When regular people pack up their houses, they find dust bunnies and ratty T-shirts. When Mandy Moore packs up her house, she finds artifacts from iconic (yes, iconic) movies she’s starred in throughout her career. Take, for example, the portrait from A Walk to Remember, which she posted on her Instagram account, mid-move, on Thursday.
” … I think this was an actual prop from the movie,” she wrote. “Not sure how I ended up with it but cool. Nice suit, @theshanewest! #awalktoremember.”
The photo features Moore and Shane West in character as Jamie and Landon, the ill-fated couple at the center of the 2002 Nicholas Sparks adaptation, in their wedding best. As fans of the tearjerker know, their marriage doesn’t last long: Jamie ends up dying of leukemia at summer’s end.
But luckily, the couple’s happier times are frozen in this photograph. Cue up Moore’s “Only Hope,” and admire the snapshot below. It’s what Jamie would have wanted.
