Despite constantly struggling to love her body, the ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ star explains that she’s decided to stop dyeing her hair as she prefers to embrace her grey post-menopause locks.
AceShowbiz –Andie MacDowell constantly struggles to love her growing belly as she ages. Though so, the “Four Weddings and a Funeral” star declared she has decided to stop dyeing her hair and is proudly going grey post-menopause.
At the New York premiere of her latest film “Good Girl Jane“, the 64-year-old actress told PEOPLE, “Your belly gets bigger as you get older too. And I’ve had three babies. I’m constantly having to work on loving that part of my body. It’s so hard.”
“Believe me, it gets even harder. Because after menopause, your hormones change, your shape changes,” she added. “And I’ve got a very perceptive eye. So you see it. I will see it on other people, I’ll see it on myself.”
Twice-married McDowell has children, 26-year-old Justin Qualley, 32-year-old Rainey Qualley and 27-year-old Margaret Qualley, from her first marriage to ex-husband Paul Qualley. She also insisted she is embracing changes in her body after she decided to stop dyeing her locks during the pandemic.
McDowell added, “During COVID, I could see the roots with my face and with my skin and my eyes, and I liked it. I felt that I would be happier. And I am happier. I really like it. I’m 64, and this is the time of my life. Eventually, I’m going to be silver. And I wanted to have this experience of feeling what it is.”
Talking about how it was her older sister who inspired her to let nature take its course, McDowell went on, “My sister’s full-on silver and she’s only 18 months older than me. I thought she looked so much more beautiful being silver. I was jealous.”
The actress added she is now being told by younger women not to be hard on herself. She said, “If I ever say anything demeaning about myself, because I’ve taught them not to do that, they’ll say, ‘Why are you doing what you told us not to do?'”
