Mandy Moore and John Krasinski Interview – LICENSE TO WED

     July 2, 2007

When I found out I was going to be interviewing John Krasinski – also known as Jim, from “The Office” – I knew I would have to ask the most important question of the day: where and when is the city of Los Angeles going to get a Dunkin Donuts!

Awhile back I saw John on Conan O’Brien and almost the entire conversation was about Dunkin Donuts and how Los Angeles (and the state of California) doesn’t have one location. Since both John and Conan are from New England – where a Dunkin Donuts is on every corner – both of them were lamenting how L.A. needs one.

And John went as far to say that he’d discussed it with his “Office” cast mate Steve Carell and he’d even offered to go to the grand opening if one ever opened out here.

So when the press day arrived, I went prepared: Red Sox hat, front row seat, and my Dunkin Donuts question ready. Here is how it went…

I saw you on Conan address something important to the city of Los Angeles, the lack of Dunkin’ Donuts. So what are you willing to do to get it out here?

John: I’m willing to be CEO of that company to do that. We’ll expand. I want to buy jets that say ‘Dunkin’ Donuts’ and we’re just going to go all over the place. I’ve actually e-mailed the CEO.. No, I did and I even told him a perfect location, where they shut down Tower Records on both sides of the street. Come on! Have a little drive through and a sit-down, talk to people across the way. They did contact me and I have bags and bags and bags of coffee.

Mandy: So, that’s what it takes to get free Dunkin’ Donuts coffee? Okay.

John: Yeah, or you can say ‘I like Porsches’ and they send you a lot. Basically, what happened is I told them I would love to get together with a bunch of people and I talked to a lot of people about it and it’s looking like now, all for naught but I have been going around to people and saying ‘hey, would you open a Dunkin’ Donuts with me’? Ben Affleck and Conan O’Brien and Steve, all these people want to come and open a Dunkin’ Donuts in L.A. and in his e-mail he was like “that’s great!”. Okay, sounds good I guess. I guess it’s coming. I don’t know. I’m trying to do it. My entrepreneur skills for starting a huge company are not very good so far.

And while that’s the entire Dunkin Donuts discussion from the press conference, after it was over I was walking to my car and John was outside so we continued the conversation. He told me he was going to follow up with the CEO and see if any progress has been made. We ended up doing a little more back and forth on the subject and he seemed like he was going to do it.

So for all of you east coasters who live in California… let’s cross our fingers and hope that John can convince the CEO to do some expansion of the D & D brand.

And now…the reason we’re really here.

Opening this week is the new romantic comedy “License to Wed” and it stars Mandy Moore, John Krasinski and Robin Williams. Here’s the synopsis:

“License to Wed” follows newly engaged Ben Murphy (John Krasinski) and his fiancée, Sadie Jones (Mandy Moore), in their quest to live happily ever after. The problem is that Sadie’s family church, St. Augustine’s is run by Reverend Frank (Robin Williams), who won’t bless Ben and Sadie’s union until they pass his patented, “foolproof” marriage-prep course. Consisting of outrageous classes, outlandish homework assignments and some outright invasion of privacy, Reverend Frank’s rigorous curriculum puts Ben and Sadie’s relationship to the test. Forget happily ever after—do they even have what it takes to make it to the altar?

Posted below is the rest of the press conference with Mandy and John and they talk about everything – from working with Robin to whether or not they hooked up on the set. Again, with a press conference you get a wide variety of questions and some are always a bit stupid.

As always, if you’d like to listen to the interview you can click here to download it. One last thing… sorry for the lack of pictures in these interview articles, it’s due to my being in a bad internet zone for a few days…

“License to Wed” opens on July 4th.

John: Good Morning! It is morning, right? [looking at the various recorders] Hey, that cell phone is recording. You obviously fought somebody for that microphone. There’s a body in the back.

This movie has you two engaged and ready to get married. You’re both single in real life. Have you ever been engaged and what do you think of the institution of marriage?

Mandy: We’re just jumping right in!

John: I usually save these answers for my Barbara Walters special but she didn’t call so I’ve never been engaged, despite popular belief. I have people printing that I have. Never been engaged. As far as what I think of marriage, I think it’s great. I think I’d like to be married some day but I’ll start with love. Why don’t we try falling in love first and then I’ll see what happens after that. I think the one thing about this movie that was really interesting was finding out how much is really involved in that. I know I’m guilty of and I think a lot of people are guilty of sort of getting starry-eyed with love and sort of looking over the bad things and keep going and you don’t really prepare for how much work marriage really is. When I look at my parents I’m like ‘this is easy. Staying together for 35 years? How hard is that?’ They’re like ‘very hard. You should know the ins and outs’. So it was nice to see a little bit of background. Mandy?

