Mandy Moore Won 'Tangled' Role Over Rachel Bilson

Tangled_rapunzel_MandyMoore_RachelBilson

Rachel Bilson reveals in the November 2011 edition of Nylon Magazine that she auditioned to play Rapunzel in the 2010 Disney classic, "Tangled!"

"I sang 'Hallelujah' by Leonard Cohen and I went in before Mandy Moore!" notes the "Hart of Dixie" star. "I was totally mortified. It was just me, her, and her husband, Ryan Adams, who is an amazing musician. I was like 'Hi!' 'You can really sing!' I felt like such an a**."

All's well that ends well, we think!

In other news, we were thrilled to hear about a pair of well-deserved Grammy nominations for "Tangled," recently! Announced December 1st, 2011 for the 54th Annual Grammy Awards, the nominations include Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media ("Tangled Soundtrack") and Best Song Written for Visual Media ("I See The Light").

Interestingly, in the soundtrack category, "Tangled" goes up against another pop culture titan in "Glee: The Music, Volume 4." In the meantime, check out this amazing compilation video featuring "I See The Light!"

Mandy Moore Stuns in Monique Lhuillier!

MandyMooreCriticsChoiceAwards2011MandyMooreGoldenGlobes2011

Dubbed a "surprising show-stopper" by the Los Angeles Times, Mandy Moore's "eye-catching" gown left critics speechless on the red carpet at the 83rd Annual Academy Awards.

Indeed, as the superlatives flowed, so did Mandy's second dress, in a floral-inspired Oscar-night revelation designed for Mandy's primetime performance alongside Tangled co-star, Zachary Levi.

In true form for the fashion-forward Disney princess, Mandy's fashion was in a word, idylic. Known for often playing coy when it comes to favoring designers, the red carpet was just another stylish example of Mandy's latest taste for one of L.A.'s hottest designers, Monique Lhuillier.

Hitting the red carpet in January, Mandy rocked Lhuillier's sensational style in a plum-colored floorlength, strapless dress at the 2011 Critics Choice Awards. Paired with a pair of chandelier earrings and a low-swept updo, Mandy made a statement described by one critic as "classic red carpet style."

Attending the 2011 Golden Globes just days later, Mandy dazzled critics in a Lhuillier-designed, mermaid-inspired blue gown. Paired with her classic brunette waves and a natural glow, Mandy chose classic Chopard jewelry to complete the one-of-a-kind look.

Looking beautiful, as always, Mandy!

Bedazzling fans on Hollywood's biggest and brightest stage, Mandy Moore rocked the 83rd Annual Academy Awards, Sunday night.

Oscar himself had to be impressed by Mandy's red carpet stunner by noted designer Monique Lhuillier. Effortless yet exquisite, Mandy's pale jewel-encrusted gown caught even the most vocal commentators off-guard with a fitted-aesthetic that one critic described as "hand-dipped."

A featured performer on Awards night, Mandy followed one show-stopper with yet another as she donned a Lhuillier-designed, floral-inspired blue strapless gown for a rendition of "I See the Light" with her "Tangled" co-star, Zachary Levi

An immense honor for the 26 year old starlet, Mandy's performance also celebrated a well-deserved Oscar nomination for Disney's landmark 50th animated feature film, "Tangled," released November 2010.

Mandy Moore in Disney's Tangled Hits Theaters Today!

Tangled-poster-tangled-16533922-550-816 Mandy Moore fans rejoice, Tangled hits theaters today!

An adaption of the popular German fairytale made famous by the Brothers Grimm, Tangled tells the story of Rapunzel, a beautiful young woman forced to spend her entire life imprisoned in a solitary tower. Aided by her long, flowing locks of long blonde hair, Rapunzel's life is suddenly transformed by a chance meeting with a brash young bandit.

Voiced by the gorgeous Mandy Moore, Rapunzel is a memorable new princess. "[Rapunzel] is definitely the quintessential sassy, young Disney heroine," says Mandy. "She's a bit of a spitfire too, and a very curious young woman. She's really curious about the world she's never really seen, and she's coming into her own."

