Andie MacDowell wasn’t a strict mom
Andie MacDowell wasn’t a strict mother.
The 59-year-old actress’ daughter Margaret Qualley – who is an actress herself, having starred in HBO series ‘The Leftovers’ – has revealed Andie was quite hands off as a mom and relaxed with rules and discipline.
She said: "It was, ‘You want ice cream twice a day, you can have it’ and ‘You don’t have to go to school if you don’t want to’. And I was like, ‘Yeah I have to.’"
Andie may be known for starring in famous films like ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ but Margaret has confessed she only saw the classic movie for the first time last year.
Speaking to the London Evening Standard newspaper, she added: "We didn’t grow up watching her movies. She made an effort just to be a mom, which I am grateful for."
Meanwhile, Andie – who also has Rainey, 27, and Justin, 30, with her ex-husband Paul Qualley – previously revealed she waited until all her children had flown the nest before she moved to Los Angeles.
She shared: "This is what happens at this time of your life I think for a lot of us. We downsize, right?
"I didn’t avoid Los Angeles because I thought it was a horrible place. But I did want my children to have what I perceived was a more sort of normal childhood. I didn’t want my business to be the main focus of what we were doing in our lives – and it wasn’t."
And Andie is "embracing" her new life and wants to work on penning some scripts as she has many "great stories to tell".
She added: "I am looking forward to making better connections with people in my business, and at the same time, I have two daughters who are in the business. I think it’s a really natural time for me to embrace the world that I work in.
"I have great stories to tell. I think I have wonderful creative ideas, and if I’m in L.A., I may have the opportunity to bring them to fruition, but I can’t make them happen sitting in this cabin in Montana!"
