Even though Mandy Moore and Shane West finished filming A Walk to Remember two decades ago, they didn’t call it quits on their friendship.
The same-titled 1999 novel by author Nicholas Sparks served as the basis for the Adam Shankman-directed 2002 movie starring Moore and West.
Moore portrayed the role of Jamie Sullivan, while West played the role of Landon Carter. The plot centers on the passionate but tragic love affair of two North Carolina teenagers, Jamie and Landon, who become closer when the latter is made to complete community service.

It has been over 20 years since A Walk to Remember debuted in theaters in 2002. For its 20th anniversary, the actress exclusively revealed to Keltie Knight of E! News whether she and West still speak.
“We still connect via text,” the This Is Us star assured everyone. She also mentioned that when she was making the movie where she first met West, she was only 17 years old.
Before being cast as Jamie, Moore was a well-known pop artist but still a relative newcomer to acting. In reality, the Emmy nominee’s “first big job” as a leading actress was A Walk to Remember.
The 38-year-old actress confessed she relied on Once and Again actor to help her because she “knew nothing” about leading a movie and was relatively new to the entertainment industry.
‘Candy’ singer said, “Sweet Shane had to teach me how to hit my mark, about looking down to look at it before I completely stopped.”

Looking back on their time together on set, Moore, on the 20th anniversary of the movie, also shared a picture of her with West and Shankman along with a lovely message.
The caption read, “20 years ago, “A Walk to Remember” premiered in theatres. It unequivocally changed the course of my life and career and these 2 gentlemen were such a large part of it all.”
Did Mandy Moore and Shane West date each other?
Moore and West did not date each other even though both publicly admitted having feelings for one another while filming A Walk to Remember via People.
Nonetheless, they maintained their professionalism on set despite having a crush on one another.
The Ocean’s Eleven actor asserted they always kept it professional because they inherently cared about each other.
He continued, “I think when you do [have an attraction] and you’re doing such a sweet story that it just makes it very easy.”
On set, there was a “very much a family” vibe, West claimed. The actress was not yet 21, and he claimed it was more of a love situation in which all the cast members were just out to protect her.
But even the film’s director could see they were attracted to one another. Shankman claimed he could still tell they had crushes on each other, but Moore had a boyfriend at the time.
“I don’t think Shane had a girlfriend at the time,” the director added, noting that he could tell that there was a lot of chemistry between the two.

Goode and Marie have been together for the past two years, and the pair often share glimpses into their relationship via Instagram.
Recently, the 36-year-old television actress took their commitment to a whole new level by getting matching tattoos with her girlfriend, Marie.
A few weeks back, she teased fans with a peek of Marie getting a tattoo on her Instagram Story. Another Instagram Story showed the pair showing off their new tattoo while they hid the design.
However, last week, Goode finally revealed their new tattoo, showing a branch with three leaves tattooed in the same spot on their forearms, writing, “Enjoying the little things in life.”
Jasmine Goode and Melissa Marie have been dating for 2 years
Goode and Marie have been in a relationship for two years, since 2021. Their love story began after Goode’s appearance on Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor, where she didn’t find love but ultimately found it off-screen with her girlfriend Marie.
While the details of how they first crossed paths remain unknown to the world, their love has been on full display as they’ve walked several red carpets together as a couple.
For instance, on December 9, 2021, they walked the red carpet together at Katie Welch and Jordan Kuker’s 8th Annual Winter Wonderland Toys for Tots Charity Event.
A close look at Jasmine Goode’s girlfriend Melissa Marie
Goode’s girlfriend, Marie, is a private person who prefers to stay away from the glitz and glamour of the entertainment industry.
Unlike Goode, Marie doesn’t seem to be associated with reality TV shows or fame, as indicated by her low-profile presence on Instagram.
Instead, she is an entrepreneur who has a background in athletics, having been an athlete during her college years.
More on Jasmine Goode

The TV star hasn’t just appeared on-screen, but she has also contributed behind the scenes. She received two production credits in 2018—one for the TV show This Is LA and the other for the movie Socio.

The actors, who had been together since 2017, finally took their relationship to the next level and finally tied the knot after being together for six years.
Kiana Madeira and Lovell Adams-Gray’s wedding was straight out of a fairytale
Madeira and her husband Adams-Gray exchanged their wedding vows on September 10, 2023, at Casa Loma in Toronto.
The pair shared the news via Instagram, writing, “It was everything that we prayed for, and more. We are officially Mr. & Mrs. Adams-Gray,” alongside several wedding pictures.
The actors who got engaged in January 2020 were surrounded by 200 guests at the castle-style mansion, Casa Loma, the perfect fit for their “ethereal royalty” wedding theme.
The Fear Street actress said, “It was a dream come true. A fairytale,” while her actor husband noted, “It was everything we prayed for, and more” to the People magazine.
Madeira wore an off-the-shoulder lace and tulle gown embellished with flowers and butterflies by Luca Sposa that she got from Liza Ray. With a custom-made matching Tania Maras veil, she completed the bridal look.
“This dress was the number one on my list from the very beginning when I saw it online and trying it on at Liza Ray in N.Y.C. just solidified my love for it,” she said to the outlet.
She flaunted a custom Tania Maras pearl choker and earrings by Karáhkwa Jewelry, an indigenous Canadian brand, and pearl-covered shoes by Charlotte Mills.
The Trinkets actress walked down the aisle to Justin Timberlake’s song ‘Pair of Wings’ played by the Soenen Sisters.
On the other hand, Adams-Gray wore a custom-made white three-piece suit from Alan David Custom Suits N.Y.C. and dress shoes by Luca Del Forte.

