In a Passover Seder that would do Cyrus Rose proud, Mandy Moore, Ryan Adams, and Minka Kelly shared the festive holiday with pal, Raina Penchansky, on Friday.
"Happy Passover and Happy Good Friday... Excited to have Seder with @rp1313 and co this evening!!" tweeted Mandy.
While the event marked Mandy's first (known) Seder, it is not the first time she has been spotting recently with pal, Minka Kelly. Attending Brad Goreski's West Hollywood party together on March 14th, Mandy celebrated her birthday with the radiant fellow actress this past Tuesday.
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."
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.
On May 2nd, Mandy continued the fight against malaria in Africa. With increased awareness of South Africa due to this year's World Cup, Mandy took to her popular Twitter-feed to join government leaders, professional athletes, and entertainment insiders in support of UnitedAgainstMalaria.com. Dedicated to combatting malaria, the site encourages both awareness and direct action in stopping the disease.
"An African child dies of malaria every 30 seconds -- use your voice to change that," urged Mandy. "Show world leaders you're committed to sending nets and saving lives," she continued. "Ours is the generation that can end malaria. Join me and use your voice to make history and save lives. "
With a keen eye towards helping stopping the spread of malaria, Mandy's latest efforts come on behalf of UnitedAgainstMalaria.org. Organized by leaders in government, professional sports, and entertainment sectors, UnitedAgainstMalaria.org uses the upcoming World Cup soccer tournament to promote malaria-relief through awareness and direct action.
Fans may remember Mandy's first efforts at malaria-awareness through a high-profile trip to Southern Sudan in 2009. Joining forces with Population Services International (PSI) and the Global Fund, Mandy launched an unprecedented initiative bringing three million new mosquito nets to aid in the country's ongoing fight against malaria.
Marking the newest campaign for Coach's trendy Poppy collection, Mandy's voice can be heard as she recites a selection of free verse by Russian born fiction writer, essayist, and book critic, Irina Reyn. Entitled "A New York City Saturday, Springtime," it tells the imaginative story of a young woman's life in the heart of the Big Apple.
Ending on a surprising note, the verse concludes without an ending. Asking viewers to submit their desired conclusion in 900 characters or less, the winner is promised publication on Coach.com.
