Mandy Moore on canceling her tour while pregnant: I felt like a shell of myself

Mandy Moore on canceling her tour while pregnant: I felt like a shell of myself
Mandy Moore is expecting her second son with husband Taylor Goldsmith. Their first child, Gus, is 1 . Mandy worked on her show This Is Us right up until the end of that pregnancy. And if you remember, she had a pretty difficult start to her pregnancy with Gus, with severe food aversions and being sick all day long. I bring this up because Mandy didn?t know she was pregnant with #2 when she planned her tour to promote her album In Real Life. It was her first tour in 15 years and obviously, her first tour after becoming a mom. When she learned she was pregnant, she figured she?d worked through the first pregnancy so how hard could a tour be? So, so much harder. Juggling a toddler on a tour bus while pregnant during a rigorous tour schedule proved too much. On June 30th, Mandy made the difficult decision to cancel her remaining dates. Although it crushed her to do so, she was making the decision for her health and the health of her baby. And her OB couldn?t have been happier.

Mandy Moore had a plan: Following the series finale of ?This Is Us,? she would hit the road to promote her new album, ?In Real Life.?

?I didn?t know I was pregnant when we planned the tour,? Moore, 38, told TODAY Parents.

But the actor, who shares 17-month-old son, Augustus ?Gus,? with her husband, Taylor Goldsmith, figured she could ?power through.? After all, she was still filming scenes for This Is Us while in her third trimester with Gus.

?As it turns out, being on a set is worlds away from being on a tour bus,? Moore revealed. ?It was like trying to sleep on a wooden rollercoaster. Gus would be standing up in his Pack N? Play while the bus was shaking ? and I was like, ?No, no, no. We can?t do this anymore.?

Moore and her band were running on just a few hours sleep.

I was scared I was going to adversely affect my [unborn] baby and his growth, she said.

On June 30, the star, who will welcome her second child, a boy, in October, announced that she was canceling her remaining show dates to focus on her health. Moore said she was heartbroken.

?I foolishly thought ?if I did it before, I can do it again,?? Moore explained. ?But every pregnancy is different. This time, I was caring for a toddler. I was walking around feeling like an absolute shell of myself.

Moore said she felt as if she was letting everyone down ? including herself. The singer, who is known for her pop albums in the ?90s, hadn?t toured in 15 years. Performing in front of a live audience again was electrifying.

?I?d been looking forward to this for a decade and half,? Moore shared. ?But ultimately, nothing trumps your health, and the health of your baby.?

Moore said her OB-GYN was very relieved that she decided to come home.

?She was like, ?I know you?re a tough cookie like me, but you?re just gonna rest now, OK???

[From TODAY]

I understand why Mandy went ahead with the tour even after she found out she was pregnant. She was so looking forward to touring again and she had worked through the first. But yeah, TV sets and album tours are apples and oranges. A lot of celebs choose TV because of the regularity of the schedule. I could not imagine the chaos of trying to swing performing across country with my family in tow while I was gestating. My gawd, it sounds exhausting. I?m also glad Mandy chose her health over her obligation. I know she feels bad and will make it up to everyone who missed her this time around. A true fan will understand why she had to cancel too. You can?t risk that level of exhaustion while pregnant. You shouldn?t risk it any time, but especially not when you have a life depending on you.

Mandy also told TODAY that her on-screen daughter Chrissy Metz was at her last concert in Nashville and that really meant a lot to her. Apparently, Mandy and Chrissy have formed quite a bond. It sounds like everyone on that show did, which is sweet given the subject matter. Speaking of This Is Us, they were generally ignored by the Emmys this year. Both Chrissy and Mandy commented on the snub by saying the Emmys kind of blew it with the show?s best season yet. I stopped watching it in season one, was the final season the best?

Amanda Seyfried 'bent over backwards' auditioning for Wicked

Amanda Seyfried 'bent over backwards' auditioning for Wicked
There will, eventually, be a two-movie adaptation of theWicked musical. There were many production delays due to covid, but rehearsals will begin later this month and filming will start later this year. The movies probably wont come out until Christmas 2024 and 2025. Ariana Grande was cast in the role of Glinda, but apparently Amanda Seyfried vied for the role as well. She auditioned on weekends while filming her role inThe Dropout during the week.

Amanda Seyfried tried out to be Glinda in Wicked.

Playing the role of the good witch in the upcoming movie adaptation of the hit musical was actually a long-held dream, the actress, 36, told Backstage.

Last summer while I was playing Elizabeth [in The Dropout], on the weekends I was auditioning in person to play Glinda in the movie version of Wicked ? because I wanted it that much that I was like, You know what? Yeah, I have to play the last scene of The Dropout on Tuesday. Ill give my Sunday to you, said Seyfried, who scored an Emmy nomination for The Dropout.

She continued, I literally bent over backwards while playing the hardest role of my life. But I think it also taught me how far Ive come as a singer, which I really wanted to prove. Because ever since Les Miz, I was like, I need to be better. I need to do better. So whatever comes next in terms of musicals, Im finally prepared.

Seyfrieds love for the musical goes even further back. The Mean Girls alum said on Varietys Awards Circuit podcast that shed been campaigning for Wicked for five years.

Ive never been more ready to hit those notes, she said at the time.

Seyfried has previously displayed her range in a number of productions, notably playing Cosette in the film adaptation of Les Misrables opposite Anne Hathaway, and also in two Mamma Mia! movies.

[From People]

Apparently, Amanda really lovesWickedand wanted a role in it for five years. She was very immersed in the Elizabeth Holmes character during their filming during the week, and it must have been difficult to do auditions for another character on the weekends. I wonder how many auditions she had to do for the Glinda role. Its nice that Amanda is looking on the bright side of not getting the role that all that auditioning showed how far she has come as a singer since Les Mix and she feels prepared for her next musical, whatever that may be. I didnt follow the casting news closely, but heard Ariana had gotten the role and assumed it was one of those scenarios where it was always sort of planned for Ariana to be Glinda. I can imagine Amanda was crushed that someone else got the role she wanted so badly, but now she has her Emmy nom to console her. Also, who would have thought fromMean GirlsAmanda would be the one of the four to have the most interesting and varied career?
