Mandy Moore stars as the matriarch of a nontraditional family on the hit NBC series “This is Us” and revealed her own family isn’t cookie cutter either.
“I’ve never really talked about this, but my parents are divorced,” Moore, 32, said in an interview with Byrdie. “My mother left my father for a woman. And both of my two brothers are gay.”
“My parents loved each other; they did an incredible job raising all of us,” Moore continued. Now the actress and singer says that her family is “exactly where they should be. Everyone’s so much happier, richer, and more fulfilled, being their authentic selves.”
Moore has been open about her older brother’s sexuality before telling The Advocate in 2009 that she was shocked by Proposition 8 in California, “My older brother and his boyfriend got married right before the election just in case things ended up going the way that they did, and I think my family was all the more disappointed that things went the way that they did with the decision.”
