Andie MacDowell

Andie Macdowell is among the actresses who began their careers as models. Noticed by Calvin Klein, she appeared in a series of commercials for him. In 1984, she landed her first role in "Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes," alongside Christopher Lambert, and followed four years later with Steven Soderbergh's "Sex, Lies, and Videotape." The latter film, which won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival, introduced Andie MacDowell to a wide audience and propelled her to stardom overnight. Since then, she has acted alongside some of the biggest actors such as Gérard Depardieu in "Green Card," and Bruce Willis in "Hudson Hawk," and worked under the direction of Robert Altman in "The Player." Convinced of her talent, Altman cast her as Ann Finnigan in "Short Cuts" in 1993, a dramatic comedy featuring Jack Lemmon, Julianne Moore, Tim Robbins, and Madeleine Stowe. That same year, she starred in "Groundhog Day" with Bill Murray and contributed to the success of "Four Weddings and a Funeral" with Hugh Grant. Her comedic skills were further showcased in "Michael," "Multiplicity," "The Muse," "Crush," and "The Six Wives of Henry Lefay," where she reunited with "Groundhog Day" director Harold Ramis. In 2000, Elie Chouraqui gave her the opportunity to switch genres, directing her in the drama "Harrison's Flowers." She also appeared in darker films such as Manuel Pradal's "Ginostra" and Douglas Law's thriller. The 2000s were quieter for the actress, appearing more frequently in lesser-known films like the comedy "My Father and His 6 Wives" (2007), the thriller "Dark Side" (2008), and the drama "The 5th Quarter" (2010). Additionally, she ventured into voice acting for the animated film "Barnyard" (2006) by Steve Oedekerk. While often in supporting roles, acting alongside the new generation of Hollywood actors such as Kenny Wormald ("Footloose") and Leighton Meester ("Monte Carlo"), Andie Macdowell returned to television with an episode in the sixth season of the comedy series "30 Rock" and played a leading role in the series "Jane By Design," which ended after eighteen episodes. Undeterred, she quickly found another role worthy of her talent, portraying a judge torn between her career and family in the legal drama series "Cedar Cove" (2014). The year 2015 marked Andie Macdowell's return to cinema after several years, appearing in the sequel "Magic Mike XXL" and starring in the glamorous "Mother's Day" by Paul Duddridge, alongside Susan Sarandon, Christina Ricci, Sharon Stone, and Laura Dern.
