Mandy Moore Shares The Sweetest Message With 'A Walk To Remember' Co-Star Shane West

17 years ago, A Walk to Remember starring Mandy Moore and Shane West premiered, introducing the world to one of pop culture's favorite onscreen romances. Though Moore and West never pursued a relationship offscreen, they've remained friends to this day, as evidenced by an absolutely adorable memory Moore shared with E! News.


Shane, who is now an actor on Gotham, was sitting down for an interview with E! to reminisce about his time shooting the classic romance. He spoke of Moore, now a star of This is Us, saying:

"Mandy was phenomenal and my best friend when we were working on that."

That's when E! decided to surprise the actor with a video message from Moore!

Mandy's message to Shane was short, simple, and very sweet:

"Hi Shane! Happy 17th anniversary—I know we exchanged some Instagram DM's about the big event, but congrats on everything you have going on in your world and let's...like...hang, dude! Let's go get some coffee and catch up, because it's been too long. Like we need a good one-on-one hang. So, um, let's do that! Have a good one!"

Fans were delighted that the pair are still good friends!




And of course, West and Moore's "conversation" had many social media users thinking about their love for their movie.




The small hello reminded Shane of the day Director Adam Shankman took the pair aside and told them:

"Prepare for the rest of your lives to be changed."

The movie would change both of its stars career trajectories forever:

"We hadn't had anything that had been a success like that, so that will probably be on of my favorite memories."




Could there be a better excuse to re-watch A Walk to Remember? I don't think so!

While starting a family and having children is a goal that many people have, some do not realize that it's not easy, fun, and loving one-hundred percent of the time. Rather, it's expensive, exhausting, and hard, though it might be worth it in the end.

With this in mind, people shared what they felt were the hardest hurdles of their parenting.

Positive emotions are high among people in the blossoming phase of relationships.

Everything seems more romanticized for people in love due to the amorous joy in their hearts–which also influences their desire to frequently get it on under the sheets–or any other daring location in the heat of the moment.

But for those who've declared "'til death do us part," devoted couples may find that they are not always on the same wavelength sexually compared to when they first met.

There are a number of things people partake in spite of the known possible ramifications they have on their health and safety.

Up to and including smoking, bungee-jumping, recreational drug use, or simply bike riding without a helmet.

Indeed, even though they know that doing any or all of these things could possibly lead to their death, they do it anyway.

Sadly, even though many people go out of their way to avoid doing these things for that very reason, that still doesn't mean they keep themselves completely out of danger.

Sadly, there are a surprisingly large number of things that lead to an even more surprising number of deaths each year.

Frighteningly, these are things that the majority of the world's population does on an almost daily basis.

When Americans visit a foreign country, they tend to notice immediate cultural differences from the minute they step off the plane.

Unique bathroom designs, how you might have to be more specific when ordering coffee in Australia, how many businesses in Spain tend to shut down for a few hours to take a siesta.

Needless to say, this goes both ways, as when people from all over the world visit the United States, they tend to be surprised and amazed by a number of things.

Ranging from the amusing, such as portion sizes and ineffective tea brewing (at least for the Brits) to the truly baffling (HEALTHCARE).
