Why Mandy Moore Cried During Final “This Is Us” Scene With Milo Ventimiglia

It’s always hard to say goodbye. For Mandy Moore, saying farewell to the beloved show “This Is Us” might just be the most difficult one yet.

“This Is Us” is a critically-acclaimed TV series that has been tugging at everyone’s heartstrings for six seasons.

In an interview with Variety, Moore recounted her memories of filming the final scenes of the show. The final episode aired on May 24, 2022.

“It very much echoes the way you feel about the end of a very seminal part of your life. I take what William’s character said in the previous episode to heart – if something does make you sad, it’s because you really loved it while it was unfolding, while it was happening.”

The 38-year-old actress shared that keeping her tears at bay while filming the final scene was difficult. But it’s a good thing that she had co-star Milo Ventimiglia by her side through it all.

“That’s my partner of six seasons and it’s like, ‘Wow, we really did this together. We were Mom and Dad.’”

She explained that Ventimiglia “had a tissue ball underneath the pillow for me. Each take, Milo would very gingerly help me flip the pillow over so you didn’t see the tear stains.”

Moore fondly recalled how her co-star would hand her “my little wad of tissues to sop up the tears.”

This kind of display was “so indicative of our relationship and the way we always supported each other and had each other’s back. It was effortless from the beginning, and it was effortless through the end.”

“I acknowledge that I will never, ever have an on-screen partner like Milo again. It’s so rare to connect with someone on that level. In every way, this job was once in a lifetime,” she concluded.

Well, the show might be ending, but Mandy Moore’s style is still flourishing.

Case in point: the Khoon Hooi Spring 2022 ensemble that she wore at this year’s PaleyFest LA. This all-black look was a welcome change as we’re used to seeing the actress in bright colors and striking patterns.

She wore the sleeveless Alexandra top that featured an embellished bodice, subtle pleated detailing, and a feathered trim.

Moore styled it with the Helena skirt, which added a playful element to her look. She finished it off with a dark red lip, simple jewelry, and a pair of strappy heels.

Perhaps her best red carpet look to date is the ethereal Elie Saab dress she wore for this year’s Critics Choice Awards.

It was a stark contrast from the all-black Khoon Hooi ensemble or the tailored designs of her previous looks.

This time, she opted for a floor-length dress in a gorgeous champagne hue from the Spring 2022 Haute Couture collection.

She looked like a Grecian goddess with its exquisite beading, cape-like detail, and flowy silhouette.

The plunging neckline added a sultry touch to this dress, making it a bold yet perfect choice for the star.

Her half-up and half-down hairstyle showcased her stunning drop earrings from Beladora. She rounded out her look with minimal makeup, a Beladora Art Deco ring, and Jimmy Choo sandals.

This was a stellar red carpet look and easily one of the best at the star-studded event. We can’t wait to see more stylish moments from Mandy Moore.

In early June 2013, Mandy Moore arrived at LAX looking super cool in metallic Golden Goose sneakers.
