(98.7AMP RADIO) – Mandy Moore is still reeling from a comment Justin Timberlake made to her over 15 years ago.
Back when the This is Us actress was launching her career as a pop star (who could forget “Candy”?!), she tour with *NSYNC as their opening act.
Though Moore rarely interacted with the guys of the band while on the road, she did once have a memorable encounter with JT, and she told the story while guesting on The Late Late Show with James Corden this week.
“I remember distinctly one time walking backstage, and I didn’t really see much of the guys because I was the measly opening act,” she recalled. “But Justin Timberlake was there and somehow there was a conversation about feet or foot size. They were comparing shoe size. And all the background dancers and *NSYNC background dancers and my background dancers, and I stroll up at 15 like freaking out that Justin Timberlake is there.”Unfortunately, that’s when the fantasy ended for Moore.”He was like, ‘You have big feet for a girl,’” she told James Corden. “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.”
While Moore does cop to the fact that she has size 10 feet, she also makes sure to clarify that she’s “5 feet 10 inches tall.”
“It was embarrassing,” she concluded.
