Mandy Moore at the Academy Awards Mandy Moore explained her love-hate relationship with romantic comedies Sunday on the Academy Awards red carpet, ahead of performing the nominated song "I See the Light" with "Tangled" costar Zachary Levi and Alan Mencken on piano.

"As a girl, a quintessential girl, I love those films," said Moore, clad in a Monique Lhuillier gown she said was the first dress she'd tried on, "but as an actress ... I feel like I've definitely exhausted the romantic comedy genre for now."

Moore said her husband, Ryan Adams, would be "sitting out there with me after I perform."
