Andie MacDowell, a well-liked performer who debuted on screen in the 1980s and was formerly recognized for her unusual curling brown hair, is now promoting gray pride as a silver-haired starlet.
MacDowell, aging gracefully, stated that she likes to “compare herself to George Clooney, because why not?”
Andie MacDowell, a 65-year-old natural beauty with nothing to conceal, is a senior citizen as of her birthday on April 21.
The southern belle made her acting debut in 1984’s Greystroke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes after beginning her modeling career with high-end labels like Armani, Yves Saint Laurent, and Calvin Klein.
Because MacDowell’s drawl was too strong for the part of Jane in the Oscar-nominated movie, Glenn Close dubbed MacDowell’s voice instead.
The soft-spoken, attractive actor stunned the crowd when the amiable Brat Pack appeared in St. Elmo’s Fire as a supporting cast member.
The next year, she starred in Steven Soderbergh’s Sex, Lies & Videotape, for which she received her first Golden Globe nomination.
Her financial breakthrough, further raised following the comedy Four Weddings and a Funeral (1984) with Hugh Grant, may have begun with her top part with Bill Murray in Groundhog Day (1983). This movie has influenced popular culture for decades.
MacDowell, a well-known method performer, went on to play a variety of characters in movies like Harrison’s Flowers and the family TV series Cedar Cove.
Unsurprisingly, MacDowell was chosen to appear in TV advertisements promoting L’Oréal hair products, given her stunning brown hair.
MacDowell confidently displays her make-up-free face, framed by her now gray-silver hair wrapped into a low bun. She was recently photographed in Cannes on a casual outing.
The star from Green Card, who was in the city for the 76th Cannes Film Festival, showcased her natural beauty in a relaxed white striped little dress with dark sunglasses and brown and black platform heels.
Prior Covid, MacDowell claimed that she had welcomed the appearance of her gray hair. In an interview with Vogue, she explained, “My hair started growing at the beginning of quarantine, and every time my kids saw me, they kept telling me I looked badass with my gray hair.”
“When I put it in a bun, all that was visible was the salt and pepper, which is how you could describe me—dark and silver. Why not? I enjoy drawing comparisons to George Clooney. I’ve been saying for a while that I needed to change since it seemed right for my personality and just who I am.”
And even though her management told her that “it’s not the time” to start graying, she insisted that if she accepted where she was at the time, she would be stronger. “It’s now…I won’t have the opportunity to be salt and pepper if I don’t act immediately. I’ve always wanted to be pepper and salt.”
