How do I think the industry’s changed? Films have changed a lot. I think women are finally able to get older and be sexy just like men. So I’m really enjoying that part – that’s my evolution.

Where I live, the majority of men are married to women their own age.

Like anybody, you have moments when you question yourself and you’re insecure.
Andie MacDowell

Here’s the thing with the business, is that when people like your work, and you make them money, you’re set. When the critics like you, and you make the studios money, doors opened.

I exercise every day. It’s what makes me happy.

In modeling, because you’re the center of attention, it builds up people’s egos. Sometimes people lose touch with reality. But that happens with acting, too.
Andie MacDowell

Sometimes I get intimidated by people, intellectuals, because I don’t have a great education. The only thing I feel helps me compete with all these people, people with degrees from Harvard, that you’re thrown in with and have to work with, is that I’m grounded.
Andie MacDowell

I hate auditions.
Andie MacDowell

Who’s to say I can’t find some great work when I’m 55 or 65?
Andie MacDowell

I don’t pass judgment on anybody, but personally, I prefer a more natural look. I think it’s helping my longevity in my career because I’m playing my age.

Diane Keaton, I’ve worked with her as a director, and I think she’s a really intelligent woman. I like the fact that the things that make her feel beautiful are more than just her face; it’s who she is, and I live by that same theory. There are things I want to achieve in my life intellectually that make me feel beautiful.
Andie MacDowell

I feel really good about the things I’ve accomplished in my life, and I don’t want to look younger.
Andie MacDowell

My girls have been a great support to me. I come to them when I need to make a decision; they love to watch me work.
Andie MacDowell

I’m always reading several books at the same time, depending on how deeply engrossed in it I am, if it’s fiction and if it captures me.
Andie MacDowell

I’m just human, and I have great relationships with the people that work for me.
Andie MacDowell

My high school experience was kind of like ‘Mean Girls.’ It was very much like a bad B movie. ‘This is where the jocks sit, and this is where the cheerleaders sit.’ And I never really fit in. I guess I was sort of a theatre geek, but the activity that I was most invested in was speech and debate.
Andie MacDowell

Everybody perceives me because of my career that I’m a movie star, or I’m this model, but I’m still the same person I was when I was a little girl.
Andie MacDowell

It kind of cracks me up when people say I’m hot because I just think that that’s a term that I don’t have to deal with anymore.
Andie MacDowell

I love being an advocate for women as we get older so that we can feel comfortable with ourselves.
Andie MacDowell

I’ve had some really big hits with ‘Groundhog Day’ and ‘Michael,’ ‘Multiplicity,’ ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral.’
Andie MacDowell

I want to play some really good, interesting, crazy characters. I want to take some chances. I want to take risks. I want to have fun and just keep working. That’s all I really care about.
Andie MacDowell

The truth is that humans have the potential to be horrific. And I think being conscious of that is important.
Andie MacDowell

Oh, all southern women say they’re sorry. You could do almost anything, bump into some one, don’t spread the jam right, you’re always sorry. I’ve had people tell me to stop saying it so much!
Andie MacDowell

I play games on-set at work. Sometimes I can’t remember people’s names, so I start throwing out clues. Like if I can’t think of George Clooney, I’ll say, ‘You know, drop-dead gorgeous, was on a big TV show… ‘ Until someone says his name, I can’t finish my story!
Andie MacDowell

I was a hard rocker when I was in high school.
Andie MacDowell

I’ve always been a very active person.
