Mandy Moore thought she had found her fairytale when she married Ryan Adams back in 2009 but sometimes love just doesn't last forever. The couple's divorce was finalized a little over two months ago and the actress is just now speaking out about her experience and how her life has changed since the split.

She said, "It's tough. Life is not easy. I think it's been great to be able to take all of the chapters in my life and be able to pour it into a job like this because it all helps. It's all fuel."

She continued, "I think everything happens for a reason. I think I spent a good portion of the last years of my life really pouring all of my energy into my life and relationship, and now that that's sort of not part of my life any more. It's just not a coincidence to me that things sort of opened back up, and I'm able to focus back on myself again."

Wow! It seems like The Princess Diaries alum has a really positive outlook on the whole thing. Heartbreak and splitting up is never easy but Mandy has chosen to not dwell on the past and look to her future.

While she's always been a very private person especially when it comes to her relationships, it's pretty amazing that she opened up even this much. We can't wait to see what she has in store for her fans, who have followed her since day one, next!
