Not every breakup has a bitter end.
Case in point: Mandy Moore and Wilmer Valderrama, who dated from 2000 to 2002. After hanging out at Universal Studios' Halloween Horror Nights last fall, the exes had a surprise run-in Wednesday on the Paramount Studios lot in L.A. Moore, 32, and Valderrama, 36, made sure to document their happy reunion on Instagram (and plug each other's TV shows, of course).
Moore, who stars in the new NBC series This Is Us, premiering Sept. 20, shared a photo and wrote, "Sometimes you get to work on the same lot as your friends and you can run over, catch up and watch them continue to be a bad-ass (in real life and on TV). Love this guy. Friends for over 16 years. Congrats on @ncis.cbs, @wilmervalderrama! Can't wait to watch you this Fall!!"
Moments later, Valderrama—who joins the cast of CBS' NCIS starting Sept. 20—shared another shot with Moore. "A Paramount Studios moment.. When one of the most special people just so happens to be shooting her show @nbcthisisus at the same lot you're shooting @ncis_cbs.. Love you Mandela!" he wrote. Valderrama later edited his Instagram caption, writing, "Ps. Word in the street is she ROCKS the screen on her show!... Can't wait for the world to see the talent you are. Like you said, 16 years and another 16 to go.. And then another 16 after that.. Plus maybe 16 more to add to those last 16.. Ummm let's throw another 16?... After all those?"
In one of Moore's Snapchat videos, Valderrama said, "I'm doing undercover work, as you can see, because I'm an undercover agent, and I find someone looking really suspicious and guilty." Moore replied, "I love a job that lets you run into one of your favorite people on the same lot."
"It's kind of crazy and magical," Valderrama said in agreement.