Mandy: Wow, that was such a thorough answer. I’ve never been engaged. I definitely believe in the institution of marriage but I’m twenty-three and it’s not something that is in the forefront of my mind right now.

You started your career as a singer, Mandy and you John as a writer and you are finding success as actors. How do you feel about acting vs. what you originally intended?

Mandy: For me, I feel like they go hand-in-hand. I feel lucky to do a little bit of both and that people have been accepting of me in both roles. I don’t ever feel overwhelmed by it. I feel like anybody else who has a lot on their plate. It’s about prioritizing. I feel like they are such different creative entities and being on stage and getting to perform in front of an audience and that rush of adrenalin and that connection with an audience is very, very different from making a film and the teamwork aspect of everything. So, I just feel lucky and fulfilled differently by doing a little bit of both.

John: I think it’s about doing things that you are excited about. I don’t think I ever planned on being an actor and I definitely didn’t plan on being a writer either. I planned on being an English teacher and I don’t know where that is but I think that it’s really fun to have an outlet. For me, it’s really just an outlet, writing and putting together this movie was a passion project for sure but really nothing more than that because I’m not tying to be the triple threat guy. I’m still working on this one threat; acting but it’s easy to be intimidated by somebody who does music, to me, because working with Mandy and having her developing the album as we went was incredible to watch. I was very envious because doing that and doing music that is very different from what you [Mandy] did before, I wish I could do something as cool as that. So, we’ll see if it happens in the movies but I doubt it.

You were working on your album?

Mandy: I was writing, yeah. I was writing definitely while we were doing it.

John: I was playing guitar.

Mandy: We were collaborating.

John: I was on the keys sometimes but the trailer doesn’t fit a whole piano.

What would you say is the secret to a good relationship?

John: I’d say the key to a good relationship is communication which I think, at the end of the day, our characters didn’t have for a really long time in the movie, bringing it full circle. I always think about the simplest things in a relationship that have frustrated me. It always sort of comes down to communication. Even something as simple as probably the worst thing that could happen is ‘where do you want to go to dinner?’ ‘I dunno. Where do you want to go to dinner’? ‘I dunno’. That might be the worst thing in the world. So being honest… [to reporters] Not the worst thing in the world. Don’t write that down.

Mandy: They’re typing.

John: Worst thing in the world? John is completely out of it. Good luck, ladies. He’s a freak!

Mandy: Yeah. I think communication is key too. You’re answering all the questions. Thank you. I’ll just sit back here.

Mandy is there anything else that’s important?

Mandy: Hygiene? I don’t know. Communication is key.

John: You just became the freak.

Mandy: I took over that role?

John: Yeah.

Is there anything of yourselves you found in these roles?

Mandy: I’m slightly controlling. I’m an Aires and I like things to have an order and I get slightly disturbed and I get slightly distressed and flustered if things go awry but I think Sadie kind of skipped a couple of steps in terms of calling off the marriage. I feel there were a couple of things that could have been worked out before that.

John: A slight negotiation would have been nice.

Mandy: Exactly, before calling it quits but I have related to the sort of ambitious, controlling streak she had in her.

John: What did I relate to in my character? I don’t know. I think he’s a pretty laid back guy and I definitely would have had the idea to like ‘go to the Caribbean and get married’ and so I would have been taken aback probably if somebody had said ‘I want to get married here with this sort of regimented thing’. It wouldn’t have derailed me but it would have been definitely a surprise. I think I’m spontaneous and not as controlling. Sort of willing for things to go whatever way they go so we were perfect for each other.

How was working with Robin Williams in this and did either of you have a Robin moment?

Mandy: Robin he’s pretty dynamic. I had a lot of fun but I also felt like there was no onus on me to be funny. I think I enjoyed witnessing Robin and John play off each other really well, even just joking around in between takes and stuff. I just got to stand back with the crew and be entertained and watch the show in front of me. I think I found it difficult though to keep a straight face when we were actually working and I wasn’t supposed to be laughing. I was always the first one to break. I’ll admit it. I couldn’t keep a straight face.

