"This Is Us" fans will have plenty of reasons to cry when the tearjerker returns for its second season in the fall, but leading lady Mandy Moore found a good reason of her own Thursday night.

An unfortunate slip landed the star right into the shower door — face first.

"Never had stitches or a black eye before," she added. "What a day!"
