Andie MacDowell was born Rosalie Anderson MacDowell on April
21, 1958 in Gaffney, South Carolina.
Macdowell originally married Paul Qualley in 1986. The two had
three children together until their divorce in 1999. She remarried
Rhett Hartzog in 2001, but the two later divorced in 2003.
In 1991, and again almost a decade later in 2000, People
Magazine chose Andie MacDowell as one of the "50 Most
Beautiful People in the World".
Andie MacDowell is a Spokesmodel for L'Oreal cosmetics and
Andie was an ex-model who first made waves in a series of
Calvin Klein TV commercials. In 1984 MacDowell's performance
in the commercials led to a casting in "Greystoke: The
Legend of Tarzan, Lord of the Apes". Unfortunately, MacDowell's
strong Southern accent prompted directors to hire Glenn Close
to dub all of her lines in the film. She appeared briefly
in "St. Elmo's Fire" the following year.
In 1989 MacDowell would impress producers and audiences alike
with her performance in the racy "Sex, Lies, and Videotape".
Her overnight success landed her future roles in the romantic
drama "Green Card" (1990), and "Hudson Hawk"
and "Object of Beauty" in 1991.
Since her sex-symbol films MacDowell has appeared in memorable
comedy dramas such as "Groundhog Day", "Four
Weddings and a Funeral", and "Michael" starring
opposite John Travolta.
In 2001 MacDowell's dedication to the Graham Children's Health
Center was rewarded with an Honorary Doctor of Letters from
the Lander University in Greenwood, SC.
