ETONLINE.COM: Mandy Moore is rooting for Zachary Levi!

ET caught up with the This Is Us star on the red carpet at PaleyFest on Sunday, where she explained why her Tangled co-star would be the perfect addition to a future Justice League movie.

“He always had it in him,” Moore said of Levi, who portrays the latest DC superhero in Shazam! “He was always a superhero in my mind. Maybe the world is just finally starting to take notice.”

“I adore him. I think he’s one of the most phenomenally talented gentlemen out there,” she continued. “He’s a total sweetheart. I’m so happy for him. I can’t wait to go see his movie and support him. I think he’s, like, tailor made for a buff superhero.”

Moore isn’t the only one that seems to feel that way! Levi has become somewhat of a sex symbol on social media, with some referring to him as a “zaddy.” Speaking with ET earlier this month, the 38-year-old actor said he’s “not ready” for that type of attention.

“I don’t think about that stuff,” he said. “All that stuff is just the icing on the cake of the not real life that all of this is. So if people wanna put me in the same conversation as all those guys [like the Hemsworth brothers], rock ‘n’ roll. I just am gonna keep doing what I think is the right thing in my life.”

All jokes aside, Levi said he couldn’t be any more grateful for getting the opportunity to play such a coveted role.

“This is the far biggest thing I’ve ever been blessed enough to be a part of and be the titular character of, so it’s super surreal and super cool,” he gushed. “I always dreamed and believed it was possible that I could be a superhero maybe one day, certainly ever since I was a kid I wanted that to be a reality. But these roles are rare, there’s not that many of them and I had already been very blessed playing an Asgardian in another universe.”

This Is Us airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on NBC. The season three finale, which creator Dan Fogelman teases will be “gigantic,” airs April 2.

VARIETY.COM: This Is Us star Mandy Moore successfully transitioned from a teenage pop star to an adult who juggles singing, acting and, soon enough, producing professionally. On March 25 she is being celebrated for her achievements with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, an honor she calls “tremendously humbling.”

“I feel like I’m operating at my best now. I know what I want; I know how to ask for it; I know how to not settle until I get that,” Moore says. “I’m better at stepping up to the plate and acknowledging the value I bring to the plate. I guess that just only comes with the wisdom and clarity of time and age.”

THE INDEPENDENT: Mandy Moore will receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame to celebrate her two-decade career in music, film and television.

Moore discussed the forthcoming ceremony, which is scheduled for the 25 March, on Jimmy Kimmel Live, telling the host that it is “crazy” to think about the honour.

Kimmel showed her a photo of her star’s future location, which is close to a costume shop that Moore says she has visited in the past.

The actor said she has invited approximately the same number of people to the ceremony as she did to her 2018 wedding to musician Taylor Goldsmith.

Dan Fogelman, the creator of the hit series This Is Us, on which Moore plays the role of Rebecca Pearson, is set to give a speech during the event.

“He’s given me my life,” Moore told Kimmel of Fogelman. “It’s the reason I’m getting a star on the Walk of Fame.”

In order for a celebrity to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a nomination must be submitted in their name and with their agreement. A selection committee then reviews applications.

There is a $40,000 fee to cover the creation and maintenance of the star, which can be paid by industry executives (such as a recording label) or, on occasion, by fans.

US WEEKLY: Standing right beside her. Shane West supported his A Walk to Remember costar Mandy Moore after she spoke out about her ex-husband Ryan Adams’ alleged abusive behavior toward her during their marriage.

“Warmest hug EVER to the strongest woman I know,” the Nikita alum, 40, commented on the This Is Us star’s Wednesday, February 13, Instagram post.

Moore, 34, and West starred as unlikely teenage couple Jamie Sullivan and Landon Carter, respectively, in the 2002 romantic drama, which was adapted from Nicholas Sparks’ novel of the same name. The pair reunited with director Adam Shankman in February 2017. “Welp. These 2 gentlemen are still some of the best around,” the actress captioned a selfie of the trio on Instagram at the time. “Loved catching up with ya, @theshanewest and @adamshankman. My [heart] is full.”

The “Candy” singer accused Adams, 44, of psychological abuse in a New York Times exposé published on Wednesday. “Music was a point of control for him,” she told the newspaper of her ex, whom she split from in January 2015 following nearly six years of marriage. “He would always tell me, ‘You’re not a real musician, because you don’t play an instrument.’”

She continued: “His controlling behavior essentially did block my ability to make new connections in the industry during a very pivotal and potentially lucrative time — my entire mid-to-late 20s.”

Through his lawyer, Adams denied Moore’s claims, which he called “completely inconsistent with his view of the relationship.” He also noted that he supported his ex-wife’s “well-deserved professional success.”

The Tangled star defended her allegations in her Wednesday Instagram post. “Speaking your truth can be painful and triggering but it’s always worth it,” she wrote. “My heart is with all women who have suffered any sort of trauma or abuse. You are seen and heard. #sisterhoodforever.”

Moore, who wed Taylor Goldsmith in November 2018, stepped out on Thursday, February 14, for the first time since the piece was published. A source told Us the songstress looked “super happy” while hanging out with her friends at Saddle Ranch in Los Angeles, adding: “It just looked like a regular, fun girls’ night out with all the girls talking to each other, eating, drinking [and] snapping pics on their cell phones of each other.”

PEOPLE.COM: Days before she discussed how her ex-husband Ryan Adams allegedly held her music career hostage during their marriage, Mandy Moore enthusiastically spoke about returning to singing.

“I’ll be recording music during the [This Is Us] hiatus,” the actress told reporters at a set visit at Paramount Studios last week.

When asked by PEOPLE if her husband Taylor Goldsmith, who is the frontman for Dawes, will be creating new projects with her, Moore was giddy with excitement.

“Yes! With my husband! We have things written, ready to go,” she said. “Our hiatus starts soon, so I’m getting ready to go in the studio.”

This Is Us fans may already be familiar with Goldsmith’s work as he co-wrote an original song called “Invisible Ink” for a season 3 episode, which aired before the couple tied the knot in November. (Moore and Goldsmith got engaged in September 2017 after they’d been dating for two years.)

This Is Us executive producer Isaac Aptaker previously told Entertainment Weekly that the producers had Goldsmith in mind for quite a while. “We wanted to bring him in for something,” he said, adding that Moore “was so excited from the beginning. They collaborate on stuff outside the show, and he’s part of the This is Us extended family, so she was all in.”

Elizabeth Berger, another executive producer on the show, also spoke about Goldsmith and Moore’s chemistry, both on and off the screen. “They just absolutely love working together, and they find a lot of joy from it, so we were just looking for the perfect fit,” she told EW.

Moore revealed her plans for new music less than a week before the release a New York Times exposé, in which she claimed Adams took charge of her music career in 2010, three years after they first met when she was 23.
