Let’s take a walk down memory lane with this iconic movie.
Say it ain’t so! It seems like just yesterday the film came out, but here we are 15 years later celebrating its release. This Is Us’ Mandy Moore and Salem‘s Shane West starred in the Nicholas Sparks adaption, which revolved around two teenagers from different backgrounds falling in love despite one major tribulation-she has cancer.
Our hearts break just thinking about it! Check out these fun facts from the film:
Did you know Mandy Moore was only 17 years old when she filmed the movie?!
We loved the Camaro that Shane West got to drive in the film, and so did he! He loved it so much that he bought it after production wrapped.
Mandy took home a prop from the movie….and she didn’t even realize it! She posted, “Also, I think this was an actual prop from the movie. Not sure how I ended up with it but cool.” VERY COOL!
Shane’s band actually performed on the soundtrack for the movie! The song is called “What Does It All Mean?”
Out of all the Nicholas Sparks movies, this was the second one adapted off one of his novels!
Adam Shankman directed this movie. He is also the director of Hairspray, The Pacifier, Rock of Ages, Cheaper by the Dozen 2, and The Wedding Planner! Impressive!
Switchfoot performs a few songs on the soundtrack, and it’s all because Mandy was such a huge fan of the band! She even got to cover one of their songs in the movie! Lucky girl!
Mandy was a huge popstar at the age of 15! She even sang a few songs for the movie AND her co-star Shane appeared in one of her music videos!
BRB, we are going to go watch the movie now. And yes, we will be crying!
