As one of the stars of “This Is Us,” Mandy Moore is really good at crying. And it’s one of those, she’s crying with us, not for us type of cries. To really test the limits of Mandy’s on-air crying skills, Ellen DeGeneres asked her to cry and play Speak Out at the same time.
Like, Ellen made her say some really weird, terrible things. Things we can’t write on here.
Mandy discussed what it’s like to have to cry so much on set. She said she has to really pump herself up to cry, but that Sterling K. Brown can “he is like, ‘which eye? Which eye do you want the tear to come from?’ A single cinematic tear.”
