Mandy Moore Shared the Best ‘Princess Diaries’ Throwback and It’s Making Us SO Nostalgic
Mandy Moore has proved herself the throwback queen of Instagram before, often looking back at some of the films that defined the aughts — not just for her, but for us, too. Her latest is a tribute to the 2001 film The Princess Diaries, and it has us feeling all kinds of nostalgic.
The This Is Us star posted a photo with some of her castmates and reminisced about their time on set together. “16 year old me with the inimitable @julieandrews and @heathermatarazzo on the set of #theprincessdiaries,” she wrote, before pointing out some of her long-abandoned teenage aesthetic choices. “#thosecurlstho.”
In ThePrincess Diaries, Moore portrayed the popular girl in school, Lana Thomas. She bullied Anne Hathaway’s character, Mia, which resulted in the memorable “Lana got cone’d!” scene when Mia smeared a chocolate ice cream cone all over Lana’s cheerleading outfit. Classic.
Matarazzo played Mia’s friend Lilly Moscovitz in the flick — but it’s not the only time the two starred opposite each other. The recently engaged Matarazzo and Moore were also in the 2004 teen comedy and religious satire Saved!, and the photos are just as era-appropriate.

“In honor of @mandymooremm’s #tbt photo, here’s a #tbt from when we shot #Saved and I was a blonde,” Matarazzo captioned two photos of the costars seemingly singing karaoke together. “You were meant to play Hillary Faye and I am so happy you did.” Us too!
