Born in 1984 in Orlando, Fla., Mandy Moore was put on tour opening for the Backstreet Boys in 1999, virtually guaranteeing that her debut album So Real would go platinum.
Among the blonde teen-pop princesses, Moore’s albums received more criticism than, and never sold as well as, the others.
But, she cleverly turned her image on its head with movie roles in The Princess Diaries and Saved!.
Moore had dated many hot Hollywood bachelors, including Wilmer Valderrama and Zach Braff.
In March 2009, Moore quietly wed her rocker beau Ryan Adams.
