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.
