Why is Andie Macdowell sorry? The actress has not one thing to be sorry about, but she admitted in a new interview promoting her Hallmark channel series "Cedar Cove" that she has a bad habit of apologizing for everything. She blamed it on her southern roots. She admitted to more about her life and her family in recent weeks. People Magazine shared her latest comments on Aug. 31.
Andie Macdowell has taken her acting ability to the small screen. The actress is best known for her roles in "Four Wedding and a Funeral" and "Sex, Lies & Videotape" on the big screen, but she is starring as a small town judge on "Cedar Cove." That series is now in its second season. Andie Macdowell admitted to some of her bad habits to People Magazine. She has a bad habit of saying sorry for even the smallest things. She said the following about this habit:
"Oh, all southern women say they're sorry. You could do almost anything, bump into some one, don't spread the jam right, you're always sorry. I've had people tell me to stop saying it so much!"
The actress also admitted that she has developed a habit of cursing. She is trying to stop though. The habit only developed recently. It was not something that she used to do frequently. She is trying to say 'shucks' instead of cursing. This might make Andie sound like a gentle southern belle, but she admits that she made some bad choices when she was in her teens, and she is sharing the things she learned from those choices with her own children.
She shares a love of Aerosmith with her daughter, and she admits she went to one of their concerts when she was a teenager forty years ago. She shared the following about her experience at the concert, according to Entertainment Weekly:
"I’ve been very open and honest with my children on what not to do. I told them the truth: there are a lot of things I wish I hadn’t [done]. I was straight by the time I was in the eleventh grade—and that’s a pretty scary comment—but I did go see Aerosmith in the tenth grade. I was not legally drinking, but I was drinking. We drank tequila, and there were three of everybody by the time I got to the concert. I went to the bathroom, and I thought it was very strange that everybody parted when I walked in."
She straightened out her act before she left high school. The actress has also opened up about her mother. She lost her mother to heart disease, and she spoke about how that lost impacted her life in an interview with "The Today Show" recently. She is trying to learn from her mother's bad habits, and she is exercising and eating more vegetables. She suggests both as ways to help prevent heart disease. Her mother died at the age of 53 when Andie was just 23 years old.
She shared one memory of her mother that is connected to her own life now. She watched wholesome television shows with her mother. She said the following:
"My mother and I used to watch Maude, and I think she loved Maude because my mother wanted to see strong women out there with a voice. Marcus Welby, M.D., The Waltons, Little House on the Prairie. Honestly, I didn’t sit around and watch a lot of television. I’ve always been a very active person. But if you could get me to sit down, I loved watching Maude with her."
"Cedar Cove" would definitely fall into the wholesome television category. The series is currently airing season two on the Hallmark channel on Saturday nights.
