Andi MacDowell 4

I think there is sexy. And then there’s tacky sexy. When you’re young, you can get away with tacky sexy. I mean, it’s not even tacky when you’re young. But when you get older, it’s just tacky.
Andie MacDowell

I think every time in your life is valuable, and you need to exist in that moment. Because if you don’t – you lose it.
Andie MacDowell

I like what L’Oreal stands for, which is women of worth.
Andie MacDowell

I remember when Meryl Streep did an ad for American Express, the press harassed her.
Andie MacDowell

When my mother had four girls, and she could tell her marriage was falling apart, she went back to college and got her degree in music and education.
Andie MacDowell

I’m not a huge TV person. I don’t like having the noise when I’m doing other things unless I’m really lonely, and then I turn the TV on. But I do like to sit down and watch TV in the evenings.
Andie MacDowell

I wish there was a news channel that really told you what was going on in the world, not just sensationalized news.
Andie MacDowell

There’s not a lot of light on television.
Andie MacDowell

I need some downtime before I go to sleep.
Andie MacDowell

Divorce is horrible. I wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy. I don’t think it’s anything that’s ever completely resolved.
Andie MacDowell

Having the option to be able to have a career and feel good about yourself as an individual and still be a great mother is definitely a possibility.
Andie MacDowell

My kids learned to be independent.
Andie MacDowell

One of the reasons I didn’t really want to do TV earlier in my career was because it is so life-consuming, and I wanted to spend time with my kids and be a mother.
Andie MacDowell

I try really hard not to be attached to success.
Andie MacDowell

I never ‘shunned’ L.A., like people say. And I do think you can raise children well there, but it’s definitely harder.
Andie MacDowell

North Carolina has been so great because nobody asks me about work.
Andie MacDowell

My children haven’t even seen most of my movies.
Andie MacDowell

When the children were little, I’d fly into L.A. for a specific work project, but then I’d leave again, and when I was home, I wouldn’t even read a script.
Andie MacDowell

I’m the kind of person that just goes in and does my job.
Andie MacDowell

Some women are naturally thin. But there needs to be an appreciation for a variety of types of women because we don’t all come in one package. We’re not pre-destined to all be a size six. It’s very hard for a large group of women to maintain a thinness which is, after all, only natural to a few people.
Andie MacDowell

I’ve had a great experience in the fashion business.
Andie MacDowell

I’ve heard that George Clooney did something like nine pilots before ‘ER’ was picked up, way back when he was doing TV. It’s just the way the business works. There are a lot of pilots that we’ve never seen. It’s protocol.
Andie MacDowell

Don’t worry about the room being messy! Everything can’t be perfect – you have to let some things go, and it’s better to actually sit down on the floor with your child than spend time worrying about having a perfect house.
Andie MacDowell

I tried to do things independently with each child.
Andie MacDowell

There are lots of great actresses who are great because they’ll do anything.
Andie MacDowell

I remember what I was like as a teenager, with an enormous amount of energy and hormones. You have to be able to release it, and dancing is really an innocent way.
