Mandy Moore has revealed that Justin Timberlake emotionally scarred her as an impressionable teen trying to make it in the music business.
While appearing as a guest on The Late Late Show with James Corden, the 32-year-old said she was once the opening act on an NSYNC tour when she was still relatively unknown.
“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,” she said.
“But Justin Timberlake was there, and there was a conversation about feet or foot size, they were comparing shoe sizes…”
“And stroll up at 15, freaking out that Justin Timberlake is there and he’s like ‘You have big feet for a girl.’”
The comment has stuck with her ever since, she says.
“I’m sure he doesn’t remember this at all, but I was so impressionable and I thought the world of him,” she explained. “He was on a pedestal, and I mean 16 years later it’s stuck with me.”
“It really scarred me emotionally.”
That’s not nice, Justin!
