Milo Ventimigilia And Mandy Moore Talk ‘This Is Us’ Chemistry – And Bell Bottoms!


Most episodes of This Is Us has viewers reaching for the nearest tissue, but more importantly the show manages to pull at the heartstrings while also evoking the bittersweet truths of the human condition. Milo Ventimiglia and Mandy Moore’s portrayal of the seemingly perfect couple Jack and Rebecca Pearson speaks directly to that reality, and in our video below the actors talk about their mutual chemistry and respect for each other.

“I met Mandy, and she greeted me with a smile,” said Ventimiglia. “What an amazing place to start – where you have someone on the other end of a conversation that is approaching you with warmth and excitement and happiness and determination.”

“There’s no accounting for chemistry,” added Moore. “It’s either there or it’s not and we just lucked out and we both enjoy each other’s company. And it’s not hard to be Jack and Rebecca.”
