The weird­est thing is that it was es­cap­ing the pain I felt from los­ing a per­son (Mandy Moore) I had loved dearly RYAN ADAMS, SINGER

Singer-song­writer Ryan Adams (right) said that he got to know him­self bet­ter due to his re­la­tion­ship with Mandy Moore (left). The 42-year-old mu­si­cian mar­ried the singer-ac­tor in 2009 after dat­ing her for a year. “The weird­est thing is that it was es­cap­ing the pain I felt from los­ing a per­son I had loved dearly. And here was this very nice, kind per­son who lived on this other coast where the sun was shin­ing and things were dif­fer­ent. In a way, it was like an elixir. I al­most felt like all that dif­fer­ence helped me get out of my­self and shed who I thought I was, so I could get down into the depths of re­ally know­ing my­self,” Ryan told Van­ity Fair magazine. Moore filed for di­vorce in Jan­uary 2015, and it later emerged they had split al­most six months be­fore that, but Ryan said he wants to keep rea­sons for the end of their mar­riage to him­self. “There’s noth­ing for me to say about any­thing I went through out­side of my art that would be help­ful in a way I would be com­fort­able with. For me, the best thing you can do as a man in lov­ing some­one is to do your best, go on that walk, and at the end of that walk be as much of a gen­tle­man as you were in the be­gin­ning.”
