Mandy Moore said that she felt supported since they spoke last month about the emotional abuse she’d suffered from her ex-husband Ryan Adams.
“For Us, this is a” star told Us Weekly on Sunday that they had no idea so many other women have had similar experiences.

The 34-year-old singer and actress continued, saying she has encouraged in the process.
“I’ve just been really encouraged by the support which, I think, myself and the other women, who have spoken in this particular situation have received. It is truly heartwarming. And encouraging to know that other women can look to as an example. Like, ‘You’re not alone. You are seen. You are heard. You are recognised. It really is. And I’m so sorry,'” she added.
Adams, 44, was the subject of a New York Times, in which seven men, including Moore, accused him of “manipulative behavior.”

On the “WTF With Marc Maron” podcast on Feb. 18, Moore opened up about her relationship with Adams and the way they will be able to see it in a different light now that everything has been made public.
“I lived my life for him,” she said. “I had no sense of self-worth. I was not perceptible. I was so small in my own world.”
Moore met Adams in 2007, when she was 23 years old. The two were married after only one year of dating. Moore filed for divorce from Adams in 2015.
After The Times was published, Moore also spoke on social media.
“The speaking your truth can be painful and trigger, but it is always worth it,” Moore subtitle a serious-looking photo on Instagram. “My heart is with all women who are victims of a kind of trauma or abuse. You’ll be seen and heard. #sisterhoodforever.”
