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.”

BUSTLE.COM: Twenty years ago, music executives in midtown Manhattan’s Sony building were excited about a 14-year-old girl from Orlando. She’d just started her freshman year of high school back home in Florida, the number one song in the country was “I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing” by Aerosmith, and a month later in October 1998, Jive Records would release “…Baby One More Time.” That song would go on to top the charts in the United States and 18 other countries, become one of the best selling singles of all time, and launch Britney Spears into stardom with a propulsion so strong, the Earth would crack and little Britneys would spring from it and fight for their time in the sun.

She apologized for being late, which she wasn’t.

Mandy Moore and I are eating lunch 528 feet from that building where it all started two decades ago. “I was just looking at the Sony building thinking, whoa. If I had told myself 20 years ago that this would be my life, I’d still be doing this in some capacity, it’s insane.”

Mandy recently did an interview with Bustle. You can read the full article here. Click below for images, which were donated by Natalia.

HARPERSBAZAAR.COM: Mandy Moore has gone seamlessly from teenage pop star to rom-com queen to This Is Us actress and now, she’s dipping her toes in the fashion world. As Fossil’s newest ambassador, Moore stars in the brand’s Fall campaign, which features her watch designs and marks her first partnership in the fashion space.

To launch the collaboration, the This Is Us star hosted a dinner celebrating women and the power of female friendship on Saturday night. Nestled in the hills of Malibu, the evening unfolded at One Gun Ranch—a sustainable women-led farm co-owned by Alice Bamford and Anne Eysenring—complete with horses, roaming dogs and pigs, and incredible sunset views of Malibu.

Moore translated the campaign’s concept of authenticity and inspiring women into a dinner of the ladies who inspire her most—including This Is Us co-star Chrissy Metz and influencers like Emily Schuman, Marianna Hewitt, Jacey Duprie, and Katherine Schwarzenegger.

GLAMOUR.COM: Anyone who knows Mandy Moore will tell you she’s the nicest person they’ve ever met. Interviews refer to the 34-year-old as “America’s sweetheart” and “ the friend you’ve always wanted.” And while she appreciates the platitudes, they also make her a little uneasy. “I think those particular descriptors prevented me from finding momentum, workwise, because people saw me in one light,” she says. “There’s more to who I am.”

PARADE.COM: It can be a bit difficult to tell that Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia, who play a husband and wife on TV’s This Is Us, aren’t actually married in real life—or that all the actors in television’s most emotionally affecting intergenerational family aren’t actually a real family at all.

“We all love each other,” says Moore, 34. “We truly feel like a family.”

Moore and Ventimiglia play Rebecca and Jack Pearson on the Golden Globe–nominated hit NBC drama, which tells the touching, often wrenching story of the close-knit Pearson clan in heart-rending flashbacks as well as in the present day.

“In a given day, Mandy and I have been in scenes from the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s,” Ventimiglia says. “It’s fun to jump back in time. The ’80s are a happier time in the marriage and the kids are younger, while the ’90s are stressful because of what Jack and Rebecca are going through. It’s fun. It’s different from playing current-day scenes. There’s a bit of magic to it.”
