Newsweek spoke with Mandy Moore in a Q&A and asked the singer about dating Wilmer Valderrama, and “who hasn’t dated” the ‘That ’70s Show’ star. “But I was the first! I was 16; he was my first boyfriend,” she said. “I started quite the trend, didn’t I? Ladies love them some Wilmer. He’s a good guy. I actually still keep in touch with him. I think people make him out to be this crazy ladies’ man, but he’s such a gentleman. My parents loved him.” No word if the interview was conducted before or after the Howard Stern interview with Valderrama, where he bragged about taking Moore’s virginity.
Mandy Moore: ‘I’m Just Boring’
April 16, 2006 – Mandy, a self-confessed “homebody,” who lives with her two brothers in Los Angeles, spoke with The New York Daily News about avoiding the club scene her peers are notorious for being a part of and getting much more tabloid attention because of it. “I don’t think I’m really interesting enough to gossip about,” she joked. “I feel like there’s this on-off switch. Like when you’re at work, you turn it on – and not necessarily become a different person – but when I leave, I go back to my apartment and I watch TiVo and I’m in my pajamas and I order in food. I think it’s just trying to stay grounded and a quiet life that’s maybe kept me out of trouble. I’m just boring when it comes down to it. I’m an old woman at 22.”
