Mandy Moore is opening up about the time Wilmer Valderrama lied about taking her virginity


HER NAME IS Mandy Moore and she’s here to make it clear – she did not lose her virginity to Wilmer Valderrama, despite what he’s saying.

The This Is Us star wanted to clear up the rumours on Howard Stern’s US radio show this week, after Valderrama claimed to have done the deed with her on the very same show in 2006 saying that while it “wasn’t like warm apple pie,” it was an enjoyable experience. Brb, vomiting.

At the time, Moore called his comments “utterly tacky”. Now, she’s come to forgive the That 70s Show star, while still refuting his claims.

“I dated him when I was 16, 17, no [he didn’t take my virginity],” she said.

I love him and I still love him and he’s a very good friend and that’s why I was so shocked by it. Not only was it a fib, but it was so unlike him, so uncharacteristic. He’s dated all the ladies. I met him at a photoshoot for some teen magazine when I was 15 — never French kissed a boy — he was like my first true boyfriend.”

Moore went on to spill tea about most of her exes – she thought Zach Braff was the love of her life when they dated between 2004 – 2006, and that tennis star Andy Roddick broke her heart when they were together (“He’s moved on, he’s married [to Brooklyn Decker] with kids and he seems super happy and I’m happy for him.”)

She also reflected on her divorce from Ryan Adams, who she was married to from 2009 to 2015, and with whom she fought with over spousal support and pets.

“I just chose the wrong person,” she explained.

We’re just different, we were not meant to be. It was a very lonely life. Someone who’s obsessed with themselves and obsessed with their work and wasn’t able to be a partner or husband. The anger subsided for me now. I have so much distance from it now, I have a different perspective.”

Leaving the drama behind her, she’s currently happily engaged to musician Taylor Goldsmith of the band Dawes. You can listen back to the full interview below.
