Mandy Moore Is Done With Romantic Comedies!

| Filed under: Film FlickersMandy Moore


Understandable, especially given how the last few that she's done have bombed!

Mandy Moore recently revealed that she's no longer interested in starring in light-hearted, romantic comedies, because she doesn't find them fulfilling creatively!

She explains:

"I've had fun doing romantic comedies but I just can't anymore. There's nothing fulfilling creatively, there's nowhere to grow, nothing to learn from it or for yourself. I'd rather just be home with my family or write music until that special project comes my way. It was fun to dip my toe in the water (with musicals in Tangled), but I'd like to do the real thing on the big screen. That'd be so much fun."


And we DEFINITELY agree that we'd like to see you in features with a little more substance, bb, especially given how FANTASTIC you are in edgier roles - like in Saved and American Dreamz!

Of course - never say never! You could find a romantic comedy that really works, it's just a matter of quality!

Either way, best of luck!

    I can't see her doing anything else.

  2. 2

    She's a good actress. I really liked her performance on Walk to Remember. Wishing her the best of luck!!! Give us some more music!!!

  3. 3

    I really like this girl. She's beautiful, talented, sophisticated and has a good head on her shoulders. She should be in high profile movies.

    Gosh, when was the last time she's been in a romantic comedy? lolz

  5. 5

    Well the challenge of a rom-com is making people laugh, which I don't think she has accomplished yet.

  6. 6

    romatic comedies films have been boring these past year I see why she wants to leave that genre she should go on a more seriouse role she should try a drama film where real acting skills will take place.

    Why? I LOVED Tangled…..

    Whaaaaaat? What a big shame! I loved 'because I said so' and 'tangled'. I can't think of any of her rom-com that bombed ….except for Chasing Liberty. haha but let's not talk about it.

    American dreamz was awful.
    I understand she doesn't wanna be type-casted but she doesn't need to give it up for ever. Just make one, once in awhile to pay the bills and make people like me happy. That's all i'm asking.

    Good for her! I think it's great she wants to branch out into other genres, and not become another Kate Hudson; who pretty much only does romantic comedies.

    Full of yourself party of one, your table is ready.

    Has anyone seen "Saved!"?? She was wonderful in that with a wonderful cast of young talent. I'd like to see her do more along those lines. Even pretty girls have it difficult in Hollyweird cause they are typecast for rom-coms.

    Ok… I don't know, she never had a career to be honest hahahaha :D :D
