I like being a part of something. I like participating and being part of a group.

I was fortunate to be able to do two movies with Harold Ramis. He was the kindest of any director with whom I worked. Harold was a genius. On top of his talent, he could do the ‘New York Times’ crossword puzzle faster than anyone! I am lucky to have known him as well as I did. I will miss him.

I think sometimes we seem to obsess on negativity.

During my 40s, I thought I couldn’t wear red lipstick. I thought it was just too much and I couldn’t do it anymore. I don’t know why. But now, I’m going to wear red lipstick for as long as I want.

For me, it’s sad to say, but I would probably have a spiritual marriage but not a legal marriage, because I think so much about marriage starts to become about finances. It has nothing to do with God or feelings or the romantic side of marriage. It’s about who owns what, who gets what? So what’s the point?

I’m a huge Muppets fan. Gigantic. I think they’re genius. I think they’re some of the best work out there and completely underrated, just because of how genius they are. I love that kind of humor. It’s so innocent but brilliant.

I’m sorry, but in my generation and where I came from, only sailors got tattoos. Not ladies.

I can’t see as well as I used to. Which is actually convenient because everything I see is in extremely soft focus! I think that’s God’s little gift to me.

Wonderful things happen when you turn 50: you change perspective. You ask, ‘Who am I? What do I want to do with my life? What have I not done that I want to do?’

I think hidden underneath a lot of teachers are very sexy women.

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.
Andie MacDowell

I think sometimes I intimidate people. I’ve been told that. But I feel I’m the least intimidating person possible.
Andie MacDowell

My favourite thing is to be somebody else, no longer be me.
Andie MacDowell

I love being an advocate for women as we get older so that we can feel comfortable with ourselves. It’s all about being healthy for me now.
Andie MacDowell

I had a whole bunch of very successful movies. I have worked with some incredible people – incredible.
Andie MacDowell

Do I really need to prove anything to anybody? I don’t feel that I have to prove anything. The only thing that I have to prove is to myself, that I have value.
Andie MacDowell

I love the idea of living a life that is completely humble and quiet.
Andie MacDowell

In the days when I used to tweet, I would encounter comments wishing death upon me. There were people who claimed they were sticking pins in my effigy because they couldn’t stand me. There’s some seriously disturbed people out there.
Andie MacDowell

I’m not a party person. I’m a nerd. I’m not an extrovert in that way at all. The things I enjoy doing could be boring to somebody else.
Andie MacDowell

I can usually tell when a woman is going through a divorce because they look so gaunt and tired and sad. It’s just a huge sadness. It’s horrible. It’s like death. You mourn, but the person’s still there.
Andie MacDowell

I think yoga has given me better posture. People don’t realise how strong it makes you. You have to use your body weight to hold yourself. As you get older, you’re supposed to lift weights, but I find that kind of boring. Yoga is lifting my own body.
Andie MacDowell

When you are authentic, you create a certain energy… people want to be around you because you are unique.
Andie MacDowell

I’m strong. I’m outspoken. I feel like I’m equal to men. I can walk in the woods just as much and as far as a man can. Yet I’m still female. I’m very female.
Andie MacDowell

My mother and I used to watch ‘Maude,’ and I think she loved ‘Maude’ because my mother wanted to see strong women out there with a voice.
Andie MacDowell

I eat an enormous amount of fruits and vegetables.
Andie MacDowell

I make an enormous amount of salads, but my salads are like meals. They’re amazing. I like going down to the farmers’ market and looking to see whatever you can find, because you can put anything in a salad.
