Mandy Moore Throws It Back To ‘The Princess Diaries’ In The Most Perfect Way

Leave a comment

Mandy Moore is quickly becoming the queen of #ThrowbackThursday with all of her hilarious childhood photos, and shout outs to her old film and TV roles. Her latest throwback, however, might be the best of them all.

On Thursday (Feb. 15), Moore decided to share another blast-from-the-past picture on social media and it’s taking us back to the early ’00s. The This Is Us star posted a picture from The Princess Diaries and it’s making us feel super nostalgic.

“16 year old me with the inimitable @julieandrews and @heathermatarazzo on the set of #theprincessdiaries. #tbt #thosecurlstho,” Moore captioned the sweet photo from set.

As you can see, Moore is dressed in her high school best — she played mean girl, and cheerleader Lana in the movie — as she stands next to the iconic Julie Andrews (aka Queen Clarisse Renaldi) and Heather Matarazzo (who played Mia’s BFF Lilly Moscovitz). The picture is amazing (do you remember her having so many curls?!), and it makes us want a Princess Diaries reunion stat.

Even though this might be the only time we see Moore as a part of a Princess Diaries reunion (or photo), Julie Andrews and the film’s star Anne Hathaway, who played Mia Thermopolis in the two princess films, have previously talked about doing another film, so maybe this throwback will inspire the franchise to start working on another movie sooner rather than later.

In the meantime, we might just re-watch Moore’s iconic scene from The Princess Diaries. You know what we’re talking about… when she sang “Stupid Cupid” at the high school dance, duh!