John: Really? I don’t know if that’s true.

Mandy: I did. I did.

John: Great. Well, I’ll let you have that.

Mandy: I was unprofessional.

John: Perfect. Yeah, working with Robin Williams, what can you say? He’s the best of the best. What I really liked watching was, not only is he incredible funny, probably the funniest person on Earth which is a tough award to give out, but to see what it really takes to be a huge star is way beyond a good partner being extremely funny. It goes into being an incredibly classy person and bringing such an enthusiasm to the set where it makes everyone around you do the best they can because, if he’s there committing and not complaining, there’s nothing you can say about it. You have to do as good work. So that was really fun to see and I definitely learned a lot from him.

Mandy can you compare and contrast doing music and acting? To you flex the same muscles?

Mandy: I think you’re flexing the same muscles doing the music and the film stuff. You are trying to convey your emotions in lyrics across to an audience if you’ve written a song a few years ago and it doesn’t really hit you the same anymore. There’s a little acting in that and obviously, when you’re relaxing or trying to get in character, sometimes you listen to music. They do go hand-in-hand.

When you were a little girl, did you have a fantasy about your wedding?

Mandy: I wanted a fake wedding in Jamaica. No! In terms of the fantasy wedding thing, I can kind of cross off the island beach thing. Maybe at sunset or something but we were shooting during the heat of the day and it was unbelievably hot and humid and sticky and yuk, no fun. As a little girl I thought I’d like to get married on the beach. But I’m not the quintessential girl who had these sort of fantasies about that stuff.

John, didn’t you work with Conan O’Brien?

John: Yeah. I was his intern. That, I think, I can attribute as one of the most surreal experiences but there’s been a lot of them but that was one of the most surreal things, being his intern. In 1999 when I was in college, pretty much watching his show was my life. That was the best part of my day and then to go back as a guest, I think I blacked out for like 35 seconds. I don’t remember much from the curtain to the seat but he reassured me that everything would be fine and so to now have him say he’s a fan of my show, it just doesn’t make any sense. I don’t think I’ll ever compute that.

How do you compare Robin’s style to his or Carell’s or yours?

John: I’m equally as funny. I’m as talented as Conan O’Brien… no. I don’t know how you match, they’re just so dynamic and specific. To me, with Robin and Conan and Steve too, their willingness to go all the way with a joke and commit and find the humor in everything and keep it real. I mean that is what’s really fun about all those guys. Even Conan with how ridiculous he is, he’s still that guy that you knew in high school. His realness is what makes him so funny because you can totally relate to him.

Don’t be modest. You keep up with them. Watching you with Robin….

John: I taught him improv. We had improve classes and I was like ‘no!’. It was fun. There was one moment in re-shoots where I get hit by a baseball in the face and it was funny because I could see him looking at me like ‘alright, let’s see what he does with this’. Because I think people have been hit in the face before. And I did a couple of takes and he laughed every time and you can hear on film, him laughing. I’m pretty sure they dubbed that out but he said later, ‘wow, that’s one of the funniest things I’ve seen on film’ then he walked away and I had a nosebleed and passed out for five days because that was like the best compliment I’ve ever gotten. I’m like ‘what? You think I’m funny?’ It was really exciting. It was fun to work with him. But, I’m in no way as funny as they are.

Do you still keep in touch with Conan?

John: Yeah.. You’re wearing a Red Sox hat. Thank God. Now I feel like I’m home.

I saw you on Conan address something important to the city of Los Angeles, the lack of Dunkin’ Donuts. So what are you willing to do to get it out here?

John: I’m willing to be CEO of that company to do that. We’ll expand. I want to buy jets that say ‘Dunkin’ Donuts’ and we’re just going to go all over the place. I’ve actually e-mailed the CEO.. No, I did and I even told him a perfect location, where they shut down Tower Records on both sides of the street. Come on! Have a little drive through and a sit-down, talk to people across the way. They did contact me and I have bags and bags and bags of coffee.

Mandy: So, that’s what it takes to get free Dunkin’ Donuts coffee? Okay.

