Actor Mandy Moore says she was left “emotionally scarred” by Justin Timberlake when she was 15, as he told her she had big feet.
Moore first came to prominence with her 1999 debut single, ‘Candy’.
The 32-year-old singer, songwriter and actor, who started out her career as a teenager went on tour with Timberlake’s former band NYSNC, and has revealed that a conversation she had with the 35-year-old has haunted her ever since, reported Female First.
“I had background dancers at the time because that’s what you did. I remember distinctly one time walking backstage and I didn’t really see much of the guys because I was just the opening act, nobody cared about me.”But Justin Timberlake was there, and there was a conversation about feet or foot size, they were comparing shoe sizes.
And all the background dancers were there, the NSYNC background dancers and my background dancers. And stroll up at 15, freaking out that Justin Timberlake is there and he’s like ‘You have big feet for a girl’,” Moore said.
The This Is Us star says she doesn’t hold it against the singer as she is sure he can’t recall the incident.
“I’m sure he doesn’t remember this at all, but I was so impressionable and I thought the world of him. He was on a pedestal, and I mean 16 years later it’s stuck with me. It really scarred me emotionally.”
