Actress Mandy Moore says she was left emotionally scarred by singer Justin Timberlake when she was 15.
Moore, who started her career as a teenager and went on tour with Timberlake’s former band NYSNC, says that a conversation she had with Timberlake has haunted her ever since, reports ew.com.
“I had background dancers at the time because that is what you did. I remember distinctly one time walking backstage and I didn’t really see much of the guys because I was just the opening act, nobody cared about me,” Moore said on the TV show “The Late Late Show”.
“But Justin Timberlake was there, and there was a conversation about feet or foot size, they were comparing shoe sizes. And all the background dancers were there, the NSYNC background dancers and my background dancers. And stroll up at 15, freaking out that Justin Timberlake is there and he’s like, ‘You have big feet for a girl’,” Moore said.
The “This Is Us” star says she doesn’t hold it against the singer as she is sure he can’t recall the incident.
“Im sure he doesn’t remember this at all, but I was so impressionable and I thought the world of him. He was on a pedestal, and I mean 16 years later it’s stuck with me. It really scarred me emotionally,” Moore said.
“This Is Us” airs on Star World Premiere HD in India on Saturday.
