Pop star-turned-actress Mandy Moore is planning for her retirement even though she's only 19 - because she wants to start in her mid-30s.

The A WALK TO REMEMBER star, who is dating tennis ace Andy Roddick, feels she has already tasted the best of life and now she's ready to settle down - and disappear.

She says, "If you see me in a movie when I'm 37, seriously, pull me aside and ask me what's going on. I want to have a family.

"I want to have gone to college and live somewhere suburban, quiet and regular - I'll be in the Catskills (New York) singing karaoke in a bar.

"I did a film last year (02) with Macaulay Culkin and Jena Malone and we'd go karaoking a lot."
