Andie MacDowell, who turned 65 on April 21, is a stunning, open book because she has nothing to hide.
Before making her film debut in 1984’s Greystroke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes, the southern beauty worked as a model for high-end designers like Armani, Yves St. Laurent, and Calvin Klein. MacDowell played the part of Jane in the Oscar-nominated picture, but Glenn Close provided the voiceover.
The kind, gorgeous actor next impressed viewers in a supporting role on St. Elmo’s Fire, where he costarred with the inseparable Brat Pack.
The next year, she was nominated for her first Golden Globe for her performance in Steven Soderbergh’s directorial debut, Sex, Lies & Videotape (1989).
Her career took off after appearing in the hit comedy Four Weddings and a Funeral (1984) with Hugh Grant, but it may have all begun with her co-starring performance opposite Bill Murray in Groundhog Day (1983).
MacDowell established himself as a method actor with parts in films like Harrison’s Flowers and television shows like Cedar Cove for the whole family.
It’s little wonder that L’Oréal chose Andie MacDowell to star in advertisements for their hair care products, what with her gorgeous brown locks.
MacDowell, who was recently sighted in Cannes on a casual excursion, shows off her makeup-free face, framed by her now gray-silvery hair, which was wrapped in a low bun.
The Green Card star, in town for the 76th annual Cannes Film Festival, flaunted her natural beauty in a loose-fitting white striped minidress, brown and black platform shoes, and dark sunglasses.
MacDowell had previously said that she welcomed the arrival of her silver hair during Covid. She told Vogue, “My hair started growing at the very beginning of quarantine, and every time my kids would see me, they would tell me I looked badass with my grey hair.
” I put it in a bun so that my natural salt and pepper coloring—which describes me to a T—would be front and centre. In my mind, I’m on par with George Clooney, and that’s saying something. I’ve felt for a long that it was the right moment for me to make that change since it fits in with who I am and how I operate.
She also added, “I’m going to be more powerful if I embrace where I am right now,” despite the fact that her management had told her, “It’s not time” for her to go grey. Present tenseI’ll never have the opportunity to be salt and pepper if I procrastinate any longer. “Salt and pepper is what I’ve always wanted to be!”
McDowell proudly displayed the grey hair and natural style she was featured with on the cover of Style magazine in 2022. To summarise, she wrote, “As we age, we deserve dignity and pride.” She went on, “We need to feel magnificent! I’ve always maintained that attractiveness has no shelf life.
Her time as an actress is likewise not limited.
MacDowell co-starred with her 28-year-old daughter Margaret Qualley, whom she has with ex-husband Paul Qualley, in the 2021 Netflix drama series Maid. MacDowell and Qualley have two further children together, a boy named Justin and a daughter named Rainey. They were married in 1986 and divorced in 1999.

Margaret told USA Today that having her mother perform the role of her mother at work was the “biggest cheat in the world.
” That includes the automatic squinting of the eyes whenever Mom makes a comment. The little performer goes on to describe a scene from Maid in which her mother, who plays Paula, tells Alex “that she’s proud of her. One of the best things that has ever occurred to me, it seemed like my mother was proud of me.
MacDowell, who co-starred with Michael Keaton in 1996’s Multiplicity, is presently shooting Goodrich with Mila Kunis, Kevin Pollak, and Keaton.
Hallie Meyers-Shyer, the film’s writer and director, is a member of the growing population of “nepo babies”—the offspring of Hollywood A-listers—like Margaret.

Hallie is the child of film directors Nancy Meyers (Father of the Bride, It’s Complicated) and Charles Shyer (Baby Boom), and she has acted in many of her parents’ films.
Kaia Gerber, whose mother is Cindy Crawford, is a world-famous model who is dating Austin Butler, of the biopic Elvis (2022). Maya Hawke is the daughter of Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke, and she appears in the hit Netflix programme Stranger Things.
Dakota Johnson, the daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, is well-known for the Fifty Shades franchise, while Colin Hanks, the son of Tom Hanks, has made several film and television appearances.
Meanwhile, MacDowell expressed her desire to play with her daughter in future productions.
She reflected, “I treasured each and every second. Because I was concerned that this opportunity may never arise again, I was really motivated to perform an excellent job.
