Mandy Moore is stunned Kate Winslet and Susan Sarandon were made to learn a dance routine she choreographed for their new movie romance + CIGARETTES - because it was so "ridiculous".

The 20-year-old singer and actress admits she performed a few very off-key steps for director JOHN TURTURRO - and now they're a permanent part of the movie.

She says, "John told MARY-LOUISE (PARKER) and me to choreograph a dance for the movie. So we decided we'd become Paula Abdul.

"I'm the worst dancer in the entire world, so we choreographed this silly, stupid thing - we're doing the chicken dance in one part.

"But Kate Winslet and Susan Sarandon and these dancers studied our tape and learned the routine from us. And it's in the movie! It's the most ludicrous, ridiculous thing you've ever seen - and we are getting choreography credit. That cracked us up."
