She can barely act her way out of a crappy Loreal commercial.

I have a job for you Andy.

She is a crappy actress, but she looks damn fine for 50+.
 
2009-06-18 05:22:23 PM
Has she ever been nude? I don't think so. The girl from "Just Shoot Me" did in Sex, Lies and Videotape.
 
2009-06-18 05:28:29 PM
Poor dear, she just needs some special comforting to make it all better.

I've never seen Four Weddings and a Funeral. Did she flash some naughty bits in that?
 
2009-06-18 05:30:25 PM
Yeah, I'd take her complaint more seriously if I've ever seen her act. I think that Sarandon, Streep, and an auditorium full of aging women would like a word with you.

Also, sex sells. You're suddenly complaining about that when it's the only reason you were in St. Elmo's Fire to begin with? STFU and GBTW. Oh wait...

Judi Dench says "UP YOUR ASS WITH A SHOVEL, HILLBILLY."

Full frontal nudity.
Julianne Moore shows the goods and still makes movies. So does Maria Bello, Salma Hayek, Marisa Tomei, Monica Bellucci, and Diane Lane. Has anyone heard from Michelle Pfeiffer lately? She can go to hell for all we care.

Show your tits or we have no use for you.

At my age of 50 I find that I'm not as picky anymore. That Sally Fields looks totally farkable. I'd even give her a months worth of Boniva for a shot at that ass.

I prefer to say that I appreciate a wider range of diverse beauty.

And
she did nudity in her day. GIS.

Anjelica Huston.
Glenn Close.
Jennifer Tilly.
Jane Seymour.
Helen Mirren.
Julianne Moore.
Judi Dench.

So STFU.

When a script requires an aging actress, the director will find a talented one. When the script requires some nubile young thang, the director will get one of those. Bottom line: get writing, Andie.

When a script requires an aging actress, the director will find a talented one.

According to IMDB, she's got these films in the can:

Happiness Runs (2009) (post-production) .... Victor's Mother
As Good as Dead (2009) (post-production) .... Helen Kalahan
The 5th Quarter (2009) (post-production) .... Maryanne Abbate
The Six Wives of Henry Lefay (2009) (completed)

Betty White is indeed sick of her sh*t.
 
2009-06-18 06:26:35 PM
Well, when more people want to see 50 year old actresses in movies, there will be more roles for them.

It's the free market of entertainment. No matter what the idiots want, they get.

So, yeah, Tits or GTFO.

Work on your Southern accent, Andie.

Have you ever noticed that things that rhyme with vowel are never good? Scowl, Growl.... movies with andie Macdowell......
 
2009-06-18 07:19:13 PM
The thing is, her part in Groundhog Day centered around her being sexually desirable. If she's expecting to get parts written for a 'sexually-desirable wrinkly-faced infertile quintagenarian', then not many of those scripts probably get funded. She should start doing DV-DA.
 
2009-06-18 07:21:22 PM
While Hollywood may indeed have a double standard when it comes to older actresses/actors, Andie Macdowell simply can't act.

It's a testament to the awesomeness of Groundhog Day that it's one of my top 10 favorite movies despite her wooden presence.

So create some. Stop complaining. Start your own production company, hire some writers, find some backers.

Eeew. Like Stevie Knicks, I never understood why anyone thought either was hot.

This is a repeat from every actress 40 years of age or older who can't find work. It seems like every month an article like this comes out from a once-popular actress from the 80's and 90's. The only 40+ actresses who are still working are the ones who can actually act (well, except for Jennifer Aniston but she just turned 40).
 
2009-06-18 07:31:11 PM
Maybe if you took your clothes off you whore, you might get some attention.

/sarcasm-ish
/sarcasm the whore part

Work on your Southern accent, Andie.


You're implying she has another accent she's capable of using.

Lloyd Braun: The only 40+ actresses who are still working are the ones who can actually act (well, except for Jennifer Aniston but she just turned 40).

She's still extremely, extremely hot. You will not besmirch the name of that goddess.
 
2009-06-18 07:33:30 PM
It's funny how actresses don't mind being paid just because they look good until somebody who looks better takes their jerb, and all of a sudden it's "ZOMG hollywood is so superficial!" That being said, I'd still hit it.
 
2009-06-18 07:35:20 PM
I was gonna say something about how she was funny in Multiplicity, but I thought back and realized she was horrible in that and Michael Keaton made that film.

learn to act?

Oh there are roles, you just aren't good enough for them.
 
2009-06-18 07:38:16 PM
From her IMDB page, she has one movie completed and three in post production and set for release in 2009. She also had two movies in 2008.

That still sounds like she's working plenty. They might not be A List films or anything but you've got work. And in this economy, I don't think it's very good to be complaining about not getting enough work while living in a huge house in Beverly Hills when scores and scores of people are loosing their homes.
 
2009-06-18 07:41:25 PM
They only want hot young chicks in movies... I am shocked too learn that.

I always confused Andie Macdowell with Madeline Stowe.

Of course, I would gladly let both sleep with me.

Happy birthday to Isabella Rossellini

If your career is based on roles that require looks but no talent, and you have no talent, what do you think is going to happen when you no longer have your looks?

Hmmmmmmm.............

As mentioned above, Hollywood has plenty of roles for older actresses who can act.
 
2009-06-18 07:56:45 PM
Terrible actress or not, she is one of the most attractive older women in Hollywood.
 
2009-06-18 08:02:39 PM
aiiee: tits or GTFO

Only thing that came to mind....That and the fact that lots of porn movies go for older types.

/I'd love to disappoint her
 
2009-06-18 08:04:02 PM
Hollywood isn't ageist - movie goers are ageist.

If audiences wanted to see movies about sixty eight year old left handed redheads with a limp, Hollywood would happily oblige provided there was a profit to be made.

It's a reactive industry, Andie. How long have you been here?
 
2009-06-18 08:09:11 PM
She was awesome in Hudson Hawk.
 
2009-06-18 08:26:35 PM
She'd make an excellent dick warmer.
 
2009-06-18 08:29:24 PM
Looks like she should have shown her tits before she got old, wrinkly, and saggy...
 
2009-06-18 08:54:32 PM
There are some high profile roles for older actresses, but it's true that once an actress is past 40, she's usually playing someone's biatchy mom, crazy grandma, or horny aunt in a romantic comedy.

So let's bring out Andie Macdowell a the horny, cougar aunt already.
