Andie MacDowell missed feeling beautiful during the coronavirus pandemic.
The ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’ star gets a lot of “joy” from beauty but she didn’t have many opportunities to get glammed up while largely isolating at home over the last year.
She said: “Beauty brings a lot of joy into our lives.
“And I think our idea of beauty has expanded and is more original, more creative.
“During COVID, we have missed the opportunity to feel beautiful and it’s made us realise how important it is to our lives.”
The 62-year-old star – who has been a L’Oreal Paris spokesperson for the last 35 years – feels no “shame” in getting older.
She said: “I’ve been working for L’Oreal Paris for more than half of my life.
“It’s been a very glamorous experience and also a dignified experience. Getting older is beautiful. We do not need to feel shame.”
