Andie MacDowell has established herself as an accomplished actress with worldwide recognition.

Next up is the indie feature "Mighty Fine" with Chazz Palminteri and her own daughter Rainey Qualley.

On television, she starred in back to back Lifetime Original movies, "At Risk" and "The Front," both based on Patricia Cornwell crime novels, which follow the Massachusetts District Attorney, played by MacDowell. This marks the first time Cornwell's best-selling books have been adapted into movies. Other recent projects include "As Good As Dead" with Cary Elwes, and "The Six Wives of Henry Lefay," a comedy starring Tim Allen. MacDowell was heard as the voice of Etta the Hen in Paramount's animated movie "Barnyard," was seen in the feature "Beauty Shop" with Queen Latifah.

MacDowell earned praise for her performance in the Emmy-nominated, HBO original film, "Dinner with Friends," where she first worked with Quaid. Additionally she co-starred with Rosie O'Donnell in the CBS telefilm "Riding the Bus with My Sister," directed by Anjelica Huston. Other dramatic feature performances include "The End of Violence," directed by Wim Wenders, which was selected to screen at the opening of the 50th Anniversary of the Cannes Film Festival; Robert Altman's "The Player and Short Cuts," for which the cast earned a special Golden Globe Award for Best Ensemble; "Unstrung Heroes," directed by Diane Keaton and the ever-popular "St. Elmo's Fire."        

MacDowell earned the worldwide title of #1 female box-office draw with her performances in the smash hit romantic comedy "Four Weddings and a Funeral," for which she received a Golden Globe nomination, and the western "Bad Girls" with Drew Barrymore. She also starred in the Harold Ramis holiday classic "Groundhog Day" with Bill Murray. In other comedies MacDowell continued to partner with top leading men including Gerard Depardieu in "Green Card," for which she again earned a Golden Globe nomination, Michael Keaton in "Multiplicity," and John Travolta in "Michael."

She first received critical acclaim and accolades for her performance as a repressed young wife in Steven Soderbergh's "Sex, Lies and Videotape." The film won the Palme d'or at Cannes and garnered MacDowell the Independent Spirit Award and the Los Angeles Film Critics Award for Best Actress as well as her first Golden Globe nomination. Additionally, she has been presented with the coveted Cesar D'Honneur for her body of work, the Golden Kamera Award from Germany's Hörzu Publications and the Taormina Arte Award for Cinematic Excellence.

For her philanthropic work, MacDowell was presented with an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from Lander University and received an Honor of the Arts from Winthrop College. This year also marks the 25th Anniversary of MacDowell's relationship with L'Oreal Paris, for which she serves as international spokesperson.
