Mandy Moore: Not Your Average Lollipop Head

I'll admit it: I’ve always liked Mandy Moore. Okay, maybe not when she was singing those bubble gum tunes in the late ’90’s, but since she has decided to go the acting way. I always found her believable and cute. I even love that commercial for the Diane Keaton movie, Because I Said So, where she says, “I am asking for it!”

So to hear her say that she isn’t a size 2 and is okay with it, just makes me love her more. She tells Seventeen in the March issue, "I'm not like a toothpick, and I never will be. I'm just a regular-looking person – and that's okay. It's taken a while to come to grips with that since it's definitely not the norm in my business. But like, who cares?”

I know, I know. Plenty of Hollywood starlets who aren’t Nicole Richie thin say things like this, but I happen to believe Mandy.

Though now she's spending time with Richie's ex, DJ AM, Mandy also opened up about her breakup last year with Zach Braff and how, like all of us, she was very depressed after they split. “It was a really intense and emotional year, and I was like, I'm gonna put all my feelings in a box and worry about that later. But sooner or later you have to deal," she revealed. So Mandy recorded a new CD, which comes out May 8, and spilled her guts.

And you know what? I like her so much I may even listen to someone else's copy.
