During a chat with Busy Phillips on her E! talk show, Busy Tonight, Leslie provided an update on Amanda’s road back to the spotlight.
"I met her when she was 16 years old,” the 47-year-old recalled. “ And you don’t know what you’re gonna get when you meet a young star of a show, it could be a nightmare. But from the get go, she was the sweetest, the funniest, the most hard working, and just a wonderful person.”
Leslie starred alongside Amanda on the WB network series What I Like About You. "That show was a really fun and good time in my life,” Leslie insisted, “And we had such a good time doing that.”
Amanda has had a tumultuous few years marked with mental health and addiction struggles. However, in June of last year she revealed she was now sober.
"She’s doing fantastic, she really is," the Popular star revealed. "She looks beautiful, and she’s very eager to get back into acting, which I think she’ll have no problem with. I think everyone wants to see her doing something."
"I think all of us have had tough times in our lives, and we haven’t had to do it in front of the glare of a camera," Leslie added. "I’m very, very proud of her, I really am. Amanda’s doing great."
