For nearly a decade, Mandy Moore was the epitome of the girl next door. From her exuberant radio-friendly pop hits to her squeaky clean performance in the tearjerker A Walk to Remember, the singer and actress was a dream girl for every kid who came of age in the 2000s.
Relive the good ol' days with her 1999 debut single "Candy."
At 33, Moore's no longer a teenage queen. She now stars on the acclaimed NBC sobfest This Is Us, which nabbed her a Golden Globe nomination for her time-spanning performance as matriarch Rebecca Pearson.
