The 9th Sexiest Woman Over 50: Andie MacDowell

9. Andie MacDowell
Born April 21, 1958

Why She Sizzles:  Raised in South Carolina, Andie MacDowell carries herself with Southern gentility—she’s a real lady.

When We First Fell in Love:  She was universally panned for her performance in Greystoke: The Legend of Tarzan, but like she said: “it gave a lot of people something to laugh at.”
Career Highs:

Career Lows:  She appeared in Riding the Bus with My Sister, a 2005 TV movie that redefined the term “unintentional humor.”
  Andie has said she doesn’t believe in plastic surgery, and rightfully says of aging, “You’re pre-programmed to believe that a man can have wrinkles and he’s sexy and a woman has wrinkles and she’s old…I do this nonstop.  I have to defend myself and all women that are [over 40) and say: ‘Yes, we’re still beautiful.’”