Pastor Samuel Kenga officiated the pair’s wedding, and they signed the registers in front of their close family and friends.
For the reception, the newlyweds changed their outfits as the actress swapped her gown for a short halter dress and her husband changed to a purple and a white suit.
The guests were served a four-course dinner, which consisted of salad, ravioli, 72-hour braised short rib, and dessert.
The newlywed couple are currently busy honeymooning in Portugal before they return to their busy life. The actress shared lovely pictures of their getaway on September 24, 2023, writing, “Our first travel experience as husband and wife.”
Kiana Madeira and Lovell Adams-Gray have been together since 2017
Madeira and Adams-Gray first met during an NBA All-Star weekend in 2016, and after a year, he finally asked Madeira to be his girlfriend in 2017.
After dating for several years, the pair got engaged in January 2020. However, it wasn’t until February 2020 that the After Everything actress announced the engagement news via Instagram.
Showing off her engagement ring, she wrote, “Your words are my serenity and this love inside of me is bursting at it’s seams.”
In 2020, Madeira moved to New York City to be with Adams-Gray while he was filming Power Book II: Ghost. He took advantage of the opportunity to take their relationship further with a romantic proposal.
When the actress got to Adams-Gray’s apartment, she discovered a large cardboard box in the living room and stargazer lilies leading to it.
She opened the box and discovered Adams-Gray lurking inside, down on one knee, with a stunning ring in his hand. He proposed, and she said “yes” right away.
DJ Diplo Gets Accused of Giving a Fan STDs amid AIDS Controversy
DJ Diplo has faced multiple accusations of transmitting STDs and AIDS.
American DJ Diplo has recently come under scrutiny as he faces accusations of transmitting sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) to a fan amidst an ongoing AIDS controversy.
During a recent episode of the Let’s Get Into It Podcast, Sloan Hooks interviewed a fan who shared a shocking revelation about her experience with Diplo. The interviewee disclosed she contracted STDs from the DJ.
She explained that Diplo had consistently emphasized his rigorous STD testing regimen, comparing it to that of a star, which led her to believe he was free of infections and subsequently led them to engage in intimate activities without using contraceptives.
Later, when the host inquired how she could be sure that DJ was the one who transmitted the STDs, she explained that he was the only sexual partner with whom she had been intimate without using contraception.
The woman went on to elaborate, revealing that in the beginning, she hesitated to attribute the source of the infection to Diplo because she was apprehensive about his reactions every time she brought up the topic of STDs.
She also shared the details of how she discovered she had chlamydia. She explained that after her first intimate encounter with DJ, she developed a rash on her body and experienced discomfort. It was at that point that she decided to get tested, which led to the diagnosis of an STD.
After the shocking revelation, TheTeaTalk’s official page promptly shared a particular segment of the podcast video.
The caption accompanying the post reads, “Uh gross?! DJ #diplo is allegedly out here taking V cards and giving fans STDs #sloanhooks interviewed a not-so-lucky fan on his #letsgetintoit podcast who details her horrific experience with the famous DJ!”
Upon seeing TheTeaTalk’s post, fans and followers swiftly expressed their opinions in the comment section. One individual remarked, ”I believe her, to be honest.”
Similarly, another commenter shared, “Diplo is well-known in the industry for allegedly targeting young Black women and exerting pressure on them to engage in activities for the sake of their career, often funded by him or for financial gain.”
This is not the first time DJ has faced controversy related to sexual health. Recently, TikTok influencer Shelly Auguste accused the DJ of engaging in unprotected intimacy with multiple girls, including herself, and alleged that he might have transmitted HIV/AIDS to many of them.
Auguste detailed her experiences with Diplo in a viral video of 4 minutes and 19 seconds. She mentioned that about 1 or 2 years ago, she came across the story of a girl who had come forward about being diagnosed with AIDS.
To her dismay, she also recognized that this was the same girl to whom DJ had sent an intimate video. Auguste then speculated that the girl’s AIDS diagnosis might have been a result of her intimate involvement with DJ.
Furthermore, in an October 2020 complaint submitted to the Los Angeles Police Department, a 25-year-old woman accused Diplo of surreptitiously recording sexually explicit videos of her without her consent.

The complaint also made the serious allegation that he intentionally transmitted a sexually transmitted infection to another person.
Back then, Diplo disagreed with the accusations and posted a lengthy message in his defense. However, now he hasn’t addressed the issue of him transmitting STDs to the women.
