The former model and Hollywood star celebrates her sixtieth birthday on April 21.
She has been a movie star for over 30 years, despite the ignominity of having her voice in her very first big screen role famously dubbed by Glenn Close.
From that breakthrough role in Tarzan: The Legend of Greystoke, through smash hits like Sex, Lies and Videotape, Four Weddings And A Funeral and Green Card, all the way to Magic Mike XXL, she has always been sexy and sensual but never sleazy.
Watch her hottest moments on screen next.
Vogue and Calvin Klein model Andie made her movie debut in 1994’s Greystoke.
It still seems rather harsh that her Southern drawl was over-dubbed since co-star Christopher Lambert’s mangled vowels were left untouched.
In 1991’s The Object of Beauty MacDowell and John Malkovich play a glamorous and sexually adventurous couple living in a hotel. Don’t be concerned that the actress had her voice cut again, this hard to find saucy clip is from the German version.
Besides, the cheeky star lets her pert bottom do the talking in this memorable scene-stealing moment.
Sex, Lies and Videotape was the hottest film of 1989 and helped give MacDowell much-needed credibility as an actress.
Steven Soderburg’s outrageous tale of sexual mores won best picture at the 1989 Cannes Film Festival, and also starred Peter Gallagher and James Spader. Critics delighted in calling it “scorchingly erotic” and “a delicate and sexually-charged film.”
The End of Violence was huge 1997 box office flop but displayed MacDowell in all her laguid beauty cutting through a swimming pool or firing a gun in her bra and knickers.
In 2015’s Magic Mike XXL the actress played a Southern women worrying her time had past, until Joe Manganiello’s cocky male stripper Big Dick Ritchie reminded her: “It’s still your day.”
The scene had a particularly rude pay off that poor Ritchie had never found a woman able to cope with his oversized member – until now.
Far less smutty was MacDowell’s iconic apparance in Four Weddings and A Funeral. For many fans she is at her sexiest here, dripping wet and wondering if it is still raining.
The line remains one of the clunkiest in cinema history, but the actress looks gorgeous enough for any man to overlook it.
Ove 20 years later, at 60 the star is one of Hollywood’s older leading ladies not to have opted for obvious plastic surgery, and yet remains just as radiant as she enters her seventh decade.
Happy Birthday, Andie.