Set to music by the same songwriter responsible for The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin, Tangled also benefits from a royal pedigree of sorts."In the case of [the film], I think the name Disney on it makes all the difference. It gives permission to the fact that it is a musical," notes the iconic Alan Menken. "A lot of what I've done has a rock edge...[but] Tangled is my most pop-oriented."

Ironically, Rapunzel may join Disney's elite cast of royalty not for her tresses, but for her more intrinsic qualities. "She's not a victim, she's not naive," not Mandy. "She's open and warm, engaged, spirited and ready to embrace the unknown -- whatever comes her way. I love that."

We love it too. Catch Tangled in 2D and 3D opening today, November 24th, 2010 at theaters nationwide!

MandyMooreBlog.com Presents Mandy Moore's Wrap-Up: October!

As we prepare to dedicate another exclusive edition of Mandy Moore's Monthly Wrap-Up, we'd like to first congratulate Ryan Adams on a great 36th birthday. May there be many Moore to come!

Mandymoore2010_Omagazine

With the release of Tangled less than two months away, October started with a bang as Mandy shot an eight page spread for the November 2010 issue of O Magazine. Sporting a classy blend of Fall/Winter styles from the likes of Jason Wu, Ralph Lauren and D&G, Mandy channeled an outdoorsy vibe with earthier pieces from Woolrich and J Crew. "Fall has always been my favorite time," noted the brown-haired beauty."That sense of renewal is so engrained from school."

Mandymoore2010_greysanatomy

On another note, Mandy paid homage to prime time TV this month as she appeared for the second time on ABC's hit show, Grey's Anatomy. Airing October 28th, the episode features a documentary film crew's visit to Seattle Grace just six months after the dramatic shooting spree that closed out season 6. Appearing for a final course of treatment after a lengthy series of traveling, Mandy makes a point to remind Dr. Miranda Bailey that she has learned that "life is short." Thought-provoking and at the same heart-breaking, this is one episode not to be missed.

October was also the month for interviews as Mandy appeared for a late night chat with Jimmy Kimmel on ABC. Dressed to kill in a little black dress, Mandy waxed poetic on the "cathartic" nature of vacuuming, and a Halloween potluck involving the arrival of some very embarrassing "herbal"-laced cookies. Discussing the upcoming release of Disney's Tangled, Kimmel celebrated the film with a showcase of several signing Rapunzel dolls, now available at Disney's online store. Despite being one of our favorites, Jimmy Kimmel Live was just one of Mandy's scheduled appearances. She was also featured in an exclusive article on SheKnows.com.

As the month came and went, we could barely contain ourselves over the release of several new previews for Disney's latest animated feature film, Tangled! The film even earned its very own attraction at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA which was kicked off by none other than Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi!

Don't miss its debut in theaters, November 24th, 2010!!

Stop the presses: MandyMooreBlog.com is gearing up for another exciting edition of Mandy Moore's Monthly Wrap-Up!

MandyMoore_StandUptoCancer2010

The gorgeous Mandy Moore stood up in a big way in September, as she joined Natasha Bedingfield, Katie Couric, Laura Linney, and a host of other stars on Stand Up To Cancer 2010, airing September 10th. A participant in 2008's inaugural cancer fundraiser, Mandy helped raise more than $100 million dollars during the live hour-long event, simulcast on most major networks throughout the United States. Mandy, who has taken part in a number of health campaigns of late, also appeared on camera to make a personal plea for research dollars towards her personal area of emphasis, cervical cancer.

On the heels of a bit of successful fundraising, Mandy continued the month with the exciting release of the full-length trailer for her soon-to-be blockbuster hit, Tangled! Described as "adorbs" by gossip queen Perez Hilton, the promo is a smashing tapestry of action, comedy, and romance. Plus, how cute is Mandy's character!

MandyMoore_Malaria2010

As this month came to a close, we were nothing but short of impressed to find Mandy fighting malaria in the Central African Republic with Nothing But Nets (NBN). A grassroots organization involved in malaria prevention through advocacy, procurement, and distribution of free nets, NBN has recently posted a number of photos and updates through Facebook and Twitter. Incidentally, we couldn't help but notice they've dubbed their life-saving nets as Moore Nets (video)

It's good to be back. And don't forget to add MandyMooreBlog.com on Facebook and Twitter!
