With a starring role on the hit series This Is Us, Mandy Moore is arguably one of the most talked-about actresses on television today. That exposure comes with its ups and downs, of course — but when it comes to the seemingly inevitable rumors of plastic surgery that celebrities come up against, Moore has a firm message for speculators.
Moore says she's well aware that there's chatter about "getting work done," but she's not backing down from giving a response. (Even though, for the record, no celebrity owes the public an answer or explanation for the decision to have plastic surgery.) In a conversation with Popsugar, the actress addressed rumors that she had plastic surgery with humor and honesty. The big takeaway? She doesn't give those rumors any more attention than she needs to.
"I remember seeing some blog post that said I got a nose job," Moore said in the interview. "I was like, 'That's weird — my nose is pretty imperfect.' I have a crinkled part underneath the bridge of my nose and I remember laughing like, 'I feel like I would have fixed that had I had a nose job.' I don't know, maybe it was just a weird picture or weird makeup or shading or something."
Moore went on to share that those rumors are pretty pervasive in her industry: "People think everyone in Hollywood has had a nose job or some work done, but it's not always true. People are going to believe what they want, and that's fine," she said. "And if having work done is going to make somebody feel better about themselves, then more power to them."
In previous interviews, Moore has discussed becoming more self-assured as she's grown up in Hollywood; now in her thirties, she's said that the only person whose opinion matters to her now is her own. “You give less of a shit about how the world perceives you,” she said in her November 2018 Glamour cover story. “Now it’s more important to me to be self-satisfying. And I’m better at that. It just comes with time.”
