It’s been 17 years since A Walk To Remember came out, but Jamie Sullivan and Landon Carter can still make our hearts skip a beat! Mandy Moore and Shane West recently reunited for a special occasion: Mandy receiving her very own Hollywood Walk of Fame star.
Shane had the sweetest words for her: “Not only was [A Walk To Remember] a wonderful experience in every way, but it also gave me the chance to fall for this fantastic woman. Mandy, you are an absolute gem. Your smile is ridiculous—seriously, it’s ridiculous, it lights up a room when you walk in. Your energy is irresistible and your heart is second to none.”

Mandy posted on Instagram, “Stars have always sort of been our thing. Thankful to [Shane] for his kind words on this very special day, one which I will never forget. It was a walk (of fame) to remember.”
In her acceptance speech, Mandy reminisced about filming the movie as an acting newbie. "I can't help but think of my poor, sweet co-star, Shane, explaining the basics of filmmaking to me like how to hit my mark and when and how to deliver my lines. He was exceedingly patient, kind, and so talented. On set, I was a nervous wreck, but I felt buoyed knowing that I had such a capable friend who had my back and lovingly let me ride his coattails into teenage romance infamy."
Mandy, who currently stars on the hit TV show This Is Us, continued, "I have such an appreciation and fondness and respect for my young self because she is what brought me here to this moment today, 20 years later, with her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. I did not know it was possible to dream dreams this big.”
