This is everything. This Is Us star Milo Ventimiglia hit the red carpet of the 74th annual Golden Globe Awards on Sunday, January 8, and spilled a few things about smooching his on-screen wife Mandy Moore.
The actor, who’s previously starred on Heroes and Gilmore Girls, told E! News outside of the Beverly Hilton in L.A., that making out with Moore has been just as enjoyable for him. (The actress previously told Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live that Ventimiglia was her favorite on-screen kiss.)
“I respect and I appreciate that,” Ventimiglia told Ryan Seacrest. “And she is mine. I think it’s one of those things, like your current girlfriend: You have to say she’s the best you’ve ever had. I’m sure she’s had some steamy ones in the past, but I thank you, Mandy, for saying I’m the best.”
Moore, meanwhile, looked resplendent on Sunday night in a sizzling number by Naeem Khan featuring a floor-length cape. The Tangled star was nominated in the category of Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture made for Television – Drama, alongside co-star Chrissy Metz.
Ventimiglia was actually the one to break the nomination news to his on-screen wife last month. “Milo was actually the one who texted me and was like, ‘Congratulations, Mandy!’” she recalled to Entertainment Weekly. “I was like, ‘Wait, on what? The show got nominated?’ He’s like, ‘No, you did!’”
For the star, it was completely unexpected. “My jaw was definitely on the ground and I just started shaking. I’ve never been nominated for anything in my life,” she continued. “I feel like I’m on another planet right now. It’s so exciting, but I’m most excited about the show getting nominated.”