John: Yeah, or you can say ‘I like Porsches’ and they send you a lot. Basically, what happened is I told them I would love to get together with a bunch of people and I talked to a lot of people about it and it’s looking like now, all for naught but I have been going around to people and saying ‘hey, would you open a Dunkin’ Donuts with me’? Ben Affleck and Conan O’Brien and Steve, all these people want to come and open a Dunkin’ Donuts in L.A. and in his e-mail he was like “that’s great!”. Okay, sounds good I guess. I guess it’s coming. I don’t know. I’m trying to do it. My entrepreneur skills for starting a huge company are not very good so far.

What was working with the two robo-babies in this film like? They were pretty creepy. Were they heavy?

Mandy: They were like fifteen pounds each, right?

John: I think more than that. I was carrying them the whole time. They were really heavy but they smelled so bad!

Mandy: Really bad!

John: Ooooh, God.

Mandy: I can’t even begin to describe it.

John: It felt like a locker room made of rubber. It was really gross.

Mandy: Sweaty rubber, yuk, gross.

John: It definitely went against that old saying ‘all babies are cute’. I mean James Cagney as a baby is not my ideal thing. It was fun to work with because they were so hideous and really hard to hold and all that so it really made those scenes a lot easier to do, especially smashing it against the glass. I was happy to do that.

Speaking of babies, how many kids do each of you want to have?

John: Seventeen.

Mandy: I haven’t thought about that too much.

John: Two? Isn’t that like an answer? One in each hand.

Mandy, you said four in the movie.

Mandy: No, not four.

John: Two or seventeen. She’s got a choice.

You two seem to get along well. Anything happen between you on set?

Mandy: No.

John: Oh my God, are you having a baby? [laughter] If you want to announce it, announce it here.

Robin said here that he wanted to work with you.

John: He just did. We did a movie together.

Ken Kwapis compared you to Jimmy Stewart or a young Gary Cooper. How do you stay grounded with all the hype?

John: I hadn’t heard the Gary Cooper thing so I’m not grounded now. I feel pretty good. That’s incredibly nice. When I met Robin at the read-through, I remember when he came in, I was so nervous meeting him for the first time is incredible because I did actually write him a letter when I was a kid, and told him he was my favorite actor. The first time I ever cried in a movie was in “Dead Poet’s Society” and I had my fingers like this, like windshield wipers and I was like ‘what is going on’? And he wrote back and he was “it” for me. So getting to meet him and hearing that he liked my work is totally unbelievable. That’s just something that I can’t compute. You can’t take a compliment like that. It doesn’t make any sense. As far as Ken Kwapis saying all those things, I think he just really wanted me in the movie so he probably told Warner Brothers, ‘don’t worry, Jimmy Stewart? Gary Cooper? Who else do you like?’ If they’d said they were huge Chris Farley fans, he’s like ‘he can do that too. He’s a huge physical comedian’. But no, that’s really nice to hear. As for staying grounded, I’ve got a great family and honestly I attribute a lot of it to that. Really, what makes this fun, because it’s always surreal and exciting, but what makes it really fun is having special people to share it with and my family’s the best so to call and say ‘I’m in a movie with Robin Williams’ and they’re like ‘that’s ridiculous’. And I’m like ‘good, as long as you think that too’ because as soon as you say ‘I deserve this’, it’s over.

Aren’t they on the East Coast?

John: They are on the East Coast, another reason why I stay grounded. When you’re from the East Coast, they tend to keep you grounded. Boston is one of those places as I’m sure you know.

Can you talk about upcoming projects? In particular I’m interested in ‘Brief Interviews with Hideous Men’. Are you a huge David Foster Wallace fan?

John: I am in that everything he writes is pretty much the best stuff I’ve read so that makes me a fan I guess. I don’t understand all of it. I try. I got through [can’t make this out] with three bottles of Advil. I mean I was extremely lucky to get this project. It was one of those things that I worked on in college. A friend of mine asked me to do a stage reading of that book and I was just completely blown away because, at that point, I was like ‘acting’s having fun with your friends and making people laugh’. Not the case then you do something that makes you actually feel important and that’s a big moment. It’s a big thing to feel like you’re doing something that’s actually effecting people so I fell in love with the book and always wanted to do something with and fought to get the rights which was pretty fun and an incredible experience in itself and then writing and directing just

Sort of fell into my lap. We were looking to collaborate with someone on both those fronts and it ended up just being me so, at this point, it’s the epitome of a passion project and I just hope people like it and you being a fan terrifies me because I’m sure you know the book so well. I hope I did a good enough job. I’ll finish editing this summer so [can’t make it out] first they tell me and then, I don’t know, some festivals.


