair a dark brown color, which looks great on her. Moore is one of those beauties who can honestly pull off any hair color. The decision to dye her hair a darker hue was genius in many ways, as it transformed her from the sweet girl singing "Candy" into a sultry seductress. If blonde was for her youth, her darker hair was for her older, sexier look. Oh, and the fact that her tank top comes down well past her bra also helps her look like the hottie of all hotties.
While Moore played the mean girl in 2001’s The Princess Diaries and 2004’s Saved!, she played the nicest girl in the world in 2002’s A Walk to Remember. It’s based on a cheesy Nicholas Sparks novel, so it's definitely a tear-jerker, but Moore also looks stunning in the movie.
14. The Deepest Cut Dress Ever
At 2017’s Golden Globes, Mandy Moore brought all the heat. She wore an amazingly low-cut navy gown, looking both elegant and sexy as hell. It’s not many women who can pull off looking both graceful and sexy. It's a fine line to walk and Mandy Moore walks it very well.
At this awards show, she was nominated for her very first Golden Globe for her role in This Is Us. Being that basic cable programs have been having trouble creating programming that gets critical acclaim, this was a big deal for NBC. She was nominated alongside her This Is Us costar, Chrissy Metz. Both This Is Us actresses lost to Olivia Colman for her performance in The Night Manager. You probably didn’t see The Night Manager, because no one really did but apparently it's good. This Is Us was also nominated for Best Drama Series, but lost to Netflix’s The Crown. Better luck next year, This Is Us.
13. The Cutest Snow Bunny
Mandy Moore is so hot that she can even make the snow look hot. In this photo posted on social media, Moore isn’t showing any skin at all. In fact, she’s pretty bundled up, but she’s still pretty sexy because of her cute, playful face. There is nothing better than a girl who is willing to make a goofy face. Oh, and the fact that she’s absolutely gorgeous helps her too.
After starring in teen movies in the early 2000s, Mandy Moore broke away from her PG-13 audience and appeared in Entourage. Her 5-episode arc consisted of her playing herself, as many of the guest-stars did on Entourage. Moore's character had a history with Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier), which they rekindle. Though this was a break from her sweet girl persona, she didn’t show any nudity on Entourage, which is almost expected for HBO shows.
12. 2003's How To Deal Premiere
At the premiere for 2003’s How to Deal, Mandy Moore didn’t rock a low-cut gown, but she still brought heat. Her strapless number showed off her voluptuous body. I know, it feels weird to call Mandy Moore voluptuous but she really does have curves, though she generally keeps them covered up.
After her stint of Entourage, Moore hopped around on television shows, with roles on Scrubs, How I Met Your Mother, and The Simpsons. She then starred in two feature films in 2007 – Because I Said So and License to Wed. Both films received very low ratings from the critics, Because I Said So with a 4% on Rotten Tomatoes and License to Wed with a 7%. Neither performed well in the box office. So, 2007 was a rough year for Mandy Moore, but at least she was still really hot.
11. The Candy Music Video
It feels a little bit weird to talk about how hot Mandy Moore was in the “Candy” music video since she was, like, 12 years old. Okay, she was 15 years old, but that’s still way too young.
Of course, this would not be the first time that the music industry sexualized a young pop star and it would not be the last time. In fact, Moore came up around the time that several young pop stars were being sexualized. There was Britney Spears in “…Baby One More Time, ” Christina Aguliera in “Genie In A Bottle,” and Jessica Simpson in “Irresistible.” Moore came up in the hay day of female pop stars. Bubblegum pop was all the rage and these young beauties were huge stars. All four of these artists have taken different paths since the early '00s, with some of them focusing on television, others merchandise, and Britney her Las Vegas show. Regardless of different paths, they are all wildly successful in their own right.
10. Mandy Moore Rocking A Bikini
We’d love to include some less dated bikini photos of Mandy Moore, but she honestly doesn’t do many bikini shoots. Since her break from the music industry, Moore has been much more selective in the clothing she wears in photoshoots. While she’s often stunning and sexy, she is noticeably more covered than she was in her early days. Yes, that totally sucks for the world since Moore can rock a bikini. She still brings heat with her low-cut gowns on the red carpet and more high-end photoshoots. Also, this photoshoot looks like something that was done at a Sears, so we’re glad that she’s more elegant now.
In the time between this Sears (but also hot) bikini photoshoot and now, Moore was pretty lost. She starred in movie flops and had small roles on television shows. It seemed that Mandy Moore couldn’t find a place for herself in the entertainment business after breaking away from her teen roles. In 2010, her small role on Grey’s Anatomy was a glimmer of hope, as her performance and tragic storyline was highly praised.
3 She's A Sultry Queen
Ah, moving away from weird Sears photoshoots and towards more high-end – here is Mandy Moore looking seductive as hell. The beauty isn’t rocking a bikini, but the low-cut dress and leggy Mandy Moore look hot.
In 2010, Moore finally found a role in movie that was both critically acclaimed and a box office hit: Tangled. The Disney film was about Rapunzel, who Moore voiced. The film was also nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song, because nearly every single Disney movie is nominated for that award. This was great for Mandy Moore’s career, as it combined her talent for both acting and singing. It lead to her doing voice work for shows such as TRON: Uprising and High School USA!
While Tangled wasn't anything that would forever change her career, at least she was no longer starring in flops.
8. That Dress, Another Angle (It's Too Good)
Mandy Moore looked so hot in this dress that we had to include two photos. To be honest, the dress isn’t anything great. The dress is even wrinkled at the bottom. Whoever let Mandy Moore wear this to her film premiere without steaming it first should have been fired. However, the revealing dress is one of Moore’s hottest looks. It reveals a significant amount of side boob and the open back reveals a lot of skin. Backless dresses are somehow so hot. Who knew that back skin would be so sexy? The dress flatters her frame, showing off her thin frame and nice butt. Mandy Moore has a nice butt, guys! Check it out!
