A Woman of 50
Andie MacDowell is a celebrated actress, devoted mother of three, and popular spokes model who has just turned 50 this year. When she was asked during a recent interview with Rachel Sutherland of McClatchy Newspapers what it felt like to turn 50, Andie responded, “It was a relief. There is so much pressure in our culture, this idea that getting older is a hard thing to do. I don’t see it that way.”
Andie explained that her ideal way of maintaining a healthy lifestyle is to practice yoga. “Yoga is a big part of my life. It is really good for your spirit and your bones. (Yoga keeps you) strong and flexible at the same time.” Andie’s advice to her children is to “stay true to yourself. When you are authentic, you create a certain energy…people want to be around you because you are unique.”
And when asked what her next venture would be, Andie replied, “I’m waiting to find out about the pilot (of a TV show she just finished filming). I’m planning on it working out. Or I’ll do more yoga and grow spiritually. One or the other; both…are just fine.
