Mandy Moore has lashed out at an unnamed publication for withdrawing an interview after she refused to discuss her relationship with ex-husband Ryan Adams.
The This Is Us star took to her Instagram stories to reveal her anger and frustration at the situation, which she said was forcing her to relive trauma.
Moore, 36, said that her “blood is still boiling” that the interview was pulled unless she delved into the subject of her ex.
She shared a screenshot of the email from the publication that read: “If Mandy doesn’t want to talk about this though we have to respect that and it would be wrong for us to proceed with the interview.”
It is clear that the topic at hand is Moore’s relationship with her ex-husband, the singer-songwriter Adams, to who she was married from 2009 to 2016.
In 2019, Moore said that Adams, who also faced a spate of sexual misconduct allegations from multiple women, was psychologically abusive during their marriage.
Moore accompanied this email with a public statement.
“This is from a publication who reached out eager to do a comprehensive piece on my life and career,” Mandy wrote. “When they were told that I had spoken plenty about a certain subject in my life and would have no further comment (truly there are countless interviews they could pull from, that story is over and there’s nothing more to say) this was the response we got back.”
Moore explained: “When they (the publication) were told that I had spoken plenty about a certain subject in my life and would have no further comment (truly there are countless interviews they could pull from, that story is over and there’s nothing more to say.)
“Any comment I make about said experience becomes clickbait and gives them the energy and time they seek and have already stolen from too many for too long.”
Mandy called the interview cancellation “so out of touch with the cultural discussion around abusive relationships,” and she urged against “directly linking someone’s value back to their abuser.”
“I have been in this business for over two decades with plenty to chat about and sure, this publication can do as they please, but the message this sends is insulting and so out of touch with the cultural discussion around abusive relationships, directly linking someone’s value back to their abuser,” she said.
Moore finished her message with a condemnation of the publication, concluding: “The refusal to interview someone unless they agree to relive that trauma publicly? No thank you. I am about to give birth any second and I’m not afraid to draw healthy boundaries. Bye.”
