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.

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.

Following 2013’s ‘Wrecking Ball,’ Cyrus’ second-ever No. 1 single, ‘Flowers,” is also her first to debut at the top of the charts.

SZA has gladly shared her spotlight with other legendary female musicians in recent weeks, and the tribute to Cyrus is no exception. 

Following erroneous rumors from fans that the two were competing against one another for chart success in real life, SZA praised Taylor Swift’s Midnights and wished her luck on the unprecedented Hot 100 reign of lead single ‘Anti-Hero’ earlier this month.

“Congratulations to tay tay! And thank you so much your album and writing is phenomenal ..as ALWAYS,” SZA posted on her Instagram story.

Not to mention, SZA claimed to Rolling Stone that she and Lizzo recorded “five or six songs” at an SOS session, despite Lizzo not appearing on the album’s tracklist. 

Prior to that, the ‘I hate U’ singer revealed to Hot97’s Nessa On Air that several people she had hoped would be featured on the album had not submitted their verses.

Cyrus’ eighth studio album, Endless Summer Vacation coming on March 10, 2023, is the one thing people can count on right now, and she and SZA will probably continue to rule the charts for weeks to come.
