Andie MacDowell is getting candid about onscreen nudity!
MacDowell spoke out about some of the more risqué scenes in her latest film named Love After Love. The 59-year-old actress told PageSix, “I have sex in this. I’m naked. It’s not gratuitous. It’s emotional. I play a lonely lady. First time my character’s doing it, she’s not ready. Then there’s a second time.”
The actress went on to say, “I’ve done sex scenes before and felt all right this time because I knew everyone around. I didn’t care who was there. I felt no shame. The crew was cut back. Precautions were taken. And I knew it’s important to the character.”
She shared that her 23-year-old daughter named Margaret Qualley has also remarked her nude appearance onscreen. She said, “My actress daughter’s been naked in a movie.” She continued, “I have never made my family ashamed of their bodies. Different from my own background. My parents, more European than I, were conservative.”
She noted that after watching Love After Love thrice, the nudity scenes “has no effect on me,” adding, “I feel fine watching it.”
MacDowell also opened up about how she manages to stay in shape. She told the publication, “I think about longevity, and I take care of myself. My cholesterol’s good. I advocate nine hours sleep. Do yoga. Hike every day. I watch my interior life and well-being. And I feel good about myself.”
The actress added, “I stay hydrated. Drink lots of water. Juice daily with fresh lemon and celery. I’m O-positive so I can and do eat meat. I stay size 4-to-6.”
The Love After Love star recently spoke with People, she told the publication of her upcoming 60th birthday on April 21, “How crazy is that? The only thing that scares me at all is the lack of time.” The actress said, “I feel like you can’t waste time. I don’t want to waste my time.”