John: Sure, that would be great. Are you saying that I’m in? Oh my God! That’s huge.

Are you still doing ‘Leatherheads’?

John: We just finished like three weeks ago.

Working with George Clooney?

John: That was okay. One of these days I’ll work with a good director.. No, it was incredible. You can make jokes but he’s everything that anyone’s ever said about him. To be that big of a star and that grounded and that classy, I’m mean he was a true mentor for me and, as a director, he’s incredible. He knows exactly what he wants and so he knows that you’re done a good job before you do so after three takes, he’s like ‘we got it’ and I’m still thinking ‘I’m just getting used to this. I shouldn’t have done it in a Russian accent’. No he’s great. He’s a good guy.

Mandy what’s in your future?

Mandy: I have a record coming out on Tuesday.

John: In the business we say it’s ‘dropping’ on Tuesday.

You wrote more of the songs on this than you usually do?

Mandy: Yeah, I co-wrote it.

Is there a theme?

Mandy: It’s just sort of what my life has been for the last two, two and a half years. I was adamant about writing and being a part of the creative process and I kind of stood my ground and left two record labels to make this record exactly what I wanted it to be and working with the caliber of people that I got to. I’m a huge singer/songwriter fan and a fan of independent music and I got to collaborate with a lot of my favorite artists and a fantastic producer and so it’s something personally that is really exciting for me and that I feel invested in and I’m excited that people can finally hear it. It’s called ‘Wild Hope’.

John: And my blog had the exclusive. I got to break it.

Any embarrassing moments during shooting?

John: It wasn’t my first kiss but when you have to kiss someone… I think doing a movie about getting married, for me I was extremely nervous because, for me, you need a partner that’s really willing to go there and be silly. It was also fun because we were really getting to know each other as our characters. I think that’s the real premise of the movie. You never really know someone until things go badly for you. So it was fun to get to know Mandy in all these tests and I can say that working with someone that has so much more experience than you do and yet is still extremely invigorated and youthful and fun. I just took her lead as far as what I needed to do on set and just tried to make it okay. The kiss I tried to not make look terrible.

Mandy: I think when you get along with someone, it’s just natural and it comes across on screen and I think we had good chemistry. We appreciate each other and respect each other.

John: It would have been bad to hate each other. Put it that way. That would have been upsetting.

What was your favorite scene to shoot?

John: I don’t know about my favorite scene but the first scene that we shot was us breaking up, her leaving the church which I thought was pretty insane. From an acting perspective and the movie perspective, that was really exciting to shoot this scene where all this stuff happens.

Mandy: Before you’ve established anything.

John: Yeah. ‘Hi, Mandy. I’m John and you’re about to break up with me’. That was really exciting and a fun way to go about it.

Mandy: I liked all the stuff we shot in Jamaica. It was fun to travel.

John: You’re spoiled [she laughs].

Mandy: It was fun. The experience making this movie was such a blast, like a little family, a summer camp experience. Being able to go away was an exciting thing. “The Office” has a really big following and I wanted to know more on the relationship between Pam and Jim. You have such a big following on the internet. How do you feel about that?

John: It’s incredible. It’s slightly overwhelming because you don’t think that anything you do….having anybody enjoy what you do is such a treat and so I know I’ve said this a hundred times but we owe it all to our writers. We have the best writers in the business. I love to have the people watching just because it’s fun to have people watching but our fans are so dedicated, so smart and so cool for the most part. We don’t have these fans that overwhelm you if they see you on the street. They’re like ‘love the show’, or ‘what an idiot. You should have said something to her last week’.

I’m like ‘I know’. Keeping it real in the key and I don’t know how they’ve done that week after week. I think the key is that everybody can sort of empathize with it. It’s that long lost love and we can all empathize. My favorite scene on the show is on the booze cruise when I finally get to talk to her and tell her and I react exactly how I would react by saying nothing. I would have nothing to say in that situation so like these strings, violins coming in and having some amazing speech. It didn’t happen for me.

Have you gotten any reaction on the finale?

John: Yeah. They’ve all been great which is really awesome. We were really nervous about it because last year was a pretty huge moment, really fun to shoot then this year was very circumstantial. So, if you were a fan of the show, I think this finale would make more sense to you and you would love it more because you know that that moment’s been coming for a while so the sort of anti-ending was really brave to do, for the writers, not for us. It was pretty easy to just get the script and do it. But, yeah it was really nice. We’re extremely lucky.

