EXCLUSIVE: Milo Ventimiglia and Mandy Moore respond to 'This Is Us' fans wanting them to date in real life


Milo Ventimiglia and Mandy Moore consider it an "amazing compliment" that fans of This Is Us would like to see them take their romance off-screen.

"I mean, hey, I'll take that!" Moore tells ET's Lauren Zima, flattered by the idea that viewers think she should date Ventimiglia. "That makes me feel good, because we're doing our jobs!"

The actors play husband and wife Rebecca and Jack Pearson, who are parents to triplets, on the beloved NBC series and admit to ET that their view on relationships has changed since joining the show.

"I love that Jack is sentimental," Ventimiglia shares. "I love that Jack thinks about the smaller moments as well as cares deeply about providing for his family and taking care of his family and being supportive."

The 39-year-old heartthrob jokes that he may just need to "rent an apartment" and "go back to the very beginning."

Proving he too is a hopeless romantic like his character, Ventimiglia adds that he's "big on revisiting first dates" when in a relationship. "If you have a great first date, why don't you go back and do that?" he explains. "Because when you think about it psychologically, it's bringing you back to that moment where you're still kind of wandering around Disneyland holding hands, being excited about what ride you're going to go on."

As for whether Ventimiglia has someone special to go to Disneyland with, he coyly responds, "I care about my job and my work and I love what I do.'

While Moore and Ventimiglia may not have real-life romance goals, they certainly have a special bond.
