Mandy Moore hasn’t shared much in the past about her mom and brothers, but the actress recently opened up about her family. The This Is Us star revealed that her mother and both of her brothers are gay.
In an interview with Byrdie, the actress admits she’s never really talked about it before. Apparently, her mother left her father for a woman!
“I’ve never really talked about this, but my parents are divorced. My mother left my father for a woman. And both of my two brothers are gay.”
Despite her parent’s divorce, Moore has no ill will and maintains the fact that she had a lovely upbringing.
“My parents loved each other; they did an incredible job raising all of us,” she said.
Moore also admitted that her failed marriage to rocker Ryan Adams may have been her way of seeking out her “own kind of normalcy” after her “seemingly traditional” family was breaking apart.
“I learned that that wasn’t going to be the fruitful experience I wanted it to be,” she said of her marriage.
Moore also believes that her parents divorce was a blessing in disguise.
“Everyone’s so much happier, richer, and more fulfilled, being their authentic selves,” she said.
Aw! Well, that’s great then.