Did you do any acting when you were in school at all?

John: The first acting thing I ever did was my senior year I decided not to play a sport in the Spring and, in that Spring B.J. Novak who went to school with me, asked if I’d be in this show that was a parody of all the teachers in the school, ‘sure!’ That was the first acting thing I did. He offered me the lead which I’m pretty sure he was insane for doing. We knew each other but not well enough for him to cast me in anything. It was like ‘I just think you’re right for this role’. I’m like ‘what does that mean?’ So that was my introduction to acting other than doing Daddy Warbucks in sixth grade which was smashing.

Mandy, what keeps you grounded because we hear about young celebrities getting in trouble all the time?

Mandy: I think I have a similar answer to John. It’s a testament to my family; the way that I was raised. I don’t like to pat myself on the back or anything but I feel like innately, it’s just who I am. I don’t like to subscribe to the crazy party lifestyle. It’s just not who I am. I’m a little boring and lazy. I take my jobs seriously but at the end of the day, I just want to go home and live a simple, quiet life I guess.

Is it hard to do that?

Mandy: No. It’s just my choice. It’s what I’m choosing to do.

Don’t you think that being a teen idol early on that managed not to do that party thing is remarkable?

Mandy: No, not really. It’s not like I’m an anomaly. I feel just like any other regular person who’s had a fantastic opportunity to do all of this.

John: I think we all feel like you’re an anomaly. I was shocked.

Mandy: It’s the most asked question right now and I’m like ‘why do I feel weird about just living my life in a very normal way?’

John: Think about how I feel being a young girl in Hollywood.

Who do you go to for romantic advice?

Mandy: I would probably go to my best girlfriend, sure.

John: I go right to ‘The View’. They get it right.

Do you listen to your friends or give them advice?

Mandy: Yeah, absolutely. It’s a reciprocal relationship, sure.

What were your expectations of each other?

John: I do think that she’s an anomaly. I was so impressed at the way she carried herself. Not in a bad way but I think I was expecting something totally different. I don’t know what I was expecting but I think when you read on paper what the stats are that she’s been doing this for so long and been successful for so long and loved by everybody for so long, you sort of expect that to go to someone’s head. I know it will mine as soon as I get reviews like that. But, the fact that she was so grounded and so intelligent. you wouldn’t know that she’s missed anything throughout her life and I’m sure she’s missed so many big moments and sacrificed for her career and you wouldn’t know it for a moment. She was just extremely fun to have around and I loved it. Great.

Mandy, do you feel that you’ve sacrificed things for your career?

Mandy: Yeah, sure. I didn’t have the normal, average high school experience and the social aspect of high school or going to college but I don’t feel bad because of it. I may have missed out on stuff but it doesn’t really bother me. I just know the life that I’ve led and I kind of believe, everything for a reason and this is just the path I’m supposed to take.

John: We’re going to Spring weekend in Jamaica. Let’s do it.

Mandy: Spring break.

John: Catch you up.

John, have you had a chance to check in with Jenna after her accident?

John: I have, yeah. I was shooting the movie when it happened so I was unfortunately busy, but we talked a little bit. Then, when I got to New York as soon as we wrapped, I went to visit her at the hotel. It’s kind of crazy how well she’s doing for what happened. When I was sitting talking to her I forgot that she broke her back. You hear those words and you’re like ‘oh, man. She won’t walk for years’ and here she is up and walking around with a huge smile on her face. I definitely wouldn’t take it a well.

What are your feelings about the institution of marriage?

Mandy: Wow, big question for right at the end. Nothing fluffy? I like the fluffy questions. I think I’m still sort of figuring out what my definition of marriage really is. I’m 23 years old and it’s not something that is at the forefront of my life right now.

John: I’m 27. I think this is a time when I’m still figuring out how to do all this myself so I’d say that what we were getting to about communication and all that, especially with all these debates on who can get married and why. It’s just so funny to be because, at the end of the day, marriage shouldn’t be the next logical step. It shouldn’t be something that everybody has to do. It should be something that’s really romantic and just comes out of being happy with someone. I feel like anybody can do that. As the next generation I’d say it would be great if we could all find someone that actually made us happy and if marriage is the next step, that’s fine.

Are you going on tour, Mandy?

Mandy: Yes. I’m going on tour at the end of this summer.
