Pictured above are Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia from the hit NBC drama, This Is Us. While the network behemoth racked up plenty of Emmy nominations, one other thing it elicited from its viewers and fan base pretty frequently were a steady stream of tears. And fans might just have another reason to get their heart caught in their throat when they see Mandy Moore’s latest Instagram post. “Handle – 1. Mandy – 0,” reads the Tangled and This Is Us star’s caption of her selfie with a black eye.
No worries, though! While Moore is a bit banged up, she is going to be okay, as she was fortunately able to joke about the incident with her followers. After slipping in the shower and connecting her face with the shower door, Moore required quite a few stitches above her eye.
She asked her followers if they had any advice on how to get rid of a black eye as quickly as possible, likely because of the fact that, recently, the cast of This Is Us has been hard at work as they film season two and, chances are, the creators and writers of the show were not prepared for a storyline in which Moore’s character has a black eye and stitches.
She also might be trying to make sure that she looks her best once the night of the Emmys rolls around, which is going to be September 17, 2017. This Is Us is one of the most nominated programs contending for hardware this September as the show is nominated against the likes of Westworld, Stranger Things, and Better Call Saul for the award for Best Drama Series. It is one of the few representatives from network television that will be present at the Stephen Colbert-hosted ceremony this year.
