Mandy Moore is Tired of Playing the Good Girl

Mandy Moore is tired of being the girl next door and refuses to take on any more "wallflower" roles.

She tells Marie Claire magazine, "That won't cut it anymore. I don't want to be a wallflower. I don't want to be shy. Give me the opportunity to get in the room and have a conversation as to why I know I can do this.

"It's OK that you see me as this person, but I'm an actress, and I'll work my a** off to play the part."

But that doesn't mean Moore will take on just any role: "It has to be right. I've had the opportunity to play the drug dealer who gets gang-raped, and I'm like, for what reason? Doing it just to do it? To just show people that I can be sexy or dark?

"I don't want to do something just to make that point. It needs to happen organically and I'm really confident it will. I'm a pretty patient person, and I'll wait until we find the right stuff."

Sounds like she's being a little too picky. She hasn't worked since 2007 and her clothing line recently went kaput, so maybe she should take what she can get!
