Mandy Moore has revealed that she was left "emotionally scarred" after Justin Timberlake mocked her while on tour with the 'N Sync in 1999. This Is Us actress was 15 years old back then.
Speaking with James Corden on The Late Late Show on Tuesday night, the actress/singer said that there was this one comment of the Friends with Benefits actor that haunts her still.
"I remember distinctly one time walking backstage, and I didn't really see much of the guys because I was the measly opening act," the 32-year-old actress said. (Via E!News)
"Nobody cared about me, but Justin Timberlake and somehow there was a conversation about feet or foot size. They were comparing shoe size. And all the background dancers and 'N Sync background dancers and my background dancers, and I stroll up at 15 like freaking out that Justin Timberlake is there."
When Moore met the actor/singer Timberlake, she was mocked for her "big feet".
"He was like, 'You have big feet for a girl,'" she recalled him saying. "I'm sure he doesn't remember this at all but I was so impressionable, and I thought the world of him and he was on a pedestal. I mean 16 years later it stuck with me, so it really scarred me emotionally."
"I'm 5-foot-10!" Moore said, adding, "I [was] going through puberty at the time." "Yeah, it was embarrassing."
A Walk to Remember actress also said that she was embarrassed about her lack of dancing skills.
"Dancing [was the hardest part]," she told Corden, reports US Magazine. "I have no rhythm. I'm super awkward. I think the powers that be realized very early on, You know what, you should just have background dancers."
