MANDY Moore is this monthâ€™s face of â€˜C magazineâ€™ [May 2007].
Itâ€™s seems that the â€˜extraordinaryâ€™ singer is becoming quite a popular face, with her new reflective album â€˜Wild Hopeâ€™ hitting our stores very, very soon, and with several movies nearing their theatrical release.
The photo shoot for this issue was shot at designer Tony Duquetteâ€™s â€œDawnridgeâ€ estate in Los Angeles, which according to JustJared is the same place as the gorgeous Reese Witherspoon photo shoot for â€˜Harperâ€™s Bazarrâ€™ was shot.
Mandy also chatted with â€˜Câ€™ for the issue, here is an extract [provided by JustJared]:
On her music career and new album Wild Hope:
Â â€œNot to sound cheesy, but it was a period of intense self-reflection. I was asking myself all these questions: â€˜Who am I? Am I doing what I love? Do I want to be doing this as a career? â€¦ While I was making the album, I was on the roller coaster that is love and going through breakupsâ€¦ so it was cathartic, too. â€¦ Iâ€™m not being self-deprecating. I can listen to good pop, but I would not include myself in that category. Itâ€™s embarrassing. I wish I could make those records disappear.â€
Â On partying:
Â â€œIâ€™m an early bird. Itâ€™s a problem. My friends are always, like, Really? You canâ€™t go out again?â€.
Â On her figure:
â€œIâ€™m not willing to deprive myself. I am who I am. I know I donâ€™t fit into the trendy look right now, but Iâ€™m much happier representing this body type. I have to make other sacrifices, like not seeing my friends, for my career, so if I want French fries, Iâ€™ll have them.â€
Â On her admission of having been depressed:
Â â€œIâ€™m used to being a very positive person, and all this stuff I was writing about for the album made me feel like I was wearing these blue tinted glasses. Itâ€™s not like I was every diagnosed, and Iâ€™ve never seen a therapist, although Iâ€™d love to, because I donâ€™t want to keep burdening my friends.â€
Â On living in LA with her two brothers:
â€œIâ€™m a scaredy-cat when it comes to spiders and bugs.â€
Â On why she hasnâ€™t changed her name to reflect her adult work and outlook:
Â â€œAmandaâ€™s a chain-smoking cabaret singer in her late 60s singing in the Catskills. Maybe when Iâ€™m that old, Iâ€™ll become Amanda.â€
Moore also stars on the cover of this monthâ€™s Elle magazine, which also features possibly one of the most beautiful Britâ€™s, Orlando Bloom â€“ so itâ€™s sure to be a good issue.
