In the words of Mandy Moore herself, it was a “walk of fame) to remember” for the actress this week.

Moore, 34, was assisted by none other than her ex on the screen “A Walk to Remember” beau and costar Shane West in commemoration of her Hollywood Walk of Fame Ceremony on Monday.

West, 40, went on stage at the ceremony to reminisce on when the two met on the set of the film — an adaptation of the Nicholas Sparks novel of the same name — in the beginning of the years 2000.

“We could not be more opposite when we met. I was busy with wearing ill-advised clothing and have bad hair choices and the wear of the eyeliner in my garage punk band or whatever, what that was. And you were killing it on the pop star scene,” the “Batman” actor said just after he gave Moore a photo of the two of them on the set. “I tried to listen to the Clash and the Ramones. You were not interested but you was very sweet about it. You stuck to your Fleetwood Mac, always Fleetwood Mac.”

“Not only was this movie a wonderful experience in all respects, [but] it also gave me the chance to fall for this wonderful woman,” he added.

“Mandy, you are an absolute gem. Your smile is ridiculous seriously, it is ridiculous; the light of a room if you are in. Your energy is irresistible and your heart is second to none. I always knew you were incredibly talented and I always knew you are going to do great things and amazing things, and you have… I could not be more proud of you. I couldn’t be more happy for you,” he finished.

In the 2002 film, Moore played Jamie Sullivan, the daughter of the preacher. She and West, who played the role of the rebellious Landon Carter, fall for each other, after they both take part in their high school play. As their relationship deepens, Landon learns of Jamie’s diagnosis of cancer that they first kept a secret from him.

The actress, who also, together with her colleague “This Is Us” members of the cast during the ceremony, later took to Instagram to thank West for his kind words.


“Stars have always kind of been our thing. Grateful to @theshanewest for his kind words on this very special day that I will never forget. It was a walk (of fame) to remember,” she wrote, to which West replied, “Awwww, this is great. And so proud.”

The ceremony came just after Moore told Us Weekly that she felt supported since the talk about the emotional abuse she claims she suffered from her ex-husband Ryan Adams.

“So many women reached out to me, following in the footsteps of … that the idea that psychological and emotional are often swept under the rug, or not treated, or not spoken about, or not in the same category of just general abuse,” she told the outlet.
