She’s 65 and sexier than ever.
Andie MacDowell opened up about aging to People yesterday as she attended the Cannes Film Festival, telling the mag that men shouldn’t be the only ones who have all the fun in their twilight years.
“I like all the terms we use for older men,” she said. “I want to hold onto those terms. I want to be debonair. Why not? What a beautiful term.”
The “Groundhog Day” actress added that as a society, “we’ve been brainwashed” into thinking that men age like a fine wine while women don’t.
MacDowell continued that “it’s a psychological thing that we’ve bought into because we’ve been fed it for so long,” elaborating that women “don’t allow ourselves to feel good about ourselves and we even perceive [older men] as sexy, because we’ve been taught this.”
The L’Oréal Paris spokesperson — who stopped coloring her hair during the COVID-19 pandemic despite pushback from her managers — said she thinks her career is flourishing because she “dove into being an older woman and accepted it.”
MacDowell has definitely embraced her grays, sharing in 2021 that she was “loving” her “silver fox” look.

Although the “Four Weddings and a Funeral” actress originally said she wasn’t sure if she’d go back to dyeing her hair, she ultimately stuck with silver.
“I felt that I would be happier,” she said in 2022. “And I am happier. I really like it.”
While the former model admitted that she “was struggling” with getting older at one point in the new interview, she’s now “much more comfortable” in her own skin.
“I love being an older woman,” she shared. “I really enjoy it. And it doesn’t feel less sexy.”
