As an actor, you don’t know what is going to come next.

Because of technology today, we expect kids to stay in touch with us too much. I think that’s unnatural. We really do have to give kids their freedom and allow them to go off and become adults.

My goal is to do cartwheels for the rest of my life.

I remember early on, in my very, very early days, I had a makeup artist tell me that I needed to get an attitude. I had no idea what he was talking about.

Diane Keaton was a big role model for me.

I’ve worked with producers who have told me to lose weight, and I’m not overweight, but they want you to look strange, anorexic, horrible. It’s odd. It’s like they are exerting a power over women, that they want them to look really frail.
Andie MacDowell

Kindness can come from someone on Twitter, it can come from someone on the street, it can come from someone at work. Without kindness, I don’t know what I would do. The greatest part of life is the simple things.

I’ve been practicing Ayurvedic medicine, and I’ve read the ‘Bhagavad Gita’ and Rumi, and these are very important.

There are loads of actresses that modelled. They just weren’t famous. There weren’t a lot that were really known as models that became actresses, but there are hordes of them that did modelling before such as Anjelica Huston, Jessica Lange, Sharon Stone, Demi Moore and Geena Davis. There are loads of ’em.

I remember tap-dancing and singing in front of the TV when I was a kid, telling my dad to stop watching Ed Sullivan or Milton Berle and watch me.

With all that’s going on in our lives and the world, reducing stress is important, and it’s a factor in heart health.

I lived in Paris when I was 20 and 21, and actually knew people that worked for the government there, that talked about terrorism in the country 20 years ago.

I tried to tell them about the dating process because I’m single now and how horrible it is and how many foolish experiences I had had dating. So I was really selling him hard, but the whole time he really wanted me!

We can sit around and go, okay, is there really a plan, does somebody really know what’s happening, is it all planned out, because sometimes it just seems too remarkable to me the things that have happened to me.
Andie MacDowell

I like to work out every day. I run, walk, do machines. I’m not neurotic about food. My rule is, don’t let yourself get over a certain weight. If you gain 5lb, stop before it gets worse.

I loved dancing as a young girl.
Andie MacDowell

I willingly devoted myself to my children and to my husband. I come from a broken home, and I decided a long time ago that I would put my family ahead of everything.

Every woman goes through a lot of agony before she decides in favour of her own happiness or that of her children.

I was six when my parents divorced, and that was tough for me.

Looking back, I realise I had to grow up and be responsible at a very tender age.

As a proud spokesperson for L’Oreal Paris, I have communicated the ‘Because You’re Worth It’ message many times, and know firsthand how empowering it is to say and how empowering it feels.
Andie MacDowell

As I celebrate life, I can’t help but think how young my mom was when she died of a heart attack at 53. My mom didn’t get to meet her grandchildren, but I’m determined to watch mine grow up.
Andie MacDowell

There’s a deep piece of me that wants to be very personal and not share everything with everybody and not put it out there.
Andie MacDowell

I’ve already made a substantial commitment to wildlife by putting my land in the easement. It won’t be developed. It will remain there in perpetuity – will be there for the wildlife.
Andie MacDowell

I don’t want to be agitated so much on television. I don’t need to watch any more agitation.
