Talk about some tough love. Mandy Moore’s parents were not afraid to be frank about their daughter’s character on the hit show “This is Us” after Tuesday’s latest episode.
The duo was none too thrilled when Rebecca (Moore) dealt a devastating blow to her on-screen hubby Jack (Milo Ventimiglia), declaring she wanted to go on a five-state tour with her band following his heartfelt vow renewal.
“You’re so mean,” Moore’s dad wrote to her in a text, “after Jack was so sweet and romantic...Your timing was awful.”
Mom also weighed in, texting her daughter, “Rebecca seems to have some has issues doesn't she? Hopefully she is made to look better in future episodes...right now Jack is the super hero."
But of course, it wasn’t all negative feedback for the starlet. Moore's parents were sure to tell her how much they actually loved the episode - complete with a heart emoji and lots of virtual hugs and kisses.
All in all, Moore seemed to find the criticism comical, commenting via Instagram that she appreciates her parents for “keep[ing] it real.”
It sure sounds like they do!
