Mandy Moore sexiest at 15?

At least she thinks so.

I'm rarely one to comment / blog / care about celebrity goings-on, but this in particular seems like it's one step away from a full-scale teenage repentance. Too many of our young girls get over-sexualized at younger and younger ages, and according to research published by our very own Deb Tolman:

...[More] girls view themselves as sex objects, the more they suffer from the most common mental health issues facing teen girls -- low self-esteem, depression and eating disorders. In addition, girls who thought of themselves as sex objects were more ashamed of their bodies and less likely to advocate for themselves in sexual situations.

This seems like exactly the problem that Mandy Moore is going / has gone through. I only wish she had said it a little more, uh, explicitly.