With a bod this hot, it may shock some that Moore is single. She married the musician Ryan Adams in 2009, but they later divorced in 2015 citing “irreconcilable differences”.
2 Actually, All Dresses Look Good On Her
Alright, so that wrinkly dress clearly showed off Mandy Moore’s curves in a phenomenal way, but really all dresses look good on her. This black number is pretty basic, but Moore brings her sizzle to it. Thankfully, Moore found a show that fits her as well as all dresses do, in 2016’s This Is Us.
This Is Us was basically already a hit before its premiere on September 20, 2016. The trailer released for the show gained 28 million views in its first week. This is a record that was previously held by DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, which gained 4.1 million views in its first week. So, as you can see, This Is Us smashed that record.
The trailer showed many characters – Mandy Moore included – going through huge moments of their life, but the way these characters were connected was yet to be revealed. The mystery around their connection is what helped propel the buzz for this new show to a whole new level.
6. A Moody (And Really Hot) Mandy
With the trailer for This Is Us circulating, people were extremely curious as to what it would be about. Clearly, Mandy Moore was pregnant, like really, really pregnant. Milo Ventimiglia (hunk of all hunks) was playing her husband, but what was the relationship between all the other characters? People wanted to know!
Being that Dan Fogelman, the mind behind Crazy, Stupid, Love, was the creator of This Is Us, people assumed that there would be some kind of a Crazy, Stupid, Love twist, with many of the characters having a familial connection. Dan Fogelman also wrote Tangled, so obviously he has a thing for casting Mandy Moore – and Moore should be incredibly thankful for Fogelman, as he helped rejuvenate her career.
5. Baby Mandy Moore (Part 2)
One more of baby Mandy Moore, because she’s been gorgeous since she was a teenager. Like, when was this girl’s awkward stage? It seems like she didn’t go through one. She just went from being a pretty teenager to being a smokin’ adult. Life is not fair for us mere mortals who are not Mandy Moore. She's been slayin' since she was 15.
When This is Us premiered, it drew an audience of 10.07 million viewers, which is a substantial premiere audience. The premiere also illuminated the audience to the connection between all the characters. Moore and Ventimiglia’s storyline takes place in the past, while the three other stars are their children who are living in the present. It’s like a Lost-style family drama, as the show skips from past to present to reveal secrets from the past that give context to what is going on in the present. In all honesty, it is a genius way to do a family drama, but the real question is how long can this show keep that up?
1 She's An Actual Disney Princess
While Mandy Moore may have voiced a Disney Princess in Tangled, at the 2011 Academy Awards, she looked like a real life Disney princess. Her dress may not have been superbly revealing, but it was gorgeous nonetheless. In fact, no one else has ever looked so much like a real-life Disney princess before. Disney should make her into a cartoon and make a movie about it. Or maybe, she should be cast in the next live-action Disney movie, because you just know there are going to be many more. Emma Watson is a great Belle and all, but Mandy Moore just screams Disney princess.
The dress many not have been very revealing, but it was like an elegant version of Britney Spears' bejewelled naked body in the “Toxic” music video. It's like Moore somehow took that bejeweled look and made it into an elegant dress.
3. Her Witchy Photoshoot
Let’s all be thankful that Mandy Moore has shed that good girl image. Because of that, hot photos like this exist.
In this photo, Moore is doing what she does best – she’s wearing a super low-cut dress but still looking elegant. Moore somehow knows the exact amount of clothing to wear. Usually, if someone were to wear a dress this low-cut, it would be too much skin. Instead, Moore pairs it with long sleeves and flowy fabric. This way the dress shows off ample cleavage, but isn’t overwhelmingly sexy. It's the perfect mixture of conservative and sultry.
With the odd way the wind is blowing and her hands are positioned, it looks like she’s a witch, right? She’s got ‘70s witch vibes written all over this look. Of course, she’d be more of a good witch… because, y’know, it’s Mandy Moore.
2. Low-Cut, Of Course
This may not be the lowest cut dress Mandy Moore has ever worn - for that, go back to #14 - however, the small cut outs on the side of the dress add an extra little wowza effect. She’s showing a little bit of skin here and there, making the dress much sexier than it seems at first glance.
Just one week after the premiere of This Is Us, NBC picked up the series for a full season of 18 episodes. The huge fan base for This Is Us doesn’t just come from the fact that it’s unapologetically emotional. The show also causes fans to go wild with fan theories. Seeing both the past and present leaves the audience wondering what has happened in the middle. (Warning: small spoiler coming your way.) In particular, the audience is curious as to how the patriarch (Ventimiglia) died.
The show's popularity has helped it already be renewed through season three. Yes, season one isn't even over and it's already been renewed through the third season. That's a hit show if we ever heard of one.
1. Mature Mandy Moore For The Win
Here’s the thing about how hot Mandy Moore is – she doesn't even have to try to be hot. She is so beautiful that she can rock an elegant black dress and look like the best dressed person in the room. Unlike other stars who have worked incredibly hard to be considered sexy through their roles, photoshoots, and red carpet looks, Moore is much more conservative but equally as hot. Then again, what could ever not be hot about someone who is as wildly talented as Mandy Moore?
Also, the fact that Moore has also been a player in Hollywood for nearly twenty years and has skated by without a major scandal is extremely respectable. I mean, she may actually be the good girl she often portrays, right? And, the fact that she’s a good girl doesn’t stop her from being mega sexy, which is extremely cool. Take note women, you don’t have to show all the skin to be hella sexy.
If you guys don’t want to watch This Is Us now, you are truly missing out. Everyone should want Mandy Moore on their TV screen every Tuesday.
