Mandy Moore Admits She 'Fell In Love' With Shane West During 'A Walk To Remember'—And We Feel You, Girl ❤️
MTV

Be still our teenage hearts. Our favorite young romance film, A Walk To Remember, just had it's sweet 16! The film, which starred Mandy Moore and Shane West in the lead roles, found incredible success on its release. Mandy was new on the scene at the time, Shane had a bit more experience. People fell in love with Mandy's vulnerability, her sweetness, and her talent. While the world was busy falling head over heels for Mandy, Moore was busy falling for Shane.


Moore and West had incredible chemistry on screen, and that may have been due to the fact that Mandy got a little caught up in playing pretend and found herself catching real feelings for Shane. She was a new actress and Shane was kind, patient, and helped her learn things quickly. Mandy admits she couldn't quite figure out if this was a crush, professional appreciation, or if she was just taking her role to heart a little too much.

She told Entertainment Weekly:

Shane was so cool. The way he dressed...and the music he listened to... He was the character to me and there was definitely a part of me that absolutely fell in love with him. I don't know if I could discern the difference between him and the character at that point in time because, again, it was my first experience doing anything like this and I was a 16-year-old, impressionable girl.

Moore also went on to talk about how Shane helped her to learn the ropes at a time when she knew, essentially, nothing.

Shane was so wonderful. I didn't know what I was doing and he'd done movies and he was on a critically acclaimed TV show. He had a lot of respect as an actor and I was just the total newbie. I didn't even know how to hit a mark, I was so fresh-faced and naive. I felt incredibly lucky right off the bat that I had someone who was as willing to work with me and who was patient and understanding. He was just the perfect partner for that.


So look, we totally get it. So does Twitter. When news of Mandy's crush on Shane hit the internet, internet responded like "same."








Let's take a stroll in Feels Field with these two.

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.
