Her latest foray into film is Chasing Liberty, in which she plays the eager-to-be-liberated First Daughter of the President (played by Mark Harmon). Moore recently talked about her career plans and what it's like trading volleys with her offscreen boyfriend.
So, you and Andy have been dating awhile. Any engagement plans?
No, no engagement. (Laughs.) Do you see a ring on my finger? No engagement, but seriously dating, of course. He handles his world and I handle my world. It's nice.
How did you first meet? Didn't you go out and track him down?
I guess, kind of. But the funny part was that he told me that afterwards I was kind of his "celebrity crush," which was sweet. But yeah, my mom helped me a lot in terms of meeting him.
Well, I was shooting a film and my mom was going to watch him play tennis anyway, and I said jokingly, "You know, if you do end up getting to meet this guy, invite him back" – thinking that one, he'll have no clue who I am, and two, that he's not going to accept some weird invitation from some woman's mom. But he obliged. He came and we met and hit it off.
So, is this the most serious romance you've had?
Absolutely. I'm 19. It's a big deal and love is a big deal in anyone's life.
